Where's my Aunt Cynthia?

My cousin Cynthia recently visited and Bella had a wonderful time with her.
But, of course, the visit came to an end and she had to go home. After Cynthia left, I caught Bella looking wistfully out the front window, pining for her friend.

Chaz and his new best friend

There is a chill in the air even here in Arizona.
Chaz has found a new best friend to keep him warm.

My water puppy

Bella loves daycare.
Bella also loves playing in the water at daycare.
Last week she came home especially wet after a day of water play.
Wet doggie aroma is not pretty.
I tried the towel dry method.
I tried the blow dryer method.
Nothing really worked.
Luckily she was scheduled for grooming two days later.
Used lots of Febreze until then.
MUCH better.

When Chaz joined our family

Nine years ago this week we brought Chaz home to be a friend for Riley. And they've been good buddies ever since.

Silly sleeping position #27B

Sean demonstrating.
Note the form and difficulty of execution.
I give it a 9.5.

I am not spoiled

Not me.
Every dog has a Mommy that scrambles an egg for her, right?

Yesterday, Bella and I were driving home from daycare.
A bunny ran across the street right in front of me and even though I wasn't going very fast, I had to hit the brakes to avoid hurting the bunny.
That motion caused Bella's bed to move forward a little in the bed of our car.
I stopped the car to make sure she was all right and she was not happy with me.
Her expression said it all.
"Wanna slow down up there? Precious cargo in the back! Sheesh!"

Bella loves the deck

There aren't going to be too many more cool mornings so we are enjoying it while we can.

Who did this?

I have a storage unit in the laundry room. Several times a week I come in to find this. Someone thinks it's fun to pull the drawer out. I haven't caught whoever it is in the act yet.
But I'm watching.

My comfort buddy

I recently had some surgery and boarded Bella for a few days while I recovered. As soon as she came home [we were both so glad to see each other] she quickly went into "comfort my Mommy" mode.

Riley having breakfast with Mom

Riley has a definite sweet tooth. He loves biscuits, the sweeter, the better. He was actually pushing my hand out of the way as I was putting this out for him because he couldn't get to his scone fast enough.
