Cotehele has this sweet way of thumping her tail on the bed and licking my nose when she thinks we have slept enough. Dragged myself out of bed this morning to take Cotehele outside and give her breakfast. 8:15 a.m. should be late enough to sleep, but after two busy weekends without any down time a few more minutes lounging in bed would have been nice.
I pulled on enough clothes to go outside without embarrassment, loped down the stairs and opened the front door. Oh my, it was warm, sunny and the birds were singing! After a quick doggie breakfast (for her not me), I dragged a chair on the porch, pulled out a rug for Cotehele and settled in with the morning paper. Cotehele raised her head into the wind and with nose twitching enjoyed the wonders of whatever scents came on the wind. Ah, we are both ready for spring to come and stay.
