Annabelle - Bad Girl Busted


So.

Annabelle walked over to the back door and rang her bell, which is my cue that she wants to go out.

Being a good mom, I walked over and opened the door for her, but she had disappeared.

When I turned around this is what I saw - little dickens!






















I guess she likes yogurt with granola . . .

Annabelle plays and plays and plays



It's a gorgeous day outside. 

Much too pretty to work on taxes (even if I am scheduled to drop them off tomorrow).

So.

I decided to join Annabelle outside.

And I talked her into posing for me.










She let me know when she started getting bored . . . 






And reminded me when she thought I didn't catch the hint




Then just turned her back on me 





Pouted for a few minutes
 




and then ran off 






 and grabbed a stick









When she got bored with her stick, it was time to run across the deck a few times









And now Annabelle wants to rest.


And I need to work on taxes.


Which one's more fun ?

Thursday - Puppy Kindergarten!



Thursday evenings are Puppy Kindergarten evenings.

But before kindergarten, we always need to pop into The Pet Place to say "hey!" to friends and buy a few treats.

Tonight we had a fun visit with friends Darcy & Vera Kwong and their cute mom, Amber Dollyhigh Kwong.











You never know who you might run into here!






















Lookie!  It's my pal Dozier!









Time to quit partying and go to class . . . 












I'm tired now . . . 



Let's go home.
