We Eat Tonight

Just picked, these are the first beans I have grown in nearly 30 years, and they look pretty good. I usually just put in tomatoes, peppers and basil, but I saw a packet of seeds this year and thought Why not? I only put in two rows but I enjoyed watching them come up and now we'll enjoy them for dinner tonight.

What I didn't enjoy while I was picking them was listening to our neighbor's puppy yip and cry.

They brought home the cutest little terrier mix a few weeks ago. They call him Cooper and he's about 4 months old now.

They already have two dogs so they really didn't need Cooper but the breeder was going to do something bad with him. They said they couldn't let that happen. Very noble of them but why do they leave him outside alone to cry and cry? Why don't people realize dogs are pack animals? When puppies are left alone and know you are nearby, all they want is to be with you.

A couple weeks ago I had to go into the house because I was afraid I'd go over there and take him away. He had been crying for nearly an hour. Some people just shouldn't have pets.

Those look fantastic. It is so sad about that puppy. There are no-kill shelters that might have been a better idea.

Your bean look awesome. Enjoy!
Our neighbor on one side had gotten two puppies about six months ago. They are large dogs now and when we are outside they just cry by the fence for us. I know that they have each other which is a good thing but these people leave them out for at least 12 hours a day. It's so sad and all they want is love from us. Even when they are home with their back door open for the dogs to come & go they still come over and cry for us.

Yumm on the beans!!
So sad about the puppy. I know our little yorkie loves to be right with us, she even follows me around if I'm alone in the house with her.
I hope things improve.
