i had stashed all the excess dog toys in pickles crate while the floors were being mopped yesterday.

there was a tiny sound of dissatisfaction behind me while i watched a movie last night.

you see, pickles likes to nap in her crate when the evening activities are over but it isn’t quite bed time yet…


“sad really.”

“oh woe is us…”

today….we’re experiencing weather.

the dogs don’t like weather.  it ruins a perfectly good saturday.

plus, the house is being cleaned so they’re restricted to one room at a time and aren’t allowed to follow around and get underfoot.  being underfoot is one of their FAVORITE passtimes.

hope you’re all having a better weekend than cody bear and pickles.  poor dears, they do suffer so…

“it’s not my day to watch her?”

ok, what gives?  for the last few months my dogs have alternated who lays in the bedroom by the back door and who lays on the mat outside the shower.  usually it’s pickles,  she seems to be on shower watch 4-5 days a week and cody does the remainder.

how did they decide on this schedule?   they never fight or “rock paper scissors.”  they just walk knowingly to their places.

clearly i’m missing some of their more subtle communications.  however, nothing about pickles is subtle, so who knows.

later taters!

gramma’s little sweethearts….

have i ever mentioned “seasonal bandana syndrome” to you?  sbs:   when my mother fabricates then sends seasonal/festive/holiday bandanas to the dogs.

now cody bear LOVES bandanas….but…i think he knew these were ….PINK!

me:  “ohhh. baby loves!”

cody bear: “this is emasculating.”

me: “but you’re so cute and gramma loves you so.”

pickles: “um….i’m going to kill you.    …..tonight.”

the  package had two festive bandanas and one dozen heart shaped snicker doodles. (snacking on them now.)

nothing for the cat.  she’s quite relieved.

“we are NOT amused.”

try them again on st. patty’s day.  pickles likes her beer and cody bear looks great in green!

and so i came to a screeching halt.

screeching…get it?

on our way home from the self serve dog wash friday i saw THIS hanging out over the road on a side street…

a great horned owl!  he knew perfectly well i was there, but he wouldn’t look at me!

the dogs were very patient.  pickles sent off a warning bark when a stranger approached the car, as well.  good assistants…even though they were wet.
