Our good friends Darren and Sherryl Friesen headed out of town for a couple of days and needed someone to look after their dog…good exercise in realizing the extra work a dog creates!!!  Letting him out to “pee” at 4:00 am in the morning is a new experience for us.  He slept in our bedroom…would not sleep in his bed but cuddled up on our bedspread quilt on the floor for part of the night and the rest of the night decided to play some kind of running/shaking game…hilarious.  Now he has been running back and forth in our backyard in circles in the snow…wagging his tail…and barking…loving the warmer weather.  Delightful entertainment for me this weekend….the simple pleasures of life are what bring joy…today a friend’s pet dog!
