The Bandito...and also, Snow!

Here are some pictures for you...if you are still out there, visiting this sad, neglected blog!

I went to PetSmart yesterday to buy some new dog food, and I had to get this bandana. I have been looking for a bandana for Otto for about as long as he has been with us. This is the first one I have found that was not too girly (Target), not too lame (glow-in-the-dark from Superpets), and lacking a stupid saying (pet store at the mall). He was wearing it so the point was up on his back, but he keeps moving it around. Isn't he so very Old West?

Stop making me sit here to have my picture taken!

And if you look close, you will see that it is snowing. This is our first snow, and I hoped it wouldn't come. I would think I would ne aware if we were expecting a lot of snow, and I don't remember them mentioning that on TV, so I am going to assume this will not mess with the fact that I have to go into work at 3:00 today and drive home at 11:00 tonight.

Otto had yet to see snow, and he was unprepared for the joy. He was snapping at the snowflakes and running as fast as my hold on his six foot leash would let him. It was pretty funny to see!

And it is actually sort of stickign to the ground in a nice dusting. What a perfect day to snuggle under a blanket and read a book. I think that's just what I am going to do.

Yeah, I am still here. You're in my RSS reader so I read whenever you choose to write, however often it may be :)

Otto looks cute in his bandana. They almost always swing around so the point is in the front, but I still think they are cute. I had some bandanas for my dogs once that were built in to the collar, so the dog ID tags kept them from spinning around on the dogs' necks, but they wore out a while ago.

Your dog is very cute.

I see in your book list you have At First Sight on there. That is a good book but it is sooooo sad! I just finished Dear John by the same author and that was excellent!
