Toying Around and a funny story........

The sun didn't come out today. It is officially the first day of fall. Its probably about 70ish and I guess that is all we will see of the sunshine. Katie and Katja are inside playing today even though we went out for a walk in the rain/mist this morning. They got wet, but they love wiping their paws because they know what follows. However, I have to tell you a funny story. After our walk, I went next door to walk Abbie so she could get some excercise in too. When I returned I asked the girls if they might want to go outside. They seemed eager so I opened the back door and let them out. Now usually, I don't let them go out by themselves and if I do, I always have an eye on them. So, I looked out and I saw Katie go back in Robin's Hood's forest and I saw Katja out of the corner of my eye sitting on the driveway. I stopped long enough to come in and pick up their bowls and wash them and anything else that was in the sink. It took me all of five or six minutes and I went outside to track down the pups. When I got out there all I could find was Katie who always comes running when I call. But I have found that Katja can be a little devil and sit wherever she is sitting and look at me like I'm crazy. I went around to the side of the house checking the whole driveway and I didn't see her. I went up and down the drive and checked the entire front yard and didn't see her. I checked the rose garden and all of the area behind it and I didn't see anything. The whole time I am calling her name and by now I am freaking out! This went on for probably 20 minutes until I decided it was time to come in the house and get cookies, a lead and anything else I could find to entice her into the house. When I grabbed the lead off the table I caught out of the corner of my eye.....Katja......laying in her chair, fast asleep. She must have come in in that six minutes I was doing dishes and decided it was nap time. She scared the bejeezus out of me. But I was really glad that she was there and Katie and I just joined her and gave her a cookie of course. Its a lazy day and they are both asleep in their beds. No doubtedly, waiting for dinner.
