So…it’s increasingly apparent that I’m not able to life and keep up with a blog. Even one in which I only post once a week. Sooo…I’m taking the rest of the year off. In case you’re wondering.

In other news, this is how Horse likes to ride in the car. He plants his butt on the bench right against the window and waits for me to open the windows halfway. Then he rests his chin on the window and doesn’t move for the rest of the ride. He just likes to look out the window and occasionally sniff smells. And leave trails of drool down my window. 

But at least he’s much calmer in the car than Yaris is. Well, maybe not calmer so much as quieter. Yaris has always been a vocal dog.


I got bathrobes for the dogs recently because I was tired of wrestling Yaris when it’s time to dry her off after a bath.  She thinks it’s enormously fun to wrestle you for control of the towel.  I have no idea why.  She’ll try and steal the towel from you too.  Ugh.

But now I don’t have to go through all that.  I can just stick her bathrobe on her and leave her alone while I go give Horse a bath.  And then I can stick a bathrobe on Horse, who is much easier to dry except he’s also much bigger than Yaris, and go do things around the yard.  By the time I’m finished, they’re about as dry as they would normally be if I had done it myself.  I just have to do a small rubdown on the legs and sometimes the haunches.
