Did We Really Make It To Friday? . ., . and Awww Dec 4th

December 4, 2009

This has been a wild week at the office and in the household flood zone, so my posting has been pretty limited.  Holmes has his ears up and you deserve a photo to brighten your weekend.  I PROMISE I will get some photos up this evening — and Dremel nails, comb out hair (Phoebe is leaving a film of dark fur everywhere), take good dogs for a walk — Oh, wait, I only have Baddogs.  All I can say, and with the utmost sincerity, is TGIF.

I’m probably going to be late for my seminar, but after I posted the above excuse, I went downstairs to see:

Holmes removes food bowl ring

You can tell that his ears are up, BUT this is evidence that Holmes is a baddog-in-training.  I ordered a dozen non-tip, non-skid stainless steel food bowls.  They arrived yesterday and I ran them through the dishwasher (they are dishwasher safe).  A ring came off the bottom of one in the dishwasher — note to self:  call supplier.  I fed the dogs breakfast, went upstairs to check email, shower and dress.   When I went back down, here was Holmes, food bowl in its upright position — yep, it’s non-tip, non-skid alright — but he had taken off the rubber ring.  I’m in for it with this little guy.

    Penni, you are no longer alone in your flooding woes….Wednesday night it was raining hard, and water starting streaming down the wall between our garage and kitchen. Fortunately the water was going down the garage side, but still not good! The roofers think it is actually leaking in around a window, going behind the siding and draining out into the garage. Great! Looks like John and I will be giving each other siding, roofing, and window repairs for Christmas. What a fantastic gift! Looks like we are all in the same boat, pun intended!

      Shoot! I’m so sorry — I guess it’s contagious. About three weeks ago, my neighbor’s water line to her dishwasher split in the middle of the night and she woke up to a flooded lower level. So the Paul Davis Restoration Truck and the Servicemaster Pro Truck are jockeying for position in our little cul de sac. I really did not want repairs for a Christmas present — and am sure you did not either. I hope the fix at your house turns out to be relatively simple and inexpensive.

    Just keep telling yourself, “Bad dogs are more fun… bad dogs are more fun…”

    Non-skid rubber ring? Really? I figured out this dog toy when I was a puppy too! Is a “BadDog,” something like a Wild Woman? That’s what Kathy called me when I was a puppy/teenager. Oh wait…I’m still kind of a puppy/teenager now that I’m six!

    Clearly Holmes has a great future ahead!

    Okay, Shaker is my naughty food bowl dog. He’ll flip anything, and I do mean anything. So I bought this heavy clad bowl at a dog show(it weighs 5 lbs), and even Shaker the King of all Bowl Flippers can’t dump this one. So instead he takes his nose and flings the food out. Sigh!
