Phoebe's holiday camp
I figured a separate thread will make it easy for gb to follow the activities of her baby Bouv, without cluttering up the regular Idyll threads....
She had a quiet night in her pen in our bedroom. Randy says there was little or no fussing. Misty wanted out about 5:45 this morning so Randy put them both out. He said Phoebe looked uncertain about what she was supposed to do out there so early in the morning! But, when I got up around 7:30 and let her out of the pen again, she made a beeline for the backdoor, went out and 'did her business' promptly. Walkies after breakfast this morning wasn't too interesting - no neighbourhood dogs out to meet her... So she came back and hassled Misty a bit :-) All visiting dogs seem to do this:
She's obviously feeling more relaxed this morning - which means she's acting up a bit, testing limits. She was less inclined to stay put on her mat during our breakfast and wants to play, using her teeth a bit :-)
She seems most mellow out on the back porch. It's a convenient spot to keep an eye on anything interesting that may be happening in the backyard. So we spent a couple of hours out there this morning. This is not a great picture but I like it because they are both in the same pose and it shows that they have somewhat similar faces despite the difference in scale:
The back porch evokes a mellow mood (although the deck covering could use being swept and washed!)
Phoebe is somewhere in this picture but I can't see her... (this is the view from the longe chair, looking west)
It looks like we're due for some more rain soon. I guess I'll be finding out shortly whether Phoebe is bothered by thunderstorms..!
