Kat turns one


When we got Kat for Maggie, we knew we were getting a little dog who would think she was a big dog. Perfect. What we also thought in getting a cute little white dog was that she would be a little princess. Trying to stay clean and dry and cute and pretty.
Were we wrong! Kat has turned one and we have a stinky, dirty, scraggly tomboy of a dog -- whose only princess tendancies are when she sits on the pillow above my head and naps. She has no care about mud or dirt or the rain (even though she doesn't particularly like to go potty outside if it's raining -- as we've discovered). But, she does love her Maggie. And chasing squirrels. And her squeaky toys. And bottle caps. And water bottles. And ice cubes.
So, we have a tomboy princess on our hands.

Backyard







Hopefully I'll get more pictures as the summer progresses and does our garden. Trying to get the backyard into shape. It's hard with Kat and Maggie. It's really hard with Kat and Maggie! They ruin the lawn. And then they like to sunbathe in the flower bed. We've decided to take back the flower beds this year. Solution: fencing. Around the tomato plants and peppers and veggies. Sounded like a great thing until Tony saw Kat wandering around in them. She's very delicate about it. And when he called her, she just walked through the slats in the fencing. It's hard to remember that she's not 210 pounds like Maggie.


So, we're going to try to keep Maggie out of the flower beds. Kat we'll just have to train. Hopefully she won't want to eat tomatoes like she did last year. Now, if we could only get the grass to grow.
