After a computer villain launched a cyber plot to consume all my time yesterday in trying to get my guest post on the Craftie Ladies of Romance blog to render properly, I decided I’d had enough of villains for one week!
It’s Fun Friday. Time to smile!
One thing that makes me smile every time I witness it is…
When we leave the house, we crate our eat-everything-in-sight pup, Bella. We always supply her with all her favorite toys and a chew bone.
What’s hilarious is that as soon as we let her out of the crate, she carries her toys one by one to the living room–far from view of that crate.
She’s a true marine. No toy shall be left behind!
Your turn: What made you smile this week?
Funny pup. You should get that on video and win $10,000.
I am hereby presenting you with the Versatile Blogger award. Stop by my site and check it out.
Wouldn’t that be nice?! I’d be able to replace all the stuff she’s chewed. LOL
Thanks for the award. You’re so sweet.
Well, I’m not really sure if I should be laughing or crying but my dog Simba has taken to opening the mail…well some of it anyway…and then hiding it in special places. He mostly leaves the bills alone (thanks Simba) but recently my friend sent me a birthday card. I found it last night — open and underneath my pillow!!!! When I say open I mean shredded. Now my friend has a cat so that might have something to do with it. But under the pillow? What’s up with that?
Definitely my daughter’s sobbing last night. I’ve never experienced anything so precious given my fear that we’d lost her.
Kav, your Simba is quite the character. Hope there wasn’t a nice cheque in that card! 🙂
Eileen, so happy Cassandra is okay. Isn’t it interesting that how we feel about our daughter’s tears is so relative?
For those who want to know why her daughter’s crying made her happy, read the story at http://eileenastels.blogspot.com/2011/10/not-twelve-hours-ago.html
That is funny!
My smile is also dog related.
Hubby and I always take the dogs out for a walk together. Lately, we’ve been taking them to a main/central park in our area. Well, I walk the retired grey hound and hubby walks the border collie. Now if you are a greyhound owner, you know that you can never let them off of the leash period. They are trained sight hounds and would run after a piece of paper blowing in the wind.
Hubby and I passed the Babe Ruth fields at the park. They’re enclosed by fences. I opened the gate and let Pickles off of her lease. Rarely do we get a glimpse of her old running life. She ran circles around me as I stood on second base. I crack up to see just how fast she can go. She made me smile! Greyhounds are the second fastest land animal. 0 -45 mph in 5 seconds.
I’ll try to get a video of her.
Loree, I didn’t know that about greyhounds. I can just picture her excitement. It’s great that you have a huge fenced field where you can let her run free.
Don’t have dogs or cats, but I have been amazed this week…with cooler weather in GA….at the squirrels working so hard running back and forth, hiding pecans! We’ve been here in country 3 yrs. and have never seen them so busy!! Is that a sign of COLD winter ahead?!!!
Brrr, Jackie, let’s hope not, because if it’s going to be cold in Georgia, it’ll be downright frigid up here in Canada!
My smile of the week came yesterday when I was able to take my stiff new shoes off my aching blistered feet and relax after my sisters wedding. There’s nothing like it after a stress filled week of work.
Imogen, a wedding!!! What fun. Were you in the bridal party?
Yes, I was one of the five bridesmaids…as well as making the wedding cake, organising the music, singing the music, and battling with a giant headache for the past week. Apart from all that, it was a great wedding.
Oh, wow, Imogen. You are certainly multi-talented! I hope your sister appreciates all your hard work!!! Or will after her head comes down from the clouds. 🙂
And praying you have a headache free week now that it’s all done. 🙂
