Christmas and New Year’s with my folks in Florida has been wonderful. For me, and my mutts. My father actually doesn’t mind being the center of their adoring, food coveting, drooling over pie-stare-downs.
What you have here are my two Black Labs (Clover and Cosmo), my parent’s Golden Retriever (Misty) and my sister’s Shi-tzu (Keili). Keili is a cute litting piss-pot floor pooper that is relegated to sleep in the kitchen when she’s here. My sister says, “She’s a little dog with a little bladder.” Hmmm. I beg to differ, but am not about to start WWIII over her mutt’s inability to hold it until I get up at 6:00 a.m. to take the menagerie outside.
I have named this photo, “Pathetic, and More Pathetic, with Patheticker, and the Little Piss Pot.” Oh, o.k. She is cute! And, she’s gone home now.
I bet my parents can’t wait to see the ass-end of me and my two loud animals, too! Note to my mom: Clover didn’t mean to bark so much, she just can’t help it. And, you better wash that parsley and sage and basil REALLY WELL, ’cause Cosmo has been seen lifting his leg on your herbs a couple of times this past two weeks!
