Happy Thorsday, little friday, thankful thursday and more. Sissy pulled some sort of royal veto on the post I’d composed for their blog today, so I could pretend I’m cranky about it, but actually, I’m proud of her. We’d all agreed that with only one entry per household for Mango Minster this year, Sissy should defend her title. A bit to my surprise, Sis is pretending she believes her best chance is in pairing up with her little cutie pie sister, but the truth is that Sis is also Sis-ma, the benevolent. She wants to share the limelight with the wee one!
So to reward Sis for her selfless actions, I’ll share with you some of the other photos of the goofball and her long-awaited tiara.
I call this one simply… MINE. If you know much about hunting dogs and soft mouths, you can see that she’s not BITING the tiara… she’s just taking it in her mouth. Not a bead was even moved a hair, nothing was scratched… she just wanted to hold it in case (as she rightly guessed) I was going to put it away.
The other photo for your entertainment is her “I’m eating snow in my tiara” pose. Well no, it’s not a pose. This is for all of you who think I torture my dogs and make them wear clothes and crowns. Hardly. I respect their preferences; Sissy likes headwear and hates clothes. Gretchen loves clothes and hates anything on her head. In fact, I had to yell at Sis because she fully intended to go on out in the pen and do… who knows what, while wearing her tiara.
Thankful? I’m thankful as can be that I have these two precious fur-girls to keep us on our toes, to keep us laughing. I’m thankful for a spouse who orders a special pink reflective “shirt” for the wee one, who just laughs and tries to reason with her when she won’t let us take the “shirt” off of her. (What can I say?! The girl likes pink.)
I’m so thankful that we made it one year and counting with Sissy’s remaining right eye. I’m thankful for the people who made that possible, from the vets to each of you who has offered support.
What are you thankful for today?
