The Dreaded Nail Trim

The temperature has come down, thank heaven, so I can think about getting outside again.  Tonight I decided it was time to comb everyone and to trim their toenails (a paw-di-cure!).  I know from past experience to leave Sawyer until last since he does not like to be primped.  I combed the other three and then cut Miss Blossom's toenails.  She just looked at me with her big eyes like she was thinking that she just wanted the ordeal to be over with quickly.  Baylee was next but after I picked her up I remembered that she goes to the vet next week for a check up so I'll let them do hers. Then I realized that both of the boys had disappeared.  When I looked around I had to laugh - they were both sitting in the yard like statues!  I know that they were thinking that they were invisible and I wouldn't be able to find them! But they were found and had the dreaded nail trim!  And guess who was the best behaved of all four...Sawyer!

The All-Around Good Dog!

Blossom, what are you doing?

I had forgotten about taking this picture of Blossom using the computer (Jaydon staged it, can you tell?).  It was fun to find it in my picture stash!

Cheese Lovers

I love cheese, just about any kind.  I like it on food, in food, and as a snack.  If I want a snack before bedtime I usually eat cheese, either a few slices from a deli bought cheese or a few cubes carved off a block.  Since this is an acceptable snack for the dogs I usually share a few bites with them, and they love it!

Since Jaydon has been gone and I was travelling during July I did not grocery shop.  If I ran out of something I didn't worry about replacing it.  Cheese was a non-essential item so when it was gone, it was gone. Well, yesterday I was pretty much out of everything so I went grocery shopping.  Last night, close to the 10 o'clock news time, I went in the kitchen to prep the coffee and do a few pre-morning chores.  When I was done I opened the refrigerator and the tray where I keep the cheese.  Instantly, I had four little noses trying to get in the tray!  I didn't say anything (they know the word cheese), I just reached down and opened the tray.  How did they know that I had bought cheese and that it was down in the tray again?

I have to think that they are just pretty darn smart!
