It was a rather warm, humid day in the metro Milwaukee area yesterday and I found myself alone after work having to take care of the dogs because my hubby was staying late at work for an event. No big deal since I just got home from being away for 3 days/2 nights for a work trip. I was actually looking forward to b-lining it home from work to see my white fur babies.
Once home, I changed my clothes, rolled up my pants and went out to the backyard to toss the frisbee for Oscar a few times and let Ms. Fanny do her sniffing. Fanny did her nose scavenging and found perfect pee-pee spot and then went and laid on the driveway...tongue hanging out just from her olfactory exercise. Oscar quickly did his business knowing that the quicker he does it, the quicker I will go with him to get his beloved flying disc. I do love that about him.
After about 10 minutes of frisbee tossing I strolled over to Oscar's favorite reward ever - The Hose. He was extraordinarily happy to see the turn of the spigot last night because it was warm and humid. His tongue was down to his chest, giving me the most beautiful, happy smiling face as he ran over to the hose with me. He loves that damn thing. I don't know what had gotten in to him yesterday, but he was like Tigger...bouncing up off all four feet into the air to gobble down the jet stream of clear, cold water. Beautiful and fluid in his movement. Efficient and precise in his water chomping. Every time I turn on the water flow, I know we are in for a good time together...and boy-oh-boy does he make me laugh.
