Monday Evening Madness

This evening we had a bit of puppy madness at the house. I'd settled down in the Sun room to watch television when all of a sudden a heated, scented candle went crashing to the floor spill all over the floor, curtains, chair and one unfortunate puppy. Bounce had been nosing around the chair looking for anything that he thought that would be worth nibbling on. He'd even found a Hershey kiss that had fallen sometime around Christmas, which he was promptly relieved of.

It seems that he some how managed to tangle one of those long legs of his in the power cord to the candle warmer. Poor thing had wax all over his rear feet, legs and his tail. There were some splotches here and there elsewhere, but the majority of the 'waxy build up' was on his rear.

He has been through a bath, having a fine tooth comb run through the waxy areas to try to loosen them, having ice applied to the areas to harden the wax so it would come out easier and then finally being released. By the time all was said and done he was so tuckered out that he just has given up and gone to sleep.

Hopefully this will make him at least a little leery of power cords. I guess it's time to think seriously about 'baby proofing' the house.

Daddy, how was I born?

A little boy goes to his father and asks 'Daddy, how was I born?'

The father answers, 'Well, son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway! Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe. We sneaked into a secluded room, and googled each other. There your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive.. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later a little Pop-Up appeared that said: 'You got Male!
