Penny, my sister's dog, is a four month old basset and mystery hound mix. I was in the living room, heard the doggy door swing open, the click of toenails, and a loud thud. August has definitely arrived. But, as with pups and kids, time was wasting. There were birds to chase, holes to dig, and racing the fence line with the dogs on the other side. Right after I snapped this picture she was up and out the door. My WIP could use some more attention this morning, but I'm no pup.
