We call her the Q-Tip.  She must clean ears!

I remember a time in my life, not so long ago, when I could sit and enjoy the end of the day out in my back yard.  That was before this obscene change in the economy.  Now the neighborhood’s changed, and sitting outside amongst the sounds of nature has turned into sitting outside listening to […]

Here is my boy in his new collar. He’s a SuperHam! What a guy. I love him to pieces. A friend of mine also suggest Super Hamsome, which is also cute! Thanks Kat, for that one.

This morning, before work, I had to bathe Mimi. She stunk! Though it was a little hard to find her. She blends into everything so well when she wants to hide from something like the camera. Not so much a bath, but give her time. She’ll learn to hide from that too. She is the […]

We’re happy that Hurricane Irene didn’t hit us, but praying for the Bahamas that they stay safe through the storm. It’s a little strange outside. There are winds blowing and they sound like the stray winds of a hurricane, and not the average everyday wind. They are more powerful sounding even though they aren’t anywhere […]

I think my Aussie boy may have hip displaysia.  He sits unusually and when her runs, he bunny hops.  I will be getting him tested mid September.  He’s such a funny dog with a good sense of humor.  I hope it ain’t so. Raven sits differently.  Her back end is tucked under her, which is […]

I put my bag of dog supplies together for Raven’s class tomorrow night. The only thing I forgot to do is zip it up. That was bad. I heard someone ripping a toy apart earlier, but I thought it was a toy they’ve been working on regularly for days. One of those Tuffies toys. So […]

This isn’t the cute picture I tried to take an instant earlier where Mimi had her ears standing upright.  Why not?  Recently, among all her other adorable quirks, Mimi has become camera shy.   I took this photo from a distance and zoomed in on her.  Check out those front paws.  They are paddles!  She is […]

I arrived at work on time this morning, 30 minutes early.  Well, actually, 40 minutes early if you figure I would be at least 10 minutes late normally.  (This was so I could leave 30 minutes early to take a novice agility class with my Aussie.)  But it was hard!  Lucky for me between the […]

I mowed what I call “my lawn” today at lunch time, and tonight my sinuses are hurting.  I guess my allergies to the green stuff are kicking in more and more.  Wow!  No fun.  I am on Zyrtec and steroid nose spray and sometimes I take Advil Cold and Sinus and antibiotics.  Recently, I found […]
