This is a very happy Monday for me, indeed. My dear friend from Tennessee has made the trek to spend a few days with me here in Wisconsin. She arrived yesterday around dinner time and it’s been so much fun catching up. I can’t wait to post about everything that we have planned!
I had originally thought she was arriving Saturday, but when I found out it was Sunday, I decided to tag-a-long with Craig up north to drop the dogs off with his parents. Shout out to my in-laws! Craig and I waited far too long to find a home for them over our vacation and couldn’t find a safe, clean, reasonably priced place to let them stay, so we asked them and they agreed to watch the boys.
We left Friday after work and got there around 8:30. Needless to say, I was exhausted after a full day of work and long drive, so I hit the hay pretty early.
Saturday was so much fun! Not only was the weather absolutely perfect, Rudy got to try his hand at swimming. It took a little coaxing to get him into the water at first, but once he was in, he really enjoyed splashing, swimming, and drinking (ew). Myles was a little bit of a party-pooper. He is such a diva. Seriously. For being a herding dog, he is certainly meant for the indoors. He doesn’t like being wet or dirty, and when the flies come around the has a meltdown.
Here is our Saturday in pictures.
Rudy became increasingly intrigued by the noises and smells of the woods. We had to create a makeshift gate so keep him from running away! Also, I will not be surprised if his head gets stuck at some point over the next 10 days.
After breakfast, we headed down to the river. Where Rudy got his first swimming lesson.
I was so sad to leave them behind, but I know they are going to have a blast. Thank you Dennis and Jo Anne for watching the granddogs! I know it’s going to be tough getting them to leave!
