Our Wally–Six Years Young Today

I thought I’d share these photos of our Wally.  Do you remember him as a puppy?  He was so cute!  We’re celebrating his sixth birthday today.  Happy birthday, Wally!!

These days when a stranger passes by they always comment, “Aw, there’s an old one”.  See, the white mask that many Goldens develop is becoming more pronounced on Wally.  I’m always quick to proclaim “he’s only five!”  Six now, of course.  But I don’t want to think of our Wally getting older.  I want lots and lots more years with him.  Endless years.  He’s still cute.  And young.  So there.




I love our Wally and his bright eyed, happy face, mask and all.  And when his face turns snow white I’ll take it in my hands and kiss it all over and tell him how beautiful he is.  Our beautiful, dear, sweet, good, kind, six years young, Wally.  Thank you for sharing this special day with us.

Our Day

On this day there was no housework or gardening or stamping.  We took the dogs up the river and simply played.  Had a picnic lunch, hiked along the river’s edge, threw sticks, waded in with the pant legs rolled up, lounged on the rocks.  The river looks more like a stream with its water level much too low for this time of year.  However, there were holes deep enough for Wally and LuLu to swim in, and I don’t think it mattered much to them, anyway.  As long as they could get wet.  They do love the water!


Wally’s waiting for one of those sticks.


LuLu’s striking her showgirl pose.


And the photo below is about as good as it gets when it comes to Rich taking a picture of me.


I love Wednesdays and weekends.  Pretty soon I’ll be loving all the days in-between, too!  Have a good day!

We're Officially in a Drought

Poor Mr. Froggie's rain gauge has been empty for too long.

We got very little rain over the winter, and it doesn't rain here in the summer, usually, so we've got a long way to go before we can even hope.  I don't like to think what could happen to the garden, but that's a small worry compared to what some folks may experience.  Keeping my chin up and fingers crossed!
