Mandibles Of Doom. . .

He comes when I call him MANDIBLES !
I am in so much trouble.

Oh My Goodness, what have I done ?
 is you talkin' about me  ?

Just look at those paws.

Yept, that little puddle of black is ....

this !

It has rained so much we can not cut the grass. It is a jungle out there.

Looks like my sweet baboo Watson.

Puppy thehamish.

If you missed the reason why mandibles is here be sure to
check out my Friday Square Dog blog.


Here is your pretty to start the week.

Sunset are amazing in Tucson.
But every once in awhile when you have a lot moisture on the air the sun is so golden 
the blue of the sky turns a azure blue. It is so startling in the depth of blue.
I just sat outside and watched the colors change.


And then in a instant the colors change again.

thehamish is not sure about thefurry.


Here is your pretty to start the weekend
A photo of Watson and the baby thehamish

Short story, after Watson died we started looking for a friend for thehamish.
He was missing Watson so much.
I was so sure I could find a shelter friend for him. 
I wanted a older unadoptable big dog that needed a home or a small terrier. 
Spread the love around. 
We went on so many meet and greets with dogs.
Boy do I have stories..... but they had to get along with thehamish. 
I even had a dog here for over 2 weeks, that I had his teeth fixed, pumped him full of meds 
but he wanted to be the only dog. For us not a good mix.
If I didn't have thehamish I could have adopted several great dogs.
A year and a half later we found a Scottish puppy "to be" up in Phoenix. 
Several month later he has arrived.

He does not answer to George or Hoover, my choices. Fergus or Finley, Adam's choices.

i thehamish is pickin' thething, it', mandables'  or mandables' ofdoom

The saga begins
cheers,  a very nawed on parsnip

Monsoons clouds

The monsoons have come.
Cooling us off to only 100 to 103 this week
Much nicer, so happy.

 Monday sunset glowing over the Burro fire, looking east.

 Sunset looking west.




 Looking east again. Love the way the sunset colors bounce off any of the clouds.
Just like liquid gold in the sky.
I like my phone camera easy for me to hold, but the colors are not as fabulous as 
you can see in person.

I was cleaning up and tossing toys into thehamish's basket so I could dust the floor.
This basket was first Kirby's, then Watson's and now thehamish's.

If you look at the front you can see where puppy Watson chewed on it.



thehamish needed to nap there no matter what.


Here is your mid week pretty

Monsoons, Winds, Rain, Lighting and Fire

Monsoon started finally.

 Saturday evening small storm looking west.

 Sunday morning.

 Storm clouds heading east and south,

 Getting close to the Burro Fire.

 Rain in the area of the Burro Fire.The cooler air plus rain helped.
There is alway a but... there were lots of lighting strikes.
Three new fires started in this area because of lighting strikes.
They were quickly put out by the firefighters who were fighting the Burro Fire.
Gosh another but... the air smelled so good. Not dry, hot and dusty but sweet smelling
desert sage, wet earth and ozone from the lighting.
 Sunday night sunset,

 reflected in my window.
Here we are today,
 Gosh these 100+ temps are so much better.

 It is so much cooler today, down from 118 +

 The morning sky. Lovely !
Cloud cover and cooler temps. We so need it.

 I can tell when thehamish is really not feeling well.
He will cuddled up to me. Sad very sad but heartbreaking sweet at the same time.

 Here is your pretty to start the week
I am making all of thehamish food now.
Mushy rice and chicken + other stuff.
He loves it !
Can you tell by his sweet little face.
Love this gud dug !

cheers,  parsnip
