I ate my words…

About 100 times over.  The night times are going pretty well with Little Girl, but during the day she gets a little ticked at being in her kennel and tends to make a mess. Which is ok because I understand she has a baby bladder, blah blah, but it doesn’t change the stink in the room. We are going through candles like a pioneer household.

Oh! And on that note, we WERE a pioneer household for about 15 hours last week.  We had some major thunderstorms and flooding last week (which is great for the yard, so no complaints) and the dogs for certain thought that the sky was falling.  Which it might have, because when I got home from work on Thursday afternoon we had no power. Great news and just what you want to come home to after a long day at work.

I won’t bore you with the details, but it involved NO power (and 2 empty promises from CPS) for 15 hours straight, along with Husband and I and the puppy and her kennel, loading up and going to my parents house for the night. (We left Lola to enjoy some peace and quiet for the night.  She probably threw a party.)  The next day at 7:30am the power was restored. On our house and our neighbors. Because lucky us–we were the only two on the block to be taken down.

Luckily we had a backup plan because sleeping in a house with no power and no AC in South Texas as the summer is winding down is what you might call brutal.

So back to the girls…here’s how they’re doing together now:

Some of my favorite times look like this:

PearlchairThe zooms are over and she’s out for a solid hour or two…sweet nectar of the gods!  I love her dearly, but her energy is unmatched.

And here’s one more for the road….when Kazoo and Little Girl are knocked out. Also known as the Golden Hour.

sleeping dogsY’all have a great afternoon! I’ll try to crawl out of the kennel and post a few things this week.
