Pause for paws.

Oscar was all curled up on his dog bed…

He started sleeping with one eye open to keep watch of what we were doing…

And Mack was crashed out on the sofa. But every time I tried to get a photo, he’d open his eyes and watch me to see what I was doing…

It was a pretty low-key Friday night.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Pause for paws.

We had a pretty lazy Saturday afternoon…

Good evening from our backyard.

Later, we took the dogs out on a walk. I love the hill at the end of our street, especially at night. It’s so pretty…

Good evening from our backyard. And good evening from Northside.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Pause for paws.

Oscar was just hanging out on his dog bed in our living room this evening…

And whenever we’re eating dinner, Mack always works his way under the bench I sit on at our dining room table…

After dinner, Oscar crashed out one of his upstairs dog beds…

Mack usually crashes out on the bed by my feet. And Svensk usually ends up on the bed next to me.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Pause for paws.

When we sit out on our back patio and Genifer goes inside for something, Oscar and Mack both immediately sit down and stare at the door…

And then she comes back and they go about their business. They’re pretty silly.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Pause for paws.

Twelve days ago, I had my left hip completely replaced. Tonight, I took my dog on a walk around the block with just a little bit of help from my cane…

Modern medicine is truly awe-inspiring.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅโค๏ธ

Moving just a little bit slow.

I’m able to get up and move around the house without a lot of problems or discomfort. It just takes me a little while to get anywhere…

Mack was waiting for me to finally make it all the way upstairs so we could watch the soccer matches together. All things considered, I’m not doing too bad.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ“บโšฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

They’re our best friends too.

This morning we picked up Oscar and Mack from Best Friends. And they had Oscar’s and Mack’s photos on the TV in their lobby…

I think Mack had a lot of fun over the weekend. Because he didn’t want to leave. It was either that or he really hates riding in the car. Maybe a little bit of both. He has a lot of anxiety about rididng in the car. Have I mentioned how much I like the people at Best Friends? They’re pretty awesome.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Pause for paws.

This morning Best Friends sent us a couple of photos of the buddies playing outside…

Best Friends is a pretty awesome place.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพ๐ŸŒˆโค๏ธ

Pause for paws.

This evening we were getting our stuff together in anticipation of our big fun Bunbury Music Festival weekend downtown, and Oscar was playing peek-a-boo in his new comforter that Grandma gave him when she was over on Memorial Day…

He’s so silly with that blanket. He loves doing roll-arounds on it, and he loves it when you cover him up and rub him through the blanket. You just have to be really careful with your fingers and toes because he’ll start to play rougher and rougher and has nipped some fingers and toes before. He’s so funny.

I also took these photos of Mack with my Polaroid CUBE…

I made the mistake of setting down my Polaroid CUBE shortly after taking this photo. When I turned away, Mack got hold of it and started chewing it. And that sucks. The bad news is, he chewed it and in doing so cracked the little plastic lens cover on the front of the camera. Good news is it still works. But the bad news is there isn’t any way to really protect the lens now. Better news I found the upgraded Polaroid CUBE super on sale for less than I paid for my original CUBE. And the upgraded CUBE hasย built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and free app that turns your mobile device into a viewfinder and shutter remote that works up to 30 feet away. I’ve been wanting the upgraded CUBE for a while. So good dog, Mack.ย  I’ll just be more mindful of where I set my new CUBE when it arrives. Thankfully that’s the only thing he’s chewed so far. Knock on wood.

I’m really bummed about my old CUBE but super excited for my new CUBE.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ“ทโค๏ธ
