Scavenging Aussies

For anyone who owns an Aussie, they must know how much they LOVE food.  What always have baffled me about my Aussies, or any other dog for that matter, is how they can turn up their noses at perfectly good food offering but not even think twice about hitting the garbage .... proof is the interest in the Compost, or any other undesirables that they might scavenge while out for a walk along the streets.

Yes I am certain if our Buddy boy was able to get himself in that compost he would have been chowing down on Watermelon rinds, Banana and Potato Peelings.  Really though, what do we know?  the nutrition is in the skins is it not?

Walking The Dog

We had visitors today.  The last day all the "Extraordinary 8" litter were all together, as Dakota is leaving tomorrow for Thunder Bay, the Black Tri is heading out Thursday morning, with Ruby and Buddy heading out Friday.  The remainder will be leaving Saturday and Sunday.

Rusty came back to visit with his Forever Family, Jenn, Shea-lyn and Papa.  When he had enough Rusty got underneath the chaise lounge chair to hide his head.

Sisters Blu and Ruby cooling off in the Hostas.

Ace decided he was going to take Rusty for a walk.  He was pretty insistent with Rusty finally relenting in the end.

It was great having visitors, as I had lots of help giving the pups their last dose of worm medicine.

The next five days will be busy with the comings and goings of new Forever Homes and their puppies.  Stay tuned for departure updates ....
