Mom's been traveling and working hard, and trying to make sense of some sad things that have happened -- but that's no excuse for neglecting what really matters -- keeping up with all of our friends. So we apologize and hope you all remember us. We did see that our fellow Floridians, the Key West Collies, just celebrated their second blogaversary -- and we joined the DWB just a few days after them, on June 20th, 2007. So maybe, if she who controls our lives remembers -- we'll be back to celebrate.
In the meantime, it's been raining and raining here -- which is actually a very good thing because Lake Okeechobee -- the big hole in the map when you look down at an aerial -- which is critical to our water supply -- was getting pretty low. And now, after all the rains, it's just a few feet away from normal. Rain on a spring afternoon often brings rainbows -- and we saw this one a few days ago.We also had some excitement one evening when we discovered a lost turtle on the edge of the golf course. Perhap you remember that we had sniffed out a turtle a few weeks ago, but when we went back to help move him back to the lake, he had disappeared. We don't know if this was the same one -- but Dogdad took us home and then went back and carried him over to the lake so he wouldn't get hurt by any of the cars that speed along the roadways. And then, OK, and then -- there is us. We have been freshly "plucked," once again revealing wirey ears and polka dot bodies. We each lost about two pounds of fur in the process and Mom discovered that we weren't the roly poly porky dogs she thought.
Last night we were watching the Cardinals get beaten by Cleveland (we know someone -- not us -- is happy about that). I was on the couch with the folks -- but we didn't know where Just Harry was. And then we spied a little black nose.
Yep, that's my brother. If the name doofus wasn't already taken, we might apply it to His Silliness.
And that's all for now.
