Square Dog Friday, boo boo day. . .

This is the best day of the week if you are a Little Black Square Dog.
Square Dog Friday.
We all know the drill so let's woof it.
thehamish is very ill.
Called the doctor and we can not get in till the 6th.
Like any Mum, I will take care of him and if he gets worst I will take him to hospital
that he has had several operations at already.  They have his very thick file.
They also remember him because Scotties are very rare in Tucson.

Here is a sweet photo of him from a few days ago.
awwwwww my sweet baboo.

I was playing with some apps and this one is so much fun.

Thursday was the "official" end of the monsoon season.
But Thursday night an evening storm was brewing,
I was waiting for the tornado to appear !

Goodness !

As always here is your pretty for the weekend.

We were at a Birthday Dinner Party 
and this is a photo Son took later in the evening.

I like the way the street looks smaller in this photo but I am not sure about the sign.

I cropped out the sign but I do not like how big the buildings became.
I like them smaller, for me the building are competing with the sky.

Son still took a wonderful photo.

Monday stuff with gud dug and cats

Weekend stuff around Tucson.

 We planted winter grass.
Somehow I lost the before photo of grass cut down to the roots, raked and rather brown
and then covered in seed and fertilizer.

 But zap it just came up fast. We have to wait a fer weeks for the grass to get stronger
for a cut and trim.

 I am working in the studio a lot thehamish has gotten a few new
toys to help keep him busy. He has destroyed the Hedgehog squeaky already.
 So I will wash Hedgehog put a new squeaky in and put it away
to bring out another day.

 steely concentration




 squeaky !


As always  here is your pretty for the start of the week.

Tell me how is that comfortable ? Just looking at him gives me a headache.

thehamish is playing pool ball.
He kicks the ball into the pool and then waits for the ball to come back to the edge so he can 
take it out. He loves playing this game.  He is such a funny little dog with a broken tail.

Wednesday in Imperialistic Cat Land.

Just another day on the range with gud dud herding cats and javelinas. 

I have written before that Son who lives with me is a volunteer at the Humane Society.
He loves cats and works with them getting them ready for adoption.
He has fallen in love with several of the cats but after all this time has opened
his heart to two overlooked bonded 11 year old black cats.
The adoption was finalized just before the HSSA Newsletter came out for Fall.
We have stars living with us now.
Merida is on the left and Oliver on the right.


As always just because I can here is your pretty for the middle of the week.

Gud dug imperialistic cats and some other stuff

Well here it is another Monday following an non-action packed weekend of
gud dugs, imperialistic cats and some other stuff.

Remember the new window that replaced Watson's smaller window ?
thehamish is using it now.
I heard thehamish gurrrrrrin' very low and see him looking out the window.

When I look out my window, above his, there was a herd of Javelinas walking
through the citrus grove.
Since we have had so much monsoon rain this summer they are fat and happy so just
stopped long enough for a quick drink and kept on moseyin'

Look at the top right and you will see a javelina drinking at one of the ponds.

A bum, two legs and a part of a head.

yesh bord bord bordin' i thehamish is waitin' for dinner
so hard hard hard for a gud dug like i thehamish

little buggie botherin' i thehamish

not tastin' gud
defently' no chkikin'

le sigh

i thehamish is hungry need fud

Son took this great photo of Oliver sitting in the screens, as cats will do.
Yes, he has named kitty boy Oliver Winston. Kitty Girl stays Merida.
Even though Winston was my first pick and then we came up with Oliver,
which is an easier name and sounds happy. 
Plus like Frances said it has three syllables and I also like that sound.


Of course just because I can here is your pretty to start the week.

 One of my entries to John's Flower and Veg Show, that didn't win.
It is the angryparsnip eating the dreaded carrot.
Like everyone who picks carrots instead of the tastier parsnip !
Naughty !
