Getting Quirkier

I think as Gypsy approaches old age she is getting quirkier. I've written about her quirky nature. Here she is checking the sky for big black birds (or 747's) keeping them clear of our air space. She hops down the step on three legs, circling to the right at the bottom every time. Many things.

She has never been a fan of loud noise and hates the 4th of July.
Hey, I'm very patriotic though!!!
Yes, she is that. Anyway we were outside the other day and Gyp stands up and with tail between her legs, walks over and goes into the garage. After a few minutes she stuck her head out, checking things, and came back out and joined us again. Then 10 minutes later, the same thing. Sandi noticed gun shots coming from a local range and that is what had her all upset. We could barely hear them.
Could be a long hunting season this year on the shore.

Pretty Girl

This is what Gypsy looks like after a visit to our miracle worker groomer. Gypsy has been going to the same person for her beauty parlor needs since she was a puppy. We don't go full out fancy pants cuts on her. Mostly just a puppy cut. We try not to have her cut too short as she would then look like a refugee poodle.
Not a bad looking Gypsy Gal...

Hot Summer

 It's been a very hot summer. We walked this morning and saw signs that summer is coming to an end. The field behind us is about ready for harvest.
Relaxing on the hammock after the walk. Gypsy and I tried to take a selfie.

Lazy Labor Day

We had a bit of a lazy Labor Day around here. The town was buzzing all weekend long with visitors, weddings, and happy people. We ended up our weekend with a 20 mile bike ride this morning and then some quality poodle time in the yard. It was a bit warmer than it has been but Gypsy does a good job of finding cool places to lay.
Holiday weekends in our little town are special.

Feeling Better

 Yep, Gypsy is feeling much better. Thanks to those that asked about her. Sandi and I took her along with us to lunch the other day. She didn't get her usual cheese burger off the kids menu but she did enjoy the view.
We couldn't decide on what these guys were. They seemed to be very interested in Gypsy though.

Easton in Drag

OK, before you start getting the wrong idea, this was a fund raiser for Hospice. Our little town always has something going on. Street concerts, Plein Air, Water Fowl Festive, and last Sunday was the third annual "Drag Race" to support Hospice. The organizers get prominent citizens to volunteer to participate.
Good thing you are not a prominent citizen!!!
True. I don't think I'd make a very good contestant. Look at the legs on these guys.
Anyway, people line the streets as the "guys" parade up and down the street. Eventually they line up and sprint (in heels) to the finish line.
I think I saw Caitlin Jenner!!!
Gypsy was still not 100% so I stayed home with her while Sandi and her crew went down for the festivities. Everyone has a hoot and they raised over $70,000 for hospice. Not bad for a bunch of Queens.
