Coming home from work today, the sky had become overcast and grey, for the past forty-five minutes I have listened to the rumble of thunder in the distance. The weather guys say we have a severe thunderstorm coming at us, which means we have a cool front approaching........which means, cooler weather this weekend!
I hear my sweaters calling me. Haha!
I groomed Blackie Bear, and Taylor before I left for work today........not an easy task. Both weigh around 100 pounds each, Taylor is short haired, bulldog mix, but Blackie Bear is chow/lab mix(LOTS of hair) They love to be groomed, you can hear their grunts of joy and delight every time they are brushed and cut. Our dog Charlie who passed over the rainbow a few months ago, loved to be groomed too. Charlie liked it so much, that when you stopped, he would take his paw and pet your hand trying to get you to continue. I really miss Charlie.
With the rumbles of thunder, the dogs are getting into their storm mode......Astro is under Rick's desk,
Buddy and Blackie and Taylor have surrounded my chair here at my desk, and Collie( the neighbor's dog who will not go home) is trying to find his spot. Not sure if I had told you all about Collie.......he is the most beautiful Collie you have ever seen. Yes, he looks just like Lassie! We have not named him, we are in a strange situation here.......he belongs to a neighbor about a quarter mile away. He showed up several months ago, it took us quite a while to find his owner. She came and got him......several times.....and he just keeps coming back. He will not go home. We have asked her about keeping him, but no response. What to do, what to do? Couldn't let him go without flea and heartworm meds, so we have given him those.
All our dogs are neutered, hoping she makes a decision soon, because if he stays with us.....snip, snip! In the mean time, he gets groomed tomorrow.
The storm is getting closer, I just stepped outside and you can smell the rain. I love that smell! and the way the air feels just before the storm.......damp and warm.
I can hear Buddy snore( he was my mom's little dog), Astro is getting restless under the desk(another lab mix)
and Collie found his place....blocking the door to the office. Taylor and Blackie are snoring too, I think their fear of the storm was way over rated.
I think my way of greeting the storm is the best.......a cup of hot tea (red zinger tonight) and a good read.....
and then a warm cozy bed.
Good night Sweet dreams
