That's not exactly the best picture, but we wanted to give you an idea of the size of it. Because it turns out that the quilt has pictures of us! (And TaiChi and Ben and Billy and Bufus, because they are always with us.) Grandpa got pictures from our bloggie and printed them on fabric and they were included in the quilt, along with pithy comments. Check out some of them!

The next excitement was doggie class. It turns out Jessi (the Turkey Hotdog Lady) is training a dog trainer for another Petco, and we were to be some of the trainer-in-training's first actual doggies. Poor kid! Apparently we are 'tough' because while we are very well-behaved, we're also totally spoiled; we get tons of attention at home, so we aren't actively seeking out human affection, we are free-fed (we always have kibble in our dish, to eat when we are hungry), so we aren't used to 'working for food' (we leave that to Mom! Heehee!), and we have tons of toys, so we don't get super excited about new toys. Jessi knows how to stimulate our mentals, but Riley the trainee was in for a bit of a challenge with us.
|Hi. Um, so you want us to do what today?|
|Dangling treat ball? Okay, we'll pretend to be interested.|
Of course, after class, we spent time amusing ourselves in the manner we know best - frisbee and bitey-face in snow!
And then today, after some more frisbee time
Mom decided it was time for Abby's haircut. All because Abby had taken to flopping down in the snow every few minutes when she got hot!
So, Abby got the same 87 hours of
Here is her 'before' picture.

Not perfect, but as our Granny would say, a man on a fast horse wouldn't notice the imperfections.
For those of you who are worried that Abby might be cold now that she is nekkid again, I can assure you she is very comfortable without all those extra hairs.
And I had to make sure she was still bitey-able.
And finally, in case you were worried about the paucity of photos of my pretty face, I won't leave you disappointed.
