The Tail of Two Dogs...

I briefly mentioned Curly Sue in an earlier post (see it here).  I have been stopping by her house (to give her a potty break) on my way home from work since 2006 (I think).  Now that I am retired, I take a break from whatever I am doing and drive about 5 minutes to her house and spend a bit of time with her and make sure that she potties.  She was about 1 year old when she was rescued from a puppy mill...where CS spent the majority of her days in a crate with her brother.  Needless to say, she was fearful of almost everything.  Her owner, Sheri, has done an outstanding job of exposing her to various situations...and I would say that CS is fairly normal at this time.  Sure, there are still some incidents that make her run and hide, but for the most part, she has learned how to handle the situations she encounters.   

For instance, my little iPhone kinda freaked her out for a bit...stopped her dead in her tracks, it did.  But, she got over it. 

We have always wondered why she was named Curly Sue.  Being a Beagle and all, she has not one curly hair on her.  

I am in charge of brushing her teeth and trimming her nails...lucky girl.  ~grin~  She doesn't really like having her nails trimmed (what dog does?), but she behaves during the few minutes it takes.

 Today, she and I decided that a selfie was way overdue!  So, here you are...


Then, there is Tag...aka brown dog, Tag E Butt, chocolate puppy.  As you probably know, he does love his warthog.  When he received a new toy - Nanny Hoot Owl - he sort of ignored his warthog.  Of course, there was the question of whether or not Nanny Hoot Owl would become his new favorite.  Well, I want to set your minds at ease...after several days of hardly looking at his warthog, he was back to playing with it today.  Whew.  ~grin~

In this photo, he is making the choice between the two.

And, here he is 'woofing' quietly at his warthog.  He had a jolly time playing with the warthog, throwing him around and pouncing on him.  I feel safe in saying that he will remain faithful and true to his warthog.

The end.  (Now, if I was really clever, I'd have a photo of someone's back end to insert here.)


I am very excited...Kaylynn is coming for an overnight tomorrow!  I haven't seen her since before Christmas, for pete's sake.  We have FaceTimed a few times, which is really fun to be able to do with her now.  

I hope you all have a great weekend!
