Rainy reading day turns out well

Pooches, instead of going on an early morning walk/run today, my manservant travelled into the concrete jungle in the rain for an appointment with his skin vet.  When Starlight and I realized that the overnight rain was continuing with a steady drizzle, we decided to continue our slumber.

My manservant finally returned to our den and said it appeared it was going to be a good day for reading and headed to our Davenport with books in hand.  By lunchtime there was a break in the rain and, after a visit to the kitchen to heat our lunch, we sloshed out to our picnic bench and enjoyed a leisurely lunch until another rain shower moved in our direction.

In mid-afternoon my manservant said we could attempt an excursion between showers.  The Hybridmobile took us to my wee park in the corner of my Rez.  Avoiding the puddles as much as possible, we walked along the shoreline.  The rain had dealt a blow to the usual numerous scent found at my park but we enjoyed the SUNSHINE anyway.

We’re returned to our den to begin late naps while my manservant resumes his reading activity.

Holiday excursion!

Pooches, it is Monday and that normally means wash day but my manservant said he was taking the day off to rest from his academic responsibilities over the weekend and to observe George Washington’s birthday.  After he completed his morning walk/run activity we spent a lazy morning around our den.

As lunchtime approached, my manservant headed to the fish monger and selected a nice specimen of cod.  After half an hour in the kitchen we paraded out to our picnic bench and thoroughly enjoyed a bounty of fish and chips!  They hit the spot and it was with full bellies that we boarded the Hybridmobile for a trip to my school park.

Because of the holiday, my school park was packed with people and pooches enjoying picnicking and playing around my new playground.  Starlight and I were quite entertained as we watched the young pups scampering about.  Plenty of smells were available for sniffing.  We spent most of our time along the waterfront before deciding afternoon naps were in order.

Pooches, summer-like weather is upon us today and we plan on shortening our nap period to allow us to lounge about in our back yard this afternoon for an extended period.

Sunshine

Hurry up!  We don't won't our fish and chips to get cold.

Excursionless again!

Pooches, for the third day in a row we missed our daily excursion.  My manservant had a visit to his teeth vet yesterday and wound up there all afternoon for a failed procedure.  Today, my manservant spent the day preparing for his weekend of academic responsibilities and, other than his yoga class, he has spent the day cussing his computer!

Starlight and I did manage to convince him that at the very least we deserved lunch at our picnic bench.  He acquiesced and prepared a fine dish of chicken teriyaki.

Starlight and I have napped all day (for the third day in a row).  My womanservant is going to have to take over excursion duties tomorrow while my manservant is in academia or Starlight and I will be overcome with cabin fever!

Wordless Wednesday

Some days are meant for reading in front of a fire while a pot roast slowly cooks in the oven filling our den with enticing smells.

Moldy Monday

Pooches, my manservant left extra-early this morning for his walk/run because a crew of mold busters was scheduled to work on our den’s air system today.  It wasn’t long after my manservant returned when the mold busting gentlemen arrived.  Starlight and I were banished to the back yard for the duration of their work.  Pooches, what a noise arose from inside our den when the large equipment they toted with them was turned on.  Of course, Starlight and I were obligated to bark endlessly at such ferocious noise.  By the time they departed in late morning, Starlight and I were exhausted!

With the mold not merely dead, but really most sincerely dead, my manservant proceeded to begin the cleanup duties.  A break from the cleanup was taken at lunchtime and a bowl of lentil soup was heated for my manservant and a boeuf-cheese burrito was cooked for Starlight and me.  We enjoyed our lunch at our picnic bench before enjoying a stroll around the poochhood with Molly’s manservant who had stopped by our den for a visit.

My manservant has resumed his cleanup duties.  Having missed our regular morning naps, Starlight and I plan to snooze quite deeply this afternoon!

Sunshine

You can have the lentil soup. Starlight and I will split the boeuf and cheese burrito!
