Remember the adorable cup I ordered ?

This morning I used it.
So wonderful.

 It is not a mug but "fine china", that means very thin.
The way my hands shake, especially this mornings,  I will put the cup with my special
Totoro cups (above) to use as needed on Christmas, Birthday, and the days I just need it.
So very happy.


As always here is your pretty to start the week.

Two of the sweethearts
in a moment of quiet!


cheers,  parsnip, badger agatha and truffles

Square Dog Friday ! Winston

Square Dog Friday 
Best day of the week !

We have been finding out more about Agatha.
She follows me everywhere, has to be near me.
She was a inside dog, not an outside dog as I first thought.
Jumps on chairs and tables.
Likes to go somewhere high like a sofa to eat a treat. 
Sit up on her hind legs and waves a paw to get your attention for food.
Likes to rummage around in the garbage.
Working on her potty training.
She is learning where her dish is and not to eat out of the other dogs dish.

When you live with 18 dogs running around some of this is expected. 
She loves sleeping with iwinston and Truffles on my bed.
My little sweet herd of gud dugs.

let me in !
gone potty need to come in now

need to be near you now

 The door was going to be fixed but Agatha helped.

Famous Surgeon Agatha is operating on a face/eye lift, tummy tuck
and tail lift !




  Finished !

We had a windstorm blow in at 40 mph plus a big drop in temperature .
It was cold for Truffles and Agatha. The wind was really upsetting Agatha.
She and Truffles stayed close to me all day.
iwinston loved it and was sleeping in the sun with the wind blowing
pillows and plants around. He doesn't care, he loves the cold.

My sweet herd of gud dugs ! Agatha, Truffles and of course iwinston.
I luve them.


As always here is your pretty to start the weekend.

It came it came it came, yes it came !
I am so happy !

Coffee will taste even better now !

Yes, so true.
Adopt a gud dug or a cat today !
They will be your best friend.
So many abandon sweethearts need homes.

cheers,  parsnip, badger,
truffles and agatha

Monday sadness.

As I watch the news and read the paper, I am back in
Laguna Beach, California, 27 October 1993 in a car with my children
trying to outrun a wildfire.
We were in traffic going south on Pacific Coast Hwy.
On my left, I could see the fire roaring down the hillside, after the flames
engulfed my home, towards us. To the right I could see the Pacific Ocean.

I told David my oldest to hold on to Adam and Molly run like hell to
jump into the ocean if the fire got close to the Hwy. I would follow.
When I see the news and the photos I am back right back there and I can smell the fire,
I can see the fire.
At the time we were one of the largest fires with losses in California and the US.
It was the start of what is happening right now with wildfire in America.

We were all affected by this fire and carry today much of what happened that day.
Now to change the story. . .
Here is your pretty to start the week.

Lobotomy and facelift in progress.

 tako tako tako has gotten me


 agatha is silly gud dug

cheers, parsnip and badger
