Lumpy and Snotty

... a couple of the dwarves that didn't make it into Snow White's top seven. I've not been giving Herbie garlic capsules all week, on the basis that if garlic can make dogs anaemic, I should give him time off now and again. As a result his nose is all crusty and patchy.

I was going to be on a reiki course all day today, but it was cancelled at the last minute. Instead, I've done nothing all day, and I'm about to go and watch junk TV all evening. (I'm sorry, but Midsummer Murders is comfort TV - I know it's untrue to life and rots your brain, and is probably about to cause the collapse of western civilisation as we know it, but I'm going to watch it anyway. If Holly will let me.)

Anything that is comforting is a godsend. So go for it!
C'mon Herbie, work your magic and get well....please.
Hugs to all of you x

I love your sense of humor!!! If Herbie could only learn to blow his nose...we've tried teaching Bridget to swish and spit when we brush her go there either.

Lumps aside, Herbie looks wonderful!

Can we add Squatty to the list of dwarves? Some woman at the park(didn't ask me first) gave Buddha a WHOLE HANDFUL of Pupperoni fake-made-of-god-knows-what treats. He's now squatting in the backyard looking pitiful. I imagine it's going to be a long night.

I keep telling him that he's a cross-bred peasant and shouldn't have these sensitive, aristocratic bowels of his, but he just goes on squatting and looking pitiful.

Ari, Squatty (or Squitty as we say over here) is duly inducted into the Dwarf Hall of Fame! (I spent much of my drive to work this morning thinking of others, like Pongy, Mangey and Flabby - there are some baaaad little people out there.)

Thanks, Fiona and Teresa - I had to give up on the toothbrushing with Herbie when he started biting the heads off them and swallowing. He knew how much it annoyed me...

Despite his lumps and snot, Herbie is looking mighty good. I like how his hint of teeth denote a bit of a smile. =)
