I have made some!
We managed to get some books in the mail for TinCan Assassin, and then headed to PetSmart for some dog food.
I noticed, last night, that our smart little dog will look at her food, and stir it around with her paw, then pick out the pale bits (dried chicken), and leave the dark kibble. So, I'd planned to get a small bag of a different flavor of the same brand of dog food (Purina One). The color is all uniform: the meat is lamb, not chicken.
I'd forgotten, until we pulled into the parking lot, that PetSmart does adoption days on Saturdays. There were about half a dozen dogs outside in kennel cages, all begging for attention (which the pixie was glad to grant). Since today was rainy and windy, there were twice as many dogs inside. Which delighted the pixie to no end.
One little dog that had an owner charmed the pixie, and had her almost ready to climb down out of the cart: a lady had a French bulldog on a leash. A white one. A white one that looked like he was smiling, and sounded like he belched when he barked. The pixie clapped her hands, and said, "Aw, the doggie said hello to me!" Which had the dog's owner nearly melting into a puddle of goo.
(The pixie also squealed and giggled at the clutzy little mouse that couldn't seem to keep its feet in the wheel--or else would stop running and let momentum carry it around in a circle a couple of times before the wheel stopped.)
We found our dog food...and a new floor plate for the dog's kennel. Dog HATES it. She's been on the bare concrete for over a month, since the old plate split, and then SHE CHEWED THE THING TO PIECES. So, I put the new floor in, and she balks at going in to go take a nap. Will. Not.
And then she starts jumping up on the back door. So, shrug--the rain's stopped, the sun's out, and the wind is quickly drying everything off. Dog went outside.
I have a bribe for her, in a bit: I've put my worn out terrycloth bathrobe--her favorite bed--in the crate. I will also put some treats in there. The bed should stop it from rattling, and the treats are self-explanatory.
Now...off to go finish the laundry.
