Quizzes

Question: When are a toy double-decker bus, a 5-lb sack of potatoes and a baseball cap objects of hair-raising terror?













Answer: When they are seen through these eyes. I put the potatoes down on a ledge in the kitchen, and Zoe's rockets fired like Teddy Roosevelt on a big game hunt. One of my kids rolled a Hot-Wheels sized bus across the floor, and she bared her dinky teeth at it, growled like a Beanie Baby Grizzly and promptly ran away. And Lord help you if you walk in from outside with a baseball cap on your head, you burglarizin', good-for-nothin', treat stealin' hoodlum!

Finally, what do you call a Starbucks Frappuccino bottle filled with coffee beans? Well, when it's at my desk at work and I remove the lid, I call that "aroma therapy." Mmmmm! You should try it!

Lol Linda,

at least your dog is sane.

My schnauzer is NUTS! He has a very strange criteria of people he likes/doesn't like. I never know when he is going to be sweet and docile when he first meets someone, or snarl, snap and bite.

But, he doesn't like baseball caps either.

If I never get to meet you, I hope I can at least meet your dog.

My dog just chased off the imaginary animal outside that was eating the catfood. Truth is she sits each night and does this, and it never gets old (to her) The rest of us jump out of our skin. That Zoe is such a cutie! Love, A

Hey Linda, I tagged you on my blog. Even if you're not interested in doing the meme, at least you'll learn 7 more useless thingss about me, as I have an unquenchable urge to exploit myself. Apparently.

PS. I heart Zoe. She's the cutest tiny dog I think I've ever seen. And I don't usually like tiny dogs. :)

Who says you can't be a guard dog when you're not even 5 lbs?

I need to get me a bottle of that!

Linda, I'm not sure how you feel about awards that get passed out in blogdom, but I recently received one that I would like to pass on to you.

Your little doggy reminds me of my little doggy seen here http://astonegatherer.blogspot.com/2008/03/wordless-wednesday.html. He barks at the darndest things! He is scared of floor registers, his reflection in the door, and the reflection of the lights in the window. Hysterical!

Zoe's a real cutie - love her expression.
Love the idea of aroma therapy frappucino style...

I'm sure you sleep much better knowing Zoe is at the helm. . .

That aroma therapy sounds heavenly. And low fat!

Ann said...

Cute little doggie! Isn't it funnyy how pets react to things. When we had a dog, he was terrified of inflated balloons.

samurai said...

LOL - some great mental pictures... thank you for the smile.

Sarah said...

I MUST MUST try that aroma therapy. I will have it on my desk at school and other teachers will marvel at my intellect, my good sense, my ability to totally steal your idea. And I will give credit where credit is due.

I saw it on the internet.

Sarah said...

that coffee bean idea is GENIUS!

Jodi said...

That is a great idea!!! The coffee beans. I got to try that!

As far as the bag...my cat would be licking the plastic bag. His eyes go to plastic and he has this weird fetish with licking plastic bags. I'm not sure if it is the sound, the feel on his itty bitty tongue or what, he may need kitty therapy. LOL!

Jodi said...

by the way...i forgot to say...that dog is BEAUTIFUL!
