Academic responsibilities prevail

Pooches, my manservant announced this morning, upon his return from his walk/run, that the preparation for his academic responsibilities was going to be an all day affair and that there would be no excursion today.  Humph!   Cousin Maggie, Starlight and I took turns playing with the tennis ball (pooches, we need more than one) and occasionally would venture outside for a bit of sniffing.

Lunchtime rolled around and my manservant took a break from his work in the library to prepare lunch to be enjoyed on our picnic bench.  I scolded him for his menu selection in light of Cousin Maggie being our guest.  I retrieved duck strips for us pooches.

After lunch my manservant surprised us by suggesting that a short excursion could be undertaken through our poochhood!  Hooray!  We three pooches made the most of our stroll and sniffed every nook and cranny we could find.  About the time my manservant urged us back to our den so he could resume his work, our eyelids had grown heavy and we were eager to begin our afternoon naps.

My manservant is back in our library now and Cousin Maggie and Starlight are snoring away in their beds.  Pooches, I’m headed to join them.

Since we have company you could have come up with a better choice for lunch than basil/tomato soup and egg salad with olives!

Maggie, this is our favorite spot in the poochhood for smells!

The sky looks especially blue today after all of those overcast days.
