The day after a holiday or a family gathering is usually a down day for the dogs; they are usually so exhausted from being awake (from all the people activity) that they sleep most of the day. I had every intention of taking them for a nice hike this morning and then ended up having one of the laziest days I’ve had (in recent memory.) So our hike ended up being around 6:00 pm and now they are sleeping and recovering from their hike. 🙂
I have two quick stories I want to share about the dogs, my dear friend Mindy came over today to give me a massage (yes, she is going to massage school and needs the practice…have table will travel.) After the fabulous massage Mindy was going to teach me how to meditate, so we sat on the floor with our backs against the couch, some nice classical music playing in the background and began our meditation. Delilah decided she wanted to know what we were doing, so she trotted up to us and when we ignored her, she stuck her nose right in Mindy’s face! We both burst out laughing, then she decided to lay against me and lick herself. Thankfully this did not last long and she went and lay down on the couch.
The second story just shows how different the two dogs are in personality. After my shower this evening I went to the pantry to get the dogs their snack; Delilah naturally was right behind me and couldn’t wait for hers, while Sampson tired out from his hike, stayed on the bed in the bedroom and waited for me to bring it to him.
You have to love them both.
