Peppermint Ew

Humpity! Humpity! Humpity!

Hey Mommy, wanna play "Peppermint" with me?

I actually thought that I would be drawing pictures of Toby’s interest in girls by now, but this little boy still has a fondness for his toy peppermint.  People keep asking me if I have had him fixed.  Yes.  For some reason, though, he cannot seem to say no to this particular toy.  Perhaps he has a sweet tooth?

I’ve promised not to spoil his reputation with the ladies by telling about his hobby.  I just wonder….will his first girlfriend be a chocolate lab?

Happy Gotcha Day

 

Happy Gotcha Day, Toby!

Gotcha Day? Yes, the day you were adopted. I'm adopted? But I always thought I looked like Mommy.Toby’s Gotcha Day is coming up this week, and I thought we would celebrate.

It’s hard to believe he was such a tiny thing when I first met him.

It’s funny.  There are so many things I want to say about my little boy today, but as I sit down to write I am getting all choked up.  Maybe I’ll just let the pictures do the talking.

Two Cairn terriers on a cold day

Here is Geordie being angry that he had to walk on his own paws while the puppy got carried.  This was the coldest day of that particular Winter and the puppy’s first day outside.  (Maybe that’s why he loves the snow so much.)

Snowby II

 

Snowman shaped like a terrier.

Whee!  We got lucky and had more packing snow this week.  I couldn’t resist, and I built another Snowby (Snow + Toby).  Note the cinnamon swirl tummy and the heart on his chest.  It was actually a leaf that had been caught up in the snow – but how convenient!

When I was a kid, I didn’t get to build snowmen.  Now that I am old, I take great joy in them.  My boys like sharing in the activity but in more of a destructive role.  I have to keep Toby far, far away from my creations because he will tear up snow balls as fast as I can roll them.

“Aack!”

Puppy Geordie used to wait until I had the snowman assembled before he would destroy it.  I had to build snowmen with their arms in surrender posture so they were high enough that Geordie couldn’t reach them.

Toby attacks his snowmen by peeing on them.  I am pretty sure this Snowby is disgusted with us and is going to leave for the North Pole this weekend.

Amish Shoes

I can't believe I bought these shoes! Sure they are comfortable, but the are so unattractive. They are positively Amish!

Toby says, "Don't be silly, Mommy. Amish ladies wouldn't be caught dead in those shoes.

Woman cries, "Waaahhhh!!!" Little puppy says, "Sheesh, there is simply no consoling some people!"

Yes, I really did buy the “Amish” shoes.  They are about as stylish as bowling shoes, but boy are they comfy!  My approach to fashion is to pretend it is the 90’s and that clunky unattractive shoes go with everything – including dresses.

Toby has an easy solution for any shoes he doesn’t like; he chews them up.  Sadly, that is his treatment for those that he does as well.

I Think I Know the Answer

Remember this guy?  He was one of Toby’s Christmas presents, and I was trying to determine what exactly he was.

I think I’ve figured it out….he’s Pfft the Magic Dragon!

Toby gave him an “everythingectomy” and sent him back to Honahlee.

(If you know what I’m talking about, you’re oooolddd!)

I don’t think a single one of Toby’s Christmas presents survived until the first of the year.  It seems that, as with Geordie, he works out his emotional frustrations with his stuffed animals.  There was a cute little stuffed hedgehog that Geordie had for years (and treated kindly), and Toby completely eviscerated it last week.  Come on, how much stress could there be in your life when you’re a puppy?!?

And Now The Opposite

 

Thermometer showing seventy degree temperatures in early January.

From one extreme to the other!  You didn’t even need a coat to be comfortable outside.

Today made for a wonderful respite from the very cold and icy weather we have been having.  I did my best to make the boys go for a nice long walk because we are expecting below freezing temps and snow/rain tomorrow.   They were having none of that, however.  Poor Geordie has a sore paw, so he didn’t feel like walking, and Toby just wanted to be a socializing goofball.

It looks like we are going to be in the teens for the foreseeable future; that means no outdoor exercise for Mommy either.  Maybe I should just start shopping online for lazy pants right now….

The Coldest I Can Remember

 

Thermometer readsd zero.

This is how we started our morning.  I thought it was cold the day Toby arrived at 11 degrees, but we were nearly 20 degrees colder today.  I was shocked to see that by 10:00 pm, it had climbed to 30 degrees.  At night!  We haven’t seen mercury at night in weeks!

There have been some changes in dog laws in this area to restrict the amount of time your dog can be outside in these kinds of temps.  That is a great thing, but Toby has yet to get the memo.  If it were up to him, he would live outside.  He LOVES snow and can’t get enough of it.  His favorite thing is for someone to kick snow up in the air so he can leap up and try to catch it.   If the snow is too packed, he will kindly dig to loosen it so you can create a spray for him.  I have indulged His Naughtiness enough that now I am gimpy from pulled muscles.

Thanks, Snow Monster, I needed another reason for people to make fun of me.
