A passing shower

Today we had the first rain shower that felt like spring. A few rumbles of thunder, and much excitement on the part of the dogs who were outside at the time. I'm not sure they were excited about the rain as much as the prospect of coming in and having a leisurely breakfast inside. Oliver is already ready to go back out and hit the puddles....ah, the exhuberance of youth!

My neighborhood is a chain link fence neighborhood, and I have garden fences, and dog pens up as well, so I don't like the dogs to go outside until the thunder passes by.

Oliver and Lily both have the lanky looks of dogs getting ready to hit a growth spurt and they are eating like there is no tomorrow. Lily will probably end up being about the size of Prissy. Oliver is harder to tell, he's a month younger and with his background he could grow longer or taller. However, at 4 months and 7 pounds, he is on track for becoming my 15 pound dog I wanted. At 10.2 pounds, so is Cody, but he's not getting any taller....sigh.

how much does it cost you to feed the 'gang'? mind you, knowing you, they'd be well fed and you'd just have a piece of toast!
