Crazy on the Outside

The puppies have embraced the Great Outdoors with typical puppy abandon. Today the sun peeked in and out of the clouds and made for some nice photos on the deck. They are a bit small yet to tackle stairs but rest assured in the coming days they will be ready to go up and down them with all the caution of a 7 week old puppy. For the next couple of days I'm just going to let you bask in the glow of some truly darling puppies who think the world is not enough.

Rue out for a stroll. She owns this deck and soon will own a lovely home in Dartmouth (with a pool and everything - as IF a Ridgeback would be caught in a pool - basking next to it yes, swimming ... no.)

Emma found some old sticks on the deck and for the next hour they were the toy of the century. Stop spending tonnes of money on dog toys your puppy will ruin and get her a stick, an old cardboard box and a pair of shoes you no longer want.

Raylan was working on his sunbathing. If you notice in later years that your Ridgeback is a particular expert as a sun worshiper it's because they start practicing early.

Whadjasay? Sun worship? Rue says "I'm in!" It's not hard to picture this little muffin on her pool deck ... no wait, her pool-side lounger (you think I'm kidding?).

Zeke has bigger things to worry about than the sun right now. Cora was giving him a raspberry and he wasn't sure he liked it. Zeke will get to see both Raylan and Rue in the coming months, and hopefully years, since they will all live within a few miles of each other.

And this is what Emma thinks of that. She doesn't think those three living near each other is such a big deal when she'll get to see her sister Kota all the time in Calgary. They even get to fly there together.

Where am I going? Peggy is demonstrating what it looks like to chew on a couch so her home in New Brunswick can be prepared for it. She thought the couch was tasty since it's been in the rain for the last few days. Soon enough she'll be chewing on someone else's sofa while this sofa will be gracing the county dump.
