Saturday in The Yard with Berry Treats

There is something to love about every single day, but how can you not love Saturdays close to the most???

We didn't go to any festivals or parties today. It's been a stressful week, and we capped it off with a low key day of relaxation, lots of loving and just hanging out together.

We watched some mindless tv while... and this is a little embarassing... making a sandwich out of the Mom. Yep, that's right. I was the big bun up front with the Mom hugged up against my back and then little Reufus couldn't help but join in, and he laid behind her with his head resting on her side! It was a Kodak moment for sure, and I'm sorry that there was noone around to snap that shot!

But speaking of cameras, this afternoon we had a BLEULANDER photo shoot!

Every model has his camera shy moments. Few have soft, photogenic furs as gorgeous as mine...! Just saying.

*Please note that a handful of Nutro Natural Choice Crunchy Treats with Real Berries were yummarily sacrificed in the execution of this photo shoot!

Yep, it was a nice day of Normalcy and Calm. The Mom did leave a couple of times to see friends... and I gave her the "How could you leave me?" look each time...
Pretty good, eh??? And it must have been effective, because she didn't stay gone long!

As we begin to close out this Saturday night, we took the camera outside one last time... Where's the Bleu? Look close and you'll see me there!
We're inside, preparing to roll back the clocks, and I'm taking pause to reflect...

Life with Reufus has been really difficult. At times, he's been pretty unlovable.  He's been rowdy, destructive, boisterous, wild and uncontrollable... I've watched the Mom work hours on end, tirelessy and with consistent correction.

And it's kinda like I hate to jinx the progress... but I'm very excited and want you to know that we've made some!
Shhhhhh, but... Little Reufus has learned to chill a little. He's learned to settle on command. Now, he still has to be either right next to the Mom or right next to the me... or [preferably in his perfect world] both... but we are grateful for the chill moments!!!
It's a big comfort to know Your Loved Ones have your back!
Thanks to Yeu and Reufus for having mine!
Go Team Bleu!

We are so sorry you are not in remission now, Bleu. But you still look great in your photoshoot.

We may not get to visit as much with the Mom's broken paw, but we will be reading as much as we can.

Great photo shoot, Bleu! We are so Team Bleu and we stay by you always.

We do hope that Little Reufus would chill more and show more progress.

Enjoy your weekend! =)

Ah, but a day will come when Reuf is always a gentleman and you will get to look back and tell stories of his delinquencies with a smile. We are betting even the Bleu might have had a mischevious moment or two in his pupdom.

I think that's exactly what the doctor ordered.
Now back to that mom sandwich. Hold the mustard please.
