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!

Spoils of War (?)

It looks as if a massacre had happened in our back yard....
or, perhaps, the lawnmower ran over a rabbit, or even a corgi.
How horrid the headlines would be....how tragic.



Of course, none of those things occurred...



It was a common, everyday thing...happening across America.





Just the simple act of Saturday night baths in a (corgi) kid household. It wasn't pretty. Oh my land...it was a hairy experience indeed!

The snapping, the snarling...from Jim and I, hee hee.

The dogs, mildly, gave up the battle, and meekly accepted their fate.
Suds, towel rubbing and worst of all...the dreaded b-r-u-s-h-i-n-g.



But....we're all the better for the experience. Amen.

You had me going with that first photo!
Lucky you, neither Jake or Addie is wearing the post-bath expression I usually get from Caraleigh. I can't write it in public, but you get the idea :)

Dog hair definitely rules in my house, I have three corgis. In the summertime if I have the ceiling fan on, the hair blows to the sides and corners of the rooms and it looks like tumbleweed.

I love your blog. I am new to the blogging world and started my blog about three weeks ago. I talk about corgis, miniatures, flowers and anything else that comes along.
Please stop by and visit my blog:

LOL! We thought the terrible duo had taken on bunnies or something! Bath time is always good for action shots!

Love, Dozer and Cooper
