Change, Change, Change....


This is Camus, he's my daughter’s "baby" which in essence makes him my grandpuppy. He has come to live with us while his mom is going through changes in her life.  For the moment everything seems temporary as she prepares to move overseas to teach. To add some stability to Camus' life ( plus she can't have him at her month by month rental apartment) he is making his home with us.

Camus is a "city boy".  He grew up in the city, went to dog parks, enjoyed "diner sur la terrasse" at local eateries, traipsed city sidewalks, had his "lawn deposits" cleaned up immediately, went to the dog groomer and doggy daycare regularly; he had the hustle and bustle of city life around him.



But now he lives at Green Acres, no Park Avenue for the time being.  He's living the country life.  He has a green lawn to play on, eats off paper plates that someone puts down, he walks on soft terra pathways through tree canopied trails; and those "lawn deposits" well, they are scooped up once a week before the mower is cranked up; he has a bath under the water hose every couple of weeks; and, the hustle and bustle of city life has given way to sunning himself on the porch, chasing bugs in the lawn, skiddering after rabbits and the sound of crickets and katydids serenading him to sleep.

I think he's enjoying this country life and the change has been good for him.

What a lucky boy Camus is to get an all expenses paid vacation in the country! I'm sure Sadie will show him the ropes and educate him about the country way of life. Good luck to your daughter as she embarks on this new journey and I'm sure she is most relieved to know that Camus is safe in your loving arms.

He looks like he's having a good time. I think maybe he has found a new home.
