missing cap'n crunch

My mother-in-law worries about what I'm eating. My husband is the cook in the family and he's away for a while doing that military thing. I reassure her that I have a great recipe for cap'n crunch and milk (my cat loves that one), the dog prefers pb&j's, easy on the j.

Q. How Many Dogs Does It Take to Change A Light Bulb?

Golden Retriever:
The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our
whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid burned out bulb?

Border Collie:
Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not
up to code.

You know I can't reach that stupid lamp!

Make me.

Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark.

Oh, me, me!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can
I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I? Pleeeeeeeeeze, please, please, please!

German Shepherd:
I'll change it as soon as I lead these people from
the dark, check to make sure I haven't missed any, and make just one more perimeter patrol to see that no one has tried to take advantage of the situation.

Jack Russell Terrier:
I'll just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the
walls and furniture.

Old English Sheep Dog:
Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light

Cocker Spaniel:
Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the

Yo quiero Taco Bulb.

I see it, there it is, there it is, right there ...

It isn't moving. Who cares?

Australian Cattle Dog:
First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a
little cluster...

Toy Poodle:
I'll just blow in the Border Collie's ear and he'll do
it. By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry.

and a last minute addition the Couture Dog (aka mixed breed) Let's get Brian to do it, (thanks Connie, didn't mean to leave them off the list).

The Cat's Answer: Dogs do not change light bulbs. People change light
bulbs. So, the real question is: How long will it be before I can expect some light, some dinner, and a massage?

shelter tails

There are so many reasons to adopt a dog out of a shelter here are just three, Max, Bruce and Roxy. I met them on the beach this morning.Max is a doberman puppy extremely sweet and loveable, made extra cute 'cause he hasn't had his ears or tail docked. Bruce is a basset hound and little older. His owners couldn't keep him because of the new baby, but he found an excellent home with Anya.

Roxy is a rottie-shepard mix, another sweetie-pie, with huge paws. It was her first time at the beach and she loved it!

I've been trying to get some work done today, but apparently someone needs some attention.

Another attempt at my niece, sans monkey. I think this one is a little better.

This is my niece and her best friend. Well she's really much, much cuter than this, I'm still experimenting with my new watercolours.

illustration friday - seed

"Everyone who enjoys, thinks that the principal thing to the tree is the fruit, but in point of fact the principal thing to it is the seed. Herein lies the difference between them that create and them that enjoy." Nietzsche

Here is a little tribute to the seed packages that my grandmother used to have. I'm also trying out my new watercolours, yea.
