Lots of adventures this week

We had a lot of adventures this past week. Early in the week Maggie was chasing me and jumped on the scratcher at the top of the stairs and ended up riding it halfway down the stairs like a sled.

Huggy Bear gave Mom and Dad a scare when he was eating a treat and got a little piece stuck in the back of his mouth. He started frantically flicking his tongue trying to get it out. Dad had to do a finger sweep but that didn't help much. Eventually he settled down but it was a little nerve wracking.

Saturday night Maggie and I found a little beetle bug in the house. Not that big a deal really, but hunting slow moving bugs can be fun.

But the highlight of the week was Sunday morning. Mom and Dad had let us go play in the garage. Josie managed to catch a lizard in the garage and carried it into the house. She had it halfway in her mouth with just its two back legs and tail hanging out. Mom yelled, Dad ushered Josie back into the garage before she could release the lizard in the house. Josie dropped the lizard once she was back in the garage and the lizard slipped away. She loves to hunt lizards, but I'm not sure how she got it in her mouth like that.

Mom's helper

We like to pretend that this doesn't happen. Sometimes you just have to turn a blind eye to misbehavior.

This is Leo, a miniature Schnauzer. When Mom has shows with her theatre Leo hangs out with her some during the construction phase. He belongs to the guy who runs the space that Mom's theatre is renting right now. Leo is a funny dog, and very sweet, so we allow it.

Hiding behind the pineapple

Maggie wouldn't leave Josie alone so she his behind the pineapple. I'm not sure if that's a great hiding spot or not...

Bird watching

Huggy Bear spotted something exciting out the front window -- a bird! This female cardinal was hanging out on the roof over the front porch while the male was flitting around the tree. She was unfazed by Huggy Bear (or never even noticed him). He watched for a few minutes then got bored. At least he didn't try to go through the screen to get her.

Dirty Dad

Sweet Josie thought Dad was dirty so she was cleaning him yesterday. After a minute of so Dad realized it was starting to feel a little raw where she was licking. Later last night the raspberry showed up on his arm. It looks a little better now than it did Saturday night. The lesson here: sometimes love hurts.

Sometimes we can be gross

Mom and Dad were relaxing watching TV when Josie came in to the middle of the living room and began to narf up all the food she just ate. Huggy Bear rushed over to her like he was concerned, then started to eat her ABC food, much to Mom's disgust. Dad quickly cleaned it up before he could eat any more, but that's a tough image to burn out of your mind.

Stinky Goodness Cake

I had my Stinky Goodness birthday cake tonight. As is our tradition our cake is in the shape of our year -- my 13 looks a little messy but it tasted good. Looks like I'm getting to the age where I need two cans of food to make my number.

Thanks for the birthday wishes!
