Site News: Adam Does Something Crazy

So, things have been a little quieter than usual here for the past few weeks. It’s because I’ve been really busy doing… well… a whole lot of things. One of which was utterly crazy even for me: I just went and bought an RV.

It wasn’t entirely spur-of-the-moment; I’ve been thinking about it for ages, for some specific reasons which I’m not going to get into on here. And I’m planning on spending about three months in the midwest, so it made sense to do it now. It’s just that everything ended up being very rushed and crazy and, er, expensive. And crazy. And did I mention expensive?

I’ll share some photos of her on a Sunday Switchup, hopefully this coming Sunday (if she isn’t at the repair shop over the weekend!) I call her the Lummox, after a surprisingly similar — except much less comfortable — vehicle that I designed for a role-playing game I played some time ago. Crazy how life imitates art sometimes.

Dog of the Day: Shayna the Havawort

Yes, it’s not a great picture. But this one is for Elizabeth, who asked if we’d heard of the breed, and I discovered that I had never posted one.

Plus, this has a picture of Shadow, who is an old friend of the blog. She’s the one with her nose buried in Shayna’s tummy.

So it’s funny: Havaworts basically look like two-tone golden retrievers. Golden retrievers have a gene called ‘recessive red’ which prevents them from showing any black on their bodies (except nose and lips and claws and a couple other places). I wonder if this is what some golden retrievers would look like if they didn’t have that gene?

Took this picture in 2015, still remember where and when and with whom. Why can I remember that, but not where I put down my wallet 30 seconds ago?

Dog of the Day: Frogs the French Bulldog

Frogs the French bulldog(s?) is one year old, and glorying in his newfound privileges as an adult dog.

Is it too much to ask that I get to spend some time this happy without indulging in illicit substances?

Sunday Switchup: Century Electric

I love the phone number. Which century are they referring to, do you suppose? And as far as ‘UNderhill’, do you think they mean hobbits? Or ‘the fairies under the hill’?

Caturday Supplement: Marmie At Rest

This kitty isn’t always riding on people’s backs.

Edit: I didn’t notice, she has an M (for Marmalade!) on her forehead!

I am constantly amazed at how seldom spills happen at KitTea. Let alone broken crockery.

Dog of the Day: Flippity Floppity Finn the English Setter

Finn is one year old, and he is both flippity and floppity! That is why his instagram account is @flippityfloppityfinn. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to go there, and check out his assortment of puppy pictures and schnozz schotts. Because they. Are. GLORIOUS.

English Setter Looking Serious And Soulful

There’re a lot of pictures online of dogs with photoshopped-in human teeth. This pup didn’t need them photoshopped in, he just needs Invisalign!

That expression says everything you need to know about Finn.

Dog of the Day: Lionel the Miniature Australian Shepherd Puppy

I decided to go back in my archives a bit and find a pup I hadn’t posted. Lionel was 8 months old when this was taken, about a year ago. And he was huge for a mini Aussie! I wonder how big he is by now.

Oh, those ears. Don’t you just want to twiddle them?

I think he was named after Lionel Hampton.

Sunday Switchup: Let Her Eat Cake

One of our office employees had a birthday. We had a cake.

Amazing what they can do with an inkjet printer these days.
