Just took these pictures this morning in the yard. Pink bushes are called Rose Tree of China. They are incredibly beautiful right now. The Norland Apple tree for the last two springs has been in full bloom by May 16 (my birthday), this year it does not have blooms at all, or yet... maybe they are still coming. The crabapple is just about ready to bloom. The white blossoms are on the Maytree. Spring has been cold so everything has been slowly coming along. Rhubarb is coming in good, as usual.
Chewy got a haircut today. More like Chewy got a hair-butcher today. I worked on his hair for hours. It is a long, tedious job to groom him. When he is done he looks pretty good. I have not mastered the buzz clippers yet but I know if it would work properly this job might be easier.
Anyway, I think if he stays out very long he will definitely feel a chill! I clipped off enough fur to cover two more little dogs. He looks so different! But he is still cute.
After his haircut this morning I gave him a bath. I don't know if it is common for shihtzu's to turn maniac after they get wet but he turns into a little gremlin, just like the movie "Gremlins"! Maybe it is to naturally warm him up so he does not shiver to death as he waits to dry.
Last time I saw Millie she was sitting in a chair (Friday). It was so nice to see her up in a chair. Adam had just returned from his away job and was there suctioning out her throat so that she could breath quieter. She had one eye open and was looking up. She had on ear buds and was listening to music. I waited awhile then I took them off so that I could say hi!
Two of her daughters are up here now, visiting her, from the Lower 48.
