Me and my buddy Deb from Common Ground had a nice long chat on the phone this afternoon, and the talk turned to our wee little furry children.
It's been a while since I posted some blatantly gratuitous pet pics, and this post exists for no other reason than to make you go "ooooh" and "aaaah" and to getcha all warm and fuzzy all over.
First, the cat.
You've already met Winnie. She's pretty and she knows it. Gets away with bloody murder on pretty much a daily basis.
Yes, you Winnie.
Meanwhile, back on the farm, it's a dog's life...
As seen through the back door...
And so it goes.
Havok and Belle generally get along pretty well. He's the looker on the left, and has the absolute sweetest disposition of any canine on the planet. Belle has jealousy issues, so she tends to act out when she thinks he's getting any extra attention, which is what happened the other day during our first snowfall of the year.
It was only a light dusting, but the dogs were super excited. After all, they're Huskies! These babies had never seen snow! Anyway, I rushed outside with my camera to snap a shot of my husband with the dogs, and....you guessed it. The combination of the excitement of the newness of snow mixed with Havok getting extra attention caused Belle to act out, and she picked a fight with her little brother. It ended the way it usually ends, with sweet Belle the bully getting the fuzzy end of the lollipop, and Havok reluctantly being forced to defend himself. She always comes out on the losing end, but bless her stubborn heart, she never learns!
This is the only pic I managed to get, and it's of Mr. Twig tending to Belle's ear after Havok nipped it in self-defense.
I know she asked for it, but just look at that sad little "Ouch dad, my ear hurts" face!
She's fine now, and has lived to pick on Havok yet another day.
Thanks for indulging my warm and fuzzy side this evening.
Now go give your fur babies a hug and a nuzzle!
