Lola loves to jump around in the water, and she has started taking Toby's ball from him in a game of keep away. Then she decides to take the ball into the water, which isn't a good idea since she can't pick up the ball in the water, she only makes it sink more or she pushes it farther out in the water where I can't get it so then I have to send Toby out in the water to get the ball.
These are chuck-it balls, which aren't cheap, so I want the damn things back.
Look at her dirty face! This is what she's really like:
Don't let that cute little face fool you, she can be a terror.
Lounging around today, working on my knitting project, which, unfortunately, I know I'm not going to complete in time. That bugs me. I have been trying so hard for so long to finish what I start (and in a timely manner) that this is a step back. At least I tried, right?
Hey, has anyone seen these or tried them?
These are gorgeous and I would love to get one but they are SOOOOO very expensive I don't want to have serious buyers remorse. Does anyone have any feedback on these? I'd love to hear it.
I hope your day is restful.
Enjoy your day.
For most of us humans, acceptance, of anything, is so very hard to do. Whether it’s your current job, living situation, romantic life, physical attributes, or traffic issues, we just don’t want to accept things as they are. We are stubborn and fight and resist and pout and just want it to be the way it’s “supposed” to be.
But what we resist, persists.
So I’ve taken a cue from my dogs and have just stopped resisting. Animals are so adaptive, they figure it out quickly and just go with whatever is happening at the moment.
Anna (right) has been without her front right leg for almost 4 years now. The very next day after surgery she was in the backyard playing with Lola. Yes, really. She accepted what the world handed her and added something powerful to it.
So next time instead of resisting, try accepting then adding just one thing, however tiny it may be, and sit back and wait and see what happens. You may be pleasantly surprised.
Enjoy your day.
I have some senior pets, which I think they are the best. People overlook senior pets because they are old; they are not new, and cute, and funny and precocious. But that’s not the point, is it?
With senior pets you know what you’re getting, their size and temperament, and they are not as rambunctious. And most of the time, they’re still cute, right?
Thinking about all these beautiful things today and how lucky I am to have them in my life.
All is well here, keeping very busy, and some personal life changes happening. It’s all good stuff though.
I hope you are well.
She has it rough.
If only all living beings were this lucky.
Have a wonderful, restful day.
