honey bunches of "oh's"

Oh no. Oh dear. Oh Astro!

Does that face look very innocent to you? I'm just askin' is all.

He may not be so innocent, but at least he's not DUMB. And there are some dumb dogs in the world. Two breeds of which come to mind right away, (but I won't say which ones so I don't offend anyone reading this that might have one as their baby). One of the two just barks their fool head off all the time for no reason. Our neighbor has one of these. They have lived next door to us for at least 5 years and so you'd think this dumb dog would know us by now and not bark at us when we pull into our garage or do things in the backyard. But NO. Bark bark bark bark bark, the whole friggin' time. And it's not just him (or her), every single one of these I've ever known have been idiots. But they're pretty I guess.

The other dumb breed, I swear, if I'm lyin' I'm dyin', the last four of them I've seen of late have been IN THE ROAD chasing oncoming cars!! They probably weighed like 3 pounds MAX and yet here they were, snipping at tires (that were moving). Plus they're mean as hell and they shake a lot and they're ugly when they get fat, which they always do.

I know Pugs aren't for everyone. But at least they're not stupid. Well, not our Pugs, anyway. We're not dog people, we're Pug people. Well, really... cat people, but that's a whole other issue.

Not ONE single recent finish to show today, so here's something I posted on my old blog last year.

It's an older Blackbird Designs called "Trifle for a Friend" and I stitched it for my husband, he's my best friend :) (hi hon)

Today is my second Weight Watchers meeting day, so I will weigh in and see if I lost anything after being back on the program for a week. Hopefully it'll be good news!
I have to think about a swimsuit for my trip to the Jersey Shore this summer and don't want to get harpooned while I'm there!

(update: lost 5.2 pounds!)

Astro is adorable! He kind of resembles our Persian cat. Face a little smushed in and big eyes! I love your Trifle for a Friend. Your stitching is always so pretty!

Talk to you soon,

Ted wants a pug so bad.
I told him when he turns 50 we can get one for his birthday. Only because by then our now herd will be not so big.
Your pugs are so adorable Andrea. :-)

Hi Andrea, I found your blog through a link on Sharon's, and I have been thoroughly enjoying reading your posts and looking at all your nice finishes. It seems like we have similar taste and a lot in common. I am an on again off again WW person -- your weight loss is really inspiring. I also used to live in Dallas, but migrated to the Northeast (Philadelphia area). Are you still planning a trip to the Jersey shore? We plan to be there once or twice this summer - which town do you like to go to?

I'll be back to visit again soon!
