Saturday Flashback

I'll be the first to admit that with my hectic work schedule, writing takes a backseat, and when Saturday rolls around I lack the discipline required to create. In this spirit of slack, I offer you a few visual tidbits....




I don't know why this picture of Nigel cracks me up, but it does - and not because Sola has her nose buried in his fruitbowl. I chose not to use photo correction in order to preserve the glowing bug eyes.



Baby Sola. This pic was not staged, but could not sum up the attributes of Sola more perfectly - she is all tomboy. A little pink, a little blue, a little batsh*t.




This one is not as much fun - it's Truffles sporting some bling. Those rings hold metal rods that pass through holes drilled in the bone. She can decimate a paycheck in a hurry.

We had to tighten the nuts daily to bend the leg back in to shape. I'll never eat shish kabobs again.


I'll leave you with this, the essence of a wintery Saturday afternoon.


Harmony.



Happy Saturday!

    She suffered from ALD - angular limb deformity. Her leg was broken as a poppy and was not set. We had to straighten it out. And empty our wallets : )

  20. Love your blog! Edie especially enjoyed the "turd-hat" post. As a human with 3 dogs, two of whom consider the back deck a "poop deck", she found it particularly hysterical! I, a noble bloodhound, found it not quite so amusing...
    We both laughed about walking all the way to Alaska. If you decide to do it, we will invite you over for dinner!

  21. That is the paw-fect couch!

    We love that picture of Nigel, and the one of baby Sola!

    Poor Truffles. We hope that her leg is back to health soon. Extra brown dog kisses and Girlie hugs to Truffles!

  23. Despite you stating you were going to creatively slack off on the weekend, you pounded out a nice photo essay.

    The grin on Nigel's face totally slays me. It's worthy to submit to the Smiling Dog contest over at The Bark magazine. And I wouldn't mess with the green eyes either....good call!
