It's the sun! Two days in a row the sun has shone here and it is gorgeous. So gorgeous we have taken advantage of the nice weather and gone to the park!!!

They look so sweet and peaceful.

It is such hard work...we get so tired...we have to stop mid-rip and take a nap among the stuffing, which mom has to get up and clean.
The job never ends...

Basically all we do is just look at each other. Sometimes we go look out the window and whine...no fun.
(The upside is we have gotten extra treats the past few days to keep us busy)

Even at 21 degrees, which is TOO COLD for me, the poopies want to spend the entire day outside playing and eating snow.
For Ava, snow is the breakfast of champions!

We had spent so many days lounging on the couch together, playing in the snow, getting belly rubs, staying up late watching movies....what if they needed their ears scratched???? Who would be home to do it if I was gone??!!? It made me sad.
Yes, I sound crazy.
When it was time to leave for home, I rushed to the car, flew home, slid into the house (dumping my purse, coffee mug, gym bag, and lunch box in the dining room and sending cats flying throughout the house) and slung open the garage door. I needed a puppy hug!
I then proceeded to take their pictures....or tried to take their pictures. I wasn't getting much cooperation. Ava looked a little suspicious of me. I think I missed them more than they missed me. I also think they just wanted treats.
At last, a beautiful shot :) The treat bribe worked!
Tomorrow is another day away, but someone has to make the chewbone money around here.
Go hug your poopies!

Doggie toys begin intact. Happy little stuffed animals, ready to play. Then Ava and Finley grab a toy and go crazy. Out come the eyes, off with the tail and ears. Next....the gutting. If there is a squeaker inside, it doesn't last long!
(Notice Finley's nose in the upper corner!) The little monkey lost his eyes and ears, then his brains. Ava sleeps with this little guy...he was a quarter thrift store find. Thrift stores are great places to find doggie toys for me.
I felt sorry for him :(
...he lost his tail and his belly. This is the life of a doggie toy in my house. It is a massacre....a trail of white stuffing throughout the house. Shredded fabric strewn around the room.
Ava and Finley happy as can be.
