The Girl In The Bubble House

Because of my illness the extreme heat has been holding me hostage in my house.  Granite, not a bad place to be held captive.  I’ve got TV, Computer, Facebook, Angry Birds and the book IT that seems to be taking forever to read even though I’m on page 300, lol.

I’ve spent this time annoying the dogs…like a lot.  Now that the heatwave has snapped and it’s in the high 70’s I got outside.

Today I went to the eye doctor and had my pupils blown up for this picture, lol.    It kind of looks like I’ve had a stroke in this picture.  I assure I haven’t,  I just don’t photograph well 🙂  It’s supposed to rain until tomorrow so hopefully that will further cool things down.  For a bit there I felt like I was living on Mars…it’s hot there too, lol.


Dog Obsession

So my dogs are the funniest beings on the planet.  I know, I know, everyone thinks that.  But seriously, my dogs have thought bubbles over their heads when I look at them.

Is Suzie dreaming of a white Christmas, meditating or asleep standing up?  None of those things.  She’s actually using her Spock Mindmeld to get me to give her treats.

This is a collage of emotion.  They all read the same way.  Give me a treat.

Tara is easier to read.  She just loves being outside on the deck with her human.

Life with dogs is so much better than life with people.  Don’t get me wrong, not all people are douche bags but more than less are douche bags.

Baby Shark

Every time I’m in the recliner little Suzie hops up and wants me to do “Baby Shark” with her.  It started when I would sing the song while giving her a belly rub.  It then just progressed to a body rub all the while singing the song.  Now all I have to say is “do you want a Baby Shark”  and she jumps right up on the sofa and lays down waiting for her massage to begin.

She keeps me laughing.  That’s for sure, lol.

It’s Because They Are Cute That I Love Them

My girls are adorable, loveable and sometimes very annoying.  But how can you hate a face like this when she poops on the floor?

Hi my name is Willow and I have selective hearing 😉

Then there is the other dog…she whines a lot but is basically good.  Ssh…don’t tell her I said that!

Hi my name is Mickie...and um...what Willow said.

I love them despite the fact they are old and incontinent.  I could only hope I am so loved when I’m old and smelly too 😉

The One Where I Post About My Dogs

I have this dog that is super sweet…well only to me.  You see she suffers from “Napoleon Complex“.  She’s little and yet thinks she’s huge.  She’s not.  Mickie is also extremely territorial.  But with me she’s a little snuggle bunny who radiates far too much body heat.  Although it comes in handy during the winter.

The Schmenkenator

Mickie isn’t a biter or mean or anything…in fact she loves people.  She’s a barker though and she sounds aggressive and it turns people off.  One of may neighbors said ‘don’t worry she’ll grow out of it”.  Then asked me how old Mickie is…’She’ll be 8 in two weeks’ I responded with a smile.  “Oh, maybe not” my neighbor smiled back.

Mickie was a pet shop dog.  My guess is she came from a puppy mill of some kind and her parents were related to each other.  It’s okay though…I love her and she’s good to me.  I don’t have issues with crapping and peeing on the floor or any destructive chewing behavior and she like the other dog so all it well in our home.

Willow's cool cause she lets me dress her up 🙂

The other dog…she’s a pistol.  They say your dogs eventually take on your personality.  I can tell you this is the truth.  Willow and I are the same.  We are both loads.  Willow is so laid back she’s practically in a coma.  Everyone loves her because she’s short and fuzzy and has the sweetest disposition.  I always said I wanted a dog that didn’t require a leash.  Willow is that dog.  She waddles behind me and you can see she thinks about running after that rabbit or squirrel in the yard but then thinks…’too much work involved’.  Yeah she’s fun like that.

I love my dogs and we’ll I want the blog world to know…that I need therapy 😉

My Roommates Are Trying To Kill Me

I live with these guys…

Don’t aww cause they are cute.  They tag team me and try to trip me and thus try to kill me.  Once I woke up from a nap and Mickie (The Boston Terrier) was standing over my head.  I think she was getting ready to put a pillow over my face.  Just saying…

You’d think they’d love me because I’m the one that walks them and feeds them.  Nope they love everyone else.  Complete strangers get all their pent-up joy and what do I get…I get the “look”.   Now I know how my Mom felt.

My sister said it sounds like a doggy conspiracy.  Let just put it this way I’m sleeping with one eye open tonight.
