We're back.....!

Where oh where has Pupparoos been...(sung to the tune of Where oh where has my little dog gone...)?  Let's just say I was taking some personal time off from writing that went on much longer than expected.  Too much going on with stuff unrelated to the poochies!

While we were away (without even going on a trip), Tucker's ears have magically tipped.  I thought he was going to have his ears up forever and we were okay with that.  Shelties and their ears....I wonder if Collies do the same?  

Tucker had a run in with the sprinklers.  We finally had to turn the lawn sprinklers on with the rainy season passing.  I casually let him out since he so politely tapped on the sliding glass door with his front paw (which is to let us know that he would like to go out please).  He will keep tapping at the door as well as look back as if to say "hurry up....please".

I frankly hadn't paid attention that the sprinklers were going till I saw this flying Sheltie running around the pool.  I wish I had photos of that!  By the time I got the rubber gloves off from washing dishes, to picking up the camera and scooting out the door, Tucker was in a perplexed wet state.

"Mom, what happened?  It's raining where I need to go potty!"

Obviously he went since he got pretty wet and I think he found the sprinklers fun to play in....just like a little kid.

Welcome back, we missed you. When our sprinklers are on, we can't go outside because some of us will dig whenever the ground is wet - and that doesn't please Mom too much. When we are out on a walk and come upon some sprinklers, we like to jump at them and try to get a drink.

We love Tucker's ears, tipped or pointed:)

Welcome back! There are a lot of things unrelated to dogs in life ;) Our old dog Jordan LOVED sprinklers. In the old days, when it was still okay to use them here, we'd turn one on for him every summer to play in.

Oh Tucker, you look so sweet. Bet that sprinkler was fun. We tap on the door too when we want to go out hehe. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
