Daisy, Even Bigger than Before!

As you may know, my Mom is obsessed with her flashy beast and taking photos of everything. Somewhere after the arrival of Miss Crazy Daisy, Mom thought it would be fun to get monthly photos of the wee Bandersnatch to see how she changes each month.

As a reminder, here is the wee Bandersnatch at a little over 8 weeks old:

And then here is the Bandersnatch at almost 12 weeks old (and when Mom got the idea of taking the photos on the couch each month):

And then the Bandersnatch at 16 weeks old:

And around 5 months old....
Note the top of her head relative to the back of the couch.
And here she is at 6 months old.  Eiiieee!  She's getting GINORMOUS!
NOW look at the top of her head relative to the back of the couch!
She goes in to the vet in a couple of weeks to be spayed, so Mom and Dad will find out then what she weighs, but I can assure you I'm still bigger than she is! And I have still have the psychological advantage when it comes to bitey-face!

Stay tuned for 7 month old photos!

Winter Bitey Face

We have been getting a lot of snow as of late, and while that means a lot of work for Dad clearing the driveway, it also means lot of time wrestling the wee Bandersnatch into submission.  (Or attempting to wrestle her into submission - the wee beastie has some terrifying teeth!)

You might think that I am harassing some wee, defenseless puppy, but trust me, she is NOT defenseless.  She has serious Jaws of Doom!

I think she's part alligator!

Note that this is NOT the same picture as the last one - just the same Jaws of Doom, and me trying to get my face out of the way of those Bandersnatch teeth!


Terrifying, right?
Mom says Daisy's Jaws of Doom are just part of the growing process and that Daisy is just growing into a bigger snooter.  Well, her snooter might be growing, but her head isn't because I can still bitey her head!

I have my own Jaws of Doom, wee Bandersnatch!
Daisy must also be putting on weight, because while I can grab her by the scruff of her neck, it's getting harder to pull her down!

Which results in much practice of the Bitey-Face Tango...

I can still tackle quite well, however....

But Daisy seems to think that waving her paws at me will do something....

Not so much, wee Bandersnatch!
So, we are having a good time with all the snow!

Yep, she's crazy. And she's my sister....

Will no one rid me of this meddlesome beast?  Just kidding! I actually sort of like the wee thing.
And I will admit that Daisy can be sort of cute. Or ridiculous, depending on your perspective!

Totally ridiculous. But who can say no to a face like that? Even I am swayed by her puppy zaniness! 
Have a great week!

Lots of Scenery and Not So Many Doggies

Mostly because Mom and Dad kept oohing and ahh-ing on our morning walkies, and wanted to send out some photos, and Mom hasn't had time to sort through our morning bitey-face photos. But there are a few pictures of me and Little Black Dog.  But for you humans who like this sort of thing, here you go.

Note from Mom: we have had fog the last couple of days that has actually come up quite high (it usually stays in the valley) and the temperatures have been brisk (single digits to low teens at night) so we've have some spectacular frost.  I took out the compact camera on our last walk, and it really doesn't do the scenery justice, but it is better than nothing. And it's just tragic that we live in such a bland, non-inspiring place!  (Just kidding!)

Backyard, the fog was still around us.
More of the backyard.

On the street above our house, but with a similar view.
Downhill part of the dog walkies.
Frosty aspens.

Frosty pines.
The stuff Christmas cards are made of.

The one empty lot in the neighborhood. (It's for sale if you are interested - great scenery, but you are going to have a ridiculously steep driveway!)
We also have some really impressive icicles in the front and back of the house - here are some in the front (we don't go out here, so there is no danger of us being speared by icicles. Also we don't go out here because a certain human servant hasn't shoveled the porch since November....)

Fi here again.  Personally, I don't really see the appeal in photos that don't have doggies in them, but Mom and Dad seem to like them.... However, here are some photos that include doggies...

Dad and Crazy Daisy

Me and Mom.  Mom is all bundled up because it is cold out. Me? I'm just fine - I've got a fur coat on!
Contemplating the snow. (Or, actually, taking a break in bitey-face - Daisy is going to try to bitey me in about 2 nanoseconds.)
 Big-snootered Daisy!

We will be back to our regularly scheduled doggie photos soon!

Wordless Wednesday: Sisterly Love

Happy New Year!

Or as our friend Dennis would say, Hapee Noo Yeer!

This year has started much the way the last year ended - with lots of displays of Sisterly Affection.

Here we are in December...

Lookit those EARS!!!

There is a very fine line between the Doodle Polka and bitey-face!

Do you see this?!? Typical Bandersnatch behavior.

And those teeth!

She is all bitey, all the time!
And here is January.  Clearly some of us have become dramatically less crazy overnight. Or not....

Fear my Jaws of Doom, wee Bandersnatch!

Apparently Crazy Cakes isn't impressed with my Jaws of Doom. Or I'm supposed to be impressed with her Jaws of Doom. Or something.

I have had independent, unbiased referees assure me that this is a completely legal tackle. The Bandersnatch was not defenseless, and was, in fact, actually biteying my neck at the time. So totally legal!

This is another legal tackle. I promise!

While not a particularly new and different photograph, you can see how stocky the wee Bandersnatch is!

Yep, she scares me!

Those teeth!

I'm not sure if this is a legal tackle....
So, yeah, the new year has brought yet more bitey-face. It's a good thing I'm a patient, understanding sister!

Mom even managed to get two whole photos where Daisy wasn't biteying me, or I wasn't having to defend myself!

Mom has to go back to work tomorrow, so I expect that our posts will be more sporadic again.  But it was good having Mom home over the holidays!  Have a great week!
