Playdate!!

Harley has a new BFF (Best Friend Forever) !  She is crazy about her and Libby is crazy about Harley!  Z's friend bought the most adorable black Lab puppy and needed us to babysit her as he was going on a canoe trip.  We had her for 5 days and we had so much fun with her. And then she went home. :(
Her Daddy owner said she moped for two days and wouldn't play. Just laid on the bed with her head hanging low. So he brought her back for another playdate (we are on Day 4 of it!!!) and she is as happy to be here as we are to have her.  Grandma  (I lovingly refer to myself as) has fallen head over heels for these two canines. They are adorable together!  They romp, run, roll, chew on each other, play tug of war with a sock or a mop, and just maul each other for hours. Most of the time Harley dominates and is the boss, but I have a feeling that this puppy is going to grow to be quite big and strong so Harley may get repaid soon. Libby loves loves loves water and so when I water plants, I also water her.  She even has her own swimming pool (an old washtub). She will sit in it and just stare off. Harley on the other hand....HATES water!! Well, her favorite treat from Grandma is a bowl of ice cubes to chew but wants no part of a swimming pool or a bath using a garden hose. That's the difference between a Lab and a Britney I guess. Those two truly brighten our days!!
Unconditional Love is what it's called!!

*On a side note....the cats are pretty happy about Playdates...it has occupied Harley's time and so they have more quiet nap time.
