It’s time to let you in on a little secret. I’m not entirely convinced that Tavish is a dog.
That’s right. I’ve long suspected that he’s actually a Mogwai. (For those of you who are not as nerdy and/or obsessed with pop culture – particularly of the 80s variety – as I am, a Mogwai is an adorable little thing that turns into a Gremlin if you aren’t careful.) Continue reading →
On Saturday, a friend and I decided to check out a local antiques fair. I wound up coming home with a few items, but my favorite just so happens to have a puppy theme.
Have you ever heard of push button puppets? Essentially, they are jointed and held together by a string. When you push on the base, they dance! I used to play with them when I was a kid, and I was thrilled to find some for sale.
Meet the menagerie…
Once I saw them, I knew that they had to be mine. Check out one of them, henceforth known as Push Button Puppy, in action:
I mean, come on. Awesome. Anyone else remember these guys?
The title of this post was almost “you say ci-cay-da, I say Secada.”
Anyway, on to more pressing matters. It’s cicada season in parts of Virginia. Thus, if you live in the area or will be visiting, you may want to be on the lookout for these noisy insects. The season is just getting started, but before long they’ll be everywhere. Seriously… everywhere. In fact, to mutilate a classic song: ”If you’re going to be at BlogPaws, you just might find a cicada in your hair.” If that happens, try not to panic. It’ll be okay. Continue reading →
Apparently, dogs do not come standard with a snooze button installed. I’m not even sure if that’s an available option in the upgrade package. In any event, if you know how to install an after-market snooze button on my dogs, you might be my hero. I tried to install my own. However, as you can see, the results were not encouraging:
My husband asked why I didn’t just Photoshop the post-it onto Bella’s head… I’m sure Bella would like to ask the same question.
Do your dogs kiss each other? I ask, because apparently mine do.
Well, one of them does. The other one just looks puzzled.
I shall keeeessss you!
I’ve read that this licking behavior might be a sign of affection. I hope that’s the case, because that’s a pretty nice idea.
On the other hand, Tavish licks everything that moves, so maybe Bella just ends up in the right place at the right time. On the other other hand, Bella licks everything too, but she doesn’t usually lick Tavish. How do your dogs show affection?
Today’s mischief is all mine, not the dog’s… I confess that I’m far behind in sharing my monthly post roundups. Today, I’m bringing you the best from September… these posts are guaranteed to put a smile on your face: Continue reading →
