U Askez 4 Meez?

Herez i iz!  

U haz cookeez 4 meez?

Miss Fisher was SO excited to hear she was missed!  She likes the idea that SOMEONE is paying attention to her.  Because if you see that box over her right shoulder, a little thing called a steam cleaner has been occupying SSG's time.  

SSG is currently washing every surface and object in her house.  And if Fisher didn't run away any time I broke the vacuum out, she'd have been steam cleaned too. 

Fishy has a day of doggy spoiling coming up soon.  Just right after I'm done dusting ... and vacuuming ... and organizing ... and ... well, sometime before June.

But since a lot of you are new around these parts, here are a few facts about the pupalah.
  • Fisher is a girl, despite having a boyish name.
  • She was named after M.F.K. Fisher, one of my favorite writers (who was a woman).
  • She wears a pink collar to circumvent being called "him."
  • It doesn't work.
  • She'll be 4 years old this September.
  • I brought her home from the Humane Society when she was just a twee little 6 week old puppy.  You can read about that here.
  • She's 1/2 Golden Retriever and 1/2 Australian Cattle Dog.  Which means she stresses out when she has to choose between fetching a tennis ball and herding the cat. 
  • The tennis ball always wins.  But she DOES have to think about it.  Hard.
  • She curls up on my bed and sighs (loudly!) at night when I finally turn off the lights to go to sleep.
  • It makes me giggle every time.
  • She is usually no more than 5 feet away from me.  
  • She is every bit as sweet as the picture up there makes her look.
  • I ask her at least once a day "how did I get so lucky to have you?"
  • She wags her tail and leans up against my legs.
I hope she feels half as lucky.

That's exactly what I needed to bring me out of my "I dread my office" funk!

Me wuvs fisher wisher, cutie patootie, ishy fishy. I will buy her lots and lots of kookiez.

I could just love her and squeeze her.

I also had a pack of chewy spree and amazingly, they put a little smile on my face...of course I ate them after 5pm, so that helped too.

Yep, that's what I needed. BellaMomma is a big fan too. She will be so happy to see her. She thinks Fish should write a children's book. Hmmm?

Love and cookeez to you Fish. I promise Mommy will hang up the vac soon.

It's so good to see that face and those ears again! Isn't having your puppy curled up at the foot of the bed one of the best things?

Dixie has a set of ta-tas that droop to nearly her ankles (do dogs have ankles?) and she still gets called "him".

My goal is life - to be the person my dog thinks I am!

Little Fish! I still remember when she was so very little and she slept on my chest. Oh, yes, Oscar remembers that as well!

Hi Fisher! Have fun at day care!!!!

Tell Fisher I think she's the bomb!
