Summer Sun

The three of us enjoyed sleeping in (at least Steve & I did) and a 5-mile walk at Minto. Now we're all hungry and Biggs is heading downhill to crash land in Napville. :)

Things I've Learned From German Shepherds...

We watched two German Shepherd pups overnight this weekend. Bigsby was elated! Here's what I, a non-German Shepherd person, have learned from them:

1. We're German. We're stubborn and opinionated and somewhat war-like, just like the people.

2. No matter what size or breed you are, we will try to win. Again, we're German.

3. If all humans are out of site for more than 2 minutes, commence pitiful whining.

4. If there's a ball, there's only a ball. Nothing else exists.

5. If your opponent (or even your teammate) is nearby, never drop the ball.

6. Stare at humans for awkwardly long amounts of time. It's funny to watch them squirm.

7. Food is good.

8. Pretend you're deaf. It gets you more attention.

9. Equality is essential. If you have something, so should I.

10. Learn "normal". If anything deviates from this, freak out and bark loudly. Humans like this. Most humans. Ok, maybe just our masters at our house...

11. We love to love. Kisses. Hugs. Cuddles.

I have never used the slang term "Fail"... until today. I woke up at 4am to a whining puppy. To spare Steve lost sleep, I got up.

Back to bed at 5am.

Woke up at 6:15. Looked at my nightstand. Thought I was hallucinating. Rubbed my eyes. No hallucinations. There really were baby spiders crawling all over. Scream.

Got out of bed and ran downstairs to grab my clothes out of the dryer. Opened the laundry door to a pond that ran out the back door and also out into the garage all the way to the driveway.

On top of that, my fridge hasn't been working right.

Later we (dog & I) stopped at Steve's office to take a walk with him. I dropped my first dime in the parking meter. Nothing. Dropped my last coin in. Nothing. I jiggled it. It displayed this message "FAIL. Out of order." How did it know that perfectly described my morning so far??

Off to my doctor's appointment. Let's hope my touch doesn't break anything or anyone there!

Lord, help!

Bigsby & Me

Probably the best portrayal of our relationship. "Does this hurt, Kari?"
