Holy Toledo & Owen!



 Pardon my tongue!
Toledo ~~~ mocha chocolate, lamby wannabe,
made me do it,
while Owen teases Jim
as he comes in from
capturing some sunset pictures.


Toledo likes to spin and spin
thus the name Holy Toledo...


and so does Owen.
I think they encourage each other.



Myself
 I need a break
so a gaze out the window...


letting me see this view
from high on the hill...


in front of the house
I can see this view
which will lead us down to the shore
if you follow the fence...


so since Toledo and I are out here
checking out anything that moves...



 I figure a game of 
"SuperPalePurpleChaseMeBall"
would help out matters considerably....


which ends up in a quick exit
(see IT in the bushes
right of center!)


There,
 on the far right now
a pheasant
actually the male and female
had to vamoose
since we were taking over the field!


Chasing pheasants
only is topped
by a romp around and around the field.


and a discussion of all things doggy!



Owen and I got along really well...


I keep looking at him thinking 
how could a doggy grow so quickly.
He's taller than me now.


But that's OK with me.
He's a gentle mini-giant
full of goodness and kindness.
He truly loves everyone.

    1. This is my doggy daycare, Ann!

      It's called Country Critter Sitters high on a hill overlooking the eastern North Atlantic on a fine spring evening in April.

      I had a grand time as you can see!

  3. What gorgeous photos and what an amazing place! You live in such a beautiful area. I bet you'll never finish exploring; there's always so much to see and do. And photograph! It is funny the way you're spinning. You look like a pinwheel in the wind! :)

    1. The spinning photos just happened, no thought processes involved. It does give me ideas though. Maybe I could make other things spin. Something to ponder.

      This view is spectacular any time of year.

      Glad you enjoyed it!

  4. Lucky you, Sophie! What a beautiful field to romp in with your friends! And the sky ~ such lovely lambent colors. You sure know how to have a good time. I'm trying to talk Terry into a game of Scrabble. I probably shouldn't have asked him because his Rockies are winning at baseball. Have a good week.

    1. Mary does have a beautiful view and I sit in a chair, or on the deck, or on the lawn and just soak it all up whenever we can visit. The sky is long and open, reminds me of a Prairie sky ~~~ Huge Sky Country!

    1. Mr Orangie would have disappeared for good with all those doggies diving at him ~~~ so Sophie decided to leave him in the car, besides finding SuperPalePurpleChaseMeBall was the best 'find' ever ~~~~ she told me she would love to have one of these!

      Surprise!

      Trip to Three Dog Bakery to find one coming up!

  16. My boy Scout loves to spin. Sometimes he goes after his tail, but when I have his supper, he stands up and spins on just two feet. Sophie, I like you a lot.

    Love,
