This weekend held many activities, thrifting, shooting birds (with a camera), dog getting. Yup, we got another dog, on a trial basis mind you. And if she keeps barking all night and all day it will be a trial. She can look cute when her doggie mouth is closed though.
Her name is Goldie, for obvious reasons, she’s a lab mix, about 9 months old. My mother inadvertently took in two puppies this past fall. I say inadvertently, because she really didn’t mean to take them in, they just seemed to just show up in her yard. Goldie being one of them, and her brother Blackie (yup, you guessed, he’s on the darker spectrum of dogdom) being the other. They were playing with my mom’s other dog, Callie through the fence.
Being the kind hearted woman she is, my mother took them. Hoping to find homes for the two little furry siblings. However, no one wanted them. So for the past 7 months now, mom has been fostering two dogs in addition to Callie. That’s three dogs in one little house, way too much for my sweet mother to handle if you ask me. So, we decided to take one of her furry fosters out for a test drive.
Annie was less than thrilled with this decision…
She now must share her window with a barking dog. Which totally gives away their location to unsuspecting neighbors.
Time will only tell what will happen with our new little golden guest. So far, Annie has been the perfect hostess, letting her new friend chew up her favorite outside toys. I didn’t get a picture of this sign of goodwill, since there was nothing left of said toys but a few shards of fluff.
With all the doggie goings on, I haven’t really had a chance to conquer some of my New Years projects. Such as:
1. Paint the kitchen cabinets
2. Make the bedroom less headache inducing and more sleep inducing. Much like this blog post.
3. Take better pictures
4. Organize, organize and organize
5. Stop recycling photos previously used in the same blog post.
Well, I’m off to clean the house that most likely has a fine dusting of black and yellow fur.
