But all the other dogs get to do that!

Thursday is trash day in our neighborhood. Every Thursday Finn and I have this discussion on our walks. He wants to sniff and pee on the trash cans, and I won't let him.

'Why can't I do that?'

'Because trashcans have to be picked up by their owners and the trash guys, and dog pee on them is disgusting. Polite neighbors do not allow that.'

'But all the OTHER dogs get to pee on the trash cans!'

'I don't care, you are not. If all the other dogs jumped off a cliff, would you jump off too?'

'But...it smells so interesting!'

'No!'

Then we walk to the next yard and have the discussion all over again.

It's like I have another kid, that won't grow up.

Chloe comes to visit

Chloe is a 6 month old Mini Aussie. She and Finn played chase in the house, in the back yard, then crashed for a bit.


But then Chloe was off again. She is a busy. happy girl.


Notice her left eye is about 1/3 blue, gives her a mischievous expression, doesn't it?

Christmas tree totals...

Final total results of Christmas Tree vs Wolfhound tail: 9 ornaments and one candy cane. But only one of the ornaments actually shattered!

The tree is now down, and the living room belongs to Finn again. He is now free to indulge in his happy greeting dance at the front door.

Sort of like this, with more tail action.
