Where is my camera when I need it?
Sometimes Skye is just too cute and my camera is not in my hands. Sometimes when she is chasing after a lizard she will go running through the yard leaping like a deer. Leaping over plants that may be in her way. It is the cutest thing ever but I can't sit in the yard all day with my video camera on hoping to catch her doing it.
The other day Mark and I were watching Newsroom on HBO that we had taped when she did the cutest thing. I have seen her do this before but this time it just had me laughing. She loves to play and entertain herself. Actually her breed, Cairn Terrier, are known for being very good at playing by themselves. She will have a ball in her mouth and use it to push another ball around the room. It's like she is playing hockey. Well she was playing with the ball, went over to her toy box and put it back inside and pulled out another toy. Maybe watching me pick up her toys which are spread all over the room most days, she is learning to do it herself. She has done this a few times since that night.
She is unbelievably nuts when she is chasing lizards outside but inside she can be a very patient dog. She comes into my office and very sweetly she will stand up against the sofa and gently paw me. She usually wants a treat or wants to go outside. She is funny because if I'm not paying attention she will put her paw on the computer which is in my lap. That always gets my attention. So often I will say "Okay Skye one more minute" and she will go lay down. Then she comes back and does it again usually about 30 minutes later so I get up and she will show me what she wants.
So on Thursday morning she was a little itchy so I gave her one of her pills to help with flea bites which she is allergic to. (She is on Frontline and we have sprayed the yard.) So I brushed her really good with the firminator brush and gave her a bath. Skye has a very thick coat and normally the breed is plucked by hand. I don't do that but get her groomed instead. So in between her grooming I can get a lot of hair out with the firminator brush. She is a non-shedding dog.
Help me....I don't want a bath!
Are we having fun yet....Not!
After bath photo session outside.
No, I will not look at you!
We have this awesome Jade plant outside which hides the air conditioner from the patio.
The lizards like to go under the air conditioner so Skye spends a lot of time here!
Hope your having a great day!
