Meet Clancy, And Hear About His Adventure With Waldo.

The funniest thing happened tonight. First, let me introduce Clancy. He's a Pomchi, a Pomeranian Chihuahua. Last year we took him in as a stray. I'll tell more about how we happened to adopt him in a later post. For now I just want to tell you this silly story. We have a modest yard, but we've developed it to include a deck, a patio and a gazebo. There are garden benches all around the yard here and there, and bushes, trees and flower beds, making a nice retreat from the outside world. At night, we have lights over the deck, patio, garage and driveway and it's very easy to see your way around the yard as it's only about half dark. The dogs love to run circles around the gazebo and they've worn a race track into the grass where the grass will not grow. Waldo and Clancy love to chase each other around the gazebo as fast as they can, and when they catch each other, they chew on each other and growl and have a great old time. Today my husband and I went out for dinner and when we got home, the dogs were ready for a good run and tumble in the yard, so we let them out and my husband and I stood out by the garage watching them play. Around and around they went, circling the gazebo. It's always fun to watch how fast they can go. Then for some reason, Waldo decided to turn and run back in the other direction. Both dogs came careening around opposite corners of the gazebo, and yup, you guessed it! They crashed head first into each other with their heads knocking like a couple of mountain goats, and what a thud it made! Clunk their heads went, like something out of the three stooges! It was so funny! Luckily it didn't seem to hurt them and they went running off together again. But I'll bet Waldo will think twice before doing that again! Poor Doggies. I wonder if they're having headaches tonight. Woof! ~Carol Jean~
