Phoebe Has Arrived And She Is So Pregnant

August 29, 2009

I think it takes white tile and white appliances behind a black dog with orange trim to see that said black dog with orange trim is so very pregnant.  I picked her up at airport cargo at around 10:30 tonight.  She was decidedly confused initially, but as soon as she walked into my house, she made a bee line for the water jug and the dog door.  To get there, she passed through the laundry room and poised against the floor and the washer/dryer, I could see the airline had served her an entire watermelon or she was quite with puppies.

Chase is sure Phoebe is here for him — he doesn’t remember getting her pregnant — so he’s following her around with his nose attached to a point right under her tail.  She is going to nail him which he richly deserves.  She has taken refuge under the daybed with only her nose sticking out.  Poor Phoebe — this is such a rude and inconsiderate boy.

Tomorrow is the Obedience Club’s fun match for which I am chair.  Chase is entered in Rally Novice so will be with me.  That will give Phoebe and Inca a chance to just chill out and eat apples (if more have fallen — this morning I picked up 60 pounds of rotten or half eaten or not-so-bad fruit).  Then I went to the Club and helped load all the match equipment, then I went to the Sheriff’s Posse Arena with six or seven stalwarts so we could set up eight rings.  The pre-entries are very high.  Once I get the “day-of” entries, I’ll be trying to figure out how to get all the dogs judged.  Our Labor Day Trials are next weekend in the same venue as is the match, so everyone wants a run-through.

Oh yeah — and then I went to a Lobo Woman’s Volleyball match.  It was the final match of a round robin tournament and our girls won in 5 games.  They won all three of their matches.  It ended just in time for me to head to the airport.

It’s almost midnight and I have to be at the grounds by 7:00 AM.  G’night all — she really is pregnant!

    I wasn’t going to let her fly down there until I was 100% sure!

    I’m excited.

    Oh, I bet Phoebe can’t wait till she looks a lot less phunny!

    Still thinking eight pretty girls! But more important…healthy pups and easy delivery for sweet Phebes!

    Hi Phoebe — welcome to The Land of Enchantment (that does NOT include that rude boy with his nose up your behind!)
