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!

insert treat here…

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???

strange things are afoot at casa de cody bear.

first of all, you all know how cody bear HATES being dirty? he loves his bath, freezes at the site of a mud puddle, requires a clean doggie bed.

well….what is THIS????

with a smile on his face, cody bear has been frolicking…in the mud!

even though we know there is another storm coming tomorrow that will fill the back yard with mud, he still got a bath tonight.  i’m pleased to say he was all wags when he heard he was going to the dog wash.  and he’s been loving his new clean self.

still….the mud puppy seemed to delight in filth for the first time in his 5 plus years. sigh.

then…i came home for lunch today and somehow the laundry had found a way to spread itself allll over the bedroom floor. nothing was damaged….merely rearranged.

but the weirdest part?  at lunch i walked in and the dogs were spastic.  wagging and spinning.  cuddling me like i was a celebrity.

now, i don’t let them in the back yard just like that, you know.  they know that when i go to open the door to the yard, they sit and wait until they’re ok’ed: first cody bear, then pickles.  i give cb the go ahead and he tears out of there like a side of beef is waiting.  i turn to pickles and . . . as sassy as you please….miss picky punk BARKS at ME!  “what?”  followed by a series of impatient and entitled barks follow.


i just shut the door.  where did THAT come from miss sassy pants?  “don’t you get lippy you little mini muffin!”

all seems to be normal now.  the dogs are resting.  i’ll get up to go to bed soon and they will follow me in and stare at the bed or curl up on a doggie mat.

we’ll see what they have in store tomorrow!

maybe cody bear will be scared of mud again….

a very distinguished gentleman, naturally

you may have noticed a certain bear is getting ….um…greyish.

but it doesn’t seem to bother him.  he’s not a very vain cody bear.  plus, he still acts like a playful, young dog.  also, i still think he gets cuter every day!

now here he is in may of 06:

a pretty bear with a black muzzle.

he certainly isn’t slowing down any, just becoming more dashing.

like when pickles has a bad day…

and so another weekend comes to an end.

the dogs, especially pickles, are tired.

her hightlights .  . . well, lowlights, actually:

she was taunted by the feral cats, peed on by a lab mix, ran into a beam, taunted by feral cats again, and her kibble bin is close to empty.  and the worst part of it….she had to have a BATH!

so, she’s tired now.  but she’s good because, as pickles always says, “it’s nothing a couple treats can’t help.”

crap….i really don’t want to go back to work tomorrow!


sunday is spa day, apparently

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.
