Sunny and rainy day....

Thanks to all of you who were concerned about my suddenly absence. I did not do it on purpose. Someone stole all the phone wire in our neighborhood leaving us without phone or internet for 5 days. I wanted to make a long post about that but then I thought... life it too short to be complaining about the things we can't change. We do our part trying to be good people and hoping things will be better here in Mexico soon.

We had a mixed weather this weekend. Sunny, rainy, sunny, rainy. So, in the afternoon, we went out for my walkie before the rain could get us outside...

I saw birdies having baths... and I wanted to join them!

I looked for the mean barking doggie...

Then... the sky started making noises and we had to run back home...

Here I am anticipating my yummy dinner...

5 minutes later, the sky was getting dark...

And then... rain again.
And that was the end of my weekend!

Olive said...

Well, I sure did miss you.. I have been away too.. because Mom has not been helping me much! :(

Lots of licks!!


Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Lorenza. Good to hear from you. I was wondering what happened to you ... I was thinking you were very disappointed with your Santos. Anyhow, ooooo walkie video. It must be the it thing now. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

We hope things get better there too, but you just keep doing what you are doing and stay happy. YOu look adorable in your pretty dress and we just love that little wiggle:)

Twix said...

Girlie! I missed you and I'm sorry that those things happened to you.
I agree with Khyra, that is one of my favorite dresses of yours. Love how the skirt is a little different than the others....tell your grandma she did good! ;o)
I have one thing to say about that video..... Shake what your momma gave you!!!! Hahaha!

Sam said...

We hope that doesn't happen again! I wish we would get a little rain...


Kess And Her Mama said...

I like your philosophy on life. How encouraging. Our weekend weather in Malaysia was just like yours!

Glad all is back to normal.

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

We missed you, but are glad that everything is okay (other than the rain)! Beautiful dress!

Lola said...

Oh, Lorenza, that's terrible! Is it copper wire? I know that people are stealing copper wire everywhere these days. But that's about all I know about the subject. Anyway, you were very much missed and I'm so glad you're back and that you're OK. Like Sugar, I thought maybe you were too down about Santos losing and Max passing to post. I should have known that you don't let things get you down.

The dress is fabulous. Absolutely a great look. I hope that things get better around you soon, but at least you know you always look good.

wags, Lola

houndstooth said...

Aww! We're sorry that somebody stole all the wires, but glad that you are okay!

Mom says you have the cutest little wiggle! We're glad you didn't get your pretty dress all wet!


Jazzi said...

Sorry bout the rain but you did get a walk in huh?? Your dress really looks so cute but then they all do anyways!! Glad that you have internet again and that it was nothing serious!!!


Samantha said...

We were wondering where you were too - sometimes it happens here, but not from stealing "stuff." So glad to see you back and doing your walkies! Even your leash matches your beautiful outfit, Lorenza! Hope things are better there soon! Happy Sunday!
Hugs xoxo

Wyatt said...

That must be ruff, being without a phone or internet for 5 days! Glad you have an upbeat attitude and by the way, very stylish dress today, the big orange bow looks good on you!

the 4 Bs said...

that's terrible that your telephone wires got stolen. we hope that things get better in mexico for you too. you are right to just be good people. you are a good person too, Lorenza!


Sierra Rose said...

My goodness! That is one crazy stunt to pull all the wires. So sorry! We're having mail stolen out of mailboxes in our neck of the woods these days. Boo to all the hooligans.
Glad to see you my friend!!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Stella said...

Piappies World said...

Hi Lorenza,

We have been having the same weather changes here in Phils as well. Just when we were complaining about too much sunshine, we are getting sunshine and rains on the same day!

We are glad you are back and safe.

The Animal Doctor said...

Fudgie is right, Lorenza. But after a long stretch of sweltering temperature, I welcome rain!

Youre very pretty in that orange dress, orange looks good on you.


Dragonfly said...

Hi Lorenza,
Welcome back!! :-) Its getting cold here now - winter starts tommorrow - I haven't been on many walkies - we don't like the cold weather - I'd rather stay snug at home! Cheers, Patsy xo

Huskee and Hershey said...

Sorry to hear about your stolen phone wires.. :( Anyway what matters is that you are back!! Missed you heaps..

Sunshade said...

We missed you and wondered if you had gone on a vacation!

You and your dresses always make me smile Lorenza. I hope your sky stops making noises soon and stops raining so you can go for more walkies with your dressies!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Brindusa said...

We have the same weather here, too. We just can't figure out what season is this. One day is sunny and warm, the other day is rainy and then cold as autumn. I just cut the fur of the 2 very furry "kids" of the family and I hope they wont' get could.

By the way, here wires get stolen all the time. They are sold as scrap iron.

Mr Koda MD said...

Dinner is worth ending a walk for!

Another pretty dress!

Welcome back and hopefully the new phone line learns to defend itself!

3 doxies said...

Oh Lorenza, we was soooo worried out ya'll. Thank goodness everybuddy is ok though.
