The Week In Seven Photos

It’s been an exhausting week for little Harper who turned six months old.  She’s finally aware of the squirrels running around the yard and she spotted her first fawn of the season.  I almost missed the occasion since so far Harper is extremely quiet and failed to notify me that we had company, but luckily I happened to notice her standing by the door on alert with one paw up.

I thought we would celebrate us both surviving the first six months with our first ride in the Jeep this summer with the top off.  I was absolutely thrilled, but Harper only looked excited when we were going less than 25 mph.  She let me know on more than one occasion that she was not a fan of the windswept look and wants to know why I bother with my hair in the morning on Jeep days.

She has been letting me know in a number of different ways that our ideas of paradise are a little different and

that most days she would be quite happy to just stay home relaxing.

I have to admit that even though I’m use to the Yorkie attitude, it stung a little bit when Harper stuck her tongue out at me, but 

sometimes the strength in relationships are the differences

and imperfections.

    Six months already! Gosh how time flies!
    Harper is adorable. 😀 And I love the photo of all the animals together at the feeder. Quite a zoo you’ve got going there! 😀

    1. Thank you and the time is flying as fast as her hair in the Jeep!😁 We we’re lucky to have that deer walking with us at the park and the squirrels and birds were happy she was stopping at all of the bird feeders.😁

    1. Thank you!😁 She looks like she’s finally enjoying the Jeep and the outdoors and I’m trying to convince her that all of our backyard visitors are her friends.😁

    1. Thank you!😁 There’s been perfect Jeep weather for our outings and with each trip she’s getting more confident. Thankfully her attitude is improving and today she was smiling with her head thrown back against the wind.😁

  6. I’ve read that a lot of wind is very bad for dogs’ eyes. Apparently, their eyes dry out faster than ours do… as they do not blink enough…. so be careful!
    Super pics!
    Hugs to you know who! 🙂

    1. Thank you and it’s been extra hugs for Harper this week!😁 We’ve loved cruising in the Jeep and while the majority of the time she is laying down, I will keep an eye on her for those moments when she loves to look out the back into the wind.🙂

    She’ll have to tighten her seat belt or get blown away if you keep upping the speed! She looks pretty happy in the Jeep now, great photograph.

    1. Thank you!🙂 In this strange new world for Harper she still looks the happiest at home, but we are slowly making progress on our adventures and so far I’m amazed she’s a Jeep pup!😁 Not a fan of VAR, but I’ll just have to deal with the review and new rule change that saved Tottenham from a loss and me yelling longer than a few minutes.😁

    1. I usually love having the top off of the Jeep from May through October, dodging the rain and wondering why I don’t have the top up when it’s sweltering, but I wasn’t sure Harper was ready until this week. She’s enjoying it more than I imagined, but I’m sure she will stage a protest if we get caught in a rainstorm.😁
