On Beauty

As for Bernie’s big crooked nose: What’s it for? Just beauty? Is that enough? I tried to think about that, got as far as: Why not? Hey! Beauty was enough!

    Good morning everyone. We always thought Bernie had a nice nose. We also think we have nice noses.
    Have a great Monday.

    I’m laughing at the Thieves’ and Rio’s comments from yesterday. I have a charcoal drawing of Lefty (remember?) that I purchased from one of our auctions.

    Happy Birthday, AJ!! Bet all the pups have a special surprise for you! And maybe Wee Nigel will stay out of the Whatnot so you won’t have to bath him today!

    The Giant is on the glacier right now so Ole Doc has called dibs on his ice cream cake. I make no promises about not rolling in wotnot in honor of the Giant’s birthday. I play such things by ear, my big, beautiful ears. Milady believes I only roll when the Giant is on duty. Take this morning for example. I insisted on eating my breakfast outside of the pen. I ate my breakfast while she continued with dog chores. Then, she got ready for work. When she opened the door of the house, what was this? I was politely sitting on the front steps to remind her I didn’t have thumbs to let myself in the pen. Did I run off like I do on the Giant’s watch? No. Did I roll on anything untoward like I do when the Giant is in charge? No. I’m starting to think milady might be into something.

    Wee!…”I only roll when the Giant is on duty…”…snort!…That is a grand statement to make especially on his Birthday!…snort!…So it’s his fault you roll only when the Giant is watching (or not watching) youse?…chuffle!…For some reason this makes me laugh out loud! and I never laugh out loud…gurgle!

    Giant!….Happy Birthday Big Guy! We here are so very proud of you and all the work you are doing for your family…snort!…Hope you have a great big celebration (at some point) with a Giant Cake and Giant Ice Cream!…chuffle!

    I would like ice cream cake today because it’s Monday and I want it. Then, when we are able to properly celebrate the Giant’s birthday, I suggest we get two cakes. One for his birthday and the second because it will want more cake.

    Amazing!…We here just started re-reading Scents and Sensibility this morning before my friend left to go play at the Library…snort!…It is soooo good. I don’t remember what happened last time we read it so this is awesome! I believe my friend was going thru awful stuff at the busy-place and this whole story escaped her frontal lobe….chuffle!…It’s like reading a brand new Chet and Bernie! What could be better than this?…snort!

    Ole Doc!…Do you mean you are actually relating to the identification of long-term or overall aims and interests and the means of achieving cake and ice cream?….wheeze!

    Rio: I keep my eye on the ice cream cake prize just like I do with the big bed. I eat strategy for breakfast. I also eat my kibble for breakfast. I also try to eat Gomez’s kibble, but he takes issue with it.

    Birthday wishes coming from Russia. WiFi has been iffy but we are heading to St Petersburg so it will get better. Of course I will be very busy in St Petersburg as I have signed up for three optional excursions: the ballet, a Cossack show and an evening river canal tour
