Ruby's First Sippy Cup...... I mean Christmas

Ruby got a sippy cup from Grandma and Grandpa for Christmas.  So we gave it to her this morning with a little water in it to try out.  She's never had plain water before, and she's never had held a sippy cup.  We definitely think she likes it :-)  She's a natural :-)

She loves it!!!   Thank you SOOOOO MUCH!!!

Snowmageddon 2010

The city is officially closed!  For reals!


Thankfully the University is closed again today…so Harold doesn’t have to go to work…which is nice…especially since our water heater stopped working and there is supposed to be a repair person coming this morning…I hate being here by myself with Ruby to deal with repair people….I always prefer Harold is home when I let strangers into the house Smile

Just had to include a cute Rubster pic.016

So, Our poor puppies have been a little neglected in the grooming…and now that winter is here we again have to find a way to deal with the snow getting packed into the hair on their legs …burrrr


You would think that leaving their hair longer…would keep them warmer…right??? Nope…just gives the snow a way to hang on and freeze them even once they’re inside The only way to get it off is to run the whole darned dog under warm water…ummmm every time they pee?  Not going to happen….   006

So we took them to a groomer today…I asked for this cut…and they did an awesome job (Barkingdales on Adelaide… love love love!)…  it’s exactly what we need right now so that they don’t get their hair pulled…the snow doesn’t pack their legs…and the don’t get knots in their hair…buttt…..I wasn’t totally prepared for this.  puppy cuts 001

I couldn’t tell them apart when I got back home this afternoon…it took me awhile and I still have to look for awhile…honestly…right now I tell them apart by the coat I have on them…lololpuppy cuts 002

So…yeah…they left as poor little Yorkies in need of a grooming….puppy cuts 003

And they came back as……CHIHUAHUAS!!!!puppy cuts 008
