Snickers and the squirrel

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.27.2008

A squirrel sighting is a Major Event in the life of our dog. It ranks right up there with a cat sighting and an unclaimed rib eye steak.

“Ooh! Ooh! There’s a squirrel!”

“Come down and play with me!”

“I won’t eat you!”

“I promise!”


  1. Your Snickers looks exactly like our Bono!!

  2. Have I ever told you what a beautiful dog you have? I'm sure that you hear it all of the time but she's gorgeous!

  3. Oh wow, you're dog is soooo cool. My oldest, Herky, is a Shetland Sheep Dog, so, he's got the whole 'herding' thing goin' on....ALL the time. So, if it's a bunny, or bird, or little salamander, they all have to be brought together...and that means barking. A lot of it. LOL

    Gotta love them, though!!! Even though I might get query rejection after query rejection, I'm NEVER rejected by them. They just lick my face and look at me with their sweet, lovin' puppy eyes and nod, "Keep going, Mommy." Then, they take their dutiful place at my feet while I pluck away at the laptop for endless hours.

  4. With my dogs it is bunnies - they love the bunnies. For the past few weeks they have been barking at a burrow where some baby bunnies were growing up. The bunnies have flown the nest, so to speak, but the dogs are still barking at that hole!!

  5. Snickers is adorable!!! I have a black Lab and I just love him!!!

  6. He needs to come visit my doggie. My doggie will teach him how to get one. We're at 7 kills and counting.

  7. 7 KILLS???? Yuckos! I'd much rather she didn't. Hazmat is not my fav activity. LOL

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

Ashwin Keitou has enough problems. His aunt has just shown up on his doorstep, expecting to move in with him, and he can’t say no because he owes her everything—after his mother walked out on them, Aunt Nell took in Ashwin and his brother and raised them in a loving Christ
