Square Dog Friday. . . National Dog Day


Today is National Dog Day.
woohoo !
Or if you are a Little Square Black Dog it is just everyday to you.
Wurf !


thehamish with his favorite toy.


The Giggle Ball !

Action !



Giggle Ball are fun play time for all size dogs or so the box said.
But as with some toys our children had that could drive us crazy
in two seconds, this one fills the bill. Loud, loud and loud !

When thehamish first played with it, outside, he knocked
it into the pool and I thought it was broken (yea !) but it wasn't it was just fixed
for the better. The sound is so much quieter.
We play with him on the sofa in the studio, or just toss a few feet because
of his  ACL in both back legs. I want to have the operation to fix them but
every time we plan it, something goes wrong.
The fates are against us.
.
 yesh i thehamish likes to play
i thehamish is a gud smiling gud dug

wurf

As always just because I can, here is your pretty to start the weekend.

  Barrel Cactus in bloom.

The monsoons season is coming to an end and the Barrel Cactus are in bloom.
This is a signal that the monsoon season will end soon
and our beautiful and cooler fall will be starting soon.

Monday in Tucson

I have wanted to expand the Gud Duds window under one of my work tables.
I wish I would have done this sooner.
Watson really loved looking out of the smaller window. 

 .

My sweet Watson looking at his love Mia.

 .

 Still needs to be painted.

 .

 thehamish and the new window. 
.

 The monsoons are winding down but we still have such
wonderful clouds.

 Always so interesting ! Later there was some rain, lightning and thunder.
.

 I was sitting at the dining room table and was amazed
at the cloud reflection on the glass top.

 .

I am always amazed by what I see everyday by living here.

..................

And as always just because I can here is your pretty to start the day.

 .

Some sweet photos of Watson.

One of the things I miss this summer is seeing my sweet baboo Watson napping in the sunlight
from the skylight in the entryway.
On a hot summer day to lay in the sunlight on the cool tile floor 
in an air conditioned home must have been heaven.

Here is your pretty for the start of the weekend.

I have been entering John's "Blogger contest for the Trelawnyd Flower and Vegetable Show".
 It is his followers way to enter the crazy veggie online contest.

You find a vegetable  from your garden (or bought for us bloggers) and
then think up an idea. It is suppose to be your idea, Not pinterest but...
.
The esteemed judge picks a first and second place from the photos taped up in the village hall.
It is a crazy way for John's followers to enter the show even though we live across the pond.
For me it is so much fun to think up an idea and then try to make it. Just fun.
.

This was my entry for 2016
My garden grows Prickly Pear Cactus.
 I used the Pads or Nopales and Fruit or Pears for my monster entry this year.
I am still picking out the very thin thorns or glochids from my arms, legs and hands.
What a huge mess.


Last years monster, I love Space Aliens and monsters and take time to really think about
what I will make.
..
 Here is The Angryparsnip disposing of a carrot that everyone
picks and eats instead of trying  how wonderful Parsnips are.
Woe.

 Prickly Pear cactus fruit.

Zombie Walking Dead cactus fruit from last year.
.

None won !
Woe
Oh woe oh woe is me.
As thehamish would say.
