Oh youtube, you’ve done it again

Pregnant Pug Video (sorry, I couldn’t embed it!)

I can’t get enough of this video of a pregnant pug. Her name is Zelda! Obviously the owner has good taste. I just like that the pug is all, “OMG, I am SO pregnant. I AM FULL OF PUPPIES, GUYS. SOMEONE GET ME SOME ICE CREAM.”

So great. It makes me wish that I could have let Zelda and Winston have adorable little pugs, but then I’d get sued or something by Zelda’s crazy breeder, and really, I like my money where I can see it, in my closet (or makeup bag for that matter).

I remember when both the pups were so small, ADORABLE. For instance, baby Zelda:

Why can’t they stay puppies for a long time?! They grow up so fast! *sniff*

NaPoBloMo Begins!

So here we go, and attempt at blogging every day in November!
I hope you all had a ghoulish Halloween! I spent mine indoors, but it was made lovely thanks to Steve buying a pumpkin and having us carve it together! So lovely. I also roasted the seeds. BONUS DELICIOUSNESS!
Last night was also the one night of the year that it’s legal to fire off fireworks in Vancouver, so you can bet there were explosions-a-plenty. Someone let off a nice set of them right in the park in front of our building, so I got to see some close up fireworks from above! Unfortunately, some drunkards let off fireworks at around 5am in the park as well, which was NOT a bonus, and made Winston go nuts.
I thought I might feel a wee bit better today, but I seem to still be too ill to have any fun. I drove to Kitsilano to the one doggy supply store that sells antlers in Vancouver. THEY ARE SHUTTING DOWN! Now where the tits am I going to get them from? I would think that Vancouver, being huge, would have a few places that have antlers, but over the course of a year I haven’t found more than one store that carries them. The shitty thing is that when I got down to Kits and parked (you have to pay to park everywhere here) the pay meter was BROKEN. LAMERZ! There was also a hobo sleeping in the parking lot, which I decided NOT to park in front of. Then I had a dilema of “do I park and run to the shop, or do I park somewhere else?” but I forgot my cell (big surprise for me) so I couldn’t phone and pay either! And this store is only open on the weekend on Saturday, so I basically booked it to the store, bought the antlers, and got the hell out of there before I got a ticket. It’s such a shame though because Kits is so lovely, especially in the Autumn! But the pugs were pretty stoked when I showed them the antlers, so all was worth it.
For some reason one of my tires was close to flat, so I had to fill that bitch up! The damn tires aren’t even more than a year and a half old, so I am going to be pretty bummed if I have to replace them, especially after just spending a bajillion dollars trying to get the car running. Here’s hoping!

Sunset and the Candy Dog

I know it’s Autumn, and that daylight savings will be coming into effect soon, but I really wish the earth would tilt normally and at least make it light out until maybe 7:30.  I won’t have anything to say to the sun (I’m looking at YOU, sun) if it would just make Canada light for an extra hour at night.  

Does anyone else feel like a slug right after Summer?  It’s like the entire side of the world slows down, and everyone goes into hiding until its Spring again.

When it’s dark out early and I’m inside I start to think too much.  Then I start thinking thoughts like, “Do veins just ‘end’ at the tips of my fingers, or do veins keep going in a circle?  If you say, had a tumor that you wanted cut off, but there was a nerve growing into the tumor, could they just lop the tumor off and sew up the nerve ending back inside your normal body?  Or would you wake up going insane from the nerve pain?  And if they brain helps trigger our movement, how do people do unconscious things like bite their nails and not even notice?”

Such is what I am currently pondering.

Do you ever look at your dog and think, “You are a little ANIMAL.  I have an animal just roaming around my house all day and night.  But you’re more than an animal, you’re like this weird in-between a human and animal.  And how great is it that we actually can understand each other and communicate?”  I get those thoughts every now and again. These creatures that I love that aren’t human are just wandering around all day, hangin, eating, pooping, playing, and sleeping.  I wish I could videotape them to see what they do all day.  Though they seem to get into more shenanigans when I just leave for a minute rather than the whole day.

A few days ago I was looking at Zedla as she laid down on the couch and we met eyes and then out of nowhere she produces part of an empty Kit Kat wrapper out of her mouth and just looks at me.  Shame on me for leaving my Halloween-sized Kit Kat wrapper on the coffee table.  It was ridiculous to see her do that.  It was like on 30 Rock when Kathy pulls a Matchbox car out of her mouth when Liz talks to her.

Just like, “Oh, here’s something for you to look at.  I like to keep candy bar wrappers in my mouth until just the right moment. See?  Here’s a Kit Kat wrapper.  Enjoy.”

The difference between making a pug look gorgeous…

and maybe not so gorgeous in photographs…


Not so good:


I still love the bottom one, but he doesn’t even look like the same dog!
