That's the story and we're stickin' to it...

'Tis the Queen on her throne. Actually, my husband put her up there to try to calm her down. She's cute in this pic, but I have to admit the look on my dear hubby's face is priceless. She's just this teeny-tiny bundled of astronomical energy. She's been in our home since Good Friday before Easter. She makes the Energizer Bunny look lazy!

This is Brandy
and DizzyThe "Three Elders" have accepted her into the pack. They had no choice! Smidgen is the smallest of all the dogs we have, yet she is not intimidated, oh no... quite the contrary. She's very aggressive. More chew toys... and these one's chew back! She couldn't be happier. I liken this scenario to bringing a "terrible two's" child into a nursing home and just letting him run wild. Yipes! What was I thinking!

In Smidgen's defense, she can also entertain herself very well. It's so funny to watch her play with her chew toys and grunt and growl and shake them about. By the way, some of her chew toys are my flip-flops (which are now useless), the hubs slippers (which now have no lining inside, and quite personally, I don't know how Smidgen can stand the smell of his slippers), an empty italian ice plastic cup, which is unrecognizable. Let's not forget to mention her real chew toys... a nylabone, and a braided rope and several fuzzy balls (which have hardly any fuzz left). OK, so you're getting the picture, I'm sure.

Aunt Mary's here, Aunt Mary's here! My best friend Mary and I are so much alike, it's scary! I had bought this bubble maker and she found it and had so much fun. I truly believe there is nothing that will make you feel like a little girl again more than BUBBLES and SIDEWALK CHALK, both of which I still use! Anyhow... while Mary was doing her bubble thing, Smidgen decided it would be great fun to catch them. It was a breezy day... and she just romped and rolled and jumped and snatched at those beautiful bubbles. You can faintly see them in the pics. It was good exercise for Smidgen too... trying to wear her down a little bit (yeah, right!).

Come on Aunt Mary.... keep 'em comin'!!!
Way to go Aunt Mary! Nice and low to the ground, gotta good chance at a couple of these babies.
Time for a break in the shade of the lilac bush. All done for now.

This next 4-pic series speaks for itself!

Who do you think is winning? LOL!!!!

Hugs all around,

Absent yet accounted for ...

Good afternoon,

I have been notably absent from blogland for over a month. I have no pics to share today, just a short message. I and my family have beening going through something for over a month now. It's nothing bad, it's just extremely personal. So, please forgive my absence. I will be back soon with a little show and tell about Smidgen. For sure, she keeps us hoppin' and on our toes.

Hugs all around,
Penny Sue
