About Me

My photo
I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. I am still living in the area, although I spent 3 years in Germany (Stuttgart). Fighting the age long battle against the bulge. Some days I am winning, some days the bulge is winning. I hang out with my dogs (three toy fox terrierists) and husband.

Three Dog Night

Ah, peace. It didn't take long.
Casie, Molly and Chloe all relax after a hard evening of
chasing the ball, chasing the rabbit, chasing the squirrel.
(Will Molly ever learn that she's too slow to catch anything
but a stunned bird?)
Chloe is faster than Casie was when she was healthy.
We came in the house after finding that mystical, magical place to pee.
Which was the same place that we found last week.
It still took about 5 minutes to find it.
The pecking order is still being sorted out.
Chloe wanted Molly's place in bed. Molly said no.
Chloe slept part of the night on the floor.
Molly didn't care.
Casie slept through it.
Chloe is learning not to chase the cats. The cats will win.
We've learned to pick up the cat food because
Chloe knows where it is.
I think that we did a good thing by getting Chloe.
She's a good terrierist.

New addition to our family

.....we rescued a 2-year old Rat Terrier Jack Russell mix. Name battle is between Chloe and Bandit. She's about Casie's size, but with Molly's colours. I picked her up last Friday. Completely housebroken, and already playing with Casie. Molly was being a bit of a meanie the first day, but that was expected since she's the little dog, and the slower dog.....but Molly wouldn't give up her place in the bed - Chloe has to sleep at my feet or on my extra pillow. Casie "loves" her - which you know what that means.

I picked her up in Dearborn - about 1.5 miles from our house. Originally she is from Ohio (we won't hold that against her). She's smart. She knows many commands - go outside, sit, down, no - and makes Casie look slow!!!
