It Finally Happened…

Oh my gosh, I am so embarrassed!  It finally happened last night….I laid down for bed last night early with Daddy around 9:30pm because Daddy is still trying to get better from his cold & congestion, while Mommy was in the kitchen printing off the eBay orders for more wood tombstones (these things are flying out the door!), and Mommy heard a loud “thump”.  She was not sure what it was, so she walked into the bedroom and Daddy was sitting up in bed and told Mommy that I just rolled off the bed!  He said that I was laying next to him on my back with my feet up in the air like I usually sleep and when Daddy rolled over, I rolled over…..and rolled right off the bed!  I could not believe I did that and it scared me when I hit the floor.  By the time Mommy walked into the bedroom, I was already back up on top of the bed by Daddy and I had that look on my face “like I did something”.  Mommy asked what happened and Daddy told her and they both chuckled, but Mommy came over to me and hugged me and asked me if I was ok.  I of course looked at her with such a sad look on my face, but snuggled in her arms for comfort.  Heck, I was ok, just embarrassed the heck out of myself.  I can’t believe I did that.  I’ll have to chalk that one up for the books.  LOL

Welcoming the Arrival of Cooler Weather

GUARDING DADDY’S PUMPKIN

Ah, sleeping at night with the windows open is so nice!  Giving the air conditioner a little break for awhile is always a good thing, and good for your pocket too.  It is just nice that I can now sit in front of the window and feel that nice cool breeze blow on my face, not to mention all of the good smells I take in on a daily basis.  Barking at people passing by our house or doggies that I don’t like through a closed window does not make me sound fierce, but with an open window, I can protect the homestead with some deep growls & barks and everyone can hear me really well. 

 
Sometimes I think that I am nosey, as I watch EVERYONE and everything!  I run from window to window to keep up with the neighbors arrivals & departures and when I see them I run from the front window to the back window to catch a glimpse of them getting out of their car, I watch trash blowing down the street from the car wash that blows by on a daily basis and it always makes me growl at it, I growl and bark at garbage cans (have done that since I was a puppy and tall enough to see out the window), but it always amazes Daddy & Mommy “who” I bark at.  It’s strange that some dogs can walk by our house and all I do I watch them, while other dogs can go by and I go absolutely crazy.  What makes me bark at them and yet leave the others alone?  Not sure why I do this, it will remain a mystery. 
 
One of my all time favorite things to do is, waiting for Daddy to come home.  Mommy always alerts me that “it’s time” to watch for Daddy’s arrival and I put down any toy that I am playing with (or bring it to the front window with me) and I run to the window, sit down, and look back and forth for Daddy’s car.  Almost 100% of the time, I can catch his car coming down the road and my tail starts wagging and I get all excited.  I watch him pull into the driveway and then I run to the back door to catch him driving by (he always stops right by the door and waves at me – awww!) and then I run like a bat out of hell to the back window to watch him get out of his car.  As soon as I see him walking towards the house, I jump off the window sill and tear down the hallway to the back door again (I always beat him to the back door too) and I await the glimpse of him opening the door.  YEAH, Daddy’s home!  I jump all over him and give him kisses and he gives them right back!  I love this time of day because I love my Daddy!  Mommy is there too, waiting for Daddy and always makes sure she has his favorite glass of wine waiting for him and the smell of a good home cooked meal is just about to come out of the oven. 
 
Cooler weather, lots of love, and a pumpkin patch are all the favorite things that are consuming my days!
