what a joker….



fine! i’ll eat your damn cookies…or, self-medicating for five dollars…

hey, i don’t WANT to eat those damn girl scout cookies!

but the little kids are standing out there practicing their guerilla cookie sales techniques.  i’ve just come from a vet appointment so i’m feeling depressed and vulnerable.  i’m looking for a pick-me-up.

the box is 4 bux. i hand her a fiver.  the neighboring brownie says “would you like to donate the remaining dollar to…?”  i say sure, but i have no idea what for.  could have been brain melting girl scout research.  could have been homeless pigs in south america. i don’t know.

just keep the change. i have my cookies.  i’m going home with them.

why the need for thin mints?  after years of obsessing over cody bear’s ailments and flippantly mentioning my cheap dog, my healthy dog, pickles,   she’s been costing me about 300 bucks a week.  the dogs….are killing me.  and i’m letting them.

i’ve talked about wine and beer pairings in the past.  tonight’s pairing?

well, nothing goes better with 100 dollars worth of dog pills like a 4 dollar box of thin mints.

ahhhh. self medicating.

now, back to pickles…

she is overly enjoying her patient role.  she is capitalizing on the fact that i don’t want to lose her and hopping in the car whenever she can.  “rub my head”, “let me linger”.

“and isn’t it time for medicine? and doesn’t my pill need to be slathered in peanut butter? yes? that’s what i thought.”

meanwhile, the bear is fit as ever.  you should see him.

my one wish for all of you is that you can some day cuddle him and feel how thick and plush and luxurious his fur is.  but…be warned:  if you get to close he’ll suck you in with his gaze and next thing you know…..

you’ll be giving him money for vet bills.

that’s how he got me!

jk. i love them. just venting.

good night everyone.

no really….that’s how he got me….

cody bear and pickles here…

we’d like to apologize on behalf of our foolish mother.  you see, she has neglected this blog because her head has been in the clouds.  but she’s back.  she has relearned that nothing else matters in the world but:  nature, insects, friends, photos, and of course….us, the dogs.

her head is back in the game and she will NOT be side-tracked by work or stupid guys ever again.

again, please forgive her and her blog slacker phase.

sincerely,

us



hello…(slurp)

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….



5 minutes to spare last night

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….

innnnocent, miss pickles???? i think NOT!

cody bear is innocently running around the yard….hunting cats…..and you clearly have your jaws poised above his withers.

what do you have to say for yourself???

the bear might be getting tired of the photography.

the constant flash.  the lens in his face.  the “waaaiit….waaaaiit.”

but who cares! he’s cute and i can’t help myself!

another busy weekend.  i’m exhausted.

i think i’ll pop up my daily photo on the other blog, then hit the sack.  i do have to brush the dogs first, though. cody bear had a bath today, including a deep conditioning “fur butter” treatment.

ooooohhhh ahhhhhh.



ohhhh pickllllles, where arrrrr youuuu?

has anyone see pickles lately?

we’ve been a little “cody bear heavy” at the blog lately.  sorry about that.  he just finds himself in front of the camera more often.

saturday picky punk had her border collie meetup.  all the dogs were new, and not all of them were friendly.

she’s definitely happiest with cody bear. he’s her favorite dog.

she has turned out to be one of the most cuddly dogs i have EVER known.  she is stuck to my side at night while we sleep.  when she’s not playing, she’s moaning and burying her head in my neck.  i knew when i got her she would be a major love,  i just had no idea she would be so loved by me, cody bear AND the cat.

we’re very lucky.  did you see her tribute to elliott erwitt? i know i posted it before. sorry.  she’s just so good!
