Frightful Friday

Pooches, the joviality of yesterday’s festive feast soured this morning when it was announced that Fred and Buttons had to go to the vet.  Worse yet, Buttons was going to have to ‘go under the knife’ on her visit!

Starlight and I were awash with worry as they were forced to get in the carriage and be carted away.  To relieve our worries my manservant suggested that we hop in the Hybridmobile and take an early excursion at my school park.  Starlight was reluctant to board the Hybridmobile fearing that my manservant was trying to trick us and take us to the vet as well.  I assured her that was not the case and she finally hopped in.

It was a beautiful morning at my school park and Starlight and I had a good time running to and fro.  Starlight tried to engage a gaggle of geese in a game of chase but they seemed to be an aloof gaggle and Starlight finally gave up in disappointment.  I told Starlight they seemed to be the snooty type and they must not be from around here.

We’re quite hungry now and our pack (minus Buttons who is still at the vet) is about to dive in lunch.  We’re having lasagna but I think I’ll also have a bit of smoked turkey on the side.  A pooch can’t get too much turkey!

Pooches, I’ll see you tomorrow on Silent Saturday.

I wonder if we'll have some more turkey for lunch today?

The Art of Sniffing…

Pooches, not much time to write much of a blog today.  We did manage to get in an excursion to my Choctaw Agency park which we rarely visit.  I decided to dedicate our excursion today to the art of sniffing.

We chose to have our picnic in our den today because of the chilly weather.  Starlight and I had to depend on duck strips because my manservant heated up turnip greens and rutabaga from last night.

Perhaps tomorrow will bring some excitement.

Errand-filled excursion.

Happy Monday, pooches!  Starlight and I were especially looking forward to our excursion today.  Yesterday was a rain-out and brought another cold front.  This morning was chilly and my manservant dressed inappropriately for his walk/run and abandoned his walk/run after a short time.

Upon his return to the den he announced he had two missions of mercy to run in both a not-so-nearby village and in the concrete jungle.  He predicted that he probably wouldn’t be back until late morning.  Knowing that he had an early afternoon lecture to attend, I confronted him about the status of our excursion.  Pooches, Starlight and I received good news!  He said he was in a ‘cocooning’ state of mind today and was going to play hooky from his lecture and spend the after with us pooches after our excursion.

As excursion time arrived and he had returned from his missions, we agreed to have our excursion picnic on our picnic bench in the back yard before heading out to destinations unknown.  Sausage and bacon and waffles (whole wheat, of course) with maple syrup were soon plated and we all tromped out to the picnic bench where a tasty meal was had by all.

The Hybridmobile was boarded after lunch and off we went on an assortment of excursioning and errand-running.  First it was the spirits store for a resupply of Pinot and then to the roadside produce stand for turnip greens and rutabaga.  As we were departing the produce stand I spotted a grove of trees in fine red dress and instructed the Hybridmobile to take us there.  Pooches, we had quite a time running to and fro smelling all of the smells under the trees.  We all agreed that it did not suit our needs as a customary excursion area and Starlight and I left it unclaimed.

From there we stopped by the market for pantry needs and then, because it was such a pretty day, the Hybridmobile ferried us to my overlook.  We bounded across my overlook and enjoyed the sunny blue skies.  My manservant finally said it was time to return to the den so he could cocoon.  Starlight and I regretted that we had to leave but agreed that our back yard was going to get much visiting time from us this afternoon.

One wouldn't think that you raked our yard three days ago!

It is good to survey one's empire from time to time.

My good ol’ overlook never disappoints.

Why do we have to go?  Why don't we just stay here the rest of the day?

Leaf them alone.

Pooches, no walk/run and no excursion today!  From the wee hours of the morning until mid-afternoon my manservant has been raking leaves.

The good news is that my manservant took a ten minute break for lunch on the picnic bench.  The bad news is that it was lentil and split-pea soup!  Yuck!  I scurried back inside and grabbed the pork chop leftovers from the ice box.

About the picture below:  yes, a break from leaf raking was taken to give poor Starlight a bath.

See you tomorrow on Silent Saturday.

Somebody is in trouble!
