Hello Again

DSC_0027 copy.jpg

I cannot do a single thing around the house without these two being all up in business.  I thought one shadow was more than enough, but for the past six months I've warmed up to two little shadows watching my every move.  Including when I'm trying to photograph my baked goods in the living room because the natural light is better.  They're all hey what are you doing, are you going to eat that, can I just sniff it, can I, can I, can I???  Maybe this is what being a celebrity feels like?  I'm sure the paparazzi can be just as stinky and equally hairy.  Anyways, I snapped this last week and thought it was just too funny not to share.  Oscar obviously need to comb his beard throughout the day.  Dirty boy!

How To De-Skunk 20lbs. of Dog

I was originally planning on posting the most delicious vanilla cupcake recipe I have found to date, but I cannot site my source at this time.  Don't worry, I have the recipe at home, but I'd like to be able to give to the original baker.  So for now we're postponing that and instead you get to hear about our yucky dogs!

Last week Mr. Goddard and I went to have family dinner at my parents house.  He was meeting my Dad's side of the family for the first time.  Lovely time we were having, good food (as always), wine was flowing and interesting conversation.  My cousin lives up in the hills and is working his way towards a self sustaining farm.  They have several hundred chickens!  Unfortunately that all came to a grinding halt when our dogs bum rushed a skunk in the backyard.  Moses (the littlest one) went for the skunk again and again while Oscar and Otis looked on within the spray zone.  Poor Moses eyes swelled up and he was foaming at the mouth.  It was awful, as I'm sure many of you have experienced.

Luckily, my Mom had just read in the newspaper that skunk sightings were high right now and with it a new recipe was included for for ridding of that AWFUL smell.  Supposedly the old trick of using tomato juice just masks the smell temporarily.  In case you have pets and live in a rural area (even though my parents don't) you might want to write this down.  Isn't being a pet owner such a joy??

Puppy Love

Hi pretty people, I had the pleasure of watching the little furball in front on Saturday.  I wanted to share some of the photos I took because no one needs to see all 28 of them…

Moses is a naughty boy who still marks so Mr. Goddard doesn’t let him come play very often.  While he was helping family move heavy items and make a trip to the dump I had the rare opportunity to spend time with the funny boy.  Since I don’t have a yard I thought the perfect place to go would be my parents so everyone could run, play and get acquainted.

It’s safe to say it was a LOVE fest!  A friend’s schnauzer Baxter, has a love/hate relationship with my Oscar and that started the big game of chase.  At five pounds, Moses was doing a great job of keeping up with the big medium boys.

These two passed out the minute they got in the car and slept with me on the couch for almost two hours!  I know Moses will be asking his daddy to come back again :)
