Morning Meanderings… How Much Is Thay Doggy In The Window?
Good morning! Another overcast day… but I think the weather is supposed to break today…. *fingers crossed* AND another day closer to BEA….. I really need to start packing…
You may recall that in April, on the 11 to be exact, my friend Kerri brought along a little friend to book club that night. Normally I would be alarmed because this guy was REALLY REALLY hairy… and because we are a group of all girls…
however, he also had 4 legs, and was a stray dog, so he was allowed in.
(Bailey our 13-year-old left.. Sam the “new guy” right)
The deal was that Sam could visit while Kerri looked for a home for him. She had seen him running around for four days on the roads, all muddy and matted… no tags, no collar. When she seen him on a hwy that fourth day she put him in her car. She called all the local and vets and HART our local impound, no one had turned in a missing dog.
When she brought him to our house, I too made calls around…. no one was looking for him. I took him to the vet and to the groomer. They believe he is between one and two years old. The way he loves to play, I think he is closer to that one year mark.
When I would be on my laptop, Sam (as hubby named him) wasn’t too far away.
As time went on, Sam just fit right in. We discovered that he loves to be in windows. We have a bench in out bedroom in front of a window and Sam loves to climb up in the windowsill and watch the back yard. In the living room he will get up on hubby’s recliner and then on to the tall coffee table to be in that window. I can see him when I come home – sitting in the window sill…. waiting. He doesn’t hurt anything and it is so cute, we let him do it. Although, I do occasionally refer to him as “cat-dog”
He really is such a good dog. When I come home he launches himself at me like “I can not even believe you came back!” We have a five-minute session where I get down to his level so he can jump and tell me how much I was missed. Everyone needs a friend like that!
Sam has made a wonderful companion for Bailey. Bailey has been so sad since we lost Elmo last fall… in a way, they think we all have been. Sam brought a little life back into our home.
As for today:
WORK! Need to get done here and head in, lots to do with me being gone next week.
Tonight – depending on weather, I would like to go to Group Power and kick boxing but if it is nice, I may ride bike instead. Later I have to get on the lawn… but that can wait until evening..
Enjoy your Wednesday!
