Guess Who's Coming To Dinner?

Less than two weeks until the return of the mighty vacuum cleaner! I'm kind of excited. I have piles of crumbs and too many toys lying around on the floor. I know a certain somebody who can take care of both problems.

How funny. Yes, dogs come in quite handy - sometimes.

Lordy. You are a brave, brave woman...

It's very smart to have a dog around. I think you'd end up listing it as cheap entertainment.

I've been thinking about getting/adopting a cat. Since we have received a bird feeder from Santa, we have numerous tracks to and from the bird feeder. I don't believe its the birds running in the snow either. I'm convinced it's MICE!! EEKS!

Cady wants to renegotiate her contract. What's with this no dogs on the furniture thing? The problem, however, is that she's incapable of going on strike. If she sees food on the floor, she'll go right ahead with her vacuuming job whether or not she has a new contract.

I'm pretty sure a kennel wouldn't let her on a couch either... and would have a whole heck of a lot less in the way of dinner leftovers... so the choice is hers...

That picture really is a gem!

I must tell you, our little dog wasn't allowed on the sofa at my parents' house when they watched her at Christmas time.

When she got home, it took her serveral days before she decided to test that rule here again and she jumped back up on our sofa...

We considered making the no sofa sitting for the dog permanent but, we caved in and let the little stinker back up when she got brave enough to give it a try.

Happy weekend!

Cady isn't that shy. Whenever we bring her back from Susan's, she runs into the house and up on the sofa as quick as she can, announcing to one and all that this is her house and she is definitely allowed on the couch.

When did Cady coming to visit become a *good* thing? Altho I think the pup is adorable and completely lab in her doggy habits, apparently you must be coming around to all the charms and pluses of having a pup around :)
Not looking forward to the visit enough yet to actually have one live with you permanently, eh?

I believe that Susan's entire definition of "the charms and pluses of having a pup around" consists of a 99% reduction in the quantity of freely available food scraps on the floor.

My big brother, aka Patio Boater, knows me so, so well.

There's also a reduction in the number of toys scattered on the floor. It's the only time my children actually pick there toys up. The alternative is to watch them go into Cady's yawning maw.

err, that's their toys.
