A Dog, a Cat, and Nature

We have a new member in our family, Molly. She is a little sheltie around 10 years old. She was my parents dog, she was so attached to my dad, followed him everywhere. When Mom moved into her apartment, Molly went with her. She was doing OK, but not getting the exercise she needed, as it was difficult for Mom to get her out. So when Mom went into the hospital for a couple days, Molly came to stay with us. We collectively agreed, that she was doing so well here, that she is now here for good! Molly has some health issues, arthritis, and a scarring on her face that she has had all her life. We don't know what it is, some skin disease that was a trait in her genes. But she's doing well here, she runs now, barks with the other dogs, Mitzi is thrilled to have her best friend back, and we love her to pieces, right along with the rest of the "kids".
Mitzi has also adjusted very well and loves to sleep in the kitchen sink. I don't know why...she must like the cool or something, all I know is she's just so dern cute!
Yes, Andy, no need to look so mad, you are still my main man! Such a handsome guy, love those beautiful green eyes and your leathery skin! There, did I make you feel better baby boy!?

Even though my flower garden didn't fair well at all this year, most of it died off except for my Black Eyed Susan's and phlox, a quick stroll around the property showed me that Mother Nature's garden is doing beautifully! To me, there is no such thing as a weed, if it flowers and adds beauty to your surroundings.
