Earlier in the summer, we had a couple of instances where Chi Chi fell into the pool and I thought that those times were behind us. I've taken to giving her a taxi ride to and from her bathroom at night and that seems to have ended that probblem. I forgot about the variable of one Stinky Dog. Stinky is kind of like a bull in a china shop. She doesn't give a damn if one of the other dogs is in her path. She'll bulldoze right over them so they try to stay out of her way. Chi Chi saw Stinky barrelling up the pool deck and decided that she should back up and into the pool she went. If I really want to prolong Chi Chi's life, I need to just flat keep her way from the pool. Or maybe the cool dip rejuvenated her?

As I speak type a new garage door is being installed! A few years ago, I was on my way to work and in such a hurry that I did not open the garage door before trying to drive out. This resulted in a badly dented garage door. Over time, the dents have turned to cuts in the metal and the door was making a horrible noise when it was opened or closed. I'm sure the neighbors will be happy to see it fixed.

I started reading Visiting Life last night and finished it up this morning. It's about women who have husbands/boyfriends in prison. The ending totally took me by surprise and I cried my eyes out at 9 a.m. I don't like to cry in front of the dogs because it freaks them out. Tears make my eyes even more yummy looking to Tiny Dog and when you are sad is not a time that you want to be flicking a dog off of your eyeballs. I let her lick my eyes one time. I thought if she got to do it once that that would take some of the mystery away for her and she wouldn't want to lick them anymore. I was wrong. I guess eyeballs are Tiny Dog's herion.

Tiny Dog's heroin!?!? Luv your wit.

Chickie said...

Regal - Maybe I should say it's her acid. Since you lick acid and not heroin.

Little Chi Chi...Oh My! Poor dear....It's good you were there!
That book sounds very interesting...!

Tiny is a caution...LOL!

About your comment on my post: I wonder what Bee's think, too...The last Bee post, a few days ago, I posed a lot of questions about Bees...like, do they fall in love? Do they get sad? Etc. It is interesting to contemplate, isn't it?

Inflatable cootchie for Chi Chi, I'm telling ya!

A few years ago when my garage doors were relatively new, I "accidentally" slid into my garage door denting the hell out of it. I may or may not have been drunk when I did it.

Last year my son drove into the other garage door with a kayak still on top of my wife's car.

Both doors are a total mess but I just can't bring myself to fix them because it cost so much to put them up in the first place.

Keep your eyes on Chi Chi! Poor little thing! It's tough having small dogs sometimes isn't it?

LMAO at the eyeballs comments. She loves licking your tears and Stinky's eye boogies.

Chickie said...

Lady of the Hills - I've always wondered what animals think. I think I'm good with reading the dogs minds but it is interesting to think about.

Sara Sue - I have other plans for her coochie. She is going to be freeze-dried after her demise and I'm going to use it as a pencil holder.

Mike - Yeah, the door has looked like crap but because of the cost we waited so long. It had gotten to the point where it wasn't opening/closing properly.

Patti_Cake - I think I'm doing a good job watching her and something like that happens. She dried out good and seems no worse for wear now though.

Tiny just has issues.

Scotty Ice said...

Thanks for the comment Chickie!

We had a wonderful time and really would like to go back soon...especially London!

Also thanks for the comment on the picture...I do not usually take good ones so I need all the compliments I can get!! I love the one of Nanners tho!!

Chickie said...

Scotty Ice - The perspective on the picture was really neat.

I'm glad to see you back!

I though dogs could swim if they didn't have arthritis or something lie that. Even if she can't see it, doesn't she remember that there's water there?

Maybe Stinky is secretly jealous of Chi Chi and wants to stealthily do away with her. Wasn't she the first dog that you got and now you have three?

Chickie said...

Midwestern City Boy - Chi Chi does have a bit of arthritis but still manages to swim if the need arises.

She seems to be a bit senile and I think she just forgets that the pool is there since she hasn't been here long.

I always thought that Stinky was good-natured but you have raised a good point.

Sara Sue said...

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Pencil holder!!!

here today, gone tomorrow said...

Sara sue beat me again...pencil holder!! Flicking dogs off yer eyeballs! Gawd. You have a way with words.

Scott English said...

I'm not surprised. You do appear to have yummy eyes.

"I'm going to use it as a pencil holder." - Oh good lord, you never cease to surprise me!


Chickie said...

I can't help it. Whenever I look at her big ol' snatch, all I can think is, "What could I stick in there?" I haven't poked her with anything yet.
