Pelicans at the Bar

March 16, 2010

While Granny and I hunted treasure…(surely it’s called Blackbeard for a reason)… these not-so-shy members of The Beach Patrol (as my father calls them) sunned on the bar.

Diva-dog-attitude…

We have a real problem on our hands with Miss Vayda.  It all started a few months ago, when she decided that she would no longer eat or drink from her stainless steel bowls.  I guess after five years of the same dishes, she wanted a change of pace.

Since she never seems to have a problem cleaning our dinner plates, we presented her with a much more civilized ceramic plate and bowl.  The newness wore off, and  in about 2 days, she was starving herself again.

Nick’s brilliant idea was to buy the cheapest plastic bowls he could find…in a terrible, shiny-blue-ick color no less (I later found out he had the option to buy red) but by then the dog was eating from them…so how could I take them away?

These ugly bowls satisfied her  for about a month. Until last week when she decided that her outdoor water bowl had the tastiest water.  She begged and begged for us to let her outside.  We begged and begged for her to drink indoors.  The dog won.

Now I have one more piece of Bears memorabilia INSIDE my house.  She is without question, a Daddy’s girl.

still tweaking…
