But by Monday it'll be seasonably cool and wet. YES, blessed rain! We are in the middle of a 50 year drought her in North Texas. As much as I like having my top down, and Boo likes it, too; we really need the three days of rain that are forecasted.
Boo hadn't been for a ride in at least a week, so she got to go out yesterday when I left the house. She is one stylin' puppy girl! Whenever I leave the car, she immediately gets in the driver's seat. I can't tell you how many times I've returned to the car and some stranger will tell me that she looks readt to drive away. I've got several comebacks ready for them:
- Yeah, but she doesn't have opposable thumbs. Can't grip the steering whell without those.
- That's why I always take the keys with me. SHe ahsn't figured out how to hotwire the ignition, yet.
- Her back legs aren't long enough to reach the gas and brake pedals, are they girl?
- I just wish she'd learn how to pop the trunk when I'm carrying all these packages!
If she has curled up and taken a nap because I've been gone too long, I call out to her. Once I called out, "Where's my Boozer?" This woman walking ahead of me whipped her head around and stared at me, like maybe I was talking to HER. I pointed at Boo, and said, "that's her nickname." She nodded and gave me an uneasy smile.I'm gonna go work in the yard for a bit while it's sunny and warm. Then the dawgs get an extra special early Christmas SURPRISE! I'm gonna back the Dearly Beloved's truck into the side yard and they are gonna get a BATH! Oh, Yeah, that's gonna be fun! Thank heavens for the truck. No bending over, no wrestling them into the bathtub, no paying $40 to the groomer. Just get them to jump into the bed of the truck and suds them up and then tie 'em to a tree so they can't wallow in the grass/dirt 'til they're dry. Easy cheesy!
Y'all have fun, too.
