Thursday tails

Above, Leia and I are taking a morning walk on the edge of the pool.   We had a wet late afternoon and evening on Wednesday, up to 2 inches of rain in an hour.    The thunder and lightning was keeping some of us awake during our evening nap, but just barely so.     Star is staying with us, she is supposed to have bad thunder phobia.   She was OK, she did try and hide, but then she would see us ignoring thunder and she would calm a little.   It helped that she had some calming pills.    Star found the crate and went inside where it was dark and quiet, that seemed to make everything OK.    She came out when the skies had cleared and she saw us outside playing.   Below, Star is waiting for diner to be served. 

Leia has several people asking about her, but she has not decided on a home yet.   She wants an active household.    This place is full of older dogs and she tries constantly to get a game going, but we just go lie down and nap.   She would love a family that hikes mountain trails, or jogs regularly.   She has to go run in huge circles in the back yard several times a day to keep her pent up energy from getting her in trouble.    Below, Leia is resting between runs. 
Sage is enjoying his new home.   Lots of hands to pet him, lots of play time.    He is being spoiled rotten.   He says that as soon as Mary is back from her trip, that his family wants to fill out the papers and make him a permanent member of the family.    He hopes he will get a little cake and ice cream for his Adoption day party. 

Dad has a new phone, with a fold out keyboard.   He says he needs new tiny fingers to type on the tiny keys.   He says there is one very good thing about texting instead of calling people.    When he is mad at someone he can write a very pleasant and nice message, using only his middle finger, and they never know.

  1. Man, Star is FLUFFY!

    I'm so happy that dogs are finding homes and that dogs are being very particular about those homes. We must make sure all the homes are perfect!

  2. Hi Y'all,

    Looks like Sage is set and happy and Leia soon will be in her forever home.

    As for that phone, Mogley, you have nice slender nails on your paws...:) Course now the paw challenged have no excuse for not helping you post...they'll have the phone everywhere.:)

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  3. Mogley, Keep up the good work of finding homes for those Goldens, their simply is no price tag on the good that you do.
    Tell your Dad that our Dad also has problems with the tiny key boards, he said his chubby hands are just not made for that.

  4. Heehee. Mom is cracking up at your Dad's opinions on texting! We're glad Sage is getting supremely spoiled - he deserves it! And we can see what you mean about how Star takes a day and a half to dry out after going swimming - that's a lot of furs!

  5. You just have one good news after an other, Mogley. We had a thunderstorm and some rain too. Even though we hate the thunder, and Lady is really frightened, we were glad because we are in a drought.

    Mommie was surprised to hear your Dad can type with his middle finger. She always thought that finder was only for the Miami salute when you drive down there.

  6. Qannik understands Star. When thunder starts, he paces a little, but then sees the rest of The Herd just ignoring mother nature. Love the Power of the Pack.
