One picture is worth a thousand words or so they say. That would make this a very short post. Our favorite old Rottweiler, Axl, who will be 9 years old next month, spent the evening laying on the couch between me and my wife while we were watching a movie. It shouldn't make any difference that it was a funny movie about animals and that Ruff watched the whole thing from the other couch, and thankfully, didn't charge up to the TV and leave nose prints on the screen. Axl, on the other hand, slept through the whole thing. And did he ever sleep. After the movie ended my wife and I got up from the couch and Axl remained sound asleep with his head resting on the table I made from a slice of a tree, with his front legs dangling off the edge of the couch.
When we came back in the living room Axl hadn't moved one bit so I went and got the camera to record the scene. After taking a few pictures we sat down and watched the 11 o'clock news and then we carefully woke him up so he could go out and do his pees before bedtime.
By the way, this Summer has been one for the record books. We have had a severe drought and more than 60 days of temperatures in the 90's. It has been so uncomfortably hot we have not been outside very much at all. That would explain the lack of more posts and pictures. The weather has just begun to cool off and all we need now is some rain.
