Puppies and Rain and Other Nice Things

My view tonight:



And also this:


September got off to an autumnal start with a good pour of rain this morning. It makes the sun look all the sweeter.

Peter and I are puppy-sitting for a few weeks. This week we’re making the transition to having Bella the Dog stay at our place during the day. Our little boathouse suddenly feels a lot smaller with an extra body in it. Especially a body who likes to lay itself on the floor of the kitchen as I cook dinner. To be fair to Bella, I am a messy cook and she helps out by licking the floor.

So far her likes include:

  • eating dead things she finds on the beach
  • chasing the light from my watch when reflected on the floor or the wall or the ceiling
  • napping
  • checking her food dish to see if anything new has been added
  • sleeping underneath the bed at night

Things she barks at include (but are not limited to)

  • our vaccuum
  • people in rainsuits
  • baby strollers
  • her own reflection in a mirror
  • a worm

She also keeps my feet warm when she lays on them as I read on the couch. It’s nice to have a dog around.
