On Sunday, DS and I went to meet my friend Racheal at a dog park in BR. She took her little schnauzer Dexter (aka Dex or Dex-to) while I just took DS. We decided that little Lola Bean wasn't social enough to go to a dog park with a bunch of other dogs around. However, there was a little 4-month old chihuahua there named Spike and he was as cute as could be. David Scott and Spike quickly became buddies. And although Lola is starting to tolerate DS more, I'd say she'd have been pretty territorial with this little guy being all up in DS' business. David Scott loved it though. He so very badly wants Lola to return his love for her.

Not to leave Dexter out, DS was fond of him as well -- pulling on his ears and petting him sweetly. There was an older lady there (who was wearing a fanny pack -- chuckle!) and she apparently has whippets as pets. So here sho comes with one of her dogs coming over to see the "human baby" as she referred to DS. Great. So we're sitting on the park bench as Whippet Lady arrives and she starts speaking her dog's thoughts -- "Oh yes, that is a cute human baby. Yes, that black schnauzer (Dexter) is annoying" So I take it upon myself to "talk" for my human baby to take up for Dex by telling her that "Dexter is my (DS') friend and you (she) shouldn't talk about him like that." She then responds with, "What? Ok yes, it is time to go. That human baby IS boring." Crazy dog lady...
Tonight, after Lee arrived, we ran over to New Orleans to visit Scotty and Lee's cousin Shelby who had back surgery yesterday. Uncle Davey, Paula, and Whitney were also there and they'll be there til Shelby is discharged at the end of the weekend (we hope). We took a little care package full of goodies. Shelby will start at LA Tech in the fall, so we wish her a speedy recovery!
We're getting all packed and ready to head on over to Destin and are very much looking forward to a relaxing (ha!) time. I hope David Scott has a good time at the beach and loves it as much as Scotty and I do. Tough nuggets if he doesn't. A beach vacation is a requirement for every summer.
