You would think I would learn. After three dogs and a set of twins, quiet does not always equal calm. I am not sure if it is my coffee that stirs things up, or the fact that I am working and possibly distractible. But nonetheless…
Looks like a tarp right? A tarp with some water. You know what is coming, right?
That flying blur of fur would be Miss Stella. Racing. Fast crazy circles around the deck, onto the porch, and back through the tarp. In water. Repeatedly.
A brief pause in the spontaneous chaos paired with the look that says, “What? What!”
Slower speed? Yes. Finished? Not quite.
A few rounds of “soccer~volleyball” through the water puddle tarp before calling it quits for the morning.
Just one last quick circle and I’ll drop it. I promise.
What? What! I just wanted to have a little fun before you take me to the vet tomorrow. I will not be able to run like this for a little while. This time tomorrow I will be knocked out cold under the knife. I should be able to have a tad bit of fun, right?
All done now. Maybe you should ask the coffee shop for decaf ice next time.
You know you have a best bud when they are willing to drop everything and go for a coffee run to a local coffee shop. Of course we had to bring Duckie and another new favorite toy, The Tire.
All windows are down and we are ready to head into town for some good coffee.
Miss Stella was very helpful and ordered for all of us.
We have been going to this same coffee shop for years and it usually is the same people in the window waiting on us. It is actually kind of sad in that they know our orders. I use to take Sadie Lou on rides into town to get coffee, but she has gotten to the point where she pretty much wants to head to the vet and that is about it. Too long of a drive and she will attempt to sit in my lap while I drive. Not a good idea.
Seeing as we are “regulars,” for the workers it was pretty much small talk, pour the coffee, and hand through the window. However, Miss Stella was excited to see new people and smell the coffee (cannot blame her there!) so she let out a pretty loud “Woof!” Her bark is already fairly deep, and when you look at her, she looks like a full-grown dog and not a 19 week old pup. The reactions were priceless! They were sweet and gave her a cup full of ice as it was a hot afternoon as well as a doggie treat. Stella is use to her own treats at home and let her biscuit drop to the floorboard. I am not quite sure what she was thinking as she stared at it but I do know that it stayed there until we got home.
Miss Stella ate a few pieces of her ice on the way home but could not have the entire cup until we got back to the house. She was curious about this new way to have ice as she usually has it in a butter bowl with a lid. Another ‘toy’ she loves.
This new dish did not seem to bother nor slow her down.
Now I need to get her to learn how to wipe up her mess…such a Goof Newf.
