Finally Friday and Ladies Man
Made it through another grueling week. What has made this one so tough was that the air conditioner has been on the fritz and we have to wait until Saturday for the repair man. Guess he is kept pretty busy this time of year! Luckily we have had some intervals of rain this week which had kept the temps down but made it uncomfortably humid.
Last night, Ozzie was entertaining some of his neighborhood friends from our front porch. First Katie the Terrier came by with her fur parents Tom and Patty. We were chatting when Bailey the Boxer came walking by with her fur mom Heather. It seems Katie gets very upset when Bailey comes around. Could it be she is jealous? Katie goes into full defense mode, growling and literally shaking. Maybe she is telling Bailey to" back off he's mine!". Bailey appears to pay no mind to the situation and approaches with her usual exuberance. I wonder what Ozzie is thinking at that moment? Probably knowing Oz he is saying "Girls, girls don't fight over me, as you can see there is plenty of me to go around!"
On to the weekend. Once our AC is fixed I plan on making a tasty baked treat for Ozzie. They are Paw-mesan tail twisters. I found it in this great little cook book for dogs called Throw Me A Bone. In matter of fact they seem so tasty you may want to sneak one or two for yourself.
Have a wonderful weekend all!
