Riddick Is Determined…

…to get as dirty as he can as often as he can! And thanks to a very dry winter and a drought, our garden is a dustbowl so its super easy for him! He rolls in the sand and gets dirty from nose to tail, and he loves it – I can hear him rumbling and groaning from the other side of the house! 😀

October 2nd

On the 2nd, I put him in the bath and rinsed the sand off him – I didn’t even use shampoo, just water!

He got out of the bath and I towelled him a little dry, and he started doing “crazy run” as they all love to do after a bath!  I put a couple more towels down for him to roll on and he was having such fun… and suddenly it seemed too much and he got all wobbly… 😦
I chased the other dogs outside so I could calm Riddick down, and he sort-of slept on the kitchen floor for a while.
Lookit his scarred nose! o.O

He was clean for all of three days! This is October 6th

He was clean for all of three days! This is October 6th

And October 7th!

And October 7th!

And when he gets up from where he’s been lying – he leaves a pile of sand behind! 😀

How Many Dogs Does It Take To Change A Lightbulb?

Golden Retriever: The sun is shining, the day is young, we’ve got our whole lives ahead of us, and you’re inside worrying about a stupid burned out bulb?
Border Collie: Just one. And then I’ll replace any wiring that’s not up to code.
Dachshund: You know I can’t reach that stupid lamp!
Rottweiler: Make me.
Boxer: Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark.
Lab: Oh, me, me!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I? Pleeeeeeeeeze, please, please, please!
German Shepherd: I’ll change it as soon as I’ve led these people from the dark, checked to make sure I haven’t missed any, and make just one more perimeter patrol to see that no-one has tried to take advantage of the situation.
Jack Russell Terrier: I’ll just pop it in while I’m bouncing off the walls and furniture.
Old English Sheep Dog: Light bulb? I’m sorry, but I don’t  see a light bulb.
Cocker Spaniel: Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark.
Chihuahua: Yo quiero Taco Bulb. Or “We don’t need no stinking light bulb.”
Greyhound: It isn’t moving. Who cares?
Australian Shepherd: First, I’ll put all the light bulbs in a little circle…
Poodle: I’ll just blow in the Border Collie’s ear and he’ll do it. By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry.
How many cats does it take to change a light bulb?
Cats do not change light bulbs. People change light bulbs. The real question is: How long will it be before I can expect some light, some dinner, and a massage?

All of which proves, once again, that while dogs have masters… cats have staff!

Cat Quotes

“Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods.” 


― Christopher HitchensThe Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Nonbeliever

Inner Peace

If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you  can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day  and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved  ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and  blame without resentment,
If you can conquer tension without  medical help,
If you can relax without alcohol,
If  you can sleep without the aid of  drugs,

Then You Are Probably The Family Dog!


And  you thought I was going to get all spiritual on your ass!!

Mini-Me Moments…

I found Minx copying Greebo again!

Home Made Cat Toys

I saw something like this on the internet a while ago, and decided it would be something fun to keep my furbabies entertained!
It took ages for my household of three people to collect all the empty toilet rolls, but I finally had enough to make it challenging.
It stands on the floor or on a table, and I put kitty treats inside the tubes. They must then find which tube its in and get it out!
Minx and Greebo have mastered it! Its so cute!
Turk tries to stick his whole face into the tube to get the treat out and ends up knocking it over!
Diva and Magic pretend it does not exist.

You Know Its Hot When…

Even my son’s recently acquired bearded dragon- Spike- takes to chilling in his water dish!
Doesn’t it make you wish you were a lizard!!?!?

chiiiillin’, chiiiillin’… 

Giggle…

 

Greebo And The Socks…

I believe I have mentioned before (here and here) how Greebo “hunts” socks out of my son’s closet and washing basket? 
Well, last Saturday night we went to visit my folks for dinner and when we got home, this was the sight that greeted us as we walked in the front door! Four dirty socks and one cleaned pair in a ball!
And that’s Greebo by the way, sitting at the top of the picture.
