Joe The Terrible

Joe, my father's dog, arrived for the holidays a couple of weeks ago. He has a rather menacing look about him. He's quite gentle but... He won't stop humping my girls: although he's supposedly fixed. Plus, he is so long legged that he gets things off the counter with ease, for example a roast I left out to thaw and a bag of cookies.
Tempers often flair when family gathers for the holidays.

However, Lucy remains nonplussed by all the goings on. Really, Joe is just a tad intimidated by Lucy. I mean she is the queen of the house.

Doggy Doldrums

The warm weather is back. My girls dislike the heat and humidity as much as I do. It seems to zap our energy. Cooler weather is on the way sources say, even if it's just for a couple of days. We'll take it.

They Like A Good Bone

My girls love beef ribs. Now there are lots of barbeque establishments all over Houston but few offer beef ribs. I don't really care for any type of rib, barbeque or otherwise, so this is mostly for their enjoyment. Sable is the most excited. Not sure if it's the smell of the sauce or the fat and meat that I leave behind that she enjoys more.
Lucy is more lady like and will just lick her lips at first glance.

Soon they are down to the marrow and the excitement has lessoned.

All I hear is the steady gnawing of the bone which is kind of relaxing really. Oh and the vet always compliments them on how clean their teeth look. Another benefit of this splurge on their behalf.

Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed?

Actually, I don't let my girls sleep with me that often. Only on the coldest of nights do they have that luxury which in southeast Texas isn't very often. I think I'm entitled to one dust and hair free zone in my home. Don't you think? But Sable does like to lay on the bed and watch me choose my clothes and get dressed. Who wouldn't? lol They don't really pout or whine when I close the gate behind me down the hall and go to bed. But with long work days, it seems that is the only way I can have more time with them if I let them sleep with me.
Lucy can leave the bed and I never know it during a good nights sleep. But Sable, on the other hand, is a different story. I wake up with her looking down at me which creeps me out to be honest. She's constantly scooting a little closer to me which actually feels pretty good to my back on a cold night. Or if she gets hungry, she is not beyond head butting me and rolling me out of bed. Who gets the munches in the middle of the night? I don't know who she takes that after????
