With Malice Aforethought

OK, I think I got it rihgt this year. It's a Friday in Lent, and I'm making fish.

Little dog asks: Don't those baked beans have meat in them?

Crap. Where are you going? To getmy hand basket.

…only this year, I did it on purpose!  I had a chicken sandwich for lunch on a Friday.  Mwahaha.

At least I know what kind of clothes to pack for my trip.

If you haven’t had  chance yet, you can still pick up a copy of Dream Our World.  Inside, Bitey and Toby tour the Museum of the Imagination and view the world of art from a canine perspective.  I had a fun time recreating famous works of art looking through my boys’ eyes.  The museum itself is made of different features from  our neighborhood.

Cover of the book Dream Our WorldThis  a really cute book and would make a great introduction to art for any little ones in your life.  (And it might keep the kids busy if they are home from school due to the virus.)

Toy of the Gods

For our friends who are unfamiliar with the joys of toilet paper:

Roll of toilet paper

Mommy forgot to shut

The bathroom door

Where the roll of TP

Hangs so close to the floor.

 

Sketch of dog wrapped in toilet paper.When from over my shoulder

Comes a loud, angry roar,

“Don’t touch that, you beast!

I don’t have any more!”

Sketch of woman running

So I snatch up the end

And away I do soar..

So pleased with my game,

I am thrilled to the core!

 

TP Mummy - Copy (2)

Leaping and bounding

And twisting with glee

I watch as my human

Can’t catch up with me.

I roll till I’m wrapped

like an ancient mummy.

It’s a gift from the gods

This roll of TP!

TP No

Everyone’s a Critic

 

Suspicious shredder with ears and a tail handle.

Little Cairn Terrier chews a piece of paper.

Dog-chewed sketch paper

sketch of cartoon puppies

People laugh at me for leaving things in my trash can because I know Toby is going to climb in and make a mess.  The problem is that if I don’t leave anything in there, he will go after something I care about.  Last night he decided that my trash can wasn’t interesting enough and chewed up a sketch book.

Toby innocently stands there, wondering what mommy is looking at.

OK, so maybe I chewed up some papers , but I definitely wouldn’t put a baby sister in a box.

Spinning…Spinning…

Sadly another “Based on actual events” post….

Diana Prince does a transformation spin to become Wonder Woman.Diana Prince does a quick transformation spin to become Wonder Woman.

Spin!  Spin!  Spin!Oh my gosh Toby, what were you doing, standing on a turntable? Pretending to be a tonado?!?

Whee! I'm Wonder Woman!

I have never seen anything like this in al the years I have been taking care of pups.   Normally the process is to spin, then poo.  Not Toby.  He decided to combine the two into a new art form.  A really messy, far-flung art form.  Thanks, Toby.  All that poo-hunting out in the snow was great for my cold.

Toby’s Valentine’s Day Surprise

A Valentine's Day heart shaped box of colcolate rests next to a bottle of wine and a single red rose.

 

Toby, do you have something you want to tell me? No.

Toby sends a Happy Valentine’s Day wish to all those star-crossed lovers out there.  Don’t let what others say discourage you.  Follow your heart (no matter what the consequences)!

When push comes to shove,

you’ve gotta do what you love

even if it’s not a good idea! 

…to borrow a line from Futurama.

(A refresher on Toby’s ill-fated romance.)

Sleeping Angels

Toby sleeping next to Mommy's desk.

Last night I found Toby hidden in a little corner next to my desk.  I thought it was funny to see him sleeping with his head on my hard, wooden sewing basket and his butt pressed against a soft, comfortable pillow.  I grabbed my camera and snapped a picture before he could wake up.  I didn’t realize until this evening when I went to edit it that he looked exactly like the picture of sleeping Geordie on the pillow.  Aw, my little angel boys!

I Didn’t See It Coming

Unfortunately based on a true story:

Guess what? It snowed!

Why don't you guys have some breakfast before we go out? Puppy: No, I'm too excited to eat.

Not today, thank you/

Whee!

Puppy makes snow angels.

Puppy dives into fresh snow.

Puppy does the backstroke in fresh snow.

Puppy digs in fresh snow.

Hello...what's this? They grew back?

Here, let me help you get some of those s ow balls off of you.

Maybe you shouldn't have rubbed my tummy when I am so excited.

I had another surprise hit me that I didn’t see coming.  (Ha ha)   I  developed a reaction to the plastic on my eyeglass frames.  It has become so painful that I have stopped wearing them.  The catch is that my vision is something like 20/1000 without them.

Before I begin a serious search for hypo-allergenic frames, I am starting an eye exercise program that is supposed to improve or even fix a person’s vision. It would be great if it worked so I didn’t need glasses anymore.

In the meantime, don’t worry if Bitey Dog seems a bit fuzzy or my typing is worse than usual.  It is just me getting used to my natural eyes.

Does this mean you can’t see me getting into trouble now?
