What's up?

You'll have to pardon me and Duke. We both seem to have our minds somewhere else these days. I think my head may be in the clouds somewhere because I can't concentrate on anything and absolutely nothing is getting accomplished.
Duke's excuse is that he was occupied with keeping a watch

Watching what you might ask. Well Duke had a little visitor again. Lola (yes, my son named her Lola) came to visit. She's a bit more active now and she can really give Duke a run for the money. It was fun to watch her chasing him around this time. It seems little Lola was a bit tired after all the play time and thought it was time for a bit of a nap.  Duke said he would just park himself right there and keep an eye on her.

He finally decided that she wasn't going anywhere so it would be a good time for him to catch 40 winks also.


But Lola says...
I'm not sleeping I'm planning my next attack.

I'm sorry if I haven't responded to your comments in the last couple of days. I really do appreciate all of them and I so enjoy reading what you all have to say. To update you all on the basement, we didn't get the storms they were expecting and the basement is safe. The river is gone from the back yard and now we are just waiting for the sun to come out and dry things out a bit.

I'm glad you didn't get those storms. Awww, Lola is just a puppy! She must have a case of puppy love.

Sandee said...

Lola is adorable. I'll bet she is giving my Duke a run for his money. Good for her. He's still in charge though since it's his house. Just saying.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke and Lola. :)

Donna said...

This post is precious!!! Love the end, LOL! And I am so happy that your home is still standing and the worst part is over (I hope). Sending you some sunshine vibes! hugs ~Molly

Marg said...

Goodness, that puppy is so cute. Glad Duke has worn her down. Good job Duke. You be sure to let her know you are in charge. Glad the water didn't get into your house. We dodged a bullet last night and didn't get any tornadoes. Close but they didn't get here.

Julie Harward said...

LOL now that is funny! Is Lola going to be a big dog? They will be friends for sure. ;D

Tanyia said...

So glad your basement is safe!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Ann, I too am WAY behind on comments this week... We were lucky also and didn't get the severe storms.. BUT--I'm sad for those who have lost so much.

Lola may be a baby now--but soon, she'll probably be larger than Duke... I'm sure you have told Duke that he needs to be FRIENDS.....

Hugs,
Betsy

Grace said...

Anny said...

She's here again.. YAY! Lola is a beautiful name.. and Lola would be good for Duke.. hehehe.. a lovely companion she will be.

Karen said...

Ha! It does look like that is what Lola is thinking. So cute. It is good to hear that your basement stayed dry and the water situation is getting better. My oh my, this weather has been awful. I feel so bad for everyone.

Josep said...

Lola is really cute, it has beautiful eyes.

FishHawk said...

Has Duke been wanting to teach Lola how to dog-paddle?

Duni said...

So glad it stopped raining!
Lola has such big beautiful eyes :)
I wanna smooch the top of Duke's head, it's so cute!!!

Miawa said...

OH my! I bet Duke is in heaven with the puppy and it is so cute.

Russ said...

It is nice to see Duke have company. It keeps him on his toes. They look great taking their nap together. Just don't get too comfortable Duke.

Oh my goodness! She could not be any cuter :) I'll bet Duke (and all of you) just adore her. So precious, sweet Lola!

It does appear that Lola has something curious on her mind :)

Country Mouse Studio said...

How sweet they both are :O)

Ann said...

Ginny,so am I. Lola is a little doll.

Sandee she sure is, I'm enjoying the show

donna thanks, and I'm glad too.

Molly thanks for the sunshine vibes, I can use them :)

marg isn't she though. She had a blast chasing Duke around

julie Lola is a lab, chow mix so I'm betting quite large.

Tanyia I know, she's a cutie alright

beaded tail so am I. a little rain is ok but torrential downpours I can do without.

catherine I know exactly what you mean and those little puppy kisses are so cute

lin yep, he's not the very best one though..lol

betsy glad you didn't get th severe storms. I know how you feel, it's awful what some people are going through right now. Lola is going to far outweigh Duke.

Grace, I preferred Daisy but he went with Lola, it's already growing on me since she's so darn cute

anny yay and it wasn't as annoying as the first time.

karen well the pictures may be out of order but it worked for this post...lol

josep, believe it or not those eyes are blue

fishhawk oh I don't know, I wonder.

duni yes she does and they are blue

miawa he does seem to be enjoying her company

russ it would be nice if he had a companion while we are at work but I don't know about having 2 dogs

out on the prairie, I think you're right :) I was wondering if anyone would sing the song

sandra we're still a little swampy in the back yard but that I can handle. They did look cute laying there together

the old geezer thank you

dss there's nothing like a puppy face :) And yes everyone seems to love Lola

ldh it does, I think she's going to give Duke a run for the money

country mouse studio aren't they though. fun to watch too

Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets! She's a little butterball, but will soon be much larger than her angel.

Doris Sturm said...

Duke seems to be smitten with Lola - how cute! She looks like a little sausage lying there all fat and sassy ;-) so sweet...I love that Duke is enjoying her!

Doris Sturm said...

p.s. I'm glad you're ok and have been spared a natural disaster! It's been very scary for a lot of people.

Ann said...

Booker, the former lord of the manor was a chocolate lab. We know how they can be :)

sharkbytes oh yes, much much larger. I can't wait to see how he'll act then

doris me too, I enjoy watching them. Tahnks and yes, it has been very scary what some people are going through right now.

Anne said...

Duke is the ultimate guard dog. Do you think he would come here and guard the cats.

Ann said...

Anne, I'll ask Duke if he wants the job :)
