Doggone It

To update my previous post:
My son's roommate, Jude left yesterday and returned to college. We hated to see them leave, but summer school starts really soon so they needed to get back. Jude was a lot of fun and a laugh a minute, but he was just a bit restless here. I think he likes hanging with the younger crowd and the excitement of a big city.

And to answer Twinville's comment about our "good healthy, home cooked meals being a nice improvement over those college kibbles". . . . well, this is what Jude liked to eat while he was staying here in the country--this step in our den, among other items made of wood. I'm not sure what that says about my cooking. Maybe he's vegetarian.

Oh yes, I know the scene well. The chihuahua's decided at one point that they wanted to eat our house. The started with the woodwork in the laundry room. I employed the Dog Whisperer's tactic of walking them until they were physically spent and had no energy for house eating. It left me equally spent and I took up taking naps.

He survived, but it's only because I can't be certain that it was the dog and not one of our kids that did the chewing. LOL. (I'm kidding, I think.)

At least he didn't eat 74 cents that ended up costing $2,000 in vet bills. hehe....sob, sob

At least Friendly will be more friendly...maybe?

Got to love them, but boy on times like that, ouchie. Run dog run. Kibbles and Chips is my title for that post.

Oh, Burp Cloth--I think you have me there. But it would have been so worth if you got to say, "Keep the change."

Cathy you should see my floors, okay maybe not! Let's just say they are a little (okay a lot) grooved from dog traffic.

I give you the patience of Job award, Cathy. I see we also share the love of our children and anything they bring home with indulgence. Because, it is rather indulgent to live with a dog that is chewing as if he wants you stay downstairs?
