Happy dog's bedtime prayer

The Happy Dog's Bedtime Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep,
The queen-size bed is soft and deep.
I sleep right in the center groove
My human being can hardly move!

I've trapped her legs,
she's tucked in tight,
And here is where I pass the night.
No one disturbs me or dares intrude
Till morning comes and I want food!

I sneak up slowly and it begins
My nibbles on my human's chin.
She wakes up slowly and smiles and shouts,
"You darling beast! Just cut it out!"
But morning's here and it's time to play
I always seem to get my way.

So thank you, Lord, for giving me <>This human person that I see
The one who hugs and holds me tight
and shares her bed with me at night!

Beautiful Days

Don't ya'll just love this time of year? I sure do, I have gotten so busy, I haven't had time to work in my yard, but I am so looking forward to doing just that today. I have been working so much, I had to take today off, just to get some things done here at home & I couldn't have picked a better day to do it. Think I will work outside today, instead of inside, like I had planned.
I groomed The Crabtree & Moye kids on Sat. & boy did I have a great time! I set up on the back deck & the dogs enjoyed being out in the sunshine as much as I did. I brought my Chihuahua, Cissy with me as well, since I knew Robert & Gloria's kids get along with everyone. Cissy & Poochie had a blast playing. I think they were excited about finally having someone their own size to play with.
Poochie has the most gorgeous ears & they get in the way sometimes when I am grooming him, so I put them up with little girl's hair ties. I couldn't resist taking that picture!
If you all want to see Poochie in person, Robert owns Commonwealth Car Care on Commonwealth Ave. & Poochie is the "Official Greeter" & Vice President there. While you are there, be sure to talk to the guys about car care, they have the best customer service there & the guys know their stuff. Gonna get started on my outside work, I have a pond that really needs cleaning up so that is first on the list.
