Rainy Tuesday, tagged and awards :)

This morning is was raining buckets lol (well actually it's still raining buckets lol). I'm not complaining since it seems everywhere around Houston got rain except where I live. Nanuchy (terrorX) was extra grouchy. Not only did I wake her up before 9 am (considering I have to be at work by 8:30 lol), but when we went on a walk I made her wear her rain jacket (see not smiling in this pic sigh). Sonja (sheltie) isn't exactly excited about either. Then again it had been thundering and she hates thunder, and I had an umbrella and umbrellas worry her lol. But when you live in a 1 bedroom apt, 2 wet dogs can smell well kinda damp lol. Also I groomed them on Sunday I would like the bath to last at least a couple of more days lol.

I was able to get this pic for the exactly 30 sec it stopped to rain while I was walking them lol. The light sucks so the pic looks a bit weird but wanted to take a pic of them wearing their rain jacks lol.

Coming into work today was awful. Houston drivers aren't that great when it's sunny and clear. But add a bit of rain and it is total chaos out there. So many idiots driving at 90 mph when it's slick and totally surprised when they spin out. Ok stepping off my soapbox lol.

I got Tagged by Raising Africa (Sorry it took me so long to get this up lol. Life getting in the way and all that lol.

Ok supposed to tell about 6 things that make my babies happy (cause how could I just chose one of my babies lol)

1, Czarina loves to eat. She wasn't like this when I first got her. It really was a challenge to get her to eat. Now she munches away and even demands food on weekends.

2, Czarina's second favorite thing to do is sleep lol. She hides under a lot of timothy hay. I always have plenty in there for her to get comfy in. You can see her favorite place to hide is under the heating lamp. Nice and toasty.

OK you can't actually see her but she is under there, I promise lol.

3, Nanuchy loves going for walks. I think it is her most favorite thing to do. Look at her happy face! You can't tell she is sick at all. This is how she looks on most walks.

4, Nanuchy and Sonja love their kongs with peanut butter and milkbone cookies, and don't even mind their crates since that is the only time they get this.

Nanuchy left, Sonja right. (sorry about bad pic, took it this am and didn't turn on enough lights lol)

5. Pirata love lying at the end of the bed since she can see out to the living room and still know what is going on. (I interrupted her grooming session lol)

6. Patches love lying on the extra comfy pillow on my bed. She will be on there all day long pretty much lol. She is 11 lbs so you can tell the pillow is larger to keep her nice and comfy, no falling off that pillow LOL.

Here you can see both girls loving the bed. They both spend a lot of time on there and totally believe I got a king size bed just for them LOL
