Last week, I got the tube out that was inhibiting my ability to be on my computer. Let me tell you… after three weeks of little internet usage, I was getting the shakes! While I attempt to return to normal, you will probably see John here a lot more often. However, of all the things I haven’t been able to do for the past month or so, this is what I’ve missed the most (well, second most, after walking the boys)! I swear this won’t turn into a cancer blog; if there are updates, I’ll put them at the bottom in little italics type or something. In the meantime:
- Did you watch the Super Bowl last night? It seemed like the majority of the ad campaigns featured dogs! My favorite was definitely the Bud Light “Here We Go” commercial. The dog was adorable – and SUCH a great actor! 🙂 Which one was your fave?
- And speaking of the Super Bowl… We have to talk about the Puppy Bowl! I watch this event every year, and it is so dang adorable. However, did anyone else think Aberdeen, the “star” of the game, was sort of a jerk? I know, I know. He’s a puppy. But still. The internet is abuzz today, complaining that the pup was robbed of the MVP award by little Fumble. But Fumble deserved it because he played nicely! Ah, the competitiveness! I was completely smitten with Lucie, though. I’m so happy that they decided to include so many bully pups this year!
- Because I’ve had so much downtime – with lots more to come – I’ve been building up my “to read” list. In my stack I have: Through a Dog’s Eyes, Follow My Lead: What Training My Dogs Taught Me about Life, Love, and Happiness, and The Dogs of War: The Courage, Love, and Loyalty of Military Working Dogs, along with a few non-dog books like Stylized: A Slightly Obsessive History of Strunk & White’s The Elements of Style, the one I’m reading now. If you’ve read something great recently, I’d love any recommendations, dog books or otherwise!
Have a happy Monday, everyone!
