Heading out for the weekend

While I might Twitter a bit, I’m taking a step back from the ‘net for the weekend. I want to write, not live the Romanceland drama. But to make your trip here not a total waste of time, I present several pictures of…

Her Royal Hiney, The Pretty Pretty Princess Minibella

This is what she looks like when she has to go potty and she knows it’s damn cold outside.

And here’s her pretty new coat from Samantha’s Doggie Duds (Mini’s groomer & her mother). It’s very warm fleece with broad velcro and I haven’t seen quality like it in any of the stores. And it was only $20! They also make them in sports fleece, so I’m sure Mini will also soon have a Red Sox coat and a Patriots coat and…

This is how Her Royal Hiney naps on the couch. They say an animal will only sleep on its back if she feels comfortable and safe. I’d say Mini feels very comfortable and safe.

    I have the opposite problem. I could use the distraction from my sucking books. How about you tell me where to go (in Romancelandia) and I tell you which stories need overhauls? Get to work on ’em, okay? Also my youngest is having Issues, which I think you’d be the one to solve for me.

    Can I borrow your puppy for a week? She’s just too cute.

    Have a fun weekend!

    (I am not sure I wanna know either… but then, I’m too often guilty of rubbernecking as it is…)

    Mini is so very cute!

    That is adorable.

    My cat “fluffy” always sleeps on her back in front of the TV.

    Oh, Shannon

    You are EBIL. Every time I see a picture of your girl, I get all crazy over wanting a dog again. A poppet of a dog.

    Must resist!

    Oh, and does it count as my pet feeling comfortable and safe if my parakeet sits on my finger and sticks her head in my mouth and squawks. To hear her own echo, of course.

    No, she isn’t touching my mouth, just exploring the cavernous echoes.

    I can’t believe I admitted that online. Hahahahaha.

    I don’t understand how a five-pound dog can take control of an entire fleece throw blanket! Seriously, she’s allowing me about 4 inches of one corner.

    And, omg, Jewell, that’s funny! Even if you won’t share on the net, I hope you have video!
