We had a beautiful weekend of yard work, and the dogs spent all day outside, basking in the sun, chomping on sticks, and playing with each other (and some other pups; pics to come soon).
I love watching them play together. Most of the time, they’re just peacefully coexisting in the house, but in the yard, they like to go wild and play chase and wrestle. It always warms my heart to be reminded that they actually like each other (even though they will still grumble from time to time, like any pair of siblings).
Our news, as of this morning, is that Eden started her first heat. Which is kind of a bummer, but also maybe a good thing, because I keep hearing studies that confirm that waiting longer to spay is beneficial for dogs, especially large breeds. Guion called me five or six times before I showed up at work this morning, and when I called him back, thinking some terrible emergency had happened, he said, “Um, there are all of these little blood droplets on the floor… and Eden can’t stop licking herself…” Well, there you have it. “I think you need to take her on a girls’ weekend and explain the mysteries of life to her now,” he said. Guess so! Also wonder if I should buy her some ice cream and some fashion magazines so she can curl up on the couch until the cramps subside… 😉
