There's been a lot going on around here, so there's lots to talk about. Like birthdays! and presents that were made. New dresses, ladies trip to New York, rowing in the rain, lunch with dear girlfriends from forever ago, a lovely dinner, taxes... and having a big dog visitor.
We got to dog sit for our friends for a few days. Samson is a wonderful old-ish German Shepherd. So laid back and sweet. We went on lumbering walks through the neighborhood. We drove around with him and laughed at how exciting the car ride was. We told him to lie down in his bed and... he did! The mister and I looked at each other in shock as it occurred to us that dogs are not cats. How lovely!
He was so calm the kitties decided he was mostly alright.
Our idyllic dog time ended with our ninety pound visitor napping in bed with the mister.
An occurrence, only hours earlier, we couldn't imagine happening. But Samson was happy to convince us otherwise.
oh look at that little muffin!
