Happy Sunday, Small Storms, Other Reufus Rumblings and Lost GRRH Puppies!

I've been a little lazy today, and that's because it's too hot to be otherwise!
My the Mom had a lot to do today, but she was able to do it all from right here at home with us. Not only was it chore day, but it was also extra work for work day, along with the never ending GRRH duties... And to be honest, today was also an energy recovery day for her!

You see... Very sadly, two of GRRH's Sweet Emma's Puppies escaped from their foster family's fence, just an hour before the mom was to transport them to the Meet and Greet yesterday!

LOST PUPPIES: Two females, mostly black with gold markings (stripes), 3 months old, 24 pounds. Last seen in the Houston Heights, Courtlandt at 20th Street. Mom is PB Golden. We desparately need to find these girls!!!

GRRH Volunteers, including my the Mom scoured the neighborhood on foot yesterday, morning and evening. Unfortunately, they weren't successful in finding the girls... We have to believe that they have been found and will be returned to us soon!

So anyway, the Mom is a LOT tired and a little dehydrated today, and she and I did a lot of standing around outside this morning and afternoon, trying to breathe in this 100+ degree heat and entertain ourselves while we monitored the whereabouts of the Reufus, as well as his business activities.

I found a nice stick, and half-heartedly tried to find not just interest but also joy in it...
I settled in for a little of a chew, but honestly... it was just way too hot to really find it stickalicious. Just saying.
The Reufus, I guess, is too young to have a thermostat. He found his own stick and paraded around with it like it was a one-of-a-kind!
Then he tried to show us how he would smoke it, if it were a fine cigar [which it was not]!
Reuf is quite over-the-top delusional about his own fabulousness, and I sometimes wonder if he will ever come to terms with reality! I mean, he's got this gigantic ego and flaunts it 50% of the time, and the other 50% of the time, he's shadowing me.
I love the little squirt, but right now I'd like to give a big shout out and heart felt thank you to the person who invented the dog crate! No hard feelings, but just saying.

On another note, we had a 30% chance of rain today. And since we are in a record drought, we approached the forecast with 70% skepticism and 30% hope!

And when it started thundering this afternoon, I was a little shocked. I mean, this is the first we have heard since... well, you know.
The good news is that we had several hours of thunder and one tiny little storm [not tiny by The Luke standard] with about 114 drops of rain, that passed directly overhead... and the Reuf did pretty well. He got a bit anxious when it was right overhead, but the mom played a game of distraction... and we're not even sure Reuf's actions had anything to do with the weather!

It's time to go nighty-night, but I will leave you with this photo, entitled...
The Bleu Pointer
Please to pray for the safe return of Bella and Sophia. Please.

Love the last shot. What are you pointing, the way for the Reu to go away?

Tucker and Daisy

P.S. Daisy says she would love to go to Kamp Khyra with you, she will check the bus schedule soon.

P.P.S. Our captcha word is sadmix. Not quite sure what to make of that.

You're right about that person who invented the crate!! I'm glad you all had a good day, and I so hope that those little girls are found....Let us know!

PS: My word verification is 'pester' is that another word for crate?

Hellooooooooo - the Bleu! It has been way too long since we've dropped in to say hi to you and the Ruef! We're crossing paws for those cutie pie girl puppers and hope they have been found by now. Love the photos of you and Reufus - especially with the sticks - we wish we could send you some of our still-winter rain out here, but hope the weather cools down a bit for you! Love that Pointer Bleu photo too!
Hugs and Love xoxoxo

The thought of those little babies out on their own is heartbreaking. We are praying and praying and praying.

Sheila and Bob said...

We have our paws crossed and are bowing our heads in prayer

We sure hope that you find those puppies or that someone found them and will do the right thing and turn them in.

100 degrees, Wow, on Saturday it was 98 here with a heat index of 102 to 105....way,way,way,way,way too hot for us.
We hope you and your brother Reufus and The Mom stay out of the heat.

Hope you all have a good week.

*waves hello to Bleu* It's always fun to find out my fb friends have blogs too!

We will be keeping the puppies in our prayers. Please keep us posted on them.

Sending soft White Dog woos to Bella and Sophia to come home or allow themselves to be found safely and soon.

It was too hot to play outside...Reufus needs to learn chess...or Twister! And everyone should make time for an energy recharge on the weekend...glad The mom is wise enough to do so.
