For the record, I did not ask the dog to pose for these shots. I happened to be walking by and saw George sitting among the buttercups in the shade of a tree so I told him to stay and went inside for the camera.
He really does seem like he’s posing though, doesn’t he?
We had some nice weather this week and then some rain. And by the time I’m writing this post, the grass has been cut and the buttercups are gone. It is beautiful outside and today was perfect, although I spent much of it doing indoor chores that needed to be done.
Early last night, I sat on one of the Adirondack chairs on the front lawn in the waning light. George was with me and lying on the grass about 10 feet away from me when from the darkness of the woods, a deer slowly emerged. It continued to get closer and closer to where I was sitting as the night started to come full on. Fireflies had begun to appear and I whispered to George to ‘stay’ and told him he was a good boy. It was so peaceful.
And then George decided to get up and sit right next to me. The deer startled, giving a huge snort, and took off back into the woods with its tail raised high. What a nice memory.
Thanks for stopping by, my friends ~
