A Golden Retriever's Next Best Friend

It goes without saying that my very best friend is my Mom.

And now I'd like to introduce my next best friend: the Hawaiian Breeze oscillating fan that has come this day to reside on my side of the bed.

This 40" gal works in a variety of modes, moods, behaviors and speeds, is quiet as a mouth... and has a clicker that will allow Mom to operate it from HER side of the bed.

'She' was presented to me as a gift, intended to balance the disparity of temperatures between Mom's side of the bed and mine. I took a fabulous nap in her company, but the jury is still out as to whether I continue to prefer Mom's side of the bed.

I love an extended holiday!

I'm preparing for my "Anti-Monsoons" dance!

Ask Miss C

Duchess from Durham, North Carolina writes...

You are always talking about rain, rain, rain
and your flooded backyard.
Where exactly do you live?

Miss C replies:

I live 'On Golden Pond'!

4th of July!

Happy Independence Day to the USA!

Freedom is a beautiful thing.

And I liken our country's Independence Day... to my own.
My independence was won on April 17, 2003.
On that day, I claimed full rights to my back yard
and no longer had to poop on a string!

Freedom only means freedom from worry...
if your borders are secured.
And mine are.
I have good strong fences,
a perimeter that I patrol with regularity,
and a gate that's monitored closely by Mom.

Now that the rain has finally stopped (for today)...
Bring on the fireworks!

A Golden Retriever's Thoughts: My Weekend

  1. Excellent Friday afternoon photos... don't you think? (I think I might have heard the words... 'pretty' and 'precious' to describe them!).
  2. Gave Auntie Dav a card and some pritty pitchers for her birfday.
  3. Mom came home yesterday afternoon with chinese food and cookies... but she smelled like 'Cheddar'!
  4. Mom told me that 'Cheddar' is large, and I am small.
  5. Mom stayed a little too busy for my likin'. And she came home last night complainin' about those other peoples she calls 'Comets'. I think from the sound of it, they should be called the "No No Bad Girls".
  6. Entirely too much rain for good quality time outdoors.
  7. Over and out! I heard Mom ordered a pizza and there's a "ding" at the door!
