Babies & Dogs & Friends
The last few weeks have been a flurry of activity and sunshine. Friends were here for Easter, and sleepovers were held and crunchy rolls and bunny cake and cheese fries were eaten and champagne was drunk and Freaks and Geeks DVDs were watched and pointy-toed heels were worn and hot guys were eyed at mass and cigarettes were smoked on the back patio and as always there were laughter and tears.
Dog adventure number one took place in my parents' neighborhood, where Shelley and I saw fit to rescue a Jack Russell who nearly planted herself underneath the tires of my car. I opened the car door to inspect her tag, and she hopped inside and jumped back and forth between our laps, licking us. We put her back in her backyard after finding her address on her tag, hoping that trespassing laws don't apply to good samaritans, and tried to plug up a hole where it looked like she got out with a child's plastic grocery store buggy.
Then Daisy and Zuko went on a walk around the lakes with H. and her two dogs, and all was well and good until Daisy and Kaury's little one tried to eat each other's faces off, Daisy went into time out, and the remaining dogs ran around the yard taking turns peeing in the exact same spots.
Then Sal, the giant yellow lab next door, decided that he now lives at my house. Which means that every time I've turned around the past few days, he's magically appeared in my backyard. He's a total fence scaler. Luckily, my dogs are fearsome enough of his gargantuanness that they don't try to kill him, so they're all basically ignoring each other, but he eats all of their food in that Lab-like way that does not involve actual chewing or swallowing but in which his throat transforms into a giant vacuum. This morning, he destroyed my dogs' bathing sponge and a bottle of Avon bug spray. I am so overcome by his cuteness, though, that I don't even care. I hope he doesn't totally trample every single thing I have ever planted with his spastic largeness.
Dogs. Just ... dogs. Everywhere. I am ready for a break from the dogs.
So instead I'll focus on babies. Namely, the many pictures I took of the cutest one there is.
About this time in ...
