AND THE WINNER IS.....NO, NOT HERE SILLY!

I have became a little bit interested in doing contests. For some reason they just grab me and pull me in. I have recently won 3. Let me say that again so you can hear me I HAVE WON 3! So here are a few contests that you might be interested in. If not don't worry about it, I'm just being nice. If you don't join in that just gives me a better chance to WIN! So go and visit Alexis, she is really allot of fun and has become a dear friend of mine.




So on another note, I have had the opportunity to babysit my grand puppy Charlie this weekend. We haven't had him overnight since we got Skye because we just didn't think we could do it. They have actually been pretty good and not as crazy/wild as they are when he visits during the week for the day. I haven't gotten any pictures because if I go to get the camera they just follow me. If I have the camera with me, they don't do anything picture worthy.

Charlie is a wee bit neurotic. He has really bad allergies and is on a special diet. Sometimes because he get nervous over something he either pees, poops or vomits in the house. I still love him. (He didn't poop this trip, or at least not yet) So here I have been all weekend with the two of them. My dear sweet husband was gone all day yesterday and all day today helping my son paint in the new condo in LA. It's okay, I wouldn't have painted anyway but Charlie loves him so much that it would have taken some slack off of me. The dogs could have been in the yard all weekend with him instead of under my feet each day. See I don't let them out unsupervised because of coyotes, snakes, hawks, etc. I'm a bit of a protective mother, always will be. I just didn't want to be outside in the heat either.

It's been cute watching them, you will find them in the same exact position sleeping, or looking at me or whatever it is, it's like me and my shadow. They have each spent the nights in their kennels and that really worked out well. (Skye is sleeping with us every night otherwise) So there I am in the kitchen feeding the dogs by hand. Can't put the bowls down because Charlie can't have Skye's food and I really don't want Skye to have his food since she has such beautiful firm poops with what she is on. Skye is on self feeding and so is Charlie so I can tell you that neither of them got much food in them this weekend. The funny part is that Skye was all excited thinking she was eating Charlie's food when she was actually eating her own. I just slipped in one of his every once in awhile. Oh and by the way when Charlie is over Skye's toys have to go up. They, for some reason, seem to fight over toys so this way they just play with each other and have fun. So here is a cute picture from last week when the toys were up. After they stopped playing she would just sit there and look at her toy basket on the counter.

Thanks for all the updates on the contests. I think I will head over there later as I am in the blog read/comment mode and once free time comes my way. I am there.

Love all the puppy updates and for now we just add two more kittens to our household. They are just so much fun to watch. The picture is priceless. I think it needs the caption below it, "Got toys?"

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

On the contest part: I read my "52 ways to spend a rainy day" pack of cards today and one of the ways was to enter every single competition you could find! How funny. Great to hear you won though...

How sweet. I know it was fun to have both dogs. I bet they missed each other when the visit was over.
