...on the way back

July 25th, 2008 (08:02 am)

Wrapping up a (far too brief) visit at Ma's. For those who've been following me a while, you'll know one of the high points:

DOG. "...boss? Boss?!! OMG BOSS I MISSED YOU."
HINES. "I know, honey. I missed you too."

That is not to say there were not low points. We are, after all, talking about a Very Special Dog.

DOG. "Hi, Boss!"
HINES. "Hi, honey. What're you licking your belly for?"
DOG. "Oh, no reason. I KISS YOU, BOSS!"
HINES. "Aww! Thank you, honey... hey, what're these red bumps on your belly?"
DOG. "Poison ivy! I LOVE YOU, BOSS."
HINES. "...crap."

(It's clearing up nicely, thanks.)

...boy, that's right up there with the beloved habit of licking their butts clean, then promptly walking up to you on the couch and licking all over your face...

Hahaha. Oh, dogs.

Colin decided it would be a great idea to spend an entire day barfing up everything he put into his mouth. We're still not sure what he ate that made him so sick. After a vet appointment where they gave him medicine and put him on an all-liquid diet for 36 hours, he's doing better. He's also discovered The Manna From Heaven, which is the chicken part of the chicken and rice diet he's supposed to be on until he finally poops again. (Yes, my dog now has even more evidence that we're obsessed with his poop.)

Ah, the joy of dogs. All three of ours are being their usual selves. I am convinced that, like chickens and domestic turkeys, cockers are actually animate vegetables. Other than that, all is well.

Oatmeal works wonders on poison ivy.

*lol* Dogs... I'm never sure whether they are more love or more trouble... Mine is currently in heat and rubbing her bloody rear all over the carpet. *facepalm*
And I wish I could translate anything she 'says' into "boss" as well. Anything at all.

It's not just dogs who do the first. Saw this vid earlier and you reminded me with this post: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xr1pWzoLvT8
