Rain Cloud Hydrangeas

It's been a busy day in Flower Mound Studio, with rain outside, the four helpers and I have been in close quarters. The girls had a lot of interesting things to bark at, since the neighbors were having construction done, and Howard Pee Pugpants decided this was a great day to play Dora the Explorer, jamming himself behind cabinets and chairs in search of mysterious objects that he could get yelled at for chewing. I set up an obstacle course for him in my shipping room, putting a rolling suitcase in the doorway. He shoved that aside and marched in, no problem at all. Then I placed a blue bin and a roller case in front of the door. It took him about five minutes to climb over the blue plastic bin, and then he shoved the roller case out of the way and went into the shipping room. For our third exercise, I put a chair in front of the blue bin in front of the rollercase in front of the door. He climbed into the rungs of the chair and had to be rescued. Apparently his backup gear was out of order....

Exploring is exhausting work!
