Why We No Longer Have DirecTV

Diva has severed the outdoor cable that runs to the DirecTV dish on top of our house.
And here we were today, fiddling with the receiver, resetting it, unplugging it and waiting, calling customer service, etc. and ALL THE WHILE it was ....... Guess Who.

That's right. She pulled down the cable, chewed it up and quietly severed it.


(I wonder if we bought the "Doggie Destruction Service Plan"?)

The Scene of the Crime

Get the theme to "Dragnet" in your mind as you're reading the below.

For the purposes of this post, I'm Joe Friday. :-)

I arrived at the scene of the crime to find this.

That's right: avert your eyes, if you must, at the carnage, but what you're beholding is a once beautiful but now shredded and severed fur scarf. As you can see, canine tooth marks, and dog drool still markedly present. (This is the last remaining section of the scarf - everything else was in pieces...)

Any clear suspects you ask?

Why yes. Just one. With a silly grin on her face, and fur pieces still clinging to her teeth.

A Dream.... or a Premonition??

Last night I had a VERY realistic dream that we added a THIRD girl to our "team" of pups... a female Golden Retriever named.... Lila.

Isn't that a beautiful name?

She was gorgeous.... pale, pale yellow... almost white.

And she had the sweetest little heart shaped face and was just a LOVE!

I told Ron about it this morning and he looked at me like I'd been smoking crack.

(I guess that means NO.)

However, I'm thinking maybe Lila exists somewhere in our future, and was coming to visit me in my dreams. I hope she continues to visit me in my dreams. :-)

A Day at "Dog Academy"

Ruby the Rock Star

Ruby went to the vet today to get her stitches out from her recent surgery to remove her bladder stones.

She is SUCH the littler rock star at the vet's office.
I'm biased of course, but she truly is THE sweetest dog that I've ever known. And I've known many, many, many dogs.

She constantly has a smile on her face, is constantly wagging her tail and is just generally a really happy girl. What a sweet baby doll!

The Latest....

Doggie Update:

Ruby has recovered beautifully from her surgery. Our finances are still recovering (between the 2 dogs, we spent $1,200 at the vet during the month of December). Zoinks, Shaggy!

Diva's Destructive Ways: yesterday, the kids and I went out to run errands and his some post-Christmas sales. We were gone 2 hours, tops. We came home to find:

  1. Destroyed earmuffs
  2. Shredded dustcover for one of my favorite books (the book itself is still missing... I'm wondering if it was ingested...)
  3. The owners manual for my new camera - shredded
  4. A vacuum cleaner attachment (the little brush thing - I never use it anyway, so it's no great loss) - CHEWED beyond recognition
  5. A new sketchpad - destroyed.

Amazing, that dog. Good thing she is well-loved!
