We got the dogs this awesome heated bed. That was the best purchase EVER. They have all set their daily goals on WHO gets to be on the bed. Kind of a mattress "king of the mountain" going on. Everyone needs goals. Poor Crackers just tries to get NEAR the bed. As we have found, 3 border collies, stacked up like some kind of messed up Jenga game, can fit. And, oddly enough...there is normally a JRT in the center of the pile...Crackers loves his heated bed. When he can use it.Loretta loves that bed even more...it keeps Crackers from staring at me all day. It's annoying and I am happy it has stopped.GET OFF THE DAMN BED GIRLS...oh...and also...if your husband comes home talking about how he got some AWESOME Christmas presents for the "twins"...and you realize he is talking about the two litter mates you kept...there is a problem. Just sayin'. Maybe we do need to have a ki....WTF...nevermind...tiny moment of insanity there... What if we look all cute and stuff?? NO. And they sleep more...although these two just look like they have been smoking somethin' REAL GOOD. But rest assured, my home is a drug free zone. They must have been doing that out in the barn. Those sheep are a bunch of tokers... Ace! Not cowering...barely awake and hasn't realized I had the camera focused on him. WIN. Still being cute!!! GET OFF THE F***ING BED!
And then the reality of my situation sets in...they start staring...all of them... Zip...give me the damn pillow (wonder where her daughters got the "screaming is still attention" thought? Oh yes...THE QUEEN)...you have a pillow we let you carry around remember?
Then...if you don't listen to this (or notice it I guess...stares don't speak....do they?) she will get the Cuz...which, has been put on this earth for the SOLE PURPOSE of annoying the living crap out of me. Repetitive noises REALLY IRRITATE LORETTA...and I think the Cuz has THE WORST squeak ever. It is like a cross between killing a baby bunny and putting a chainsaw to a piece of sheet metal... And with the Cuz, comes Even's "crazy eyes"...ya know...when the brain is out of oxygen, and the 2 brain cells left have decided to take a day off...
So what do you do with a Steven who has completely gone off her rocker?
PLAY WITH KITTIES!!!!! That's right! Vittles is also going completely insane, and between clawing the woodwork in my garage, eating kitty toys and barfing them up later all over the floor, and hanging from the shelving in the garage, she is about as insane as Steven. So lets get READY TO RUMBLE!!!
***NO KITTIES WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THESE PHOTOS*** Even LOVES her kitty... See?? HUGS!!! And a bitch slap! Awwwww!!! Even can be a bit much for Vittles at times...but Vittles was insane today...I am sure Even will have some bite wounds from this encounter, but she LOVES HER KITTY! Kisses!! Sort of...right? And look how she holds Vittles! OH so gently...right? And they look so lovingly into each others eyes :)I mean...how can you NOT see the love here? See!?!? Even likes to give Vittles kisses on her head! HOW SWEET IS THAT!?!?And Vittles just wants to touch Even, to be close to her...awwwwUm...this one might need a bit of a "rating" so the kiddies don't look at it...Are you 18? Awww...MORE HUGS!!!! They even love to dance together!!!Dale a tu cuerpo alegria Macarena. Que to cuerp es pa' darle alegria y cosa buena. Dale a t cuepo alegria Macarena.
AAAhAA! Seriously...they love each other... Sure Vittles has to put up with getting squashed a bit...but kitties bounce back ya know.
And yes...she gets a bit "moist" (shudder...I hate that word....ewwww)...but that is just the labor of love Vittles is willing to do for Even. 'cause they are bestest friends... It's a beautiful thing :)Especially after the rumble...Even is tired :)
And...um...unless the sock monkeys are having unprotected sex while I am sleeping at night...Andy is going a bit overboard with the hunt for sock monkeys... For those that have emailed me, they are in the CHRISTMAS section, not the pet section, I think they are supposed to be kids toys...but whatever. Kids don't need sock monkeys anyway. If you are in the Little Falls/Brainerd area...I think Andy bought them all...sorry.
Christmas cards are OUT...if you want a picture of our doggies...let me know. I personally LOVE my dogs...but don't expect others to feel the same emotional connection to them. BUT...if you do, send me an email and I would be more than happy to send you a pic of our dogs!
Now...if you will excuse me, I will be in the house...for the next...oh...6 months...
