Okay here goes nothing.....my first post on my brand spankin new blog. EEEEK it's like giving birth without pain killers. I'm not even sure where to start. I figure this blog is gonna be a mish mash of stuff .....decorating, gardening, books, my family (if I can get them to let me post pictures of them without the threat of bodily harm) . But I guess we'll start with baby steps, and introduce you to the only members of my family that aren't camera shy. My 4 legged babies.
First there is Crumpet. Yes he would be the inspiration for my nickname. Crumpet is a Soft Coated Wheaton Terrier, and he is the biggest lovelump in the world. He is 3 yrs old, blonde hair, brown eyes, and enjoys long squirrel chases and kissing wild bunnies. Thats right....a few days ago this little sweetheart cornered a bunny inside his pen. The poor thing was so scared (the bunny of course) and froze in the corner. Crumpet was so excited he didn't know how to contain himself. But being a lover and not a fighter he just started licking the bunny on the head. My husband insists he was "tasting him" I however am positive he was giving the bunny some "crumpet loves".
Since my hubby and I both work, we worried that crumpet might get lonely. So for his birthday we brought him home a little buddy. Meet Ozgood He is almost 1 yr old...He is a miniature schnauzer salt and pepper hair, glowing red eyes (not really but they should be) he enjoys chewing, yapping, and annoying my poor hubby. And yes.....he is as evil as he looks in this photo. Okay not really evil...but he does have a wee-bit-o-the-demon in him.
When we first brought him home he looked so sweeet.....Little did we know that he was going to UNtrain Crumpet in half the time it took us to train him. But even with all that....we still love him bunches!
Since one of my favorite past times is floating lazily around the pool with a good book...it was imperative that my little buddies learn to enjoy this slug behavior also. That way I feel less guilty knowing that I'm not the only one getting nothing accomplished on a sunny day.
Okay Ozzie has had enough of this nonsense...it's time for a chewy cheese roll and a nap. Which means that my first official steps into the blogosphere are now at an end. Thank you for coming...oh wait there isn't anyone here......hello...HELLOOOOO????
