Beaches & Barfs


Miss Brekke went to the beach on Sunday, an activity she very much enjoys. And yes, she is wearing a life vest. Safety first!

I love how this dog has a very full life, even in the midst of a pandemic. She has doggie play dates, goes on outings.... all kinds of things. 

And now for the barfs. Vina has always gone into MY bathroom and used MY rug, bypassing all else of her mom's. So... should I be honored? I am very confused.

Today she had two rounds on my rug.

Happy Caturday

 I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

In my last post Vina's picture showed her taking in a stroll around the backyard. She has become... addicted... to being outside. No desire to run off, just enjoy the dirt on her dainty paws and the breezes in her lovely furs. Her mom takes her outside on a regular basis, but it's never quite enough. She will sneak out through the dog door if she can, so that has to be carefully monitored. 

Brekke was given two sweaters as Christmas gifts. Her uncle sent this one. She is *very* proud of these. 

There is ALWAYS time to be a goofy girl though.

Welcome 2021

 We expect you to behave yourself a LOT BETTER than the last year, ok?

So last night, my roommate and I are watching a few minutes of Yule Kittens on tv. It's just an hour of adorable tots with a Christmas tree background doing what kittens do. Much oohinng and awwwing ensued. And that is how this story begins.

WE may have been enchanted by this fuzzy display but Princess Sylvina definitely was not. In fact, she was so outraged by our shamelessness that she gets up from the ottoman, goes to the tv stand and perches herself right in front of the view. 

She wanted us to know that she IS the view.

She has never shown any interest in what was going on with the tv before, ever. We all know that cats are excellent communicators, and I think it's very clear what this feline was thinking!

This will be tucked away in my book of memories as one of the funniest things I have ever seen.

Meowwy Christmas


I hope everyone has a wonderful and peaceful Christmas and New Year's Eve.

May 2021 bring great tidings of joy to us all.

In other news... I have something special to celebrate. My company lost so many people before and after the sale, they had to take measures to keep those they had left. For me, that included a rather nice raise! I'd done whatever I could to position myself this past year as an employee worth keeping; my manager told me that my dedication had not gone unnoticed. 

Random timing or that special Christmas magic? I'll let you decide. I already know what I think.

The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God."

Luke 1:35.

I Always Thought....


that cats were challenging enough when making up a bed. 

Attempting to, anyway.

Enter the 63 lb dog. Sigh.
