Thoughtless Thursday: Just WATCHING

Sometimes watching hoomans go round and round doing "stuff"
is really entertaining.  Kind of like watching ants in one of those ant farms.

It's good to be a BICHON.
I have one chore on my list:


I think I got this down.
Any moment now, she will see me, she will stop, drop and KISS me silly.  Any moment...

Tasty Tuesday : simply delicious.


It is the season, and you know what that means?

"Boobeeeries sorbet"
A 5 step summer treat:
[Without egg white!]

1. wash blueberries
2. freeze blueberries
3. food process blueberries
4. add equal parts of yogurt
5. and 1 TBS of local honey

scoop and serve.

Ehmmmm could you please bring it outside by the pool?  The HELP these days.... lazy, no make that Lazy with a capital L.

Did you know that blueberries make my black nose darker? And my tongue PINKIER!

Yes I eat it for all the right reasons... my nose needs to be darker, the local honey boosts my immune system, nahhh that it is delicious is just a bonus...
Don't you believe me?  I only eat things that are good for me! "Honest truth" !!!
There is this bridge I would like to sell.  Would you like to own a bridge?  It is one of a kind, it has a wonderful name... "Golden Gate Bridge"   It would be like owning jewelry, almost, but on a larger scale.
You doubt my veracity? I do not even own that!

Well doubt whatever you want, but try this!

Monday, resting up after a busy weekend.

Some of us forced the pawrents out and about instead  watching them do of all that work that they claim they have to do. Whatever, all I know is, my closet is in perfect order, so I do not need to hear about other closets that need to be cleaned out.  I needed to go out and I made sure I got my Sunday outing.
Met some lovely people, met some nice dogs, and even had my first face to face with a green  thingie, momma called a gecko. Hey is that the dude from the commercial? He was kind of uppity... Ehhh. 

My favorite part of the weekend was the boardwalk. The smells, the noise, the activity.
Besides, I am a people watcher and trust me on this, the boardwalk is prime real estate for people watching. {Yea I judge... but I am not allowed to say things out loud., not until I get my own fashion police show... momma and her rules... ugh!}

Some of us, like Quint spent the time getting all settled in and loving his new digs. Heyyyy Quint got enough toys there? Took me a bit to find you in the picture!

Some of an emergency bath after rolling and running through a mud puddle. Max, nice trick. So, that's how you avoid the blow dryer, you act all wiped out and sleepy after the bath!  Duly noted.  Except that would probably not even remotely slow down my momma... OCD  herself would probably tell me that I can nap AFTER the comb out and blow dry...

So... what was your favorite part of the weekend?

It's Black and White SUNDAY!!! Let's roll!

Time to get our adventure going. I just gave you four excellent reasons why today will not be spent on "chores". I can live or die with remorse momma, not with regrets. LET'S ROLL!


Thank you for hosting Nola and Sugar:

Sepia Saturday: HOW TO PAW [handle] THE MOMMA

I am not supposed to be on the bed... I was.. rolling, scenting myself, digging a little, you know, I was "having some me time..."  OOOOOPS... I hear momma... she is coming upstairs... Best defense is DISTRACTION!  I am going to show you how I "distract momma " so I don't get in trouble.

Step 1.  Don't hide, call her over, growl and invite her closer, assume play bow position.  Make her think you have been waiting for her this whole time and that she is LATE for play time. "Talk" up a storm. She will be so busy trying to figure out what you are actually saying she will forget the -get off my bed- speech.
You notice, I have not given in an inch.  I am still on the bed.  I OWN the bed. It is MY territory. 

Step2. PLAY BOW POSITION! Just wait her out.
She can't resist it.
Helicopter the tail. Do not offer the belly - yet-. Make her earn that belly!
Don't forget that you are the BICHON. You have the fluffytude.  You have the power!

Step3. And before she can regain her composure and start in on that old tired speech about getting off the bed,
Sprinkle some guilt on her:
"You never play with me anymore"
"I guess you don't love me anymore"
"Is my cuteness not enough for you?"

[You notice I am completely out of focus, right?  That's because I am wagging my whole body while growl talking at Momma]

You know what? SHE GAVE IN.  I got a wonderful play session  followed by a belly rub and I got to ride downstairs in momma's arms. And for the record, I will be back on that bed, soon...

In my mailbox:  From Tidewater Bichon Frise Rescue

John and Cheryl  of Gloucester, VA and their Bichon, Cuddles, 

are the new mom and dad and sister to Quint :)

WELCOME to the family! [No, the bills are not separate.  Hahahahaha, I crack me up!  Get it?  spoof of that commercial....]

My momma is particularly happy because she knows what a fab family Quint has joined.  I love starting my day with great news!.  I am doing helicopter tail and shaking my booty to a little cha cha...

[ I am attracting a lot of attention...I do have a great tushy. No point in engaging in false modesty. Nothing beats a Bichon Butt, sorry Kim K.West.... but it is true.  Not to diminish all you have accomplished with your hooooman butt, such as it is, tailless and all...]

But back to Quint. Little boy, your TBFR family is thrilled for you. We know what a loving boy you are and we look forward to seeing you blossom.

Obviously you have to, have to, have to COME TO THE BASH.  You have to bring your pawrents and sister so we can all meet up. And you have to show off.  It is expected and normal. And don't forget that you have to "distance" snob auntie Robin and uncle Jack.   They will whine about it, but secretly love it because it means you are fully bonded with your new family.

Just a couple of bits of wisdom, play it cool, play by the rules [at first anyway] and make sure that your momma never has an empty lap!  Fulfill your destiny!

Send me a pic.

Meanwhile, I dance with joy!!!!

And The Wendy joins me! Chasses, reverse top, Turkish towel...Hip twist spiral.... cha cha cha...
I love to dance!


Badges!? Oh, good! We need stinkin' badges.
