at least you don’t have to wear a cone on YOUR head

Poor Copper!  I guess our walk last weekend left a cut or thorn in Copper’s paw and we spent some time at the Vet’s office on Friday night.  She came home with antibiotics and a peg leg.  Little Peggy Sue.

for a laugh, check out TRIPOD in action!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

After her check-up today, she is the proud owner of her very own party hat / lampshade / funnel / giant popped collar / shovel for food.  What a goof.  She doesn’t seem to mind a bit when she scrapes the back of my legs with that plastic.  How RUDE.  I was laughing at her behind her back though, hmmm…wouldn’t you?

maybe I’m just easily amused but I think a little dog with a cone on is pretty hilarious.

Today:  Rocked a full day at school complete with a 30 minute righteous outdoor lunch picnic complements of my sweet as honey husband.  Dan’s Kitchen catered some mac and cheese, oranges, tangerine sparkling water and a few squares of chocolate.  Nice touch.  We gave those dogs a walk (including peg leg) and then I was on my way again.  After school, we laughed at our little invalid and her party hat.  We also got our team on and stained the deck.  We spent the next hour recovering from the fumes, bleck.   Deck party coming SOON!

And these two, well…they put in a hard day’s work, too.

must be rufff

    Hey, you forgot to mention that when we were staining the deck, I tipped the roller pan and started to spill a little bit of stain. And you, seeing this made slurpee sounds instead of using words.


    I’m not sure I’ll recognize the sound effect for a dump truck cutting into our lane on the highway, so concentrate on using words–OK : )
