Indian Summer

What gorgeous weather we are having! Here I sit in my shorts and flip flops, having just finished mowing probably for the last time this year. Saturday was just as beautiful as we drove north to deliver Max, the puppy to my grandson, Gavin. While we were driving north, my daughter was driving south. We met south of Des Moines, slap dab in the middle of nowhere, Iowa.

At one point I had all five dogs in my lap ....... We met Adrienne's new beau for the first time. He must have been so impressed to meet her parents. Drew was in his orange day-glo hat he favors, with his giant turquoise Bubba mug in hand. Me? Oh, I was equally impressive in my hot pink shirt with puppy pee stains on the front. At least we were colorful.

No matter, all I wanted was to see Gavin's face when he met his puppy. I remembered the camera. Too bad I didn't check to see that the battery was charged. Gavin reached for Wall-E first and Wall-E was excited to see his boy. Max, the puppy charmed everyone by peeing as soon as his feet touched grass. Adrienne was thrilled, thinking I had already trained him in only one week. I am sure she knows different by now.

Gavin was enchanted and I am told that Max fell asleep with Gavin in his bed the first night. I won't miss getting up with a baby dog at night ....... but, really, is there anything more precious than a sleeping baby in your arms? Human or canine, a baby is a baby.

So happy it is the last mow of the season. Soon it will be time to hunker down with the other doggies and enjoy some quiet time. :)

Glad Gavin loves his new puppers. He sure is cute.

Indian summer is probably my favorite time of the year. I do love spring though. So glad the puppy exchange went well. And no there is nothing better than holding a baby, human or otherwise.

Absolutely! A baby is a baby... I dream of kittens and puppies constantly, and am somehow fearful I might love my little Honey. She is getting so frail and old.. just like me!

Lose, lose! Of course it goes without saying that I LOVE her!
