June puppy-sits. Also? Puppies. They move around a lot.

I am watching my coworker TinaDoris' puppy this weekend. Her puppy is named Penny. I don't know why, because she seems to have no cents. BAH.

TinaDoris and her fiance are going to historic Williamsburg for the weekend. I told them to bring me back a rich old man. When TinaDoris was considering getting a puppy, she said, "What will we do with a dog when we travel?" and I said, "I'll ALWAYS dog-sit! ALWAYS!" You know how I am.

I knew my dogs would be okay with it once they got past the hour and  72 minutes of barking and jumping up and down and Occupying Greensboro.

I never thought I'd see the day that Edsel seemed mature and dignified. I still haven't seen that day. But he seems one rung down from the usual idiot that he is.

And you know who is pleased that I took this gig?

Roger.

And you may be asking, "What about Anderson?" Please. Anderson who. Although he did get on his usual spot last night, which is right behind me on top of the couch, but as soon as he saw that puppy, he made haste and plans to exterminate anyone under the age of four months in this dwelling.

Roger, instead of just hiding angrily somewhere, has growled nonstop for 12 hours. rrrrrrrrmmmmmm. It's like he's got a battery all of a sudden.

Pleased.

And who wants to be nothing but friends with him? "pennee love grrring dog! come say hi to–ow!" She never catches on.

100_0576why dog wif claw have vendeta?

Also, Penny came with her own toys, which of course my dogs took from her, resulting in her taking their toys, which made them mad so they got their toys, then she took HER toys, then they took her toys away and OH MY GOD is this what it's like to have kids? Because let me just pen a thank-you to my tubal ligationist right now.

  1. Glam Granny Annie!! Congrats!!! The grandbabies are da’ bomb!!! –God’s compensation for all the grief and madness{ref. yesterday’s comments}to get to this time of our lives! Excuse the 9,438,999.99 exclamation points;I’m excited about a new baby in the BBP fam!!!!!!:)
    And that “Go ahead make my day. Feeling lucky, punk?…Well are ya’?” on Roger’s face is the reason why I’m really not a catten type person. If I had one, he would prolly suck all the breath outta of my body if I EVER slipped off to sleep…

  3. Roger has mastered the perfect balance of skepticism and annoyance. Tallulah looks so mature. If she had a bubble over her head it would say, “Seriously. Kids these days…”
    Yay for the new babies!!

  4. I remember yesterday smelling like Play Doh, but funeral homes? My soon to be apartment is owned by the funeral home next door. It is an 1800’s home that has nice front yard and a parking lot and a hearse out your back door.
    This is currently where my daughter lives. At times she can dress somewhat, um, creatively. With her red and black hair and her dramatic eye makeup. When the mourners get a load of her stumbling out in the parking lot, the phrase “raising the dead” crosses their minds.

    Duffy Lou, you’re talking about the daughter who went with you to Hulkapalooza? She looked like fun.

  9. Amish Annie-congrats to all!
    Ever since your new title was bestowed, I’ve had that old song “Poke Salad Annie” playin’ in ma hayed-
    Glam Grammy Annie-
    Sure don’t LOOK like no granny-
    Guess you could say it was clear sailin’,
    when baby Guy came out and started wailin’,
    for Glam Grammy Annie-
    (maybe he was confused- “whose hoots are for me?”)
    Oh, I love that sweet baby scent!

  11. That puppy is as cute as a button and Roger is getting more handsome by the day. I still love me some Lu and Ed… and you scared me with all the low Vitamin D and flu shot drama rama and a possible side effect??? oh NO.
    That sent me off to Google “my back hurts vitamin D deficiency flu shot” because since the weekend I have been getting horrible back spasms. And last Friday I had a flu shot at work …and I take 150MG of Levothyroxine every day for my VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY. …my sister said I should steal my daughter’s mattress outta her room (since she moved to campus and left me all alone) and try that… yeah now I’m instantly better. I am not dying from flu shot + low Vitamin D complications.
    Damn.

  12. oh that was wrong. Correction: I take one huge Vitamin D pill once a week because I need it and my Levo. since I have no thyroid. OK now I feel better, not that anyone will read this.

  13. PJ, sorry my phone missed your comment. Yes, earlier I was referring to my (only) daughter. She is my vacation buddy and traveling companion. We do have a great time together. She and her fiancé are moving into the upstairs of a double house and I will be moving into her vacated apartment. Unfortunately, this will put an end to our vacationing for a while.
