oh my GOD a STICK!

should i be sad that there is nothing in this world that gets me as excited as my dogs get when they see a random 14 inch piece of tree branch?

i mean….i love a good meal with friends, an outrageous sale price is nice, a pint of guinness always hits the spot, but NOTHING gives me the wide opened eyed joyous “holy shit” look on my face that the dogs get with a stick or a piece of beef or a new squeaky.

check out pickles….

also, they’ve got the “no worry” thing down.  mommy foots the vet bill, food bill, pharmacy bill…which is high.  at the end of october vet bills will be more than….$1600/month.

so keep smiling pickles. keep grabbin’ those sticks cody bear.  just please….stop eating dangerous shit and chasing things that will bite you.  that’s all i ask. that and for cuddling and some laughs each day.

and thanks.

let me just preface this by saying, no dogs were given alcohol while these events took place. or ever, actually.

ok!  it was tuesday night and pickles decided to go to the bar with some of her friends from border collie meetup!  so we went to pickles’ favorite local brewery.  all 6 of us packed into rehmy’s landrover and headed to the bar to freeze on the patio!

you know pickles.  here is ashleigh…

here is frank….checking out the menu and considering my mocha java stout…

the dogs did well, but as we usually do, after a couple beers we get a little silly and take turns making our dogs do tricks at the bar.  they love it because they love treats and attention.

(last time we went out rehmy gave pickles have a sonoran hot dog.  that is NEVER happening again. what a mess.)

we got really cold and decided to put the rovers back in the rover and head home.  a fun time was had by all!

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…?

….chewing…

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….

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.
