i saw this post today (link above, in case you somehow missed it) on BlogPaws and it immediately made me think of desmond--especially the part about chewing instead of fetching. and when i read the part about a puppy-proofed house for a 6-year-old dog, i almost cried. true story. anyway, i thought i'd share it with you all, along with some other semi-random things.
check out this no-stuffing toy with über-cool squeakers
i saw a post about this toy over on the all things dog blog. we need to buy this immediately if not sooner. i haven't had a chance to check out the rest of the Petstages products online, but i surely will be doing that soon. we do already own the ORKA mini flyer and pine cone chew, which desmond seems only semi-interested in, but has played with each a little bit. those are the softish chew toys, which--by the feel of them--we thought he would devour in mere minutes. who can tell what that dude is thinking, ever?
this company also makes the coolest blanket since the snuggie (note: i did not say cooler than the snuggie. this is merely just as cool. nothing is cooler than the snuggie. do you hear me, nuddle & slanket???). this is something that desmond's DBFF kona really needs in her life.
and now for some adorable photos of desmond. (what? that's why you're here, no?)
|this is an outside stairway down to my in-laws' basement. desmond recently stayed at his grandparents' house overnight, and they said he pretty much hung out here the whole time, whenever they were also outside in the yard.|
|naked desmond (aka no collar), up close and personal. this is when he reminds me of falcor or a gremlin or both.|
|trying out for the Flat Stanley lookalike contest, once again. this was at a bar in freeport. that allows dogs. that we will be going back to, for sure. good music & great food & awesome beer & my dog??? YES. E.B. Elliot's is the place.|
|another shot of naked desmond|
that's all for now. big noisy weekend coming up, so we'll see how mr. wonky legs does with the booms and bangs! with any luck, i'll be back tomorrow with a post about some of our recent desmond destruction moments.
