No, no, no...it's not what you think! A few months ago, in the dead of winter, we received a membership packet from the Arbor Day Foundation. Heath made a donation and one of the thank you gifts were 10 trees that were to arrive 'just in time for Spring planting'. I didn't think they were ever going to come but they were in the mailbox just before the weekend!
We received an assortment of flowering trees: Crabapple, Redbud, Lilac, Dogwood, Goldenraintree and Hawthorn. These are some of the tree varieties we do have on the property already so perhaps, long ago, a previous owner of the house got some trees from the Arbor Day Foundation as well. We're trying to find a good spot for the trees!
So this past Saturday, we ran out to the store and left Carmelo outside in the yard while Cowboy stayed inside since he doesn't like being outside as much as Carmelo. The dogs stay downstairs in the Living Room and Kitchen when we are out with the doors closed off to the upstairs. You can imagine our (well my) surprise when Cowboy didn't greet us at the door when we got home. I called out to him and still no sign of him downstairs!!! I started to worry even though there was no way he could have escaped. I ran up the stairs calling out to him and as I was near our bedroom door I heard a faint whimper. Hmmm, seems our little Cowboy went exploring while we were out and got himself shut into our bedroom, since the door swings closed by itself. Once he was rescued from the bedroom we noticed his little paw indentations on the bed...and then on the bed in the other bedroom as well. Looks like little 'Goldilocks' went searching for the best bed to take an afternoon nap. Here is the mischievous napper. We adopted him earlier this year from Petfinder.com.
