The slammer :(

Faith here - Have ya ever been in the slammer? I got put in there tonight... HMMMPH :( Nothing I did - not even my cute looks or my many puppy kisses would change my daddy's mind from throwing me in there. What did I do? I don't even know!!... Well, I did hear my parents muttering something about me stealing food, but that's what any food obsessed girl does, right? I mean, it was just a little bit -a tiny little morsel, you could say.

What happened is this: My brother is on a special "diet" you could say of the most delicious food on the face of this planet - chicken and rice - YUM! I got a little bit, but he got way more. I finished my food in - hmm probably 5 seconds because I totally thought I could run over to Kosmo and push him out of the way and eat his. He is generally not very excited when I do stuff like that and just lets me get away with everything, so I thought it wouldn't be a big deal.

Then.. .. it happened.. .. ..

I got caught. :(

If that wasn't bad enough, my dad is the one who caught me - not my mom.. He hath no mercy sometimes and before I knew it, I was sitting in a bathroom with a light on for what seemed like the next decade. I overhard my dad saying that since I got in trouble for this same thing yesterday, today's punishment would be 20 minutes. Don't think I didn't get him back though - no way - first thing I did when I got out of the slammer was run over to my brother's dish and lick every nook and cranny clean. That is my job as a sister, ya know? ;) At this point, I am contemplating whether it's worth it or not tomorrow. Part of me thinks I don't want to be put in the slammer again, certianly not for 20 minutes (oh and PS you all should be proud of me - I didn't even shred any toilet paper!), and another part of me - a big huge part - says screw it, life is a game.. play it!!

I've redeemed myself, and that's all that counts right? ;) I mean, who could say no to this?....

Until next time ;)

This weekend I went to the All About Pets Show with my niece and nephew. It was a show that is supposed to promote responsible ownership of pets and it was fantastic! Kosmo and Faith had to stay home because they didn't allow other pets inside, but don't worry, I didn't come home empty handed. ;)

There were all kinds of different animals there. Perhaps the most surprising was a little baby alligator! I touched it and it had very hard skin which was not quite what I had imagined, but it was a good experience, nonetheless!

On the way to the show, I stopped to see Miss Kodee and got to bring puppy Becky out to see the family. My niece and nephew absolutely loved her! They told me if she was standing next to Faith, they weren't sure they could tell who was who, lol. Puppy Becky is adorable and helped to make their Easter all the more special. Thank you Becky!

Here is a picture of my niece with a little yorkie. I think she needs a dog!

Here is a picture of my nephew with a golden retriever! He also really enjoyed the dogs. On the way home from the show both of them asked if they could come over and see Kosmo and Faith. It was nice for them to meet all breeds of dogs, but also heartwarming to know how much they still love mine! :)

Here is a picture of 2 lizards sitting next to each other. If I didn't know any better I would have thought these things were dead! I must have stared at them for a good 5 minutes and they remained completely sedentary. Ahh, it's so much more interesting to have dogs!

Last but not least, I heard "my snake is bigger than yours" and turned around to see this.. YIKES!! That IS a big snake - no thank you, come again. I don't know HOW she remained so relaxed - that thing looked like it weighed a ton! I don't even know what they were storing this sucker in when he wasn't out "greeting" people - he was huge!

In all, we had a great day! The kids got to see cats, bunnies, dogs that had messed up hairdos (the kids asked me if dogs could get a complex because there were surely some that would have had them at the show - lol!), lizards, birds, that alligator and snakes. There may have been more, but I'll confess - I was more interested in shopping :o)

I now have a 3 year subscription to and Kosmo is getting a sample bag of dog food from - a new kind of dog food that lets you customize what you're getting!! We're looking forward to trying that - has anybody heard of it? We also found Texas Toothpicks, Lamb Lung Treats, Darford treats and Wet Noses dog treats at a reasonable price for the doglets. Unfortunately Kosmo is still sick so I have to hold off on giving them, but on that front, the vet has finally sent in for a bacterial culture (based on a very SMELLY stool - I'll tell that story a different day) so we should know the results later on this week. Please keep your fingers crossed that culture shows us something and we can be done with this ordeal soon!

Next year I will definitely be going back to thw show - it was great! :)

Until next time,

Sara ;)
