Is that one of those dogs that is smaller than my cat?

 

I like him (her?) and the determined stare-down at whoever is taking the picture. I can just hear the angry telepathic dog voice: "Where. Is. My. TREAT!?!?"

OMG So cuuuuuuuuttttteee!!!!!

 
 

 

 

 

And how spending time with said purse did at Lake Geneva is clearly indicative of his affiliation worth the oppressive ruling class.

And that my ridicule of Laghail's tiny dog and my previous mention of "The D" create a perfect opportunity to elaborate on the important link between post modern thought and feminism. 

 

At four lbs, Elsie is smaller that most cats, but she has never been shy about trying to bully the critters twice or more her size. She's a mixed yorkie/biewer yorkie that we got back in April from an Indiana breeder. The German Yorkie sire means she's not show quality and therefore we could afford the little monster. Mrs Laghail and I got her certified as an ESA for both of us, and we're training her towards the Therapy Dogs International (TDI) test requirements so she can visit the Children's Hospital in Milwaukee. With Mrs Laghail's fragile immune system, we are having second thoughts about the reality of bringing Mrs Laghail to a hospital any more than her medical needs require, even to visit sick kids, but we've really enjoyed the visits with Elsie to retirement communities; a wheelchair circle of 20 retirees all began beaming as the little fuzzball took a turn on each persons lap and thoroughly cleaned their face and fingers.

Also, an update on the treat situation in Lake Geneva: between two baristas and a pharmacy tech, the city redeemed itself with Elsie's Sunday haul of 6 milk bones, each the size of her foreleg. While Mrs Laghail was in meetings, we passed the time eating the milk bones (Elsie), drink coffee (me) and shitting in front of the display of playboy bunny memorabilia display case (both of us). We're both feminists.

As for the ruling class, @Br0din has observed that his bichon is definitely a socialist - believing that as a tiny dog, he's entitled to a life of luxury from the toil of others. Elsie is more a paws-on type of oppressor though, less a socialist and more a tiny feudal lord.

A lot smaller than my cats, but she definitely seems to be their equal in attitude. Which makes sense considering she's a terrier.

 

Still, I would advise against introducing her to my cats. They actively hunt anything that is smaller than they are, and I'd hate to see them get hurt. :)

You can't just benefit from the stress mitigation of a dog's emotional labour and then alienate them from that labour as you use your lower stress levels to earn the income that provides for them. I didn't think I would ever say this, but I'm siding with the bichon.

I would love to do the same with our dog, but with his levels of enthusiasm, his size to weight ratio and, well, osteoporosis, i don't think it would be a good idea.

 

"Zoomies" is what they call it:

 

 

Hah! Yes!! that's exactly it! And I think this test has a weight limit. For that reason.

Courting the Yellow Ajah

 

Mrs Laghail got pretty sick so we laid low during the three day weekend. Highlights include all the sleeping, eating still on point, making lots of progress on a Van Gogh puzzle (did anyone realize he used a lot of different shades of blue? Like, a lot?)

We have a Van Gogh puzzle (Sunflowers) that took us so long and was so boring/frustrating (the puzzle not the art) that it is the one puzzle we just gave up on and threw back in the box. So yes.

Pics later, it's starry starry night and there's enough of a difference in the quarters of the piece that it's possible. It's fairly rewarding too, staring at the brush strokes up close and seeing the different feels of the different blues.
