Scottie ramp

Square Dog Friday
Best day of the week so lets woof it !

Winston knew I had a cookie in my hand and wanted it first.

I had the ramp built for Hamish when he became so ill.
Plus I didn't want him jumping up on the bed. This is one
of his better days. He used the ramp all the time.
I miss him every day.

 I put openings in the side walls for the cats to play and sleep in  but. . .

 cats being cats. . .
 Merida likes being the Queen !

She loves rubbing her chin on the walls.
Oliver runs under the bed to escape anything. 
He is the true Scaredy Cat !

nice tall person who feeds me is teaching me to selffie
not knowin' what this is but she seems happy when iwinston be doin' this

iwiston is havin' not so very gud time hard to push the button thing'

As always here is your pretty to start the weekend.

I take so many photos of my backyard, looking north at the Catalina Mountains, I forget to show
how nice and lovely the South view is out my Kitchen nook.

cheers,  parsnip and badger

Mia and badger

Mia has learned to give some commands and to give iwinston a cookie.
He is very gentle but has a beard (that drips after drinking water) and she is not use to it.
Yuko was taking this video.

In the words of "the great one" fud gud !


Schools in Japan give vacation homework. They expect it on the first day back unlike many
American schools. My kids used to get so mad when they did the homework but the teachers
just blew it off.
On the days we did not go out early in the morning, Mia did her homework.
One piece of homework was a project.
Mia chose "Sculpey" It is a clay type goop, that you can mold into anything you want
and then bake it in an oven to set.

 Under the colorful flap in the middle of the board
is a surprise.

She always writes in English and Japanese, on her work.
Love love love her drawing of a hedgehog ! She also drew
iwinston, Merida and Oliver.

Love her sweet drawings. My oven has never looked so good or so kawaii.
Here are some of her animals.
Hedgehogs (she used some of my tools to clip the wooden sticks) in their home 
along with a Tucson Lizard.
Her Teachers are alway talking about her uses of color.


As always here is a mid-week pretty.
I so want to go to this Hotel, although I would rather have GODZILLA,
dinosaurs will work in a pinch.
Someone is still on LIZARD Patrol ! 
gud dug badger !

cheers,  parsnip

Mia has turned 8 and is quite an artist. She can draw anything.
She went to a Birthday Party and her gift was a small Shinkansen Bullet Train set.

 I gave her a paper to draw a card. She drew the Shinkansen train.

 The inside of the card.

She even drew his baby sister next to their cat and dog not sure about the deer or tall dog.

Some photos from the week.
This was just over the hill but we did not get any rain.


As always here is your pretty for the start of the weekend.

Yuko and Mia few back to Japan.  
After a month visit we all miss them very much and a Gud Dug really misses Mia !

A photo Mia took of Mt. Fuji from the window of the plane.
She is really becoming a wonderful photographer.
