Saturday morning surprise

There are those days you wake up and spring out of bed with ease — today’s going to be a day full of wonder.

We didn’t have anything in store, really, for Saturday. But when we woke up and saw two white-tipped tails beating on the dog bed in unison, eyes intently fixed on us, we should have known the boys had other plans.

We got up, fixed some coffee, had a big stretch — the boys in classic downward dog position and the humans in more of a sun salutation — and threw open the back doors to the yard to greet the morning sunshine.

And that’s when we saw it! The stick!

It was a lovely gift from our Live Oak to our boys. And the boys took one look and knew immediately what to do. As though they had dreamt of it and woken up with tails wagging, ready for the takedown.

Once they had defeated it, they proudly wore it around the yard, like a cape draped over a king’s shoulders.

  1. One of my favorite things about dogs is that they take such pleasure from the simple things in life. Just one of the many things we learn from our canine companions. 🙂

  2. Super cute! What a nice surprise for the boys. 🙂

    I once has my own “stick surprise”. I was out walking with one of my dogs in the woods, and he, too, found a stick. Yet, on closer inspection, turned out to be a full deer leg bone – from ball joint to hoof. It was no easy task wrestling his find from him. Never saw a prouder boy!
