Checking out the yard with Royals is always interesting and fun, but it really doesn't give a puppy the kind of exercise needed to burn off excess energy. Lady May and Princess MollyDawg will only tolerate "the youngsters" a short while. Then it's back indoors for a rest time for them. That really doesn't cut it for a 3 month old puppy and Zola made no bones about telling us so. I want more play now!
|Where ever Princess MollyDawg walked, Zola was right by her side.|
Fortunately for Zola, River's mom called to ask if 1 1/2 yr old River could come for a few days, Yay! Zola is a happy and contented little girl, who really knows how to entertain herself just fine. BUT let's face it, another high energy furry on premise is great for a puppy!
They played for hours with each other. I really didnt want to have to start my indoor chores. Those are usually dictated by where everyone naps. There's comfy mats scattered throughout the house for whoever decides to use them. I can go about my chores once I know everyone has found their spot and is resting calmly. I periodically peek around the house at the occupied mats to check that all is well. As usual with new comers, and double especially with puppies, they always seem to find the best spot in the house, "My Chair!"
|Sorry puppy, no dogs are allowed on the furniture. |
"Aww but why? Aren't I cute enough?"
|River's energy lasted far longer than Zola's so she just amused herself while Zola napped.|
We've been getting things around the yard ready for winter. We're getting a fair share of rain and soon it will be snow. I've taken the gazebo cover off and we've put the boat into storage. A few more hedges need pruning and I've taken down the flower baskets. Needless to say, I've been busy around the yard. My eyes are not always glued to the dogs. I still need to know exactly who's where and with who at all times. Zola's colouring challenged me. I had to keep a close eye on her, she is so little. I sure got me exercise that weekend. She was only here over night. I hope she had fun and will visit us again.
When Zola went home Miss Mylu came to visit us. This was a first meeting for her and River. I learned very fast, that's a recipe for "Keeping eyes glued." They absolutely LOVED each other.
|Hey River? Wanna ask if we can go outside 'n play?|
I can see you already miss your new buddy.
