A family affair
I spent a nice day with my family today. My dogs joined in and came along to the carnival in the morning. They seemed to handle the noise and the people without too much fuss, and attracted a lot of pats and interest – like they always do. I am thankful that I am able to take my dogs out in public without fear of anybody being snarled at or bitten, but it’s always good to be aware of the potential, especially if there are loud noises or children who like to grab and pull them.
When we arrived home we prepared lunch and sat around and chatted for most of the afternoon. A good time was had by all, and my fur-kids included themselves as usual. My father had a great time throwing a toy and allowing one of my fur-boys, Angus, to fetch it and deposit it at his feet to prompt him to do it again. Dad has never had a pet that has had this talent, and they both enjoyed themselves immensely until the thrower decided it was time for a rest. My fur-girl Ruby tried out as much lap-sittings as she could manage, and my old fur-boy visitory Dylan, retired to the comfort of his fur covered airbed, watching the procedings with mild interest until it was time to eat. Everyone was treated to a steak or two, including the fur-kids. Afterwards we all sat on the front veranda taking in the laid-back lifestyle and admiring the birdlife that have made this island their home. My son and my mother promptly fell asleep after tea and coffee and stayed that way for a couple of hours, until it was time to go. My husband, bless him, once again was the chief bar-b-quer and bread roll warmer, which made for an easy afternoon for me too.
Once again, my fur-kids were a part of my day to day activities, not left out in the back yard, forgotten or locked away. My fur-kids are a part of my life, and they are treated as they should be, as part of my family.
