Easy Like Sunday Morning

We have been very lucky to have had a weekend of sunshine in December. The garden is a bit of a mess, but I get to enjoy looking at it, and everyone else is enjoying spending time in it. My momma Ellie gets to go on supervised outings. I still have no interest...the window is just fine for me.

Momma sniffed noses with Bennette. Cecilia was hanging out, but she isn't a fan of getting her picture taken. She's kind of like Grete that way. She sees the camera and she runs!

Our Grete dog is doing really well recovering from her elbow surgery. As my mom and dad said, she likes to "play through the pain". She no longer feels the awful pain of her elbow dysplasia, so she thinks she's just fine and wants to bounce around. Here we go again...weeks of making sure she stays quiet enough to heal. She's whining again...uh oh. My mom and dad got some sedatives from the kind doctor to make sure she stays still enough to heal. We are looking forward to a complete recovery and her return to the dog park and her boyfriends Trek and Calvin.

A winter garden is good to explore, lots of extra smells! I'm very happy to read that Grete is doing so well, she must feel like a new dog without the dysplasia pain. Best of luck keeping her quiet. Have a lovely Sunday!

Your garden looks like ours but ours is now under some snow so it is hidden from the PM's view!

Glad Grete is doing well. Two boyfriends? Wow! Impressive!!

We are doing Banshee's "looking for Cory" post tomorrow. I am allowing her to post it on my Mancat Monday slot. She owes me one!

Cory, we are glad it is nice enough for Ellie, Bennette and Cecilia to go outside, but we are with you, we prefer the inside. We only go outside to go to the vet, and then of course that is in our crates. We also very happy to here that Grete is doing so well after her surgery, and we hope she can keep still enough to recover quickly. We hope the rest of your Sunday is wonderful!
