By 6:30pm the hot temps had broken with storms south of us by a 100 miles. It was finally nice enough to sit on the patio and enjoy the end of the day. The hounds loved but the dog would not move. Walter did not join us outside for all the action that took place. All photos tonight of Henry and Watson enjoying 79°.
I know Watson needs his nails cut. Luckily the cuticle is way back in the nail. I just need to "coral" him long enough to do it. It is hard to do although he was trained at 8 weeks old to get his nails trimmed. I have never cut one too short to cause any pain. He just decided one day .. no more, don't try cutting them.
A great day here in "the tropics" of Southern Indiana.
The admirer came to me and signed that Watson has grown into his BIG ears. LOL. He still thinks he wants a little Henry and when I reviewed the photos of "little Henry" I assured him the puppy will get big and heavy and then the puppy would be too big and heavy to jump up on his bed. Of course, the admirer had a solution for that projected problem. He showed me he built a RAMP from the floor to his bed and the ramp is built out of 2 suitcases and prompted up on pillows, he actually as the "ramp" built perfectly just with materials that are too weak to hold a hound. But, I am very proud of his ability and mindset to show me if he had a "little Henry" that the hound would be able to get onto the bed and sleep next to him.ReplyDelete
Yes, if hounds would only stay in their puppy size the whole time ... Henry still thinks he can get up on my shoulder and sleep like he did when he was a puppy.Delete
Too bad Walter chose to miss out on the fun going on in your backyard with Henry and Watson. Love the photo of the face-off on the deck with Henry and Watson. Hoping that the cooler weather stays around for a while for you. We have been in the high 80's with humidity - some thunder and lightning shows - as they say, it's that time of year.ReplyDelete
It will be a welcomed change the next 5-7 days with high temps in the 80s and then dropping into the 70s for highs after that.Delete
