YES OR NO?

Pooches, it is finally decision day in my homeland!  What will the outcome be?

Because Starlight and I would be cancelling out each other’s votes (she’s a “no” and I’m a “yes”), we have decided to stay home from the polls!

My manservant headed out early this morning to take the Hybridmobile to the Hybridmobile vet to have her new front paw attached.  Before returning to our den my manservant stopped by his walk/run park and then proceeded to that no-so-nearby village that he frequents for a mission of mercy.  It was almost excursion time by the time he returned.

At his suggestion we dined at our den and enjoy chicken burritos.  Woo hoo!  It was quite tasty and Starlight and I commented that we should have it more often.  After washing and drying the dishes we all loaded up in the Hybridmobile (who was quite proud of the new front paw), pausing only to “ooh” and “ah” at the said paw.  They Hybridmobile proudly rolled down the lane and headed for my sunken trace park.  It is so good to get see all of my frequented parks again after our long absence.  The smells were quite dandy, the temperature was not too hot, and we had a grand time prowling about the area.

We’re getting ready for afternoon naps before we spend the evening glued to our shortwave radio to hear the results in my homeland!  I’m sure it is going to be a long night.  Woo hoo!

Starlight, I'm glad to see my sunken trace again.

Return to normalcy.

Pooches, things seem to finally be back to normal around our pack.  My manservant was quite chipper as headed out for his morning walk/run before sunrise this morning, saying he had  plenty of things on his agenda for today.

When he returned to our den he indicated that he had resolved to resume his thrice-weekly 16 kilometer velocipede ride.  He picked up the Velocipede and struggled and struggled to stow it in the boot of the Hybridmobile.  Success was finally achieved (although I think neither the Hybridmobile nor the Velocipede were particularly happy about the cramped conditions).  It was nearly an hour later before the Hybridmobile delivered them back to our den.  My manservant reported that he had “not quite” completed a full 16 kilometers because the Velocipede was so out of shape and was not quite up to speed yet.  As he walked inside Starlight asked him if his legs were made out of rubber (as they were wobbling a wee bit).  As is his frequent custom, my manservant ignored the comment and said he was headed outside to work in the flowerbeds by the pergola to prepare them for fall planting.  Starlight and I headed to finish our morning naps.

After much of the gardening activity had been accomplished, my manservant had a wardrobe change and headed to his yoga class followed by running a few errands.  Starlight and I resumed our morning naps.  Pooches, it was over two hours before he returned from this latest round of activity.  It seems that after a stop at the local postal facility the Hybridmobile was involved in a minor incident  involving a curb and the Hybridmobile’s front paw resulting instantly in a flat paw.  My manservant was drenched in sweat as a result of having to change the Hybridmobile’s paw in a hot asphalt parking lot.  He was none too happy!

I pointed to the clock, noting the late hour, and suggested that we undertake an excursion immediately.  My manservant clearly want to collapse on the Davenport but relented and we all happily hopped in the Hybridmobile.  After stopping by a fine establishment to procure our lunch, the Hybridmobile delivered us to my manservant’s walk/run park.  After crossing the creek we selected a fine bench to perch and pulled out a ground boeuf burger!  Woo hoo!

The customary after lunch stroll followed and Starlight and I had a grand time sniffing and skipping stones across the creek.

We’ve returned to our den where my manservant has collapsed on the Davenport and Starlight and I are getting ready for afternoon naps.  It is good to be back in our routine!

Starlight, everything seems to be the same at my footbridge.

Say, Sunshine, why don't we eat our lunch on that bench?

No fair!  You took a bite of our boeuf burger before our pre-lunch photo-op!

Sunshine, there's no need to hurry.  The manservant is moving slowly.

I’m baaack!

Well, pooches, I’ve had quite the hiatus from my blog!  Two weeks ago my manservant and womanservant told us one morning that we were going to have a road trip to Elvistown to spend a couple of weeks with our brother and sister, Fred and Buttons.  Woo hoo!!!  What they failed to tell us was that they (not me, not Starlight) were going to keep going and wind up for two weeks in me homeland, Scotland!!!  I was a wee bit angry when they let us know that we were not going to be traveling with them!  After all, what better place for a couple of West Highland White Terriers to go than the West Highlands of Scotland?

Starlight and I arrived in Elvistown a bit melancholy but Fred and Buttons stepped in and soothed our hurt feelings by being great host/hostess  during our stay.  When my manservant and womanservant arrived Thursday to pick us up on our way home Starlight and I had to confer to decide whether or not we would go and leave the fun behind!

The jet lag recovery seems complete and we headed out for an after lunch excursion to my overlook on my Rez.  I was glad to see that it was no worse for the wear after my absence.  The day was quite cool with a nice breeze blowing off the water (my manservant claims he brought the weather back with him from Scotland).  Starlight and I had a grand time sniffing about.

Pooches, it is good to be home.

Nothing seems to be out of order at my overlook after my long absence.

Early morning excursion again.

Pooches, when my manservant returned from his sunrise early morning walk/run, he was quite excited.  He related that the temperature had moderated, was less humid and he had walked through a couple of pockets of air that were actually cool!  Woo hoo!

He proposed that we undertake our excursion immediately.  Starlight and I cheered and we hastily hopped into the Hybridmobile, hoping that the cool air pockets would hang around for a while.  The Hybridmobile happily hauled us to my school park where we embarked on a 5K walk/run/amble to my overlook and back.

Pooches, the breeze coming off of my Rez was wonderfully cool and waves were splashing up into the grass.  Starlight was quite boisterous as we walked along, running nonstop to and fro.   There were many pooches out walking their servants and Starlight felt the need to bark furiously at each one.  When we weren’t passing pooches Starlight was going every direction except the one that led to our overlook.

My manservant finally grew tired of her antics and we reversed our direction and headed back toward my school park and the Hybridmobile.  My manservant said he was determined to go to my overlook but we would forego walking there.  On the ride in the Hybridmobile to my overlook I chastised Starlight severely in hushed tones on the back seat.

As we arrived at my overlook Starlight, still stinging with her harsh reprimand, behaved much better.  My overlook was wonderful in the early hour and we had a grand time romping about it.

The remainder of the morning was spent snoozing at our den while my manservant ran errands.  Lunch was prepared by my manservant at the noon hour.  Pooches, in recognition of today being National Dog Day, my manservant cooked up a special meal:  pork chops, grits with gravy and green peas!  We headed out to our picnic bench and had quite a feast!

My manservant is off running errands again and Starlight and I are headed to our naps with full bellies!

Here’s to you, pooches, on National Dog Day!

The cool breeze is making waves splash onto my walkway.
