Friday Zzzzz


Micah:  Well, phooey!  We didn't get to publish our Mousebreath interview today.  Instead we published Nap Time.  It's disappointing but it's been that kind of a week! 

Cyndi:  It's a holiday weekend in the U.S., so perhaps no one will notice.  We will be back next week with this week's interview.

My New Blue Ball



Marcus:  ♫ My new blue ball.  My new blue ball.
                    I luv, luv, lu-u-uv my new blue ball.

               ♫  I bite it and chew it and nudge it with my nose.
                    I hold it, then shove it, and follow where it goes.
                    I roll it and bounce it.  It travels everywhere -

Taylor:  Stop with the new blue ball song! I've heard it so many times today you have me singing it. Jan said if she trips over it one more time, she's going to make you eat it.


Marcus:  She can't!  It's for aggressive chewers and is supposed to be almost indestructible.  That's why she bought it.  Guess she'll just have to keep tripping over it.

Taylor:  If it keeps you from deflating another football or soccer ball or chewing up your other toys, I guess it was a good purchase.  But stop singing about it!


Marcus:  Okay.  Can I hum?

Taylor:  No!  Just chew.


Marcus:  ♫  *gnaw, gnaw, gnaw*  ♫

Taylor:  And no gnawing to the tune either!

Marcus:  This ball was a lot more fun when I could sing.  I wonder if I can bounce it to the tune while Taylor naps?


Jan:  This is NOT, NOT, NOT a review!!!  I purchased this ball on Amazon because it is supposed to be tough and contain no BPAs.  Anyone who has been reading this blog knows Marcus needs tough!  He has deflated more balls with his first bite than I can count.  He loves this.  I wish I could afford a second one, so we could play ball in the dirty/muddy dog pen because this ball is the right size for him to play with but not to choke to death on if I threw it and he caught it wrong, but it isn't possible, so he'll have to make do with one in the house.  (It holds his attention and keeps him from constantly annoying the cats.)

He did take it outside once and dropped it when he went out to pee and I had to tell him it is an inside only ball.  I think he's plotting how to get it past me again, but his outside toys are gross and not allowed in the house except in a special receptacle, even though they are washed first.

He really does love his new ball.  It's no wonder he can't stop singing about it.  :)

Dirt Cloud Rising

Cyndi:  Why do you guys have to be such dirt collectors?  You bring that dirt in the house, you know, and we all have to deal with it.  *licks paw*  We girls don't like to be dirty.


Rusty:  Grass won't grow in the dog pen any more, so bringing dirt in the house isn't our fault.

Marcus:  Just because Jan claims every time I shake, I add another 2 inches of dirt to the layer in the house doesn't make it so.  She probably should wash her reading glasses more often so she can tell the difference between steam from the humidity and dirt from the yard.

Cyndi:  I don't wear glasses and I can see the dirt cloud rising when you two shake off in the house.


Rusty:  Well, since I'm sharing the blame, I might as well share the fun.  Come on, Marcus, let's roll!

Safe At Last


Buddy:  These two adorable Pomeranians are finally safe at the county animal shelter!  It has been a harrowing two weeks as Jan has waited patiently for due process of law to permit our Animal Control Officer to trap them before they were injured or killed.

Cyndi:  They are bonded, so it was exciting that they were trapped within about 1/2 hour of each other and they were able to go to the shelter together.  If they are not claimed within three days, they will go up for adoption or Miss Peggy will find a rescue to take such a handsome pair.  Hopefully, they will be adopted together. 


Buddy:  It's a complicated abandonment story and probably not one we should tell.  Suffice it to say that Jan slept well last night, knowing they are okay.  Thank you, Miss Kat (ACO) for being so kind and patient with them.  They were having too much fun - and "catered" meals - and did not want to give up their freedom!





Micah:  I guess I get to introduce our Mousebreath interview of this week.  As you can probably guess, his name is Biscuit.  Stop by Mousebreath for The Story of Biscuit.  I think you will enjoy it.
