Bright and Lazy Days

It is with great pleasure that I announce that MY INTERNET IS FIXED! The technician wasn't able to fix it when he came yesterday, because the problem wasn't in my house, but apparently Verizon got their act together and repaired it. Let's cross our fingers it stays this way. I'll be around to visit all of my favorite blogs tonight and tomorrow - I owe all of you a whole lot of comments!

Just briefly, I'll mention that Marge did very well for the hour-plus that the technician was here. I initially kept her in the backyard in her crate, with a cup of kibble in her brand-new Premier Kibble Nibble, but she started to get antsy after emptying it out and even tried to break through the zipper... so, I decided to let her inside. The tech really didn't bother with her, I fed her lots of cookies and all was well. Big step for Marge!

I had a busy day today and had to go run a couple of errands. I was surprised that when I looked outside to see what Marge was doing during her last pottybreak before my departure, I found this:

She had found a little patch of January sunlight and took a snooze. She does this often in the warm months, but seldom gets the chance to do so during the winter because the sun just isn't strong enough. So, it was a nice treat!

I felt bad to call her in right away (she isn't allowed outside unsupervised), so I let her hang out for a bit.

Showing off her bald belly.. little hooch!

Though I like the flexibility to go wherever we please during the winter (versus the summer, filled with lots of scary stuff), I'd be lying if I said I didn't appreciate the sunshine today.

(We've got something pretty exciting coming up over the weekend in terms of agility - a chance to practice at an all-new location! We'll see how it goes and I'll report back here once it's all over.)

We're big fans of sunshine here, too! I envy you your nap!

BRUTUS January 14, 2010 at 10:33 PM  

Looks like you got a hiatus from winter there!! Can't believe that all that snow you had a few weeks ago is gone - I'd think it would still be a soggy mess! Good luck with the new place this weekend!!

We have all the yard guys and whatnot trained to ignore me when they come to the estate. That way I can supervise them on my own schedule. It keeps me from feeling like I have to be fierce. Good job.

Yea for working internet!!!! What a relief!

Yea for Marge dealing with the Verizon guy. That is a big deal!

Guess Marge needed some vitamin D. She's smart for soaking it up while she could. Winter grey will be back in a heartbeat, I'm sure.

Good luck this weekend.

Jules January 15, 2010 at 8:13 AM  

Yay, Marge!

A lady needs a little beauty sleep now and then and if she can get her sunbathing in at the same time she is doubly blessed. Marge, it worked - you are gorgeous!

Frankie Furter and Ernie January 15, 2010 at 9:21 AM  

Hey Marge, nice sunbathing there. Glad that you got to come in when the internet guy was there. Good practice.
Really glad to have you back!!

I love a dog comfortable enough to show her belly, secure enough to demand a belly rub...

Bah I'm so jealous! While it was warmer here today we're still up to our ears in snow. Glad you got your internet fixed, I always love seeing your posts pop up in my feed. Can't wait to here more about agility!
