Rudy

Rudy is our next door neighbor's cat.  He often sits in the garden and peers through the fence, watching our 7-month-old Springer Spaniel running around the yard chasing butterflies or her shadow.  Lilly is oblivious to the orange tabby cat who sits and watches from the other side.  Our older, wiser dog Abby, knows Rudy is there.  I think that Abby and Rudy agree, that Lilly is a bit looney toons, but good entertainment.

LOVE the picture!
It sort of reminds me of how I feel about reading blogs. Just a slight glimpse through the pickets into someone else's world.

So cute! I noticed in your last post that you've read The Irish Country Doctor. I've been eyeing it. I've loved the novels of Rosamund Pilcher (Scottish) and Marcia Willet (English) and most of Maeve Binchey's. I'm going to purchase that book, based on your recommendations. Thanks!

Best,
Bonnie

That picture, and the story behind it, gave me a big smile this evening! Thanks for letting us in on the Peeping Tom.

That picture should be framed- such a perfect capture... and so very like a cat :)

Such a cute photo. Poor Rudy seems to be saying 'well I sure don't know what to think about these crazy dogs next door!" Blessings!

I love that picture would make a great painting. I am so glad I finally found your blog again. When my computer crashed I lost touch with so many things. I know the information is still on the old hard drive but have not found anyone to retrieve it. So now I will try to get caught back up. Barbara

That is an awesome photo! You should enter that somewhere, it would win in a heartbeat :)

I find it hard to believe that your new puppy is oblivious to Rudy... I think that will come in time!

Oh my goodness. How cute is that picture?! And I love the first commenter's observation. I totally agree.
