The last few days we have had a visitor to MY yard - it has broken 3 of our bird feeders and got into the trash one night - Mom KNEW it wasn't the squirrels and she was proved right - look who came visiting. Even though it broke Moms bird feeders (they were old and cracked anyway) - she still thought it was cute - what gives with that???? It has been really hot here ....in the 90's for the last few days and Mom was surprised to see that racoon pant to keep cool.

One thing Mom loves about walking at this time of year all is the wonderful smells there are, cinnamon ferns, native sages and mints, lemon balms, lemon grass, peppermint - there are just so many and you can not help but breath in deeply as you go - personally though nothing beats the smell of good pee mail, deer droppings or racoon poop and that dead bird - it was blissful ! All depends on your point of view and level of your nose we guess :) :)

So the Mom was wandering around a gardening center today when she smelled something wonderful in the air and after moving some plants around she found it - a Double Tahitian Gardenia. Mom had never seen or heard of this type of Gardenia before but dog oh dog - what a glorious perfume it has and the flowers are huge ! We wish we had smell-a-blog so you could all enjoy it with us.

It has been a rough week for the Mom - she got a really bad cold a week ago and it just hasn't wanted to leave - even today she is still coughing and snuffy and she says her head feels like there are sledge hammers being banged around inside of it. Added to that, MY laptop died - it was pretty old and I had typed so much on it that the letters were worn off the keys and some of the keys didn't even work anymore. The final straw was on Saturday when I went to turn it on and NOTHING happened! Thankfully Mom in her cold induced wisdom had realized it wasn't working properly for a few weeks now and had backed everything up on a portable hard drive. So on Saturday Mom and Dad bought ME a nice new laptop and within 2 hours I had everything back up and running - it is a good thing I am such a technologically savvy doggie..

So Mom decided she didn't like the new bench out the front our house and even Dad admitted he was worried it might get dognapped so they moved it around the back and put it on MY deck - I must admit it makes a very nice addition and is perfect for relaxing on and doing a little squirrel watching from. And see that big green pot on the right - it is one of two that Mom has and both are gardenia bushes that are just covered with flower buds at the moment - she says she can't wait until they start opening so she can sit on the deck and enjoy the beautiful perfume. I sure hope she is planning on bringing her own chair because the bench is taken!

Mom says we will NEVER have to worry about finding our way home now because we have very own guiding light. This is the Cowspotdog Lighthouse and YES - it actually works and has a flashing/rotating light in the top that is solar powered. Thankfully we get so much sunshine here in Florida that I stays on all through the night.

We have this odd little garden at the front of our house - well it looks like a garden but actually it is just some pine mulch on top of concrete - so Mom decided that seeing how we couldn't plant anything there we might as well make some other use of it. Dad hunted around and found this wonderful little seat with planter boxes on each side and now we get to sit out the front of our house - watching the world go by.

You might have been wondering where I am - well I am still here but I am on house arrest because I have a jippy leg at the moment and scary Mr Vet said I have to rest up for a few weeks. Having a jippy leg has it benefits though - I get to have yummy Frosty Paws Pudding Cups that have my medicine mixed in them.

When I was a young pup I went through one of those 'stages' ears up, ears down, one up and one down and so on. Mom has always wondered what I would look like if my ears had stayed up - well thanks to a nice windy day she doesn't have to wonder anymore - I look ADORABLE!

Why is it that Mom's take FOREVER to get ready for a walk - I slips on my boots and harness and I am done but the Mom - she has to make a tea, brush her hair, find her sunglasses, grab her purse and look for the car keys - my dogness a guy might as well make himself comfy while he waits!
