my dumb ( or maybe pretty smart) dog

I had a lot of things planned today. Blogging wasn't one of them. The weather has just been so beautiful the last couple of days, so on the top of my list of things to do today was start cleaning the backyard. I pulled out the power sprayer to really clean off the ash and dust that has settled in. I put my dog's bed up and moved everything that I didn't want wet. I had to put his bed on top of a copper fire pit because I hosed off all the patio furniture too. I had an appointment at 11:00 and was starting to run late, so I let him in the back yard just before I left. The thought crossed my mind about putting his bed back for him, but the patio was still too wet. I figured he would just grab a nap on the chaise lounge like he does sometimes. (yeah, I know, my dog is the epitome of spoiled and they coined the phrase "creature comfort" after him) Anyway, I rushed back home to grab something I forgot after my appointment and looked in the back yard to see where my dog might be. I couldn't see him at first. I thought something might be wrong. Something was wrong. I was looking for him lying on the ground or on the chaise. Not there.
He found his bed. And he didn't mind that it was a little higher than usual. What a crack up!

This is enough to make me smile for the rest of the day. Have a great sunny restful day.
