There was quite the build up to Charlie and Twila meeting for the first time. We were not exactly sure what to expect.
When I pulled up to Eddie and Megan's house, Eddie and Twila were at the gate waiting for us.
Charlie sniffed through the gate and so did Twila.
We opened the gate and let Charlie in. Charlie glanced at Twila and then ignored her.
The Big Meet was as exciting as watching paint dry.
Twila pictured below, was more interested in my toy tossing abilities. Charlie was more interested in exploring the yard. [He is the little black blob in the back].
We went to the Triple 4 so Eddie could show me around his land he'd purchased years ago. He and Megan plan to build their home on this land not too far from where they live now.
Here you can see Charlie's size compared to Miss Twila.
The dogs became best buddies very quickly.
Charlie got to meet Aldo. He is one of Megan's cats. Around home, all the cats we see are feral cats.
Aldo doesn't seem to understand he is a cat at all.
Charlie had no idea what to do. He just stood next to the cat that was taller than him and let Aldo sniff him. Twila was something he could deal with. Aldo? He had no idea.
Elenore hid from us most of the time, but I got to meet her finally on Sunday morning.
Perhaps Aldo told her about his early morning cuddle with Charlie and I. Ever have a cat come and sit on your chest to wake you up???
Maybe he told her that we weren't dangerous. I'm convinced that Aldo has no idea he is supposed to be a cat.
For a birthday present I got a Lego Minifigure! I was so happy! Now Acorn Guy...
can meet with ...
My weekend was wonderful. I can be happy just watching the dogs play in the yard and reading a book on my son's deck. Or taking a walk along the lakefront ...
We took a guided night hike at Hawthorn Hollow, walked the beach, watched the Kit Festival, and took the dogs for a Sunday walk at a new favorite park called Poerio Park which I never knew existed. Kenosha has so many great places to go.
The puppers were worn out by the time I decided to head back home.
Whew! It was in the 70's when we left. When I got home, it was 92 and stinkin' hot.
Charlie and I put one more K-town visit behind us.
We will look forward to more adventures and chillin' on the patio watching Aldo in the Catio. [A cool outdoor cat patio!]
One more shot of Twila.
What a beauty!
