Old Dog New Trick

My mother stopped by yesterday for a quick visit and brought her dog with her. A corgi named Beacon. They were here for about an hour. My mom left Beacon outside but after he was done checking the outside area out he decided it was time to let himself in. The next day Mickey started doing this:

Unfortunately neither of the dogs have learned how to shut the door behind them.

BTW did I mention that Mickey runs in and out of the house all day long! Every time that door opens he thinks he has to go through it. Here's an example of how crazy this is. Mickey is laying on the dining room floor and I walk in the house. He jumps up and runs out the door, you know, because it's open. I close the door behind me and Mickey is now outside on the deck. Only he forgot why he went out there, it's hot and uncomfortable. So before I have walked more then five steps away from the door he's already opening it and coming back in the house! He does this EVERY time someone walks though that door!  I really dislike this new trick of his! :)

Catching up

Today I found out I can blog from my phone, which is cool because lately I take a lot more photos on my phone then with the canon. Also it's harder to type so there will be much less chit chat. Anyway I thought I would show you all some recent phone images of the gang as I figure out how to use this blogger app.

It's Bugsy! All grown up. 

Father and son. 

Mickey doing what he does best.

There's Daisy and my 11 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback looking out the people door of our new living room addition. No steps yet and I locked the dog door so they couldn't follow me.

So there they are. We have been enjoying the cool spring weather and spending our time outside. The dogs like to help me in the garden. Bugsy tries to eat every weed I pull while Mickey sleeps on the front porch and Daisy runs around chasing rabbits like a maniac. Hope the rest of you are enjoying the nice weather as much as we are!
