Soaking Up The Sun


February 22, 2012 by Shannon

Part of my morning ritual is heading out and ridding the property–front and back–of dog poo.  Not the most glorious part of pet ownership but nonetheless very necessary.  It is my oldest son’s job when he comes home from school, but with more than one dog I really like it done more than once.  Plus I do a more thorough job.  😉

The little one runs about happily and plays on the playset or rides her Barbie jeep while I scoop and Rama usually takes this time to simply lie in the sun.  It’s been very nice as of late, with cool breezes and temps during the day in the mid-70’s.  Perfect for sunbathing.

Even though she may appear to be simply relaxing, Rama is always paying attention.  She will take a keen interest in everything going on around her, especially if myself or the children are in the yard with her.  She is not overly barky, but very watchful.  She does, however, seem to like barking at the stray cats in the neighborhood if she happens to spy one while she’s out there.

    Hi Puddles! Thank you for coming by to see our blog! We are a follower of your blog and enjoy it very much. Cane Corsos are not very common and sometimes people are afraid of Rama because she is very large and has cropped ears. 😦 But when they meet her, they can't help but love her because she is so sweet. When Rama wakes up from her nap I will tell her you like her brindle coloring. She'll love that! 🙂 And yes, the kids ARE hard to train to pick up the poo! Thanks for stopping by!
