How much!

On Friday we took our two Lhasapoo dogs for a clip and parted with a hefty £64 which was bad enough (before and after pics below).  Personally I love them at the long length but they were just starting to get knotted where they play all the time, pulling at each other.  But while they were there at the "beauty parlour" we popped into our local retail park for some plastic drawers on wheels for my jewellery making equipment and supplies, in the hope that it will be a neater way to keep them.  You wait, next week I will be complaining that I can’t find anything J 

At the retail park though we decided to have a look in the pet supplies shop and came out over £50 lighter so it was an expensive dog day.  We decided they needed raincoats for the winter – well the wet days anyway.  We bought them some dog treat bones that they liked and we bought them muzzles to try to stop them eating anything and everything disgusting that they find on the walks.

I don’t know why but the dogs were manic the next morning – I am sure they must put some slow acting “speed” in the conditioner or something because they were fine in the evening.  But come next morning and they were playing and tearing around (and even almost fighting which they never do) and they must have covered 5 miles around the house before they even went for their walk.   They have calmed down again now though, thank goodness.  You wont believe how hard it is to get these two to stand still or sit for a photo so these are the best I can manage today.

They still have to get used to the muzzles as they spend half the walk trying the get them off by rubbing them along the ground or trying to pull them off with their front paws.  One of them got it off almost straight away so we had to tighten the strap.  We couldn’t let them off for their usual chase round the field because all they wanted to do was get the muzzles off so they stayed on their retractable long leads for today.

The coats look cute but only just fit without allowing for the fur growth so we are thinking that we maybe need to see how much bigger the next size up will be.  I remember it being quite big in the shop so I think they may well be too big but we really need to check them out as they cost enough!

For today’s trivia snippet here are a few Universal Laws:

Law of Mechanical Repair - After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to pee.

Law of Gravity - Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.
Law of Probability -The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.

Law of Random Numbers - If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal and someone always answers.

Law of the Alibi - If you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a flat tyre, the very next morning you will have a flat tyre..


And today’s chuckle:

Just before midnight a local beat bobby is making his regular patrol when he spots a car parked in an out of the way "Lovers Lane".

When he carefully approaches the car to get a closer look, he sees a young man behind the wheel, reading a computer magazine. He immediately notices a young woman in the rear seat, filing her fingernails.

Puzzled by this surprising situation, the bobby walks to the car and gently taps on the driver's window. The young man lowers his window. 'Uh, yes, Officer'?

The bobby asks: 'What are you doing'?

The young man says: 'Well, Officer, I'm reading a magazine'.

Pointing towards the young woman in the back seat the bobby says: 'And her, what is she doing'?

The young man shrugs:  'She's filing her fingernails'. 

Now, the bobby is totally confused. A young couple, alone, in a car, at night in a lover's lane, and nothing obscene is happening! 

The bobby asks: 'What's your age, young man'?

The young man says: 'I'm 18, sir'. 

The bobby then asks: 'And her, .... what's her age'?

The young man looks at his watch and replies: 'She'll be 16 in 11 minutes...'
