Okay, I guess I might as well confess, even though most of you have probably figured this out.
When I’ve had a really busy day, or my writing synapses suddenly stop firing, I bombard you with Wonderbutt pictures. School started today – so I had my first day, Dimples started middle school (and piano lessons), and Wonderbutt was suddenly abandoned after a summer of constant companionship. It was stressful on all of us 😦
These Pictures are Copyrighted, So Please Do Not Steal Them to Put on Your Own Holiday Cards. You Know You Want To.
Something tells me that some of you might need a pick-me-up today, so I decided to spare you the riveting post that I originally planned that gave intriguing details about my unfortunate habit of dropping the floss container daily, causing the inner contents to fly across the room, forcing me to comb the territory of our bedroom/bathroom until I find it, and then taxing my already weakened mental capacity as I attempt to force the contents back in while Cap’n Firepants calmly opens his bathroom cabinet and begins to use his own floss that has never been dropped or taken adventurous trips to the land beneath our bed. At least he thinks it hasn’t. It’s quite possible that someone switched the jinxed floss container with the pristine one in his cabinet. But I can’t imagine who would do a passive-aggressive thing like that.
Instead of that electrifying story, I decided to regale you with some pics from my latest photo session of the Butts – formally known as Wonderbutt and Mrs. Pain in the Butt. I had some vague notion that I might be able to use the photos for a family Christmas card. But this is becoming more and more unlikely as other priorities, such as repairing Wonderbutt’s latest damage to my winter coat, keep getting in the way.
I would like to preface this display by stating, although Wonderbutt went to Puppy Kindergarten and learned very well how to “Sit” when so requested, he never learned how to “Stay Sitting Long Enough for Me to Take a Good Picture”, so our photo sessions sound like this, “Sit. Good dog, Wonderbutt. Good dog, Mrs. P.I.B. No, stay sitting, Wonderbutt. Sit. SiT! SIT! No, do not come over here and try to eat the camera! Good dog, Mrs. P.I.B. Come back over here by Mrs. P.I.B., Wonderbutt. Do not eat her collar. Sit. Good. I’m backing up slowly now. Stay sitting. S-T-A-Y sitting. Good. I’m slowly moving the camera. Sit. Good. #@!$%! Wonderbutt. Where the #$!! are you going?…” So on, and so forth. I think you get the idea.
