Bathroom Buddy *sigh*

I thought that once my children got old enough to be functional on their own, that I would have bathroom privacy again.  Uh huh. That’s just Fantasyland when you own dogs.

Pictures? Why?

Boring, mom.

Boring, mom.

 

Wake me when you're done. Yaaawn.

Oh, well.  At least he’s not trying to jump into my lap or sniff my underwear! 😀

Having Fun Is Exhausting

Having fun biting, growling, throwing, chasing, and shaking your toys can just wipe you out.

Babysitting (I Will Not Be Getting A Second High Energy Dog Anytime Soon)

Getting back to catch-up.  Also in July, right after Saver came home, we babysat my mother’s dog for a week.  Daisy is a Schnoodle (Schnauzer/Poodle mix). The first night was just so much fun.  Daisy howled, whined, screamed, and barked for 4 hours solid. Which did not make anyone happy.  But what was really fun was the fact that these two rarely quit moving the entire week.  And I ran Daisy with Ryder. I wish I could say I had lots of really cute pictures, but I was too tired.  I will not be getting a second high energy dog anytime soon. 🙂

Meet Crazy Daisy.  Crazy Daisy will eat your house if you don't keep an I on her.  When she kept stealing Ryder's Dura Chew, we ran out and bought her one of her own.  Here they are enjoying a good chewing session giving us time for some tea and lunch.

Crazy Daisy was too much even for a 6 month old Border Collie pup.

Gotta Love Border Collies

Border Collies are very alert, intelligent, and demand to be part of the family. So when I started taking pictures of other family members, of course, Ryder wanted his face in there too!

Me, too!  Me, too!

“Me, too! Me, too!” he says, as he repeatedly bumps the bottom of the camera.  As soon as I pointed it at him, he sat quite nicely and stuck his nose right up there. “Gotcha!” I say and he trots away quite pleased with himself. 😀
