So, it looks like Jeff’s workplace is putting out a pet calendar, and the person who scores the cover image gets something like a million dollars or a free pancake dinner or something in between. I’ve decided that we don’t necessarily need the cover, but we do need a spot within. Will you help me [...]

I try not to whine. (Today I’m not trying very hard.)

August 17th, 2011 · 21 Comments · A Dog's Life, Don't look at my feet.

Last night at approximately 12:52, the cat freaked out, jumped onto the bed, and attacked my feet. It was a three Band-Aid attack, and it has set the mood for the morning. (If I was a mood ring wearing person, today would be something like black or red or flame throwing or whatever color symbolizes [...]

Welcome, Henry Huggins!

August 13th, 2011 · 23 Comments · A Dog's Life, Daily, Video! Video! Video!

As you know, we’ve been talking about getting a sibling for Scout. Last week, the wonderful woman who helped us adopt Scout sent this link to me. We immediately fell in love with ALL of the puppies, but were most interested in adopting either Brownie (a female) or Scout (a male). Long Story Shortened Because [...]

Some might say I’m trying to fill some sort of hole in my life…

July 28th, 2011 · 21 Comments · A Dog's Life, Crazy Cat Lady, Daily

It seems that we’re now in the home stretch of our summer vacation. This week we finalized our backpack and school supply decisions, delivered our blank t-shirts to the embroiderers, and tentatively decided to add another dog to our family. Next week the girls have College for Kids, and the week after that we’ll find [...]

She was an American Girl, Tom Petty.

July 23rd, 2011 · 17 Comments · A Dog's Life, Out on the Town, Shorties

Early last week we drove to Kansas City, where we did a little bit of this. (The girls did eventually enter the store.) You know, while I was pregnant, I swore that my daughters would not become girly girls. I also swore that they wouldn’t watch a bunch of television and that they would be [...]

How nice is it that as of now, 100% of the comments to my previous post were supportive? I really do appreciate your thoughts and opinions and funny stories. Come over to my house. I made a batch of cake balls. Let’s eat them. Really. I made a batch of cake balls. They’re purple with [...]

Sundays with Scout

June 12th, 2011 · 19 Comments · A Dog's Life, Daily

Me: So, Scout—what the heck is going on with the cone? Scout: Well, as you know, I had my ovario-hysterectomy on Friday. I was all groggy afterward, and my crate was smeared with feces! It was a terrible day! Me: I know it was! The drive home was maddening! Poopy crate on my lap. You [...]

Welcome to my migraine!

June 9th, 2011 · 30 Comments · A Dog's Life, Daily, My Aching Head!

So, here we are again. It’s Day #3 of my monthly migraine, and although I thought I was on the right track yesterday, it turns out that I was not, and that always bums me out a bit. I’m now keeping a migraine journal, and it looks a little something like this: June 7: Ouch! [...]

She has been begging us to take her to Trinidad.

June 1st, 2011 · 18 Comments · A Dog's Life, Video! Video! Video!

We’ve spent the past three weeks becoming familiar with Scout’s puppy quirks. She is an ankle biter. If I’m in the bathroom, she tends to relieve herself on the floor outside the bathroom door. She loves running full speed under the couch, and has actually ripped up a lot of the fabric beneath both couches. [...]
