Sniffing Dogs and Sprinkling Rain

We had a small rain shower today.
Grateful for what we received but could use more.
I sat in the porch swing enjoying the sound of rain
And loving on Lizzy.
Ki-Anne wanted in but didn't stay long on the screen porch.
She still reeked of skunk.
Lizzy who helped during the skunk job by coaching from the sidelines
did not get sprayed.
She was not up to sharing the swing with Ki-Anne.
I let her stay there awhile.
She swings herself...too cute.
I think this look told Ki to leave.
At dinner Lizzy left the porch swing.

And to think both these dogs were throw aways!

Lizzy was smart.
Mutts make the best pets. Shame people think animals are disposable.

Alone time with Lizzy - dogs just need that sometimes and so do people. I am sure that time you spent swinging on the porch with her was special for both of you. How long does the skunk smell last on a dog Gail - I have forgotten as skunks usually pass by the house but never stay. One did die in a neighbour's barn last year and I can still get whiff's of it when we get rain and wind. I guess when its sprayed in wood, it might take quite a while for the smell to go.
Nice photos of the adoptee's; your Ki-Anne n Lizzy. You were the lucky one girl, eh :)

What sweet faces and what a delightful way to enjoy a rain storm.

That Lizzy face is adorable . . . happy you were able to catch that "throw away."

Keep relaxin' and swingin' . . .

Tyke is from a shelter and he's the best dog I've ever had, but possibly that's because I am his only owner. I mean, there are no other people here to mess him up. I get to raise him all by myself. Lizzy and Ki are sweetie pies.

I have a skunk bucket ready to go all the time. 1 Quart Hydrogen Peroxide, a little dish soap and about a cup of baking soda put it on the dogs, it may change their hair color but it sure cuts the smell...good for Lizzy staying on the sidelines:)

Couldn't think of better company to enjoy a rain storm.

My type of dogs, are someone else' throw away. It's sad someone would throw a dog away or any pet.

I just love dogs of any kind. Look at those two adorable faces Ki and Lizzy. To precious :-)

Enjoy the rain...and the pups!

All of our dogs are rescues and throw aways! our Biggest one was beaten nearly to death and then tied to a tree and left to die. He's the most awesome dog, 160 lbs and lives and travels with us in our 5th wheel and everyone who meets him loves him! Except the guy that broke into our camper in NY--that guy got a surprise! All 3 pugs were throw aways too. Love all of them--we've always had refugees--except one--and been very happy with them.

On another subject--Do I spy a solar mason jar lamp there????? I have one just like that from Lowe's and it is so neat! Mine looks like old mercury glass and the light at night is lots of little pin lights shooting out all over! I just love it! :)

PS I gotta find one of those gun control t-shirts down there! :D

Ki-Anne looks like she's apologizing, or feeling sorry for herself, in the last picture.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, Gail. ♥

Josie Two Shoes said...

There is nothing more peaceful than lap time with a furry friend, a bit of rain just makes it that much nicer, wish we'd have some here! Both of these girls shine with love and good care, KiAnne will surely be happy when she is less "odoriferous" soon! :-)

Country Gal said...

My granny used to say, to 'nough or too none , you need more rain, Colorado needs less...we in California need ANY WE CAN GET!

Nancy said...

I remember when you first got Ki-Anne and were wondering what to name her. :)

Brian Miller said...
