Lucifer’s Morning After

UPDATE: Lucifer Lou had his first day of being grounded to his leash while taking our morning walk.

We made it to the far end of the beach where we usually let the dogs run, Sami happily took off bounding around. Lou took four steps and realized he was still attached. In true Lou form, his response was to wag his tail, tangle us up in the leash, while bouncing joyously and shouting, “I regret NOTHING!!!!”

Sami was able to get some exercise while chasing birds up and down the beach. She managed to come back immediately when called . . . Lou called her a “show-off.”

Yep, life with a dog!

"I regret NOTHING!!"
“I regret NOTHING!!”

Conversations with Sami

As long-time pet owners, we often have conversations with and for our pets. Sami has a wicked sense of humor and often has some great one-liners.

Here is an excerpt of a conversation with her Dad while we having coffee the other morning.

SAMI: Daddy, are there boulangeries in the US?

ALAN: No, Sami, there are no boulangeries in the US, they have Starbucks.

SAMI: Cool, can dogs go there?

ALAN: No, Sami, dogs are not allowed into the Starbucks.

SAMI: Well I don’t know why not. It can’t be because they’re afraid of dogs, they’re all heavily armed.

Just life on a daily basis with our MinPin!

Floral Surprise

Memorial at the beach

Each morning when we head to the beach we never know exactly what we’ll find. The waves change the face of the beach each day. Some days it’s rocky, some days it’s sandy, some days there will be an enormous log, some days the beach is filled with shells, other days sea glass is everywhere.

Sami is always a bit wary when a new log or stump shows up where there wasn’t one the day before.

Today we found two rainbow hued roses someone had left as a memorial.

Sami loved them; Lou snuck up on them like he was hunting and barked . . . I think he was expecting them to fly away as if they were birds. He was a bit confused when they continued to stand there on the beach and growled  at them the whole time I was taking photos.
