Maybe you were just being protected from the marauding poinsettias!!

I've got a couple of little dachsies that could use some herding. How about it?

Redford is quite used to being herded, and doesn't seem to mind it, because Newman's done that to him ever since he arrived. We could send him for a visit...or perhaps Riley needs a permanent friend? :)

Oh, dear. Didn't you explain that poinsettias are sickening?

Don't worry! These are silk poinsettias!

I think that after Otto and Cody go home, we may have to get Riley a dog.

glad they're silk poinsettias. And Scout needs a job, sometimes, too. (being part husky, we think she needs to pull something regularly....)

Tuesday seems to need a job lately, too. We left them inside all last week because she had started digging and making a huge mess. Then over the last few days, she's begun to find "jobs" when left alone inside. Jobs involving scotch tape, allergy eyedrops, wastebasket contents, yarn labels (but thankfully no yarn!)...

My friend Dina's dog Piper ate her husband's Master Card.

All of these dogs need to remember that Santa is coming soon!

In the early days, F used to drag our slippers and shoes, and line them up neatly at the top of the stairs, whenever we were out. I never figured out why, but he seemed to think it was his job.

Once again I am grateful for the saintly and contempletive Maggie the Peke who thinks her job is mostly to nap.
