Lazy Sunday

For a pup who never used to be able to settle down outside of her crate, Gypsy sure has warmed up to the notion of napping.

Thanks, Hank!

Our good buddy Hank (a.k.a. Captain Wetbeard) sent the girls a belated Christmas present.

The artist captured the girls perfectly! We have a matching one of Lucky Bunny from a few years ago, but that's already packed away with the other decorations.

Thanks Hank, you're really super (even though for the first year we all wanted to ship you on a slow boat to a land far, far away...)

Maisey Ate a Smurf

Or, rather, she came over for some scratchies when I was in the middle of a pastel piece. I blend colors with my fingers when I'm doing abstract pieces, so my fingertips were covered. Oops.

The Backyard Project

The back yard is open for business! The fence is now solid and the deck crawlspace has been covered with lattice work. The girls love it. Having such a safe and secure space means the dogs can spend a lot more time outside. Sitting at the dining room table, which we do a lot, we have a nearly panoramic view of the backyard, so we can watch them while they run and play. They pulled up the remnants of a weed tree and it's like the greatest toy on earth. They love to carry it around and fight over it. Only downside is that it looks oh-so-slightly like a limp squirrel, which has scared the krap out of us on more than one occasion.

Proof of Sleep

Gypsy is a busy dog. She is constantly on the go.

She does crate up beautifully and lounges in there contentedly, but when she's out of her crate, she is is constant motion. Always up to (or, more likely, into) something. So today I share a rare photograph of Gypsy snoozing outside of her crate.

What a lovely evening it was.
