Kick the Snow!

Come on, mom, kick the snow!

Here is Toby staring at my boots telling me to start the game.

This has got to be Toby’s favorite game in the whole world. Every time it snows, we play “Kick the Snow’ for hours. Look at those teeth! Look at those claws! This boy is dead set on killing himself some snow.

My neighbor saw us playing and said of Toby, “He’s bat-shit crazy, isn’t he?”. Short answer: yes.

Dressed for Snow

Hey mom, we wanna go outside! Hold on. It's cold out. I need to get dressed first.
Ha ha! Look, it's Ralphie's little brother! No wait, it's Kenny from South Park!
Maybe we should have quit while we were ahead.

Yeah, it’s best not to piss off the mama.

Bear Paw Quilt

This rustic Bear Paw Quilt will keep you warm on cold winter nights. Bear Paw Quilt would fit nicely at the cabin by the lake or thrown over the couch. The pattern is geometric, and the colors are bold yet earthy. The overall effect is of paw prints in snow. On sunny days, the colors look so inviting it is hard not to lie down on them and take a nap.

Bear Paw Quilt is available from my shop.

The New Restaurant

It is a dark time. Across the state, businesses have been shut down for want of customers. So many restaurants have closed that underground, speakeasy-style eateries have popped up away from the watchful eyes of health department.

The boys’ beloved Sniff City has become….(Dun…dun…duhhhhn)… Hellmont.

My idea is better. No MINE is! Mom!!
Which of us has the best name for our new restaurant?
My idea's the best. It's the Diarrhea Trattoria!
Wait, does this place serve or cause diarrhea? Your choice! Oh dear, are those raisins and Tootsie Rolls on the bar? Well, at one time...
Forget about him. It's my idea that's the best.
It's the Copra...CopraphaGIa! The hottest spot for diarrhea! At the Copra,CopraphaGIa..Poopin' and noshin' are always in fahshion...Fashion? Yes, dahling...
Do you really think anyone will want to eat here? How is your dessert menu? Do you serve Poopsicles or Fudge Dragons? I'd like a meal to help me clear a room. I need assistance with my abstract expressionism.

Not that dogs eat poo or anything…

Well, only if it’s there.

Tumbleweeds

Ew! For heaven't sake woman, have some shame! What? I've been in quarantine almost a year. Nobody sees me.
So we're not "somebody"? For the purposes of this argument, no.
Why is it acceptable that you guys are all furry and not me? 'Cause we're adorable.
Two Cairn terriers pant in the sun.

See? I told you we were adorable!

Sharing the Blame

Blue Puppy gets his paw caught as he flees from raiding the trash can.

It used to be that Blue Puppy was the one to share Toby’s misadventures.

Then today I found this…

…next to these two.

It looks like I am going to have to keep an eye on the whole toy box now.

It wasn’t me. Honest.

Oh, I forgot. The boys and I had an anniversary last week. On the 6th, my boys reached the milestone of hiding away in the museum for a whole year! In that time, no one has been able to see them or buy them. Gosh, what a great year it’s been.

If you would like to see what my two have been up to by themselves with no supervision, pick up a copy of Dream Our World. Inside, the boys visit the museum of their dreams and view the world of art from a canine perspective.

Latin

Mommy has been teaching me stuff. She said that in Latin, we are called Puppius Doggus Atthey oesn'tday oundsay ightray.

When I was in school, the students approached administration and asked for Latin courses. The faculty said “No”. This is what happens when you don’t teach young people Latin.

Mommy also refers to me as Stinkius Buggus. I don’t get no respect.

Hi, my name is Star. Your name is Toaster.
