bone and kiwi

bassety updates:

In a little over 48 hours Phrace and Nobel Spot will be in the 98105!

Yesterday I hid all my precious stuffie/squeakies way up high so that not even Kubrin can get them. My sissie is hard on stuffies and I am in love with my squeakies from my grandmere.

TH mom promises that Phracey and I get to work on scaring the mean cats of the neighborhood.

Mama S. will get a nice steak dinner, some down time and everyone is going to come over to meet everyone! Is that cool or what?

Ficus, our ficus, is going into hiding as Nobel Spot is having a hard time distinguishing between indoor and outdoor trees.

Nmom is leaving (harumph) for a weekend of female bonding and camping and walking 37 miles. What a nut.

I'll be out of touch for a while after that, Mama S is taking me to Oxboro for the next six weeks. Not to fear, there will be updates galore and some of my deeper musings that I have been cogitating on for a while -- think of them as my position papers for the next regime.

Oh hi.

I am back and tired and hoarse.

In less that 14 days Phracey and not so noble Spot arrive.

TH mom is girding for trouble.

swollen noses

This was my swollen nose. It is better now.

I am currently with Rocky, the basseherd and a pit cross. Apparently, we are having a good time running around and jumping on each other.

This may be reason enough to get me a bruddar.

I'm in lockdown, but without a roomie.

Please send one.

Scruffy, save me!

Kindly tell me what is wrong with this picture?

Nothing really, but what seems different?

Will it hurt my political career or will it bolster it?

My nose is getting better but currently it is occupying half of the living room.

ernest whose nose knows

I have a humongous lopsided nose due to a yellow jacket that stung me yesterday.

I see benadryl, smooches and lots of naps in my future.

I am having a day.

I seem to be a bit lethargic which could be due to heat.

I am happy to eat my amendments and what biscuits are thrown my way.

I am not happy to eat kibble.

I am happy to curl up under a duvet in 80 degree weather.

I was bitten on my schnoz by a wasp. I am now lopsided.

yours is a very bad hotel

Oh Hi!

Where was I?


Three day weekend, busy moms and lots of walks.

All I can say is on the fourth of July I encountered four great danes at the dog park.

My neck still hurts from looking up.

We went to watch the fireworks. The oohing and aahing and flashing lights kept me up past my bedtime.

I hate that. However, the next day we all slept in until 6:20 am.

Is that cool or what?
