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!

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???

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.

“fiiive days to work….one whole day to play, come on every body where your roller skates today. its saturday. saturday saturday…ee-ay-ee-ya-ee-yaaay”  – de la soul.

so yes, in fact, it was saturday.  and it was jam-packed with mingle-y goodness!

dog baths at the self serve dog wash, one at a time. lunch at the burger shot: tasty garden burger!  dinner at the pizza and salad joint with visiting friends, then a “fringe: season one” viewing at d’s.  the dogs were walked, movies were viewed, and three loads of laundry were done. one load of dishes.

and the dog daily photo blog was updated.

cody bear?  well, he’s ready for bed.

and please check out the daily dog photo.  it’s pickles and our tribute to master dog photographer, elliott erwitt!!!!
