Insanity Avoidance Kitty 4

Insanity Avoidance Kitty 4

Oops.  It didn’t work.  I’m insane.

******************************************************

On Tuesday, Toby will have his first wellness exam/vaccination day under new business rules.  I am a little bit disappointed because I won’t get to see how he behaves around new dogs.  I am secretly happy, though, because I won’t have to see his accusing stares as he has his nails clipped and gets jabbed by nasty needles.

Don't worry, Mom. I'll help.

Jabbed by what, you say?

Buckeyes

What? Are you guys planning to go to Ohio State when you grow up? Go Buckeyes!

This day was so perfect! Nothing could possibly spoil it.

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

Just wait till you see what I left for you in your shoe.

Are you stuck at home for the next two weeks?  Possibly with small  children who need to be both entertained and educated?  Then get yourself a copy of Dream Our World Dream Our World will allow you to introduce your children to something called “books” that were made from trees in the old days.

Inside, Bitey and Toby visit a museum (all the real ones are closed, by the way) and view the world of art from a canine perspective.  They also get to explore the museum without any supervision.  Do they act like little gentlemen or naughty puppies?  Hmmm, I wonder…

Dream Our World is available from Amazon.

 

 

 

Hockey

Puppy dressed as ferocious hockey player.

Wow, you're pretty good at blocking thos tennis balls. When I grow up, I want to bMario Lemieux!

Bu Mario Lemieux isn't a goalie. Then I wanna be Wayne Gretzky!

Gretzky isn't a goalie either. Geez, where have you been learning about hockey? Mommy!!

I have never had a pup that I could teach to play Fetch.  I have tried over and over using instructions in dog-training guides to no avail.  The closest I have come is Toby who likes to catch the balls and line them up in front of himself.

It’s a good thing Mommy enjoys all that lower back pain from picking up hundreds of tennis balls a day.  Oh wait, no I don’t.  Then I guess it is a good thing I love my puppy.

****************************

Today I am on Day 25 of my eye exercises.  I feel like the lady in the Peleton commercial who posts her exercise routine in order to hold herself accountable.  So far, I am still liking what I am doing!  This past week I have been able to see a few things that I haven’t in a very long time.  I was able to read house numbers from more than a yard (house-yard, not 3 feet) away.  I could also read a street sign from at least 20′ away.  I am not able to hold focus for long, but even that is building.  A friend asked if I would like to go to my eye doctor some day and show off that I don’t need glasses anymore.  Not really.  What I would like to do is go to the DMV and have the restriction removed from my license.  Ha!  Take that, state government.

*********************************

This week I also mailed off a copy of Dream Our World to another museum, hoping that they may be interested in selling it in their gift shop.  Toby has promised to keep his paws crossed that the manager likes  his work.

How could they  not like it?  I’m adorable.

By the way, is anyone else having trouble with WordPress?  I am having problems with the photo uploader and viewing previews of my posts.  Even viewing others’ posts is hit or miss.  It takes all the fun out of coming here to post.

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?

My Insanity Avoidance Cat

Pencil sketch of hairless cat.

So far this month, I have had two businesses screw up orders/renewals which have resulted in my credit card statement being so huge that not only I want to throw up but it wants to throw up as well.  So far the attitude of each business has been to pretend not to understand what I am complaining about when I contact them.  I have terrible social anxiety, and I find it difficult enough to do this kind of work let alone have to do it over and over and over.

To try to keep myself away from my non-Japanese toilet thanks to anxiety stomach cramps, I decided to draw a kitty.  An oddly-colored, hairless kitty.  It may be one of the more unusual pieces I have done, but it did the trick of temporarily taking my mind off my woes.

Don't worry, Mom. I'll help.

These financial issues aren’t going to cut into my biscuit budget, are they? 

Sorry buddy, they just might.

Oh yes, and on top of screwing up my billing, my web hosting company somehow managed to disconnected my domain from my site.  If you were trying to reach me and couldn’t, you should be able to now.  Grrrr…..
