Because it wasn't so hot yesterday, and because we got 4/10 inch of rain the night before (allowing me to have a campfire), I decided to take the opportunity to visit my cabin with Sadie.
I took a frisbee along, and Sadie loved being able to pick it up and play with it any time she wanted. Since I had nothing else to occupy me, I threw it for her a lot. She does love the cabin, and when she and I are back there, I can let her roam free, because she doesn't attempt to run away like she does here at the house. She comes when I call, and never gets out of my sight. The one exception is that when Buddy shows up, which he did this morning, she tends to follow him off; but since I had the frisbee, that wasn't a problem: I threw it, Sadie fetched it to me, and I hooked onto her with the leash.
I had intended to go back there, spend a couple of hours, and come back to the house to sleep. But it was so pleasant that I ended up making a nice campfire, airing up the air mattress, and spending the night. I went to sleep to the sound of locusts buzzing, with Sadie snuggled up next to me, her head on my belly. I think perhaps that's why she likes it there so much. She isn't allowed on beds or furniture here.
I forgot my camera, but you can check some old entries and see what it looks like at the cabin. Only the dog is different (I love Sadie, but I will always miss Mandy). Here's one. Here's another. And another.
