Good Day

Hi, Hope you are having a very good October. Today, Bree and her friend, Ellen came in. Bree's bikes were still here and they each needed one so they drove 3 1/2 hours to get them. And to eat lunch with us. It was a nice day. As I sat down at the computer tonight, I saw the same thing I do every time I sit here very long... these three spoiled babies. So, I took their picture.
I am not really one of those serious dog lovers. Really, I am not. I have never had a dog in the house till now. I wanted a dog a few years ago and found Elliott advertised from his home in OK. Casey met the owner and brought him home for me one Thanksgiving. He was suppose to be my dog. But, he loved Brian the most from the beginning. He is so attached to Brian. Then, I agreed to take the second Maltese, Georgie, the smallest yet one year older dog. He came to us with some serious issues. He had not been cuddled much and spent lots of time in his crate. When he first came, he licked his crate continually. He could not handle it if anyone touched his crate. It was his whole life. He has opened up and now he really loves me. He isn't sweet in anyone's eyes except mine because he yaps at them. My sister found the black mut/chihuahua on the highway and was unable to locate the owner. She brought her to Bree and she immediately loved Bree. Bree was in the office working for Brian when Kim brought the dog by and Bree took walked down to her apartment with her, opened the door, and Gypsy ran in and immediately up to the very top of the back of the couch. So, we knew she knew her way around the house and was probably used to being in charge. When Bree moved to the city and her schedule was such that she is never home, that would be miserable for Gypsy. So, of course, she is here now. And there isn't a sweeter dog anywhere. She is a perfect, loving companion. And she gets along well with Elliott. But, she does shed and that means I am cleaning the floors all day. I have a sheet on a chair and she does her resting on that sheet. I really wished I knew some elderly lady who would love a little black dog. But I don't. So there 'ya go... our three dogs.
I forgot toe tell you what I did... Bree told me that she had told Ellen that we would be so excited that they were coming! Bree told her that we love parades and that we would probably have a parade in honor of them coming to town. She, when I knew they were to be arriving , I went outside of town and stuck some American flags into the wet ground and I held up a sign that read "Welcome Ellen!" and I waved several flags also. Kim was suppose to get there to blow her siren but she was a little late.
Anyway, we did surprise Bree's guest who grew up in Chicago and enjoyed coming to Haskell.

What a welcome! :-)

Now seeing those adorable dogs in their beds lying comfortably - don't they just bring a smile in your face? :-) And them being so sweet - I think it'll be hard to resist loving them.

That is a GREAT photo! as I type Sean is playing with Koke who has grown and grown. You wouldn't believe he big he is!
We have had to make a lot of changes to accomodate him but they have been worth it.
The big surprise is that Niall loves him so much.
