I've gone to the dogs

The dogs looked so cute this morning when I arrived to take them for their walk- they had coats on today. Ya know it's cool here in Fla.

I took my friends' dogs out today and while walking near the pond out back saw a baby alligator sunning itself on the far bank! I was so glad it was on the other bank despite it only being 3 foot long. I turned my back to tend to the dogs and lo and behold it disappeared! Where did it go!? I wasn't staying around trying to find out. One of the dogs is really small and it could have been food for that gator! That dog is also blind and walks real slow-I had to keep calling it! I don't know if I will ever take the dogs out back again! I think I don't like alligators! plus where there is a small gator there must be a momma or poppa gator!

My dog has been a bit of a pest lately- he has taken to getting into the trash! Any good ideas on how to stop that behavior!? Plus wherever I want to sit he is occupying-now I can see sitting elsewhere for an elder, but a dog! He glares at me when I disturb him! He also has taken to sitting on me. Maybe he is cold I don't know, but wherever I sit he plops himself on me! This eve I was trying to work on that Christmas project and he just got in the middle of it and plopped himself on my lap and wouldn't let me work on it!

His birthday is this week- he will be three- Dau#1 wants to have a birthday party for him! And invite my friends dogs! She and my friend think dogs are people! We even had to discuss what he was getting for his birthday. Don't get me wrong I love the pooch, but he is a DOG!

I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.
Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

That must be different to see alligators on a walk. I love the quote at the end of this.

I love seeing alligators out, but I imagine even a 3-foot one would be able to do you some damage. And could have a small dog as lunch.

sorry. no pity from me, here. the dog TOTALLY deserves a birthday party!

thank goodness you were able to avoid the gator! now that you live in Florida, you've certainly learned about the zig-zag run, right?
