Neglected Pup

This is the look of a dog who is happy and content...for the moment.  See that silly grin?

The poor "child" has been sadly neglected, as you can tell by the lack of Facebook posts which feature her.  This does not mean we love her any less, it just means we lead busy lives.  As I finish up another semester of teaching, we are definitely looking forward to more time to play!

That being said, a growing 1 1/2 year old puppy (in a dog's body) needs exercise and play time.  The winter was not as harsh as it has been in the past - Hallelujah -so we did manage some excursions in the snow.

As the weather continues to become more spring-like, she has discovered she DOES like water after-all.  At least the calm variety.

 She is also intrigued by flowers...and fortunately has not had to taste them!

When she is not outside she has to occupy herself somehow, so there is the terrorizing of the cat...

...helping me write...

...begging for petting...

...watching nature programs on television...

...and after she has begged to go out...the begging to come in.

And we think one of her very favorite activities is to sneak onto the couch when she is sure you are still in the shower.  When she gets caught...she pretends she is totally innocent and simply looks away from you and out the window.

The one thing she does for both of us is enrich our lives, and keep us active.  There is also that thing about unconditional love.

And now we're off to enjoy a lovely spring day!  Get outside and play!
