Atomic Dog

The title of this post doesn't really mean anything, I just like it. And I like reggae. 'Course, I like about any type music but you probably figured that. We have been having just wonderful weather lately so Lika and I went for a walk down the creek the other day. He loves, loves, loves to go to the creek. Doesn't he look so sporty?!
Lika is a pretty good ol' dog. Doesn't get into much and rarely barks. He does get into these wild playing sessions on the deck in the evenings that sound like he is tearing the place down but he doesn't actually mess anything up. Sometimes I think he believes if he makes enough noise I will come out and play with him. And I do when I can. Since the weather has been so warm he brings his day bed up onto the deck and camps out by the door. He has a big, plush bed in my studio but also has a smaller 'tote' bed that he carries around to nap on. It's really funny.
Just wanted to send a note to my Aussie readers: Hope ya'll are all safe from the fires and flooding there. I know Molly is OK but not sure where the others live. I'm ashamed to say I don't know all the geography of Aussie. My heart goes out to ya'll and your countrymen though. I hope things are under control soon. I would also encourage us "Yanks", if you are able, to make a small donation to the Australian Red Cross.
Well, tomorrow is Friday and let me tell you I am glad! This week wasn't too bad but this warm weather has got me wanting some time off something fierce. Oh, to be working in the garden and on the house! Or just lounging on the deck a little. Even Grendal has been braving the threat of Lika trying to lick her face to go out and sun on the deck. They still don't know what to do with each other.
I'll try to have something about the house this weekend!

Love the pictures of Lika. I took one of him while we were there, but he turned his head away just as I clicked.

Right there with ya on the spring fever front.

Hey Pea! Well, most of the pictures I have of Lika are with his head turned. He won't be still.

Hey Molly! Yeah, he is!

Hey Aunty! Oh, the creek is so pretty and ol' Lika is a great friend.

He really is growing into a handsome guy. I'm surprised he isn't up to his neck in the creek yet.

Hey Woody! Isn't he!?
the creek water is still VERY cold but I suspect just as soon as it gets a little warmer he'll be in head first.
