    I came in from felling and bucking up a big standing dead poplar tree and found our two dogs camped out by the Isle Royale. Our twelve year old Cairn terrier has had quite an adjustment this year with the arrival of my son's service dog, a young golden doodle with lots of energy. They seem to have sorted things out today.

    Our new rescue is too much for the older dogs to handle, but now they seem to have it sorted. Lots of playing, a little disagreement.

    ;lolSome days when I see the dogs sitting around, or laying around, I have to think about what I am doing for them and what they are doing for me. o_O

    In the big dog's case, he does quite a bit for my disabled son. Elvis picks up items off the floor, opens drawers, turns lights on and off, runs and gets help if my son falls down and can't get back up. The small, old dog sleeps a lot and gets up from his naps to eat or go outside.

    Notice how the dogs have a way of working out their differences when a new face is introduced. Always seems to work out in the end. Humans should pay more attention.
