Idina – Superhero!

(sniff, sniff, sniff, sniff)

Come on Idina!  Let’s go!

(sniff, sniff, sniff)

Come on!  I have to get back.  I’m working today.

(sniff, sniff)

Idina, now!  I can only be away for a minute.  I’m technically at work.

(sniff.  So am I.  sniff)

Come on, I have to prepare for an important meeting!

(sniff, sniff.  This is more important! sniff)

I’m earning money for kibble.  What’s more important than kibble?

(sniff, sniff.  I’m protecting us.  I’m saving us from harm. sniff)

Come on, Idina!  You’ve been sniffing those tracks for five minutes now!

(sniff, sniff.  This is very important!  I may be saving the world. sniff)

Idian, now!

(sniff, sniff.  World, nothing.  I’m making the Universe a safer place!  Nothing is more important.  Ouch.  Why did you have to tug so hard?)

Come on, Idina!

(OK, OK, I guess the Universe can take care of itself for a couple of hours while you’re working. )

True story.  or so it would seem from her body language ;)


Idina’s Monster

Idina with the magic stick

I poked my head into the sunroom.  The wet,miserable day visible out of the large windows gave lie to name of the room.  It had been raining nonstop since early morning.

Idina looked over and wagged her tail.  She was perched on a chair next to the sliding door.  All morning she stared out of the window.  Occasionally she barked, but by the time I got into the room she would be calm again, looking at me happily, wagging away. Continue reading

A Smile a Day – Day 14 – Idina

Idina with the magic stick

Idina had a question for me.  “Why do you seem to always post about Fiyero?  Were are my posts?” she asked with her big puppy dog eyes.  I hung my head.  I didn’t really have an answer.

Idina is our rescue dog.  She is most likely mostly Pit but there are other things thrown in for good measure.  She is as sweet as any dog can be.  She is not sparing on the “kisses” at all.  If you want to be licked from head to toe, just talk to Idina.  She is also ultra-playful.  She doesn’t get a lot of Fiyero’s games and has no use for most toys, thinking only guys like ball sports.  She is more a rough and tumble type gal, preferring to run and wrestle.  And run she does!  She is fast and agile.  Sometimes Fiyero can catch up on a long stretch, but lately she’s been beating him even on the long runs.  And if he starts catching up, she just needs to change directions.  She also keeps running and running long after Fiyero is a pooped pup.  He’ll let her run around and only chase her in short bursts when she gets close enough.

Idina – New Puppy, New Photos

It was, very cold.  The wind was howling.  It would have been a great day to hang out at home, but we drove a little over an hour to Kittery, Maine.  After waiting in a deserted parking lot for almost an hour a truck with a trailer pulls up.  It was almost midnight.  People walk out of the four cars and trucks that were in the parking lot, walk to the far side of the truck, out of sight.  They emerge with something tucked in their arms and hurry out of the cold to the waiting warmth of their vehicles.

What was the man in the truck dealing?  Some nasty drug? Continue reading
