Dumb Ass Dog

attempted to eat our roommate today.
Apologize Epic.

*Me? What? No. Never happened.*
I swear to doG... some days I just want to string him up by his toes and let little kids tickle him.
*Mmm... maybe a little sorry. Yup, feelin' some sorrys over here. No tickles please... kthnxbai.*
If he keeps going like this, I'm going to get a lot of use out of that "Bad Puppy" label.

Don't even THINK

about waking that puppy. You'll make God cry.
I swear, I SWEAR to you dear blog readers.... this dog has not had a nap in a week. A whole week. A week the included offleash walks and not one, but two, TWO, flyball practices. A whole week of nice weather for outside zoomies and nothing has tired this boy out. We play. He plays. He barks and torments the other dogs. He barks and torments ME. My cute little puppy is an adolescent, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to strangle his cute little self.
I miss the way he used to run and run and run, and then fall over exhausted and sleep for 3 hours. I miss how 1o minutes of ball throwing and a little bit of training would put him in a little puppy coma.
Mostly, I miss my sanity.
Do NOT be fooled by those eyes! He does NOT want to cuddle with you. He wants to lure you close, and then eat you.

10 Months!

Epic was 10 months old yesterday! Happy Birthday big Epic boy!
I didn't get any really fantastic photos to mark the occasion as there is sucky light inside, and the mountains of snow outside make everything look sorta blue.
Epic wishes I had marked the occasion with cake, not pictures.
*Mommy's suck*
We got outside today for some photos, but it ended up being a series of FAIL.
Cute fail, but still fail.
We thought maybe we'd play some stick instead.
*Why'd you throw thish schtick away? Thish a good schtick*
Random booger interlude:
Mmm... tasty.
AND... to end off the play session outside, the near demise of my camera.
*Close enough now, Miss BossyPants?*
I'm still in a holding pattern with my thesis waiting for the list of revisions to make it back to me. I figure this down time sort of makes up for the abandonment issues the dogs were suffering while I was finishing up the writing. Everyone got my attention out in the yard this morning (playing stick! And cleaning up nasty things), now we're settled in for some naps that may or may not suck me in. It is very hard to keep one's eyes open when everything around you is snoring.

These Last Two Weeks

Have been HELL.
Hi Guys! Sorry about the lack of posts lately. I've JUST finished up the first draft of my thesis so I'm back!
Epic has suffered from my lack of attention in these last couple weeks. In some ways I'm sure he's enjoying it... he has gotten either a stuffed Kong or RMB almost everyday this past two weeks, as well as some rawhide chews. Other than those perks, he probably misses the attention. I can tell this, as he is DRIVING ME NUTS finding his own things to do.
One of my less-than-favorite-moments was this:
What's this? Look harder.
It's a McDonald's bag that happened to blow up the street and cause the little JRT to SCREAM bloody murder and hurl himself at the window over, and over, and over again until I was able to wrestle him away and into his crate.
And because I am TRUELY blessed, the moment I let him back out the $%#ing bag blew back down the street, attempting to escape in the other direction.
Other than that, Ep has spent the nice days playing outside with his brothers:

Dixie has also been suffering the 'Tash has abandoned us in favor of her career' boredom.

There was no saving the toy.

We've been Deliquent

And we will continue to be deliquent for a little bit longer.
To which Epic says:
