the headache is gone! yayayay!

and this muzzle for maggie is just a wonder. she actually is kinda like a normal dog! i get home and can let all the dogs outside and they can ALL go nuts together and i don't have to worry that one of them is going to end up at the ER. she even was able to play tug with sebastian tonight... she can't play with everything with the muzzle, but certain things fit in her mouth still. she only wears it when she needs to, but oh my god it is so great having it as an option.

Can I come in with this?

sebastian wanted to bring this chunk of wood inside to chew on it. he didn't understand why i wouldn't let him. "pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease, stacey?"

and the fence guy finished the fence on the side of the house today, so now our back yard is divided into three sections: one so we can come in and out of the side gate without worrying that the dogs will make a break for it; one for the bulk of the yard; and one for a side grassy "run" area for maggie to spend her time when we're gone. it's pretty much ideal now... the lengths my boy goes to for me and these dogs. :)

also, buddy is spending his time at patty's now, except for a night here and there. and last week our two took turns spending the night over there; this week, they're both staying home. this is actually really good. having just two dogs here is, whoa, different. the dogs actually got walked! and not having to be on buddy pee patrol is a relief. she always told us that he never had accidents for her, so she couldn't understand why he always had accidents for us... but apparently he has already peed on her just-installed carpet. whoops. (not us.)

in other news:

kitten is cute, even though she insists on sleeping on the dining room table. on placemats i had just washed to get the cat fur off.

I had just washed those placemats.  Because they had fur on them.

Making a difference

A small boy lived by the ocean. He loved the creatures of the sea, especially the starfish, and he spent much of his time exploring the seashore.

One day the boy learned there would be a minus tide that would leave the starfish stranded on the sand.

When the tide went out, he went down to the beach, began picking up the stranded starfish, and tossing them back into the ocean.

An elderly man who lived next door came down to the beach to see what the boy was doing. Seeing the man's quizzical expression, the boy paused as he approached. "I'm saving the starfish!" the boy proudly declared.

When the neighbor saw all of the stranded starfish he shook his head and said: "I'm sorry to disappoint you, young man, but if you look down the beach, there are stranded starfish as far as the eye can see. And if you look up the beach the other way, it's the same. One little boy like you isn't going to make much of a difference."

The boy thought about this for a moment. Then he reached his small hand down to the sand, picked up another starfish, tossed it out into the ocean, and said: "Well, I sure made a difference for that one!"
