Living the dream


I just wanted to check in and give my adoring fans a glimpse into a typical day of my retirement.  You didn’t think I was just going to lope off into the sunset, did you?

First, I have been hanging out with Ed’s better half, Kimberly, and my best buddy, Willow.  My days consist of sleeping late, walks in the park, and naps on the couch.  Sounds like a pretty good gig, huh?  Check out the selfie I took on one of my hikes with Kimberly.  She smells much better than Ed and is a lot easier on my eyes!

You know, when I was working there were so many rules.  I couldn’t eat scraps off the floor, check out the cute poodle that lives next door, or show some love to all my peeps at SAS.  But now, I can walk on the wild side!  I always wanted to herd those sheep at SAS, but of course, that was off limits.  I finally got my fix when we were at the lake the other day.  I hope the ducks didn’t take it too personally.

I usually like to nap on the couch but in a pinch, I’ll take whatever I can get.  Speaking of naps, I hear one calling my name now.  Until next time….
