Hmmm...I'll keep looking.

I've tried several things, but nothing wants to stick to the foam of the coaster.

Back in civilization, and DD is off these next two days so we will be...doing things.

Borrowed DD's upright vacuum this morning, and used the attachments to vacuum areas I cannot reach with my little hand-held, rechargeable. Yikes.

Sooooo.....much.....dog.....hair......

Also, a little sand, dust, and other nefarious, unidentifiable remnants of wherever we have been since I did this last....ummm, last year sometime.

Tho I can't so much see the difference, removing the loose dog hair in hidden spaces immediately improves the air quality inside the Interstate.

We took the dogs to a forest area near here this morning, walked them up the road by a creek and turned them loose....boy, did they have a blast.

Lenny sticks like glue to Lily, allowing him to be off leash where otherwise that could not happen...they played in the creek, raced up and down the road, in and out of the water, up and down the banks, having a great time.

Sweet to watch, and now they are both pooped.

Lenny is now 49 lbs, at 6 months old....I am predicting he will top 100 as an adult dog.

Save the dog hair, and use it to knit another dog!

That is such a nice outcome between Lily and Lenny. Yeah for doggie buddies.

It is a nice outcome, and I have to believe it is in good part a product of their introduction and early moments together....per Bud's suggestions.

Lily is still Lily , but she has clearly accepted Lenny, they are cohabitating nicely, and playing together on a regular basis.

Can't ask for better than that.

I must admit that my pups, especially the two Maltese mix street-runner brothers, do not get along perfectly all the time. Lily is way beyond being good...Click image for larger version

Did some running yesterday, TJ's in Connecticut, and took the dogs to a local dog park.

SIL's mother is here, as well, so we are a houseful.

The dogs are doing great, playing and running together....the only problem is that Lily keeps stealing dog food that is not hers.

Lenny is a mischievous little booger...found a piece of loose hem in these curtains yesterday, and wrapped himself up in it....I had to take a picture before DD extricated him

I saw something about dogs on this thread, so had to chime in. On the screen door of my trailer, this sign is seen:

ATTENTION GUEST

DOGS ARE WELCOME IN THIS MOTEL.
WE NEVER HAD A DOG THAT SMOKED IN
BED AND SET FIRE TO THE BLANKETS.
WE NEVER HAD A DOG THAT STOLE OUR
TOWELS, PLAYED THE TELEVISION TOO
LOUD, OR HAD A NOISY FIGHT WITH HIS
TRAVELING COMPANION.
WE NEVER HAD A DOG THAT GOT DRUNK
AND BROKE UP THE FURNITURE.
SO, IF YOUR DOG CAN VOUCH FOR YOU,
YOUíRE WELCOME TOO.

That's a good one, Tommie.

DD bought herself a basic Singer sewing machine yesterday and a piece of beautiful fabric, and...with her MIL's help...made a pillow cover.

Beautiful, inexpensive, and turned out by her own hand.

She has really become quite the little homemaker, as well as spouse, full time member of the professional workforce and co-parent to two dogs and a cat.

I'm proud of her.

Helping her with her beds around the house this morning, I grabbed a chunk of something and pulled up a bees nest...

Half a dozen stings before I could shake them off...good thing I'm not allergic.

Maggie

I've had this near obsession for years, of reading about the Holocaust, and have just finished this very, very excellent read....one of the best I have found.

https://www.amazon.com/German-Suitca...y+greg+dinallo

I have to pace myself with these books, as they are absolutely gut-wrenching to read...historical fiction, or true stories of survivors and/or those who saved them, there are no words to adequately describe the horrors of this time, nor what madmen are capable of doing.

Yup. My own mother and her mum were in Vienna, Austria during the worst of it. Plus under the allied bombings and the Russian invasions. Some stories are hair-raising, other events are unspoken to this day...

Very strange times.
