Paws with a chance of breeze…

Hello & happy Wednesday friends!

I hope you all are having a good week so far :). I am currently sipping tea to help fight of raging post nasal drip and fight this sore throat from it. #kermitstyle

I wanted to share my Tuesday morning, as it was one of my more challenging mornings and perhaps you will get a laugh :).

So yesterday morning, I woke up to the sound of whiny dogs that needed to go outside. Since I have border collie mixes (all about that herd and/or chase life), I like to peek outside before letting them out – just in case they are inspired by a fellow dog, squirrel or cat. So while I popped my bed head, blurry eyed head outside, deemed the coast as clear – I released the hounds!

It turns out, my sleepy eyes deceived me.

There happened to be a strolling cat across the street, Barley and Sydney decided they wanted to play chase….turns out kitty was not about it. All I saw was paws. Dog paws, cat paws & my paws! Yes, my ill mannered dogs took off across the street to the bad “run-into-your-car-and-not-tell-you” neighbors, chasing poor kitty. Mind you, it is 6:10A, I am rocking bed head, plaid pj pants, no shoes (which became an issue) and glasses – yelling at these fools and start to jaunt towards them…barefoot.

For all the years of “living in the sticks” you would think that I would have more durable feet. I cannot walk on gravel to save my life. I just can’t, I am sure it is an equivalent of watching someone walk on coal & with less grace. My swift feet did not muster up the strength to take on running across the horrid, jagged little spikes (gravel) so I had to run back inside to grab some slip-ons and TRY to run after these ANIMALS.

It was waaayyy too early for this shit. I had not even had coffee 😒.

With my foot protectors on (sexy black clogs), I made sure Ana was safe – at least the blind dog is good! Then I started my mission (take two)….then it happened. First stride out, I felt a cool breeze by my lady parts but I did not think much about it, it was still pretty early and cool and I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO THINK! 

MUST. SAVE. DOGS. 

also, the cat & of course scold the pups for running off, they could have been hurt!

I rally the hounds by their collars and with my “mom” voice. With a dog in each hand, safely crossing the street, my pj pants which also had a loose elastic band was half falling down slowly and not to mention, I found the source of the artic draft by my nether regions…. I SPLIT my effing pants. Sorry neighbors…all aboard the hot mess express…🤷🏻‍♀️

That’s right ladies and gents, I split my pants before 6:25A and that is a new record for me. Also, a sign of how the day was going to go. Yes, there it was – high thigh, straight down to my knee, split and flapping about.

How!?

I guess that is what I get for trying to be athletic. Note to self, sleep with running shoes on and stretchy pants to allow for movement. I am sure the pups were snickering under their “sad puppy dog face” Uh huh, they knew they were in trouble and also realizing their mother is a mess. I think this calls for a repeat image:

Anyway, since most of my action occurred before even getting dressed, the rest of the day was pretty low key. Work came and went with ease, I dodged the down pour while I waited for the bus and ate cocoa puffs for dinner…2 bowls….like a true adult. I also think I was in bed by 10:30P so there is that too.

I think that is about it for today, sorry for the short post.

Do you have any fun dog stories!? I would love to hear them 🙂


Talk again soon! ❤

    Well at least since it was early there was less a chance that anybody saw?! Hahaha!

    I am so, so glad that Lia cares not even the slightest bit about cats. She grew up with our one and that was the only cat she cared about, so after he passed away last November any cat she sees now might as well be a rock or a shrub for all the attention she gives them. Actually she’d probably pay more attention if they were rocks or shrubs! Not sure I’ve ever seen her chase any animal actually. I should probably count myself lucky after reading this tale of woe!

I was mid brushing my teeth when my big fluffy dog ran up to this poor older woman doing her morning exercise……he just wanted love but sometimes people are terrified of a 70 dog running at them….. lol. ugh. *facepalm
