They're big girls now – full-fledged dogs, er, bitches.
Well, not Bonnie.
Bonnie is the devil.
This used to be a bed of iris.
There were 4 different colors.
They were all beautiful.
They were just getting ready to bloom.
First, Bonnie ate all she could, then came in the house and threw it all up at my … Continue reading.....
'The Devil made me do it.'
Or so Bonnie likes to tell me.
She has certainly had a bit of the devil in her lately.
Since catching the bunny, almost 2 weeks ago, she has been taking her new role as Bunny Slayer very seriously.
What that involves, mostly, is running off as fast as she can … Continue reading.....
The puppies' lives have returned to normal.
First Bonnie was spayed, followed by 10 days of strictly enforced no-rough-play-time.

They are, like all of their ilk, going back 5 generations, self-cleaning dogs.
Which means they come into the house caked in mud and lay down for a nap.
Sometime later, nap over, they get up, all clean…. leaving behind a pile of dirt.
Sedi, … Continue reading.....
I learned something this week.
Not much, mind you, but something.
When we lost Emma on Monday I was surprised at how incredibly painful it was.
I felt as if someone was actually tearing my heart in half.

Very, very sad.
But I didn't expect pain.
And, being me, naturally I had to … Continue reading.....
Significant progress was made this week without significant cursing.
He was plumbing.
He hates plumbing.
Apparently he decided he only wanted to do things once this time…..Because it all worked the first time.

So, now we are on to bigger things.
Like building the surround for the bathtub – … Continue reading.....
