Tomorrow will be 2 weeks to the day from when we lost our Prynnie Girl. There were times during the week when I welled up. There was a day or two that I just cried. But I know in my heart that my Prynnie girl didn’t want me to be sad. We’re doing our best not to be.
We’ve also had 2 weeks to really get to know Max now. For a 61 pound dog, he’s almost cat-like. He’s very quiet and is becoming very well behaved. He’s getting all the attention now and, well, I think he’s learning how to deal with that. Being the big brother, he came for hugs but always went back to his spot in front of the door wall or on the sofa or chair. Every morning when I would come out of the bedroom to start my day, the kids would be sunning themselves in front of the door wall. Oh yeah, unless you’re from the midwest you may not know what a door wall is. It’s a sling glass door. Well, that is where the kids sunned themselves. Prynnie just loved it! She was such a sun worshiper. The hotter and sunnier the day, the more she would want to go outside and lie in the sun.
Max, being blacker from having more spots, would prefer the shade when they were outside. Prynne would take a few steps onto the patio and just lay down. She would often moved to under the lilac bush. Max, he’s head for the side of the house and lay in the shade.
Max & Prynne Just Chillin’
Yup, that’s Max on the left. That was taken on a hot Friday afternoon, our first summer in this house. Yeah, it’s the same house we bought for the kids 4 years ago now. First thing we did was put a big old fence around the property so the kids could run free. No more leashes, at least for the potty breaks. Wound up being just under an acre.
From that spot, you can see out to the hills on the other side of Pottstown. That’s PA, Pennsylvania. We’ll save that picture for later.
Their spot on the hill looked out over a valley with lots of life. There are cars driving by, people walking down the hill, a little village just laying there for them to see. Our house sits up on a hill that looks out over a small village like area. It used to be a big field, but they came in and put in a parking lot…. and some buildings too. The buildings house doctors, dentists, insurance agents, and a day care. On the other side of the road are townhomes. Cars travel up the road between the two locations, people walk their pets and kids, and occasionally you’ll see someone on a bike or skate board. There’s always a lot of activity. Keeps those spotted heads moving!
The weatherman is just saying that tomorrow will be our first snow, here in the burbs of Philley. He did call it Novelty Snow though, which means that type of snow you can just catch on your tongue. No snow plows needed 🙂
Prynnie loved the snow…..loved it! She would run through it, stick her nose deep in it and plow through. She was hysterical to watch. Add a ball or a frisbee and she was in heaven! She was always so self entertaining.
