Musical blankets

The dogs mainly stay in the covered area by the kitchen door.  There they can be sheltered from the sun and inclement weather except  if the rain comes with gusty winds out of the north or east as was the case a couple of days ago.

I have two cuchas for them and a little area with pillows and a blanket for Tammie.  All the bedding was soaked and stunk to high heaven.  Our clothesline is not strong enough to resist the weight of it all so a light bulb went off in my head.

I decided to dry them on top of the weeds and suffocate them with the help of the dogs who are now playing musical blankets.

I will try anything to keep from doing yard work :-(

Musical "Cuchas"

In the mornings when I go feed the dogs, I get a kick out of seeing who is sleeping in what cucha (Spanish term for a bed).

Up until now, Tammie had not shown an interest in sleeping in one but that has since changed. She saw Oscar get up from his and she quickly decided to try it out and fell asleep. He is a docile dog, so he let her as he took his place in the grass (weeds).

We have made a couple of trips to San Antonio this month so we have had no choice but to eat at fast food establishments.  Mother can never finish a complete meal so we bring the left-overs to the dogs. I, on the other hand, have no problem eating my portion but the doctor has potatoes in particular french fries banned from my diet.

We brought back so many french fries but I finally ran out of them today.  I am sure they will miss them, in particular, Pedrito.  That dog is getting fat though I have cut down on his portions.  I figured now that he is no longer tied up, he would take to the streets and loose weight but that has not happened at least not during the day.

Last night before turning in, I looked in on them as they sleep in the cover area by the kitchen door...they were nowhere to be found.  Came back an hour later and they were still missing in action...geeze some watch dogs I have!
