The Most Popular Per-DOG-son on my Blog

I know full well that Maxine is the most popular element of my blog, so I decided to do a little entry about her today. A few weeks ago, I actually ventured out into my garden,and she as usual came with me.
My young son put this under his treehouse/fort, as she sleeps under here alot. Everytime I tried to sneak up on her and take her picture here though, this is what she would do...
Leave her post and come get love. She lives to get loved up, and to eat, and to go for her walks.
Perfect life.
Garden needs tons of work, I weeded, I looked around while I was down in my weeding/sitting pose and thought about different things to do in my little garden. I have not done that very much in the last year, between the intense heat, humidity and mosquitos. Plus my heart has not been out here either. Your heart really has to be in your garden with you to do any good out here.
Evidence after the fact of my weeding and carting off of weeds, Maxine always comes out with me to cart off my weeds.
Cleaner from weeds all in my bricks and my garden. I have decided that I want to extend the bricks, but it will mean lots of heavy digging, carting of bricks, etc. I have asked my son, my big son to help me soon. He works out all the time, and can lift me, the wheelbarrow and Maxine with one arm.
Going to extend the front here, about two or three more feet.
Fountain has been broken, but my husband fixed it the other day. The birds are now not so annoyed with us.

For Pete's sake, this is supposed to be about Maxine. Maxine has had her 3250.00 dollars ( yes, you read that right ), surgery on her ACL, and it was a long recuperation but she is back prancing around.
Or lounging.
Look at her shiny coat, she always gets compliments on her coat.
Sweet dog, I wish I was as sweet as she is.
Futile wish, she was made that way.
She's also pretty much a gimp. Now on that we are alike. She is a very pretty gimpy dog. For my transatlantic followers, that means she is a overly -sensitive wuss.
That is also why she is so sweet.
Lots of work to do. But Maxine is ready to get inside again...

This is my cue.

So in we go. Hope your day goes well, enjoy your families, enjoy your pets, take your heart out in your garden with you this week,
