|What a crew- Hickory Dock and Justus on couch; Howie aka Dodger on dog bed|
Peanut is pea-nuttier! She had a bath Sunday - I need to bathe her two to three times a week as she has yeast infection all over her body. It's amazing how an arthritic old dog who could not get in the tub on her own was somehow able to get out quickly despite being wet and slippery. HA. She may not have been thrilled with the bath but her actions the rest of the day belied any discontent - she was out and about with the pack, scratched at the aluminum side door to come back in and left her treasured orthopedic bed for my comforter. When I left for evening church, the Peanut tried to come out the front door with me. Alrighty then - we are feeling better and better!

Hickory Dock got his nails trimmed again on Sunday, too. I always use a muzzle and the trimmer (I don't do his nails) was very good with him; she chatted him up and when he got just a titch balky she stopped and petted him some more before finishing. He ate half a cookie I brought for him. We then went on almost a mile walk, partially on the formal bike trail and partially on a dirt trail through the woods. Dock's tail wagged, he nodded to passersby; one woman said he looked so sweet, wanting to know what kind of dog he was as she petted him and he glowed. Back to the store where he was massaged almost into sleep by Julia "I love big old hounds." Right back at ya.

Snoopy, hang on - we're ready for Monday Mischief!
