And I wouldn't want to disappoint you!
We're chugging along with school, the yard is looking better, and the weather has been lovely for walking, though cool (by my standards) for sitting outside with a book. But sitting outside with a book, with a mischievous puppy and a cat eager to take refuge in one's lap, isn't conducive to reading anyway, so the chill doesn't much matter. And it is, as I said, really lovely out.
Finny loves this red can cap.
And this cat.
Heck, Finny loves just about everything!
These are my new cookies. That is, I found an old recipe for peanut butter cookies (peanut butter, sugar, egg) which I can eat, because they have no flour. I can't actually eat more than one, or maybe two, because of the sugar, but still! Finny can also eat them, and likes them very much, but he doesn't get more than a nibble because, as I tell, him the sugar is bad for his teeth. He reminds me that we brush his teeth, but I am firm.
And here I am being firm about his nails. Having his nails clipped is one of the few things Finny does not love. Even a little. He does, however, love the treats that go with nail trimming. (Proper puppy treats, not my peanut butter cookies.)
He chewed on me enough to earn a headlock. Poor lamb. Those little teeth are sharp!
Here he is, begging the documentary photographer to send help!
"If I give her sweet kisses will she keep persecuting me?"
Yes, she will!
And here is Travis with Finn.
Finny, unlike Travis and Katie, has never met a fruit or vegetable he didn't like! Okay, I lie. Just a little. Tonight I gave him spinach and iceberg lettuce, and, after giving both of them a sincere effort, he decided that Finnys don't like spinach and iceberg. They do, however,
He reminds me to take very frequent breaks to go outside.
Katie also got him this lovely sombrero! We think he looks great in it, but he says he wants to save it for Halloween. Or eat it.
