Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Corgi Spa Thoughts...
'Twas spa time in our household last night. Addie bathes in the kitchen sink, one half in each stainless steel holding tank. She's a good girl, and likes bubble baths overall...what she enjoys most though, is the through rubdown afterwards. She closes her eyes and pretty much just enjoys the experience. Jim came out to assist in the comb out and Addie was lolling in ecstasy. I trimmed her hairy feet and dremeled her nails. She's a good sport, and liked our tag team efforts. What she despises is the camera. And the tea kettle; it whistles and she barks her head off! They love tea, and I occasionally give them the dregs of my decaf tea, laced with half and half. It's a Welsh thing I guess, and it warms their tummies.
Jake is an odd duck as well. He loves feet, anyone's feet. If a pizza man delivers, he's sniffing his tennies....our barefoot neighbor, boom.. he goes for the feet. If he sees me brushing my teeth in the morning, or putting on mascara, he comes into the bathroom, and lays on my feet. Letting me know, that he wants to go as well, we figure. They usually do go when we go somewhere. They'll have to learn to stay in their crates again, when we go back to work. We've spoiled them rotten the past three years, and they have become, and I say this, shamefully,short-hairy-children! After a bath, they both look like bear cubs...fuzzy, round butts, and exhausted....as are we!
Jake sez...."Oh me, oh my...I'm next! Believe me...HE'S a total different experience from Addie...he's a heart attack waiting to happen...he's a nightmare on a skate board...he's awful to give a bath to! "Brushing? Forgetaboutit! Catch me if you can!" He's a lover, and doesn't know a stranger...but at bathtime, or during grooming....he's Flash Gordon! Jake and his dad will have bath time fun today...while I'm out of town until evening! May the best man win!
