a dog day

Putter is pooped out. She spent the weekend with the Peep at Chief and Lulu's house while Slick and I went away for a couple of nights. More on that fun soon, but in the mean time I am checking often with Putter to make sure she is still breathing. I have not seen a dog sleep so soundly. She did not move during the night- a change from the walking around our bed getting comfortable routine she normally preforms. She got up this morning only long enough to eat and lay down again. She wandered slowly into the kitchen while I was feeding the Peep but then walked- dare I say crawled- back to bed for more sleeping.
Chief and Lulu's house is too fun for sleep, especially if you are a rowdy beagle. This weekend proved no exception. There are dogs on both sides of their yard- the one on the East likes to come out and torment Putter and the two on the West live outside full time and bark like maniacs regardless of if Putter is out or not. When she is there Chief and Lulu encourage Putter to go out and bark back so they "have a dog in this race" so to speak...
This weekend there was an added element of fun in that a pair of ducks have landed in the back yard and decided to stay a few days. They swim in the pool and nap on the deck. We were not there when Putter was introduced, but the rumor is that she was not as hospitable as we would have hoped, especially for the dog with "Perfect Attendance" from Pet Smart puppy school, but the ducks must not have noticed, because they stayed anyway.
Needless to say- we have little of that excitement at home- and Putter is probably glad. A girl can only take that excitement in small doses. And now... she sleeps... man it must be great to be a dog...
