so you may have noticed i haven’t been here in a while.  turns out something came up.  one of those wacky ailments that keep you out of work for a week or more.  sure did sleep alot.  sure was glad to have had two amazing dogs and one cuddly cat to keep me company.

and now….i’m all better and the dogs know it and they want me off…my…ass!

oh! cody bear high fives me after tonight’s invigorating walk!

but then he’s all serious….

“you gonna ride one of these bikes?”

yes, cody bear. thanks for pointing it out!

what’s pickles doing…?


that’s how she rolls.

to her credit, she didn’t leave my side for an entire week.  they both were so protective and cuddly.

i’m pretty certain i will never find any one who loves me as much as my dogs do….

so, last night pickles had agility. i can’t think of a better way to celebrate st. patrick’s day than to spend it with your celtic dog…

anyway, our class is at a horse arena.  something was different this week. 

that’s some scary agility equipment!

then the teacher yells, “put pickles on it!”

now…you KNOW i was already considering it!

oh pickles…you’re such a good sport.

cody bear and pickles are great interior decorators.

that’s their opinion, anyway.  i think they’re do heavy with the plush accents.

what is pickles up to now?

we’re not really morning people. by we, i mean myself and the dogs.  this morning we were woken early by my neighbors puppy clock.  my neighbors puppy clock is a pack of 11 dogs, eight of them puppies, that bark incessantly and loudly sometimes for hours at a time.

so this morning the puppy clock went off very early.  i fell back asleep but…the puppy clock was on snooze and went off every few minutes.

i should talk to him, but i’ve heard him yell at the dogs and he sounds kind of scary.

cody bear  pretends to sleep through it, but pickles and i startle.

my dogs are hell-on-paws when they’re awake, but they’ve always been very good about letting me sleep.  love bugs.

i know for a fact other neighbors have complained to the county but nothing has been done.  i won’t call county because…well, i try to be patient because i don’t want a moody neighbor “paying me back” by giving me trouble about my dogs, or….worse.

outside the door, a snorting….

something to the dogs barking saturday night.

they didn’t even care if the dogs were barking. cheeky pigs.

when i initially looked out the window they were right at my front porch tearing into a bag of bird seed.   they walked away when i opened the door.  these things are very dangerous especially when their young ar around, which you can see….there was a young one.

i live in the middle of town!  i never thought i would see these on my patio!

they finally left after i kept yelling at them and when they realized i through the seed away.

cheeky pigs.

and so the week rolls on. i’ve been SO BUSY i can barely blog!

but i guess busy is good.  last night i finally had some time to kill snapping cookie pictures of my munchkins.  didn’t have enough time to get into any of my big projects until after the night’s activity, so…snippity snap!

here we see the bear, giving me his best “i’m hungry” look…

don’t you just want to hand him a cookie?  fyi, he takes treats so gently.

here is spree giving me her classic disdain…

and here we see pickles with an obnoxiously large van gogh print, a photo of a building spire from trinity college in dublin, an ikea dresser and a pile of clean laundry…towels and socks, mostly…

so yeah, that was wednesday, post work, pre agility, pre working on projects that kept me up till 1 am.

love bugs….
