Pet owners probably know the pain of this: trimming your dog's toes. Now, this isn't limited to dogs. When we had canaries we had to catch them and trim their little toesies, and I had to with my cat. But Tundra, he's CONVINCED that the clippers are going to take his toes off. This is … Continue reading I’m Not Going to Chop Them Off!
Out into the wild blue yonder. Not me though. My parents' husky, Jo. This goofball sitting next to our Tundra: Jo is a cat hunter. My dad was trying to put him out, and there was a cat on the porch, and Jo barreled through the door and took off menacing the cat. Dad goes after … Continue reading Off Into the Wild Blue Yonder
It snowed here! It has actually snowed twice, but the first time it melted off before Tundra could get his walk, and he was The Pouty Puppy. The second time it snowed, it was in the evening, and we put him out on the lead. He nosed around the yard and then came up onto … Continue reading Tundra Loves the Snow!
Happy belated Halloween! We didn't think to buy any costume parts in advance since I hadn't felt like dressing up. But then, day of, I DEFINITELY felt like dressing up. So here's what I could piece together using construction paper and basic make up supplies - most of it eyeliner. We had ~150 kids/parents this … Continue reading Construction Paper and Eyeliner
Tundra was born in the fall of 2010, so we got to pick a birthday for him. We chose 10/10/2010 because we thought it was neat, and it's been a tradition to always bring him to the Kickapoo Valley Reserve for a hike for his birthday. It was cold and drizzly Sunday, but off we … Continue reading Happy Birthday Tundra!
So I had an ex that I lived with for a while, and he had this amazing jean quilt his grandmother made for him. I adored. The relationship ended, and he, of course, kept the quilt. I wanted one SO BADLY. I saved my jeans for close to ten years, always meaning to make a … Continue reading Brand New Jean Quilt!
This photo is a place holder from last year because, who's the fool who forgot a camera this year? Yeah, that would be me. Tundra had a ton of fun, and my husband walked around following him to keep him out of trouble. He was well behaved though! Tundra can't swim though, so he … Continue reading Puppy Pool Paddle 2019
I've discovered in shell salted peanuts, and I'm loving them. I had never actually had them before, but we had them one night at my in-laws so I bought a bog. Now, Tundra ADORES peanuts and peanut butter and peanut flavored anything. So I tossed him a few (shelled) peanuts. They bounced off his face, … Continue reading Peanuts
For the first time this year, our neighborhood has been setting off fireworks, and this has been going off for most of two weeks. Tundra hates them. He whines and paces and tips over every water dish in the house. Repeatedly. Then he whines because he's thirsty, and if you fill the dish again he'll … Continue reading The Floof Hates Fireworks
We went to a relative's high school graduation party, and it seems like there were parties EVERYWHERE. Which makes me a bit nostalgic for the summer after High School Graduation where I was finally DONE with Day Care (I mean High School) and eagerly looking forward to college. I had no real responsibilities, and everything … Continue reading Just a Little Bit of Nostalgia
