it's the Easter Pup







Finally got a few pictures of the Easter Pup. Miss Lucy came to visit. She is one fast little maniac. Crazy Lady. Anyway, ever since she first came here she has never gone near the stairs. Well, Lucy discovered the stairs now. Those little legs made a quick hop up while I wasn't looking because she heard her Daddy up there. The coming down part was not so great. She hasn't learned to be a graceful girl yet and tries to come down as fast as she scoots up. Can you say ass over teakettle. I stood at the bottom to try and slow her down but she dodged me and took off sideways over the couch in a leap of freedom. Tomorrow I get to Lucy sit since Dani is taking her test to get into the CPA program in September. Fingers crossed. That's a smart daughter-in-law though so I have great faith that all will come out alright in the end. I'm sure she will be thrilled to be done with it. She's been studying for months.


It's a fairly gloomy day here added to the fact that we had to go to a wake for a family friend last night and the funeral was this morning. Needless to say I was not happy about being in that place again. I did run into a friend I haven't seen in a couple of years. Husband of an old friend I've lost touch with for various reasons(see; selfish, pretentious, witch). Turns out they divorced...holy crap! How out of touch am I. You would never have imagined that these two would divorce but there it is... Thank goodness it was amicable enough and truthfully I'm happy for him. He's a great guy and the wife was all about the money. He owns a very prosperous business and, miracle of miracles, she left him for someone richer and a bit younger. No surprise there. Anyway, it took the edge off being at the funeral parlor to be able to sit and chat with him. He got to keep the incredibly beautiful house, the business he created 45 years ago and the guy she ran off with died within a year. Now she can be the fabulously wealthy widow she always dreamed of being(no kidding). Life sure does turn out strangely sometimes.

I'll try to get some work done but as Lucy is coming I have to make sure that every single thing is put up high since she likes to grab things and run, chew them and return them to you a lovely, slobbery, mess. Truth is I don't really care that much but my cashmere scarf almost fell victim recently so I better pay attention. I guess I'm baby proofing for the four legged baby.


Sleepy babies....well, one of them anyway.

Happy Easter or Passover which ever you celebrate. Talk to you soon.

That's an interesting and ironic story about "husband of an old friend."

LOL! I had to teach Scooter how to do stairs. He was very scared. Of course, now he sprints up and down to my studio to visit me.

Lucy is so low to the ground, she could just slide down!!

Happy Easter to you. My fave service, Easter Vigil, is coming up.

I'm in the same boat... doggie proofing. The kids are stopping by on Sunday with their 2 floor dusters... poodle and something else small mixes. First thing in the door Max took a dump on my carpet! Endearing, huh. Have fun with yours. And Happy Easter to you, too.

I've been on blog break so it was especially nice to return and see that you're posting again.

And I like the new blog look.

Oh doggies - they do keep us on our toes. I remember having to 'teach' Daisy how to go up and down the stairs. To start with she could be carried . . . but that didn't last long. Sometimes it was a long and encouraging process, but we did it *s*
