Entering Monday Morning

Some of us might be a little more excited than others about entering Monday morning and the start of a brand new week.

Frankie Suave entering Monday morning

Our Hu-Dad wakes up early most mornings (around 5 a.m.) and reads his newspapers and emails. After that is done, we head out to the yard. The photos in today’s post are from that initial yard entry.

Some of us are more eager than others to start the day as you can tell by our faces. And, yes, some of us might have been happy napping just a wee bit longer.

Don’t worry though. At least one of us is always eager to greet the morning. In fact, he is eager for anything. Guess who enters Monday morning with the most enthusiasm?

    As I was scrolling down and knowing that Boom-Boom would be next, I immediately laughed and broke out in a huge smile. Love you Landon!

    Boom Boom-you have so much joy in all you do-even MONDAY mornings! I know the rest of the herd is grumpy but not you-awesome.

    I’d love to have your enthusiasm to greet a Monday morning, Boom Boom!!!!

    Only if we could all be as enthusiastic about Monday as Boom. Roscoe I agree with you !

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
