Sunshine, Children and Dogs

We are having another glorious bright fall day in Saskatchewan. I am loving it especially seeing as how it is usually winter in Saskatchewan at this time of the year. It is so nice to be able to put my rambunctious puppy outside and let her run her energy off playing with Roscoe. The kids are disappointed and want me to chase Roscoe into the house because Frankie would rather wrestle with him than play with them plus when they are playing Roscoe needs room the maneuver and he tends to bowl the children over if they don't get out of his way fast enough. In all fairness to Roscoe, room to maneuver is necessary as Frankie's idea of play involves chewing on everything including Roscoe. Benjamin loves to play with Frankie and is looking forward to me coming out to his place tomorrow and bringing Frankie along. He will have her to himself for a few days and not have to compete for her affections with a dog.

This morning I just about died laughing. Frankie loves to get hold of the luxurious fluff that surrounds Roscoe's hind end. She gets a pretty good hold on him and he can't dislodge her easily. He has tried walking along but she hangs on and and drags along. He has found a solution. He sits on her. About all that sticks out is her tail. It was not just a fluke because every time she gets a grip on him he sort of backs up to relieve the tension and then he sits. I find this hilarious. It doesn't seem to hurt her. His butt is pretty padded. We still have not got the cameras out and captured the puppy play. We have to do that before we leave tomorrow. I refuse to go until this is accomplished.

I was thinking the EXACT same thing as Melanie. No jokes. Oh man, how I'd love to see that in person. Or even the video. LOL
