Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

Heidi Testing the Bed


(click on photo to enlarge)






















"Seems soft enough."























"A little too soft here in the middle."



















"Only a double bed? I could fall off and get hurt." Must convince the new guy how much better a King sized bed would be.."



"Ahh! The bed works good for me. I will let the guy sleep at the foot of the bed."

mmmm well I may have said that she will fit perfectly into your home and life but she definitely doesn't fit in the bed! :o)
Kingsize it is then! hehe
(She looks very content)

I enjoyed reading about your trip going to get the dog! That is a big long lean dog!! I think she is perfectly at home, but perhaps a king size bed would be a better fit!

I love it when an animal gets a good home!

So you picked up this tiny little doggy, lol ! Goodness she is big !! Of course she needs a kingsize bed. I had to laugh that she wanted to sit on the lap, poor boy, the dog is bigger then he is. Now I am curious how your commun life will be !

Philip,

Wow! I had a lot of posts to catch up on. The garden is really doing well and that broccoli looks delicious. Dave did a great job there.

I am so glad you were able to get Heidi as a companion for you and I think her name is perfect for her. She is beautiful. I am definitely a dog person and like the larger breeds.

I enjoyed all the photos, especially the ones of your grandson. Heidi certainly made herself at home on his lap. Meeko likes to do this as well. Even large dogs crave attention.

I'm glad Heidi is making herself at home. It looks like the arranged relationship is going to be a good one.

Sorry about the brakes. Be careful!

Thanks for your comments on my Dieppe post. Yes, Uncle Bill said the Canadians were scapegoats in Operation Jubilee. He disliked Mount Batten intensely.

Take care, Philip. So glad to hear from you and stop by for a visit. Take care of yourself, your handsome grandson and Heidi.

Blessings,
Mary

This reminds me so much of how Gage reacted to your bed.... I see warm nights ahead and winter snuggles a plenty.. ha!... good luck Philip.. and I'm so pleased for you.

Philip--Oh, I am so glad. I grieved in the sad story of Gage's departure from this world. And I am curious if you ever got confirmation on your suspicion that a neighbour shot him.
As for Heidi--she looks like a treat of a dog. Great Danes are quite placid dogs, in spite of their large size, they tend to be calm.
She appears to have settled in!
Love the detail of taking your grandson along--good memories for him.

I am so happy for you! Beautiful dog, very handsome grandson. I am sorry someone tried to hurt you - that was serious. Please be careful!!
It is good that Heidi settled in so quickly - I think she knew who you were when you showed up. They know...
Thanks for the pictures, the story of the trip. I am looking forward to more great stories and pictures.

Making herself quite at home already. What a sweetie. It's a shame someone neglected her, but so fortunate that you found her (and she you!).
