or it’s a damned good thing they’re so cute

Yesterday was brought home again the problem with empty belly syndrome. Zuzu around 10 pm, and Gracie a little after midnight. When it dawned on me that maybe they didn’t get their din dins.

Not that they’re underweight. Zuzu La Gorda weighs in at maybe 6 pounds over last year and Gracie Ms Skinny Mynx at maybe 3 more. Which in a dog about 40 pounds is not chicken feed. But then DH (who took them this year) says Zuzu was a wiggle meister on the scale and her numbers might be off.

Gracie got a serious trimming (with scissors, she won’t put up with the clippers) over the weekend. I even had to get all the long fur off her ears. It was a little scary, but needed as there was a fist sized mat in there.

And you can’t even see it here. Her little ears are so cute…

We’re also anticipating mud season. These two bring in more dirt dust than any dog I’ve ever known.

Yes. I ordered blocking wires! I think I might be ready to block that maple wing shawl this weekend. Or the one after.

Saw this at the Chinese restaurant in Hallowell last week…

Window screening, folded into a square, screwed into an old light fixture… With a flourescent bulb!

    Interesting light fixture… Huh. To keep the bugs away from the light in a most inelegant fashion?
