parley view parsnip...

Mondays post about what is going on around my home...

Close but not close enough !

Well huge dust-up around here...
Hamish is upset Watson had his photo on last Mondays post ! He is
rather miffed ! So I had to make sure he got some equal time. You
can see he doesn't know Watson walked in the photo just at the last
moment. Lets just keep it that way. Or maybe he does and is more
miffed !

Hamish has to be with me at all times as close as he can. He has even
tripped me up several times as he walks so close to me. If I move he
is right there, just like a herding dog he pops up and if I stop he
drops down.
We call him my little shadow but stalker is more like it.

When I work at my desk there are lots of pillows around my studio for
their comfort but the one they love the best is right under my desk.
Right now I am working on some torn paper cards. Just finished one
and cleaned up so can start on the next one.

working. . . parsnip
music. . . Drive My Car, The Beatles
I have been playing a lot of older Beatles songs lately.


  1. Hello:
    We think it is perfectly lovely how your dogs are always with you, such wonderful companions even if they do vie with each other for your attention.

    We look forward to seeing the finished paper cards. There never seems to be an idle moment with you. We are such lazy tarts in comparison!

    Yes, sometimes, only The Beatles will do!!

  2. They are so cute! Our 3 pups are under our feet all the time! I've tripped, stepped on them, ugh!

  3. I see a resemblence. Are they related?

  4. They look adorable! And Hamish does look slightly irritated.

  5. As long as he doesn't snap at your ankles as corgis - sheep herders - were trained to do.

  6. They're so cute!

    Hamish is definitely irritated.

    Good to see you at Goodreads!

  7. Jane and Lance...
    I am so glad I sound busy because 2010 and this year has been a rather hard year for me and I think I am quite slug like !
    I must take some photos of the cards.

    Social Frog...
    Watson is fine he is usually in front of me and then backs up as I walk... but Hamish is always around my feet. He sent me crashing in a wall and a slider once chipped two teeth.
    Still love him !

    Watson is a brindled Scottie he is 11 Hamish is a Westie/Scottie mix who is 7 and is always in conflict. His white side (Luke) is always fighting his dark side (Darth Vader).
    They are related by clan.

    He is thinking this the attention I really want and when do I get the chicken strip that is in her hand ?

    Hamish does herd men but more like pulling at the pants and he licks my ankles sometimes as I walk so I guess that is his version of herding. Or he is a lizard ?

    I think he wanted the treat more and really didn't like being up on my desk... but he likes the work desk by the window where he can see where all the wild animals hang out.

  8. You can always trust a person if their pets must be around them. You must be even more awesome in person than you are on your blog. Good post.

  9. Carole...
    Well I have always told my children and friends that I think my dogs like me because to them I look like a big pork chop... or I smell like a T-bone steak ?
    What a wonderful thing to say to me and it came at such a time in my life when I could use a kind word.
    cheers, parsnip
