Be my friend

I recently discovered that Facebook has an app that will let you create a profile for your dog. The app is called "Dogbook."  You know I had to sign up for this one. 

Okay, I'm the first to admit that  I'm a dork, but I think I've reached a new level now. Actually, I think Bianka's profile will be more active than mine. Sad but true. My only concern is that my dog will out-"friend" me.

In case you're interested, they have other networks for cats, rodents, even fish. So if your guppy is wanting to join in on the on-line social network phenom, here's your chance.

I recently found this image while poking around the Kentuckiana Digital Library website.  I  need to get a print for my office space.

All or Nothing

I'm telling you, my garden is all or nothing this year.  All of  this I picked just this week.   I'm currently pseudo sun-drying tomatoes. Looks like salsa is also in my future. Although, I can't complain. Nothing beats fresh summer vegetables.

Chalk one up for the snakes.

Today as I was getting ready to run some errands, the little dog came in from actively pursuing something in the back yard.  I noticed she had some blood on her nose, and my first thought was that she cut herself. I started to clean her up, and the more I looked at it, it seemed like the spot on her nose was raised or puffy.   Not sure if this warranted a trip to the vet's office, I grabbed my camera and took a couple of pictures. Then I headed off to the vet's. Oddly, I was planning on stopping there anyway.
The girls at the office are so sweet. I think they got a kick out me bringing in pictures instead of my actual dog. They  managed to get one of the vet's to take a look.  The opinion there was that Bianka was having some sort of reaction to something like a bite.  "Like a snake bite?" By the way, they got a bigger kick out of Bianka's 7-0 record.  Sadly that record has fallen. Although unconfirmed, I think I'll have to give the snakes 1 for today.

FYI - I read an article about whether dog's dream.  Turns out they do. I found this tidbit interesting.
"So the next time your pet has an unusually exciting experience during the morning, pay special attention to his behavior while he naps that afternoon. You might just catch your pet reliving the past — in dreams!"

Told you she was hunting snakes in her sleep.
