Inspire your heart with StuART Blog Hop   3 comments

Ranger from The Adventures of Ranger is hosting a blog hop in loving memory of Stuart from The Scottie Chronicles. Isn’t that a cool idea? So we had to join! Since Mommy doesn’t have photoshop and doesn’t really know how to play around with her photos much, we’re creating our own StuART by posting some artistic selfies.

Version 2
Waiting…

Here’s a photo of our sweet Miss D, from way back in the early days of 2010 when she first joined the family. I must admit to shedding a few many tears while searching for the perfect artwork. I like to think Miss D is waiting and watching out the window for us now. In between running and playing in God’s dog park, of course!

What’s over here? Let’s go!

 And here’s one of Rocky and Selena, for once in agreement instead of fighting over which direction to yank Mommy on the leash. It was a terrible photo, but with a little editing, it makes a great work of StuART don’t ya think?

Thanks, Ranger, for such a lovely idea! Truly inspired 🙂

If you look closely, you’ll see Miss D’s photo tote bag in the background during nap time!

The Escape Artist   9 comments

Selena escaped last week.

Don’t let her fool you. She may look adorable, sweet, and tiny, but Selena is far from innocent. She is an Instigator, a Troublemaker with a capital T.

Who, me?

 

While three of the four sides of the backyard are fenced with 6-foot wood picket fencing, the fourth side is simple wire fencing. Two-thirds of that wire fencing is still good. That’s the section installed by the neighbor behind us. The final third of the wire fencing was sloppily installed by the previous owner, as part of the contract when Mommy bought the place ten years ago. How long it’s been breached is anyone’s guess. Miss D was not an escape artist.

 


 

But Selena noticed the hole immediately. Mommy has spent the last month in denial. Procrastinating and pretending neither Selena nor Rocky would want to wander. No, not these two sweet innocents!

But sure enough, the other night Mommy was getting dolled up for dinner out with friends. She let Selena and Rocky out into the back yard, told herself, “They’ll be fine. They haven’t tried to escape once. I don’t have to watch them every minute,” and went back inside to finish getting dressed.

Five minutes later, Mommy calls the dogs in. Here comes Rocky! … Where’s Selena? … WHERE’S SELENA?! …

Mommy could hear her tags jingle-jangle, but she was nowhere to be found. She took her opportunity and escaped through that back fence! SELENA!!!!! SELENA!!!!

Mommy was in a panic! Have you ever tried to find a tiny black dog, at night, in a muddy wooded area, while wearing dress slacks? Finally, Selena came bouncing back into sight, no shame, no remorse. So, happy ending?

Almost. For a truly happy ending, Mommy had to pay a visit to the local hardware store.

  1. 50 feet by 4 feet wire fencing? Check.
  2. Six 6-foot metal T-posts? Check.
  3. T-post driver? Check.
  4. Fencing pliers? Check.
  5. Gloves? Check.
  6. Safety goggles? Check.
  7. Feeling powerful and able to do anything? Check.

New wire fence for the win! Oh, and the glow-in-the-dark dog collars should arrive next week.

Selena – 1, Mommy – 2
