Will we do something fun soon?
Fine, I’ll strike off on my own. How do I get this thing off?
I’ve been in places where we (I am two people, Myself and Susan. Just so you know) have had no internet connection while away from home and been in places where we have full internet connection (at times, anyway) while away from home.
I don’t recall ever being in a place where we had half a connection. Continue reading “The Strangeness of Being Half-connected to the Internet”
Sometimes you just need to roll around in the warm, wet grass.
It was a fun outing weekend with the boy. We started off by meeting a friend at an SPCA event where Chip got to meet a toy Schnauzer.
Of course, Susan got kisses from the boy. Chip didn’t even seem jealous.
Afterwards we motored off to the Fiat dealership to drive and eventually buy a new 500 for Susan. Chip was really good the whole type, off leash and staying close.
Sunday found us at the Huffines art festival where Chip got to talk to a few more dogs, including another Schnauzer.
Yet another ralk with Chip, early in the morning.
I didn’t have my camera with me which guaranteed I’d see something interesting.
A cloud that looked like a duck. By the time we got back home and I grabbed the camera it wasn’t as strongly duck shaped but here it is anyway.
That evening we took just a walk – too bloody hot for anything else.
After completing a circuit around the pond we headed off across the field where I stopped and attempted to take a picture of my favorite puppy.
Little did I know he’d pick that moment do do his business.
“Really? You’re going to take a picture of me now?”
Two years ago Chip the Miniature Schnauzer became part of our pack. Here are a few things I absolutely love about this remarkable dog, in no particular order. These behaviors are part of his nature; we have not taught him any of this.
Chip spent his first three years of life in a dreadful puppy mill before it was turned in to the authorities, the dogs seized, and this boy sent to the Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of North Texas. They cured him of a severe case of heartworms plus other parasites and injuries. Now Chip is strong and healthy, runs and walks with his humans, even 3 mile walks, which keeps him in fine form at 15½ pounds. If you have room in your home and time to devote to a fabulous family member, consider adopting a Mini Schnauzer from MSRNT. They’re great!
