Yesterday was Jackie’s birthday, and she and Ashley came to my Esperanto meeting. Jackie and I had beers (the Hazy U of IPA), but poor Ashley had to make due with water. (And some of Tony’s potato chips.) #dogsofmastodon
The pose in this picture reminded me of the famous Andrew Wyeth painting of the girl reclining in the grass facing a farmhouse. Here Ashley is reclining in the grass facing Winfield Village’s office and community room. #dogsofmastodon
Sunny Ashley is a pretty Ashley. #dogsofmastodon
There is a squirrel up that tree. #dogsofmastodon
More Ashley and Dodo. #dogsofmastodon
Ashley and Dodo at the dog park.
Ashley has been kinda recalcitrant the past couple of days. Hopefully a bit of tussling will help. #dogsofmastodon
We have a great photo of our first boxer when she was a puppy, that I came upon while going through my dad’s files:
Having just scanned that photo in, when Ashley jumped up on a picnic table on the way home, I spotted the similarity, and thought I’d try to recreate the vibe with her:
Not a complete success, I’m afraid, although it’s still a nice picture. #dogsofmastodon
Just a month or two after we got Ashley we happened to have the bad luck of walking right under the siren used for tornado warnings when they did their monthly test. (Something they do on the first Tuesday of every month at 10 AM.)
Ashley started howling along, which made me laugh. But then Ashley looked a little embarrassed, and I couldn’t have that.
So I started howling along with the siren myself, to assure her that it was entirely appropriate behavior, and she joined back in.
We’ve done that every month since then, but I had failed to capture it on video until a couple of days ago with this month’s test.
Ashley hanging out with her bestie Charlie. Don’t they look happy? #dogsofmastodon
