Lazy Saturday

The humans were working on some construction project (rebuilding the fire wood bin and loading it for the coming winter), so we were just having a Lazy Saturday around the house.  Hope you are having a great weekend, too!

Queen Natasha smile

At least the weather was nice and cool, which brought a big smile to Queen Natasha’s face. (And we all like it when she is happy).


And our picnic table was used both high . . .


. . . and low.

P.S. – Great news after our post yesterday!  Trapper met the perfect human – a veteran needing a canine companion.  We wish the absolute best to Trapper and his human.

    We are all so happy that just the right human came for Trapper. So glad you both got to meet him.

    I’m glad Trapper has a new home. Adult dogs make the best companions.

    Great news for Trapper. It is heart warming to hear that he got what sounds like his perfect human.

    That is great news about trapped. Every animal deserves a great home. I would take on more if I could because I love animals very much, but sadly I can not. Hugs a kisses to the herd.

November 28, 2021

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.
