Fun in the Autumn Sun

As mentioned in our previous post, the autumn weather in our corner of the world is stupendous. What follows is documentary evidence of Shiva, Katy and Joey enjoying our new fenced yard and the surrounding spectacular fall scenery. Later enjoy a brief appearance by Snoopy and a glamorous ball-fetching session with Daisy, the beautiful Black Dog. She especially enjoys her close-up, don't you think? As an aside, note the circular brown dead spots in the grass around the 2:15 mark...this is from Shiva's single chemotherapy treatment last June. Yuck!

A Wonderful Time

Few words can adequately describe the glory of fall weather in Eastern Tennessee. Between the all-too-frequent raindrops come days of such dazzling and painful beauty that you wish time would stand still and the frozen moment would stretch out to eternity. Yesterday was just such a day as the Red Dog and a few of her friends hung-out in their new fenced front yard while I raked and Shiva's Mom cleaned. No speeches were made, no special events were was an otherwise ordinary day in a supremely extraordinary setting. (Note to self: the surefire recipe to getting distasteful tasks done is equal parts perfect weather and the love of dogs. Many, many dogs.) Now it's back to work with the memories fresh and perfect to carry me on through the week. Think of all we'd miss without dogs.

Thirty-three Years of Retail Glory

Last Saturday the Red Dog was on-hand as her favorite retail establishment celebrated its thirty-third year in business. It was a tremendous opportunity for her to mingle with her adoring public as well as recruit throngs of new followers. Due to our forward-thinking (and shameless self-promotion) we happened to capture much of the fun on video for your viewing pleasure. Grab your motion-sickness bags and hang-on as Shiva takes you on a dizzying ride through retail glory as only she can!

Red Dog Family Fun

Family time is the best time for the Red Dog, and today she was graced by a visit from her cousin Desi who gave her the full attention and love she so richly deserves. Shiva is glad she finally visited her because it's not like she's getting any younger here! Woof!

Btw...note the daredevil camera work early in the's Shiva's Mom's first attempt at guerilla filmmaking...leave comments below.

Although we understand conceptually that some of you might tire of seeing a multitude of videos showing a three-legged Red Dog frolicking in the surf of Folly Beach, we find comfort in the relative certainty that such a notion is as foreign to you dear readers as it is to us; therefore, we are proud to present to you several vignettes from the joyous event we fondly call "Follypalooza."
