Yin and Yang - Canine Style

I just had to share this picture of canine relaxation.  Carmello and Charley (yes, Charley) got along beautifully and snuggled up together after they were finished playing. 

Carmello is on a sleepover in a possible new home.  I am hoping that his charming, enthusiastic (and somewhat boneheaded -- he is part beagle, after all...) little personality is a perfect fit so that he gets adopted and lives happily ever after!!  

Charley is recovering from his kennel cough and his surgery, as well as the wounds on his shoulders, so he should be ready to go to his first adoption event this weekend.  He is such a perfect gentleman - I can't believe that he was just dumped out in the country to make his own way.  

Seriously!  He heels on the leash, he sleeps through human meals and cuddles when given the least invitation.  He hates thunderstorms, though.  We had a very stormy day here yesterday and he hid in the Stampeaz stock room and napped most of the day (of course, he was probably still groggy from anesthesia and feeling crummy from surgery the day before, too).   Then again, maybe he just likes the smell of OZ Kut!  Oh, and incidentally, there is a big pile of Grade B OZ again, so Charley thought we should put the pieces on sale through the weekend to give him more space to stretch out in the stock room.  *grin*

Outside, the motley finches are moulting and fueling up for the next leg of their Spring migration.  It's amazing how much nyjer seed and sunflower chips they can consume!!  They'll soon be canary yellow flashes of sunshine against fresh greenery.  I'm looking forward to it!!

Thanks for the update, Webby! I just placed an order! ;)

And good luck with Charley! Hope he recovers soon and finds a great home!

Oops! I messed that up - I hope Carmello finds a great home and Charley recovers! ;)

That's okay -- I messed up, too. Check your email and we'll get it fixed! I can be as boneheaded as little Camello sometimes! :)

I'm surprised your finches haven't turned yet. You are only 3 hours north and ours have been bright yellow for a couple weeks now. I didn't realize 3 hours would make that much difference in their color change.

They're turning, Dizzy, but they're still a patchy bunch. I can't explain the difference, but there it is. I had few extra purple finches at the feeders this morning, too. That was a nice splash of color. :)
