This is exactly the effect I was aiming for when we left for Camp Bow Wow on Friday morning. I picked up a dog too tired to stick his head out the window on the drive home and this is the view I looked at for about 6 hours straight once we got home.
He's bushed. I'm thrilled.
Our camper did really well on his first day. The report I received was that he was playful and friendly, even if he did pee on another dog. Poor thing. Oh well, at least it was her bath day.
So we signed up for the warm up package which includes 3 half day visits and a bath. Just in time, too, since my back needs a break from a job like bathing this beastie boy (even if he is good in the tub). We'll see how the socialization of Leo progresses, but the doggie exhaustion is a nice little side benefit.
It's late now, and I've tried and tried to find a shooting star tonight, but it's just too cloudy and a little too bright near the city. I was hoping to find something to wish upon to aid the Detroit firefighters injured today. Seven of them in all, with 3 critically hurt. One of them is a friend of my daughter's. They went to high school together. It's sickening to think that life as this hero knew it (and he is a bonafide hero), will probably change, and likely because of arson. Really? Last year, my colleague's cousin was killed when he fell through the roof of a burning building fighting a fire. The man who started that fire did so for $25. Is life really that cheap? It makes me sick.
Fresh out of shooting stars, I'll continue to pray for all of them and hope the news isn't as bad as we've heard for Sara's friend.
