Lexi, Lexi, Lexi…

Where do I even begin?

I’ve discussed here the trouble in taking her to the vet.  She whines the whole time and jumps up on us and is generally just a crybaby.  I don’t blame her, she’s had a lot of issues and has had to be poked and prodded almost every time we’re there.  Most visits usually start out with her leaving a fresh little nugget on the scale or floor.

Saturday she may have gone over the line. 

We’re not sure but Lexi may or may not have left a trail of poop leading into PetSmart. (And someone clear this up for me: Is it Pets MART or Pet SMART?) I’m sorry I’m sharing this with you, but this was a tramatic event in my life.

My husband and I have been going through our memory bank like the Zapruder film.

Here’s the facts: We walked into PetSmart, took her directly to Banfield, a corgi tried to greet her at a cash register, I turned to look at the corgi because they’re oh so cute, I don’t remember seeing a poop trail when I turned around, no other dog the size of Lexi was in the store that we know of, we left her at the vet, turned to walk out and a guy was putting up caution signs because it looked like a clydesdale had walked through there.

If it was indeed her, she didn’t even break stride!  If it was her she never let on that she had pooped.  How could a dog possibly let that much out without someone noticing?

Needless to say I was embarrassed and humiliated.  Mainly because if I had known (and if it was in fact her) I would have cleaned it up.  No one should ever have to clean up that mess. 

And who knows, maybe it wasn’t her.  I’m trying to forget that it even happened.  In fact, I hope you all forget this post even happened.

I’ll tell you what’s awesome. Well first it would be awesome if I used the correct punctuation in my title–hello question mark!

But the second most awesome thing is when your sweet, cute, fat dog named Lexi decides to bite a house guest.


(Doesn’t she look like a monster?)

Poor John (house guest) chose the wrong time to walk in front of her.  Just like a crocodile she struck.  Luckily she didn’t draw blood.  She spent most of the rest of the weekend sucking up to John, me and the hubby to try to win us over.  

I’m not really sure how to react to her biting someone.  It’s like finding out your kid bit another kid in the nursery. (Ok, that’s a true story–when I was a baby I got bit in the back by another baby in the nursery!  I think he was just flirting with me–I was such a cute baby!)  You can’t hold a grudge, but you can’t just ignore the fact that she bit someone.  DOG WHISPERER I NEED YOU!

Now this pup…


She was a perfect angel.  Other than the fact that her seat kept getting taken she enjoyed tolerated company. 

Maybe someday something will actually happen with a human being so I don’t have to write about my dogs EVERY TIME! 

 I actually have a really funny toilet story but it’s even too gross for me to write about.  We’ll just leave it at-the toilet wouldn’t flush in a public restroom so I had to take matters into my own hands…

This is the look I get when I yell at Lexi to stop eating poop in the backyard.  And by eating poop in the backyard I mean poop that is literally falling out of her sister’s (Sadie’s) rear-end. 


I guess food tastes better the second time around.  Although I have to give her props–the other day she licked daddy’s face and I just hear, “OH YOU JUST ATE POOP DIDN’T YOU?!”

Now THIS is the look I get from Sadie when I am making a turkey trail to get her to come inside when I am ready for BED DANGIT!!  I should not have to lower myself to hiding behind a door, making a trail of lunch meat, and the minute she walks in through that door slam it behind her and scream, “IN YOUR FACE SUCKA!!” When I’m sure she’s thinking, “Hey, I’m the one eating turkey and treats right before bed–and you don’t eat after 9 is that right?  Yeah, you’re the SUCKA!”

I Heart {Dog} Faces…


By popular demand my entry for the I Heart Faces contest is this one:



I’m pretty sure she was in the midst of rolling her eyes at me for taking yet ANOTHER picture!  But I love her in spite of her being a turd sometimes! 

 EDIT: Lexi didn’t make the cut! Maybe next Pet photo contest! Don’t tell her though!

Maybe tomorrow I’ll have something other than dog pictures to share.

I Need Help, Sort Of…

Have you heard of I Heart Faces?  It’s a wonderful photography blog.  It has great tips and a contest every week!  This week they’re including pet pictures and you know I have to get involved!  I can’t quite decide which one/ones to submit.  Give me your opinion please!


(Not dandruff, just snow!)





Maybe not the most intelligent looking picture but it’s cute!

The theme is “The eyes have it” so that’s why a majority of the pictures are just facial pictures.  Because we already know they both win in the “best bodies” category!

Update: I have to be honest that I’m having the most trouble because I feel like I am leaving one of the dogs out by not including them! How sad is that?  I’m pretty sure they won’t know…

By the way if you’re visiting from Dogmark–welcome and thanks for stopping by!  They selected me for their Cool Dog Site of the Day!

SNOW DAY!  Well, it’s more like an ICE DAY.  But I’ll take it. Either way I didn’t have to go to work.  And the fact that there’s ice in Oklahoma, well it of course has become a state wide crisis. In fact it’s become a STATE of EMERGENCY.  Like I said, whatever gets me out of working for a day!  Needless to say I have SEVERAL pictures of my children to show you.  Here goes nothing…


Lexi sort of looks like a ghost dog


Sadie with her ball–of course.


A rare shot-Lexi in action!

Sadie running…nothing new there.


Lexi’s snow covered paws!


Lexi wasn’t too sure about the sleet.


Sadie was pretty much bitter in every picture. And she’s turning grayer by the day!


I think Sadie’s part Shiba Inu.  Do you think it’s worth $300 to find out?


Lexi fell into the Hollywood lifestyle. I found her with white powder all over her nose.

By the way, I got nominated for an Okie Blog award for Most Unusual Blog!  I’m not sure if that’s a compliment or not but I’m just excited to be nominated!  I would link for everyone to go vote for me but you have to be an Oklahoma blogger to vote so I won’t waste everyone’s time.

People, I am better!  Thank goodness for the healing power of NyQuil–saved my life!  I really appreciate all the well wishes and they truly made me better!  Your kindness healed me…

I am hoping to be back to regularly scheduled programming this week but I’m done making empty promises.  I’ve betrayed you all too many times. 

I’m just going to share a few pictures with you from Friday night:


Starts out innocent (my husband’s eating fyi)


Sadie laying on the charm to get food…

Slowly losing patience…


“High fiving” dad…


“Kneading” dad. If she’s not getting food then he’s gonna pay.

This ladies and gentlemen is my biggest regret.  Somehow teaching Sadie to high five has turned into her ripping us to shreds if she doesn’t get what she wants.  She’s such a spoiled brat…


And Lexi says hi too.

This post will be full of pictures that you all probably don’t care about. I’m doing it for my own enjoyment and so when my dogs grow up they can look back at this post and remember what pesky dogs they were.  Oh dogs can’t read? Or recognize their own pictures? Hmmm…I don’t believe you!

I probably tried for 30 minutes with the husband to get the dogs to sit in front of the Christmas tree for five seconds so I could take a picture.  Did that happen?  Of course not–we all knew the answer to that! Here are the out takes:


Already starting off great considering one of the “dogs” happens to be my husband.



Mom had to get involved and as you see it’s going great…I love how I’m pointing to under the tree like the dogs have any idea as to what’s going on.



Bribing with cheese popcorn…I mean I would pretty much do ANYTHING for cheese popcorn.

This is about as close as it got to BOTH being somewhat close to under the tree.


I decided to try a different take on things.



APPARENTLY the dogs have a problem with wreaths around their necks…

So I tried one last thing…



A simple snowman prop.  A little tempting for both of them. 

Out of about fifty pictures I got three decent (and I use the term decent very loosely) pictures:


This is Sadie’s best–sad I know.


Lexi’s best–which is actually sort of comical.

And the winner for best group shot?


Lexi looks confused, Sadie is SUPER happy (look at that toothy grin!) and Frosty down there is cautiously optimistic…

ARE KIDS REALLY EASIER THAN DOGS?!  I could believe it after this fiasco!

I feel old.  Really old. I am sitting here on a Friday morning sore.  My right arm hurts.  I wish I could sit here and tell you that I got off my lazy behind and worked out.  But I didn’t–it is the holidays for heaven’s sake! 

Ladies and gentleman (I’m pretty sure other than my husband no man reads this), I am sore from playing Wii.  Not HOURS of Wii mind you.  A whole 30 minutes of it.  And that’s stretching it time-wise.  And I wish I could tell you that it was from something vigorous like Wii Fit or boxing.  But it was a light game of couples tennis.  I could barely lift it to put on my sweater this morning.

Also, since when is 9:30 considered late?  When did THAT happen?  I mean in college I would stay up all hours of the night and STILL make my 8am classes.  Now I go to bed at 10:30 and can barely get up for work.  I am crying a little inside.  Pouring one out for my former, young self.  It’s a sad, sad day…

What kind of activities make YOU feel old?


I think Lexi’s thinking I look pretty old too. Look at that shocked look in her eyes.  Either that or I’m threatening to eat one of her beloved treats if she doesn’t cooperate!


And please ignore the coats, deodorant, perfume and any other item that is randomly seen in the background of this picture.  Sadie’s just as embarrassed as I am.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone for the camera advice yesterday!  I decided to just stop being a wuss and just play around with it.  Like someone in the comments said–it’s not going to bite me!  So I’m working on it!

You know, eating is such a fun thing for me.  I love to eat. I love to eat A LOT.  We went out to celebrate Moustached Lauren’s birthday last night.  I ate so much.  I had the biggest chicken fried steak ever.  I didn’t take a picture (can I even call myself a true blogger when I didn’t take a picture??!) But lets just say there wasn’t much of the plate showing.  Well, being the dainty young lady I am, I downed the whole thing before anyone had come close to finishing their meal.  Before I’d finished Eric, Lauren’s husband, said “You will NEVER finish that.” To which Moust. Lauren and my sweet husband said, “You obviously don’t know her…she’ll have it done in no time…” And I did!  As I was downing this delicious, golden-fried goodness we were talking about getting in shape to go to the beach in the spring. Lauren and I could not stop laughing at the thought of my hubby mistakenly going into Curves wanting to start working out…

…Ok, just so you know I spent the last hour trying to fit my husband’s head on some lady who was wearing a Curves shirt. Not his actual head-a picture of his head on the picture of a lady…

But I digress, I also did my husband proud by eating the largest piece of cake out of all four of us. And as I am typing this I am actually HUNGRY!  Thanks dad for giving me a bottomless pit for a stomach!

What’s one thing you can ALWAYS pig out on??


And you know there’s really nothing more fun than watching husbands play Wii on your birthday…


I especially like this picture because it looks like they’re both taking a whizz.


Blowing the candles on the cake that she actually had to MAKE HERSELF.  Does that sound familiar to any women?? 

Sadie was in an interesting mood last night.  It seems that she was highly offended at the placement of a plate by the fireplace. 

(Just bear with all the pictures…)





sadiebarkingAnd that’s when dad sneezed and that sent Sadie running which ruined the series of pictures…


And maybe my favorite expression ever from Lexi:
