Hip, Hip, Hooray!

Early morning in Central Texas. Love the fog. I start imagining all kinds of interesting things appearing in the foggy mist, mainly a hunting party of Comanches riding single file slightly beyond the fog line.

The "hip, hip, hooray" part is the boot comes off today, I hope. I am driving myself to the doctor with shoes on, of course. The right ankle is mostly well, still a little tender, and it feels weird to walk around without the boot. I have many errands to run before returning home, like the grocery store, Home Depot, etc. I am shameless in my excitement to leave the house without hubby or someone driving me.

BTW, Luc has been receiving some obedience training when he is in his hyper-exuberance mode. He is puzzled as to why I am making him perform as requested. Next up, when I am sure about the ankle, he will be getting a more specific obedience training -- for instance, leashing him up and taking him to Tractor Supply and/or Home Depot. When he sees people or another dog, he goes absolutely nuts trying to greet them. :D

Until next time, God bless.

Congrats on getting the boot off. Enjoy your time alone.

Yayy! It's about time -- it seems like forever ago that it happened. Here's hoping all is well under there!

I'll bet you are happy to be getting rid of the boot. Freedom to come and go as we please is something we don't appreciate until we can't.

Poor Luc probably is a little confused now but he'll catch on quickly.

Oh yeah! Enjoy your bootless day, hope you're okay.

Luc is fond of gloves? Hmm, my lab does too!

AL, Luc's favorite attention getter is to steal anything then make sure I see him with whatever hanging out of his mouth.
