This week has been very nice - quite nippy in the mornings, but warming into the 50s during the day - so we've been able to get in a lot of frisbee time.
|Nice Jaws of Doom, Abby!|
|Notice my nice, solid platform for frisbee retrieval.|
|Unlike Abby's, ah, less conventional approach to attempted frisbee retrieval.|
|Again, my nice stable platform.|
|And Abby's, well, at least she caught the frisbee this time!|
|She's got nice ear-flappage on this one.|
|What is it with her and the need to have at least 3 feet off the ground at all times?|
|Or all four feet, as the case may be...|
|Me? I'm more of a purist.|
|Again, I've got a solid platform, with good use of arms to trap any errant frisbees.|
|Abby, on the other hand, well, she get style points!|
|Being open-minded, I'll try the one-footed stance!|
|She really is a long-torso-ed gal!|
|Holy crap! I'm levitating!|
|Abby's levitating! Oh. Wait. That's nothing new! Heehee!|
|Yes, she does this all the time, all day long. Really.|
|Why does Abby think frisbee should be a contact sport? I think she's about to body slam me!|
|"Holy levitation, Batman!"|
With the nice weather, we've been able to drag Mom out on some walkies. Not that she has taken many pictures on said walkies, but we do have SOME proof that we've been on walkies.
|"C'mon, Mom! Let's go!"|
|I wouldn't want to meet whatever made those tooth marks!|
We'll spare you the graphic evidence, but Old Sparky did its job, and apparently we had a wood rat in our house. Hey, don't look at us. We even like the mice. We're not going to mess with Rodents of Unusual Size.
While Dad say this photo isn't of the exact variety of beast caught in our house, it's close enough.
Note from Dr. Liz: We have no idea how the thing got in the house, but other than eating bananas and candles, it didn't do any real damage (apparently wood rats are know for gnawing on electrical cables and wiring). And I don't blame the girls for not protecting us against the ROUS - the thing gave me the willies, too!
And on that note, have a great week!
