The Bestest Weather..

It was noon today when the two of us crawled out of our cave for a walk. It didn't feel like noon.

The air felt like something out of a horror movie. Almost spooky. It was cold but it was refreshing. Light but dark. So foggy  yet sprinkling rain at times Plus snow on the ground. The park was eerily empty. 

A few laps around the park and we hit up our usual run-around spot. The skate rink.  Too wet to do much but chase each other around. It's what we do best.

Every time we come to this skate rink, its full of trash. (plastic bottles, shoelaces, food, whatever). Thankfully Taricha finds it all for me and we make the place pretty again.

Now it's nearing evening time and its thundering, tornado watches and all. Good 'ol midwest. But the day isnt over, we had a special visitor.

Sir R. , her original owner, came by to say hello. It's been a few months since Tbags has seen him and I was totally shocked by how thrilled she was! All her manners were shot out the window with one word from Sir. R and she was a wriggly jumping ball of puppy loving goodness. It was so cute how happy she was that I being the softy mommy I am... let her just have her fun with him. I hope Sir. R is happy with his new coat of white fur.


  1. If I didn't know better, I'd swear you lived next door to me! We have the same crappy weather here.

    Isn't it funny how they remember people? Our girl Blueberry lived with someone else before she lived with us only it wasn't a good experience for her. Every time we saw "the crazy cat lady" Blue would change markedly and wrap herself around our legs. I'm glad Taricha had a happy reunion with R! I'd much prefer that for any dog!

  2. Aw it's so sweet to see how much she loves him. And even awesomer that you can stay in touch with him and he makes the effort to see her!
