Doggy Day Care

Say hello to Sasha. She lives right next door to us. But on weekends, we get to watch over this sweetie while her family heads down to the hospital to be with Ashlynn and Tami. (Be sure to check Ashlynn's website for an update on how she's doing. She is completely adorable!)

So, Tom brings Sasha over on Friday and she settles right in with the our family. This pup plays hard and when she's done, she ZONKS hard! This is a nightly ritual in our house. Dano climbs into bed and Abby lays next to him and they have their moment of togetherness. Well, no one told Sasha that it was Abby's moment, so she jumps right on up there with Dano and Abby and the three of them have some bonding time. At first, old lady Abby (mid-yawn, above) didn't quite know what to make of Sasha spending so much time around the house, especially when it came time for the nightly bonding. But over the last few weekends, she has gotten used to it and dare I say it, is enjoying Sasha being around?! When Tom comes to take Sasha home on Sunday nights, Abby has been known to go sit and stare longingly out the front window. It's a sad sight indeed. Don't tell her I told you that.

So, after the moments of bonding, everyone falls asleep. I cropped Dano out of the sleeping photo, as per his request. Heh heh. Here are the girls, as we like to say, "crack to crack."

This only lasts for so long and then Abby jumps down from the bed and goes into her Dorm Room. Sasha, choosing comfort over privacy, stays on our bed all night, curled up in a tiny ball. She makes a great cuddle pillow!

And that, my friends, is another example of animals living together in harmony. Missy Laura will be so proud!

Hayley and I are off to Olympia for another round of Power League volleyball tomorrow. Yes, two hours away. We almost got to slated to play in Stanwood (about 20 minutes north of here.) But no. They only taunted us with the possibility and then, you shall drive two hours to play! FINE! (Listen to me whine...everyone knows I'd go anywhere to watch my Bobo play volleyball.)

Have a lovely weekend!
