why can't I help?

Gravy was confined to the living room while we painted and he stuck his head under the couch and watched us the whole time.

Roasted nuts!  Crushed nuts!  These nuts were made into a chocolate hazelnut tart (yum!) for Thanksgiving.

attack of the chinese ladybug

These things have infested our house and I'm so freaked out by them.  They smell, they bite, and they just won't die!

table setting

Sara + Chris came for dinner tonight - I need to remember to take pics of my guests instead of inanimate objects!

bed fail #1 (head on, bum off)

Gravy got his first dog bed for his birthday the other day and he doesn't know what to think of it.  For the first few days he was afraid of it and wouldn't touch it - now he's finally started trying to lie on it...but he hasn't quite mastered it yet.

birthday smokies

Gravy turned two and got a birthday treat - little smokies.  They were gone before I could snap the pic.

super fly!

The upstairs office has suddenly become infested with flies.  Gravy snuffed four of them out with his nose in a matter of minutes.

poop shoes

Just about every pair of Larry's shoes has been contaminated and are now relegated to the back porch.  He has a knack for stepping in shit.
