Scallywag, Fudge & Macey

(Katy with Scallywag and Fudge, and Fudge, Tamale, & Macey)

Oh how behind I get on the blogging. We've Scallywag, then Scallywag with Fudge, then just Fudge and then Fudge and Macey. It's always a doggie party here. Needle Noses: Scallywag, Fudge, Macey

I've also had some minor issues with my own Tamale. Clearly this isn't my fault. No way. Hey, if she does this once a month, it won't kill her or make her a meany. We've had her for 2.5 years and she's been up with me on the Womb or couch all of 5 times. I still think this is Mark's fault! Needle Noses: Tamale's been bad!

Bye to Jack, & 'Lo to Pearl

I have to make this quick!
We're going through dogs so fast. There aren't many cat homes for fostering, so once they get used to the cats, they often get sent to another foster family so another dog can leave the kennel. It's not as slick as it is in the U.S., but I love that all the volunteers know each other or know of each other.

We lost Jack (who was thrilled that Italy beat France, but Tamale was still sore about Germany) to another foster family who had his brother. But we got Pearl in return. She's a laaaaady! Needle Noses: Bye to Jack and 'Lo to Pearl

You'll be able to see from the photos that she is most delicate and feminine. She also drives Tamale wild. Tamale is not bi-sexual, she's bi-attracted. Let's not fool ourselves. NO one is t o come near her booty. No one. But she does fancy both the ladies and the boys. Pearl is getting spayed Monday. Whew! Tamale is finding her scent wildly alluring. It doesn't bother us in theory, but straight or gay, dog or human, please don't hump in front of us during My Name is Earl and Lost. We don't watch much telly, but what we do watch we take seriously!

'Ats da Facts, Jack! (two Jack posts in one)

We said good-bye to Dexter and a re-hello to Jack.
Jack has issues. He's funny and totally adoptable, but he's not without a few issues. Seems he was a good runner, but didn't want to hang with other dogs. He's still that way. He's a solo boy. Very shy. ...but playful. He's a big tail wagger as he tries to decide if he should come to you or run and hide.

I don't know how many we've done since we started fostering.... 25+? It's one reason I try to blog this. I don't want to forget any foster.... or at least I wanted a way to revisit them. I'm losing count. ... like I lost count of all the men who wanted to live with me forever. I lost count right after one.

He's also not much of a World Cup fan, unlike Tamale. Needle Noses: Not Quite a World Cup Fan

Jack is camera shy. Getting him to pose or stay still is like pulling teeth. He has no respect for my need to show off his eye liner and his charcoal-kissed mouth.
He does like his toys, though. Sometimes he comes out of hiding just to steal toys from Tamale... or my knitting! Needle Noses: Get Back for a Jack attack!

Time to do laundry. You know it's chore time when I start blogging.

Dexter says ciao!

I've been lazy. Yes, and doing dishes is all part of my grand scheme of laziness.

Just a few reports on Dexter. It looks like he's leaving this weekend. He should go to his forever home and Tamale will play tart with her grey friends at Brooke's place (she's sort of a greyhound party mom.... has a few grey pets and welcomes Tamale when we leave town.... and I think she supplies them treats I don't... all very suss!).

Mark and I are off to skip and sashay around the Gold Coast and call it a marathon. I skip. He sashays.

I'm going to be link lazy as I want to go to bed soon. Both stories can be found here: Needle Noses Main Page. HabanOHNO and Dexter gets an A+ on independent study are his last posts.

HabanOHNO involves a very dangerous pepper.

A+ are his last photos and, as this is a family blog I feel I must warn our younger members, there is some hot dog luvin!

Management can not be held responsible if your dog humps your leg.

Tamale in panties! Jonesy poops! Dexter rests.

I like how the lavender brings out the pink of Tamale's belly. Who says ruined undies can't be used for some blogging fun? I cut a hole in them for her tail. She wore them all of 4 minutes. I can't put her through that much torture. It's not really torture if it's Pink Panther boy cuts.

So, blackhead update, splatter poo, babysitting Jack, and our new dog from the vet school... DEXTER!

I'd like to just say that you can't escape things. I mentioned in the running blog about my iPod escaping or trying to escape death. Now it's pet humiliation.....

Needle Noses: Doggie Girly Shots

Now I spent too much time mucking about with my templates. I was behind on too many things. Time for bed. Thank goodness the queen is being celebrated on Monday. I'd had to have lost this day completely. Whoo hoo! I love a 3-day weekend!
