Seriously. Check it. You'd buy ANYTHING from me, wouldn't you? ;) (Have a couple more of these but will try to get them up last week.)
By the way, I have to note how wonderful Ben has been the past week or so. He can be a bit, um, exuberant (though nowhere near the way my parents' Golden is!) or willful at times, expected because collies are, after all, thinking dogs. But I've been really under the weather lately...My meds made me feel so badly and gave me such an almost unbearable allergic reaction that I just quit taking them (NOT smart), and really fell off a cliff healthwise. Getting down our short hall in under five minutes has become cause for real celebration. ;)
And during all of this, Ben has been so sweet and gentlemanly! No more pulling on the leash; no more being afraid of the backyard (he sits under the oak while I check my tomato and pepper and bean plants); no giving me horribly tragic looks when I tell him to just stay in one room when I need something from another (he has to be with his humans AT ALL TIMES), and just generally being really...well...perfect. And we know no dog is perfect, but he's been so GOOD. They really do know, don't they?
Anyhow. I'm not dying or anything (even if I feel like it! Stupid doctors). Y'all have a great weekend! To be honest, I am loving the heat & sunshine.
