Sigh, Howdy Ho everybodies.
Its your still waiting for the Musher and Richard to return home stuck at the house not reporting on much of anything non-roving Border Collie, Bet here.
I gotta admit, I'm a bit in the doldrums because all of the excitement is over, there's nothing really to report, or do, except look forward to the Musher coming back home and get some much needed crampy toe massage from the master of all things crampy and massagy, the one and only Richard.
Right now Musher Mark is at work, the remaining Pretty Curly Tails are playing food bowl soccer (Rocket is refereeing, and X is all mad because they are using his house as the goal while he's trying to sleep in it and doesn't appreciate getting smacked on the head with a food bowl while everyone cheers). Cricket is out on patrol... as usual, Bait and Tic are hunting for small woodland creatures, and I'm all alone.
You're probably asking yourself: but what about the herdy bunnies?
Yeah, about that... well, don't be mad at me, but they seemed to get very agitated when the big Iditarod race was over and had nothing to do. Fights started breaking out, they got into the wine collection, some of them broke into the post office/store and an Easter display was vandalized...
"Someone" left out a print out of the American Herding Breed Association calendar of events, and the next thing I know they're gone. I'm pretty sure all 67 of them forged their entries into the competition. I just wanted to give Ms. Jenny a head's up in case she ran into them at one of the competitions... watch out... they cheat and can't hold their liquor.
The good news is that my box arrived from Alaska. My personal shopper, Heather Minion, took some time after the Iditarod started and got me some pretty things for my ensemble collection. Don't worry, I also had Heather Minion pick up some gifts for the others as well.
For Cricket I got this cool bed
Since the Musher planted flowers in the flower pot (I know, how silly), Cricket could use a new bed, so there's nothing that says serious guard dog on duty than a huge dog sleeping in a giant croc shoe bed!
For the Musher, I got this:
I know, the picture is a bit out of focus, but its Moosetard! Get it! When I first say it, I thought the word after "moose" was something else, and I wondered "who would bottle that?" But I get jokes too.
For Musher Mark, I got these sleepy pants
That's all I'm gonna say about that.
For me, Heather Minion (who has an excellent eye for fashion) found this very charming ensemble
Not only is it a coat with a hood, but its got the matching little pants with it!!! To bring the whole ensemble together, she found this amazingly cool pile of booties to mix and match with it.
They look very fleecy and warm for my poor crampy toes. I'm not quite sure about the sign... it says $11.95 for a 5 pack... 5 pack? Is a nose warmer included, because last time I counted, I only had 4 feets.
Anyhoo she also sent me a picture of Wolvie
hehehehe, get it... Wolverine... Wolverine
Oh geez, get a sense of humor Wolvie, I was joking... eesh, finish the Iditarod and now all of a sudden you're all sports star standoffish.
Did I mention that I'm bored? Guess I'll go run around the dog yard another 500 times until Musher Mark gets home.
