Saver of Bugs had this series of pictures on her phone of her cat Armel and my dog Ryder having a little fun together back in September. Not bad for only knowing each other a couple of months at this point. Enjoy! (And the white blur you see in some of the pictures is Ryder’s waving tail!)
Unfortunately for us, we can’t leave Ryder alone outside for more than a few minutes ’cause the little stinker is still eating inappropriate things. *sigh* So, of course, Ryder was enthralled with the first real snow of the year. So much so, that he just kept asking to go out to pee, and then wouldn’t, because he just wanted to rub his face in the snow and hop around like a bunny. Potty trips are NOT play trips. Which meant many fruitless trips outside and it was making us crazy. At one point I loaded a Kong with treats and stuck him in his crate so I wouldn’t strangle his butt.
My daughter and I scrambled to clear up a long block of time for chasing and rambling so we could get him outside before he lost his little mind. Or we lost ours. 😀 Luckily we have a partially wooded lot of an acre and a half to run his little legs off in. So after a trip outside to hide toys in the snow, I opened the door and turned him loose.
Thanks to Saver of Bugs for the handful of pictures she was able to get of a speeding puppazoid in between gusts of snow.
An hour later a much more relaxed and happy puppy came back to the house with us. He got to nap and we had to get back to work. Just not fair!
I would love to give credit where credit is due, but this video has been passed around. Not to mention, I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to hear the back story on this! *sigh* Enjoy!
If you know where this is from, please let me know!
Back in 2012 the Renaissance Festival had cleared out a new section for exhibits. In that new section were some unbelievably awesome old trees. The trees were listed as being between 270 – 300 years old. People were forming lines to take pictures of their kids with these trees, me included. They were sooo awesome.
This year I noticed that there were many booths right along the tree line and I remembered the trees and went looking for them and their plaques. What I found was disturbing and sad.
I was so depressed over the fate of these trees. They were so beautiful back in 2012. I was told by a tree trimmer that removing all the trees around old trees can cause problems for the old trees because the trees around them offer protection from the elements. It’s just sad.
