Black Dog Sunday

It was a good week for our Black Dog. He enjoyed lots of runs and hikes. He barks with happiness or anticipation of good things a couple of times each day.

Much of this is thanks to CBD oil which has put the spring back in his step. We are learning that he needs it within a few hours of a run or hike for it to help. By fine tuning the timing of it, he's been happy about most outings.

One night when we went to see Comet Neowise, we brought our Black Dog. It was so wonderful that he wanted to do the short hike with us to see it. The Runner brought a La Fuma chair to recline while watching. Our Black Dog climbed up onto it, lying on the Runner's lap to enjoy the night.

The only hitch was when law enforcement was trying to make all the comet-watchers leave. We humans were trying to stay below the radar. Our Black Dog heard all the activity and started barking. Fortunately, no one noticed before we quieted him down. He's not a "stealth" dog!

Happy Black Dog Sunday!

  2. Beautiful black boys do not have to be stealth dogs!

  3. R It tickled me funny bone when I visualize your handsome black Lab in the Runner's lap.
    Thank goodness you three were not discovered by the Neowise Police.
    Hugs Cecilia

  4. We are so glad you're doing good handsome R!

  5. LOL!!! "you GO dearest Black Dog!" XO

  6. We absolutely love that you bark because you are so happy or are anticipating something fun, R♥

  7. I'm glad the CBD oil has made such a difference. Just started it today on Xena to see if it helps at all with the itching. *fingers crossed*

  8. It's good to hear R is doing so well on the CBD oil.

  9. You need a double chair, one seat for R ,one for Runner, side by side. Such good results from the CBD oil, hope it continues.

  10. Ha Ha - R just wanted to share his charm with law enforcement too:) Glad the CBD oil is working so well.

  11. LOL! I'm sure he was just telling the law enforcement to leave you be. :)

  12. BOL!!!! OMD, R, you rock dude! I would have barked too much, and got Ma's arse kicked out...bol!
    I am sooo happy the CBD is workin' so well! That brings a huge smile to my furry face!

  13. I love that R appreciated his special seating arrangement :) My LaFuma recliner is also called into service when I want to watch the sky, and I've shared it at various times with a sociable hen or a young - but heavy! - goat.

  14. Aww, what sweet boy. Your comet photo was spectacular.

  15. It's always good to hear that R is still doing so well! Funny that he almost gave you away! :)
