Patience Payoff



This is what greeted me when we arrived on the island....


My cousin, Shelby was head over heels 
HAPPY
now that she had someone to fetch with....


Shelby had gone to Nova Scotia 
for a few days,
 so when I arrived on PEI
I had to practice 
~~~patience~~~
Do you know what that's like?!


I practiced on this beach....


and this beach


near these windbreaks


and in the back seat of the car
as we passed this Belgian.


I even entertained Daddy Jim 
and Auntie Marilyn...
I guess they were amused.


As you can see Shelby and I really know
how to have a good time.
Give us a lawn and a ball
and doggy camaraderie
is reinforced.  


and you know what....?
I didn't forget how to play our summer game
even if a couple toys got mangled.

Thanks Shelby
You Prairie Girls
are the best!

  13. The picture of you running into the ocean is awesome! Sophie, of all the pictures I see of you.. it's when you are running on the beach that you look most happy. Or is that my imagination just thinking that?
