Schnauzers and Addictive Flash Games

The weekend is over, though you wouldn't know it by the weather. It's been raining for the past 3 weekends here in Georgia, and Glenn Burns, our ABC-affiliate weather-dude, says we're looking good to make it four. It's raining again today.

Though not all was dismal over the past couple of days. Over the rainy weekend, Peggy's folks took home not one, but TWO Schnauzer puppies. They are named Frodo (the gray one, because he looks slightly more strung-out), and Sam (the black one). Pat and Mike brought the wee ones by the apartment on their way back home so we got to say hola, and Sam got to piddle on the carpet. It was adorable. We didn't let Venkman meet them. He gets fed enough. We'll wait 'till they're bigger and can defend themselves against a feline berzerker barrage.

Also, I found a games website that kept me from doing a number of things I'd planned on doing today. Not that it takes much, but check out Teagames.com. A lot of you have probably already seen this site, but I thought I'd mention it for the uninitiated. Most of them get old pretty quick, but they're all simple and there are lots to choose from. I spent too much time on the one called Blueprint. Eagle Eye's fun, too.

Those are some cute puppies. I've known schnauzers I haven't liked and others I have. I'm betting Sam and Frodo would be on my good side. They seem like they know what's up and could work their way around a mean game of run around the table.

Oh, ever heard of Nature's Miracle? It's a piss-odor removal liquid that seems to actually work. I've been impressed with it, especially given the high volume of piss that our carpet has seen. Sometimes, even out pets piss on the carpet and Nature's Miracle works on that as well.

my whole life, after petting countless dogs, I've only been bitten by 3 of them (well...really 4, but one of the was 18 years old and didn't have any teeth. After letting him gum me several times, we became good friends)
And out of those 3 nasty little beasts, 2 of them were schnauzers.

Those two little devils will turn out no good! Mark my words and warn Peggy's parents!

My parents have had schnauzers all my life. About 8 total, plus Frodo and Sam now. No real danger yet. Although Sam was a little chewy with my fingers, so I'll warn them!

I don't mean this to sound all evil and Heath-y, but am I the only one who finds something amusing in the thought of Nathan being bitten by a dog on 3 seperate occasions? It's not so much the initial shock and pain, which I'm sure would sort of be comical, but more the fact that it's happened THREE times.

I kind of imagine it unfolding in a Homer Simpson-esque manner where you get bitten once, and then go back again for more because - and I'm paraphrasing here - "doggies are fun!"

I'm sure it didn't happen like that, but regardless I would love to hear more about your experiences being bitten, Hinesy. I think this is something that makes you truly unique. In fact, it should go in your bio on the book jacket.

Which I'm certain Crane is reading right now, right Crane?

This kid should get bitten three times by a dog, and by bitten I mean "run over" and by dog I mean "a big truck":

I think that hitler youth lost a year off his life within those five minutes alone.

Jesus Heath...When the people who actually know that kid see that video, he's going to have a hard time getting a....friend, girlfriend, acquaintance. Shit, if I was that little psychopath's parents, I'd be installing locks on my bedroom door.

Did you watch the entire thing all the way through? Amazing. Total train wreck.

Nathan said...

absolutely watched it all the way through. I couldn't stop, as much as I wanted to

I love those puppies. They are so cute I want to eat them up and have them come out in my doodie.
