Things to Share

Thank you, Alison.  What an honor!  This whole blogging thing never ceases to amaze me.  I started with great reluctance over a year ago, and I’ve met – and continue to meet – so many warm, wonderful, fascinating people!  I agree with Alison…  I get something from all the blogs I read, whether you’re on the list that will follow or not.  It’s a rather unique community; it’s hard to explain to non-bloggers how it works, but I’m so glad that each and every one of you does blog, and/or stops by to see what I’m blathering about on a given day.

Here are the rules, as passed down from Alison:

Please take accept this award from me and …
1. Please put the logo on your blog.
2. Link the person from whom you received your award .
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put the links of those blogs on to your blog.
5. Leave a message on their blogs to tell them!


So, now that for the THIRD flippin’ day in a row, Mugsy (the two-legged dog) has run away from home…  I’ve kinda’ lost where I was going with this post.  Please, any and all of you… consider yourselves nominated and keep the award moving. 

And no, I am *NOT* exaggerating.  The Knight caught Houdini (as he was calling Mugsy last night) over near our metal shed (the one in the rear of the house) yesterday afternoon, after leaving him alone just long enough to prepare Sissy’s food.  Sissy was in the pen at the time, so that made sense; he wanted to be near her.  So, this afternoon, I kept him inside while Sissy had a hearty run (courtesy of her invisible fence), and then put him in the front yard for a requested potty break.  Ha.  The joke was on me.  Just moments later, the Knight pulled in the drive, and I asked him why he’d not scooped the prince up on his way in.  “Ummm… because he wasn’t there?” was the answer.  

The Knight likes to joke.  I rolled my eyes, and asked him to bring Mugsy in before he crawled off again, to which the Knight replied, “Too late,” and headed from room to room along the back of the house, looking out windows.  Sure enough, from the kitchen window, he caught the “got to keep on movin'” dog on the go, around the back of the pen.  He quickly went to fetch Mugsy, who responded with a glare and then turned his head away from the Knight’s chest (where he was being held like a baby).   

Ain’t nothin’ gonna to break my stride
Nobody’s gonna slow me down, oh-no
I got to keep on movin’
Ain’t nothin’ gonna break my stride
I’m running and I won’t touch ground
Oh-no, I got to keep on movin’

It was the theme song of my high school track team, and it seems to fit Mugsy’s current attitude too, which brings us to the last little thing I want to share with you.  Mugsy now has his own blog.  There will be updates here, but for those of you interested in the details, you can follow along over there.  Monica and Anita have made said site possible, and I truly appreciate all of the support many of you have offered.

Oh – and the prince has suddenly gotten VERY mouthy again, after over a year of near silence.  It finds me shaking my head, and smiling.  The ol’ boy still has lots of spunk and wants us to note it!

    I’m glad that Mugs is still on the go. He’s certainly a strong pup!

  3. Let me guess, Mugsy’s favorite book is Go Dog Go?
    Good luck with that ole rascal!

  4. Bubblesknits says:

    LOL! That’s hilarious. I can just imagine him scooting off as soon as you turn your back. 🙂 Goofy boy. How much longer till he gets his wheels?

  5. Nancy says:

    Oh, I can see it now….those wheels are going to get a work out!

  6. AlisonH says:

    I love your wheel! And the look on that little face–soon as he lets me down and looks the other way I am so out of here! I’ll go where I want and when I want and they can’t MAKE me (followed by, Moooooommmmm…!)

  7. alison says:

    The wheel is so sweet. I think you might have a willing helper in Sissy. Mugsy is certainly keeping everyone on their toes.

  8. Mary says:

    Go Mugsy go!!! lol how funny! Very fitting song, but may want o watch out when his new wheels come in, he may be gone!!

  9. gaylen says:

    If he’s moving that well without the wheels – you might just regret getting the wheels, probably not. g

    I think that is one of the sweetest pictures of your dogs that you have ever posted (and that’s saying something). I’ll have to pop over and see his blog!

  13. Nichole says:

    I see the old man is turning in to quite the unruly teenager, eh?

  14. Dianne says:

    It’s wonderful that he is feeling so naughty and frisky! Go Mugsy!

    Wait until Mugsy gets his wheels. You won’t be able to keep up.
