I hope you can see this picture clearly enough….here’s the background.
We get up real early now, so early that I have to wake up the Finn in the morning to take her for a walk. On this morning,  she wasn’t waking up, and I put her collar on her and she heard that click and jumped off the couch and went right into her STRETCH mode.  Half on the couch, half off.  Nice moves Finn, nice moves!

Mango Minster 2012 Bad Sport Entry

I have to let the judges in on a few things before I start to tell you why Finn is a bad sport.

First, Finn LOVES, and I mean ABSOLUTELY, ABOVE ALL THINGS, LOVES to play fetch.  This is evidenced herehere, and here.

Secondly, Finn does know the command “drop.”  Apparently with everything except a ball. A squeaky, drive everyone in the house crazy, tennis ball.

So, here we go on why Momma thinks Finn is just a bad sport.

Even though Finn loves to play fetch, Finn will not drop the ball, which she has to so Momma can throw it again.  I mean look at the look of death Finn is shooting me, the Momma, because I want to only take the ball so I can throw it again.

Yep, she makes me pull it from her mouth.

And then, even though she will bring the ball to me, sometimes she makes me chase her around the house before she even lets me get near her to pull it out of her mouth.

Yep, that’s over a full minute of Momma chasing Finn around tables, stairs, the crate, etc.  And the only reason why it ended is because Momma just stopped.
So, there you have it.  Finn is just a bad sport.  At playing her own game none-the-less!!
Good luck to everybody!  

Finn’s Chompers

She makes me laugh for a couple of reasons…

– I have to hold the hoof-thing for her.
– While she is laying down in her night-time sleeping place
– And look at those chompers!

Oh, Finn!

True Color Thursday – Tomato Red

This week’s challenge was Tomato Red.  Oh, did I have fun snapping this pictures around the office building!

I mean, seriously, the folks inside the office watching me take a picture of the exit sign – they think I am crazy!

And look at that – two reds in one shot!

And finally, we had to creatively place a can of tomato soup somewhere.  But, I don’t like tomato soup, so I used an alternative, tomato sauce.  My grandmothers would be rolling in their graves if I knew I kept jars of this stuff at home and didn’t make it from scratch, so please, don’t share this with too many people!  
This is how I have been leaving the house lately, and those are my maternal grandparents in the background.
Miss you two.  You wouldn’t be smiling if you saw that sauce up close in my house!

Simple Pleasures

Is that a smile I see???


Lookie What Happened Here Last Night!
