Oh hai!  Just standin’ here, 59 days short of 15 years old, looking FAB-U-LOUS.

I just finished a 13 day stretch of, like, 10 hour days at work.  Vet Tech went to Hawaii (rage, hate, seething jealousy etc.) so I did her job as well as mine.  No days off, just work work work.  Had a day off today finally and what did I do?  GO TO WORK!

But that was just to pick up my chickens, which are now living in this temporary coop (because my real coop needs anti-coyote renovations).


(For the record, steel panels are very very heavy)

I had a bunch of errands to run and a house to clean but I snapped a few photos today.  The dogs were being entirely uncooperative, probably because I worked so much the last two weeks they forgot who I was and why they are supposed to listen to me.

I remember a Food Lady, who used to tell me to stop eating dirt.  I wonder what happened to her?

What naughty thing should I do next?

More rolling in something stinky?

OMG THE FOOD LADY!  I missed you!  I’m gettin’ a damn HUG!

I never actually listened to anything you told me to do anyway, so … same-same.

I see you every day at work, and you’re boring.

Rhumba’s right, I *am* boring.  I will try to meet the Interesting quota for the next post.  But I am about to go to bed, because work robbed me of two weeks, but daylight savings time is robbing me of an hour’s sleep and 3:30AM sounds like an incredibly depressing time to get up tomorrow :/

I love you Food Lady!!

And that’s why Piper is my favourite!

Tough as f*ck little suckas You don’t wanna mess with ‘em. They fast. They fight dirty (or they’re just dirty because of all the rain and mud). And their weapon of choice? URINE. doG DAMN but I’m having a helluva time housebreaking Fae.  The Italian Greyhounds, at least, use the potty pads.  I hate the […]



Nearly a year ago in the BC Lower Mainland, a dogwalker  named Emma Paulsen left her 6 canine charges in the back of a canopied pick-up truck to basically boil to death.  It was about 20C outside (70F) and the dogs without question suffered immeasurably as the temperature went up in that small space, and […]
