I know there have been quite a few Wally posts recently, but as long as he keeps providing the material, I’m going to share it! 🙂 Ever since blind Wally arrived from a Houston shelter in November 2018, he has gravitated to the wood stove whenever we have a fire going. In fact, on his first morning here he was already parked in front of it. Alayne took that photo above a couple of weeks ago … it’s a shot we’ve tried to get many times before, but he always stirs and rolls over when he hears us getting the camera.
But this time he was in such a deep sleep he didn’t hear a thing … not even as Alayne was quietly sweeping up the area around the stove. He was out for the count, sleeping soundly while basking in the warmth of the stove. We call this Wally’s sauna + nap routine.
We thought we were finished with using the wood stove for the season, given the record high temperatures we had last week (we hit 94 degrees F or 34 degrees C on May 27th), but last night it was cold enough for a frost warning … and another fire in the wood stove. You can bet where we found Wally yesterday evening.

That’s a great picture! Oh, what luxury!
Long ago I had a dog who loved to lie close to the woodstove until he was so hot he was panting. Then he would ask to go outside, where he’d cool off by strolling around in the snow. Then he’d come in and lie down in front of the stove to start another cycle.
The weather has certainly been unusual this spring…
Keep the Wally material coming, we love Wally!

How adorable is he?? He sure knows how to relax. The weather has been a little crazy. Forty or more degree temperature swings in one week is not unusual but certainly doesn’t seem normal. It’s funny, his coloring tends to blend in with the stone around the fireplace. If he had no black on him, he would be invisible.
