Welcome to Follow-up Friday, the blog hop that wraps up your week and leads you right into the weekend.
Houndstooth said, “I remember having to have stitches after ingrown toenail removal once. The doctor yanked the knot out right through my toe!”
O.M.G. I think I would have yanked something of his out, right through his mouth! I can’t imagine.
Lauranne said, “I have only just clicked that your dogs are named Sampson and Delilah as in the famous couple and story from the bible (ok possibly not out of the bible but I hope you know what I mean).”
When Hubby and I decided to get a puppy from my friend’s brother’s dog, I suggested getting two and giving them a cute name like Jack and Jill. We tossed around some names and decided on Sampson and Delilah. Then we only ended up taking one puppy, Sampson. I found out after the fact that the biblical spelling is Samson. Oh well it fits him. 🙂 Hubby only agreed to let me rescue Delilah (who was named Ginny at the time) if I changed her name.
It was a small concession for the joy she brings.
Lauranne said, “I have those thoughts. On my weekend walk with BD it was “if I slip and fall on my arse who’s going to help me get up”
Oh I think that all the time too. I wonder, will Delilah just drag me on my ass, or will I drop the leash and just lie there waiting for someone to find me?
Not last New Year’s eve, but the year before I actually did fall. Sampson the little dick just ignored me but Delilah came back and waited until I could get up. I called Hubby from the cell, but after a minute caught my breath and didn’t need him to come get me. I thought I had dislocated my shoulder, but turns out it was just a hard fall.
Always carry a cell phone or whistle!
Emma said, “Mom has no footwear leaks, but she has three of us on leash and we do sometimes act up. Katie will refuse to walk which is a cue to Bailie and I to play chase and wrestle. Normally we only do these things when other people walking dog(s) are approaching or on a busier road. Lots of loud bad language comes out of Mom’s mouth.”
LOL Emma, if someone actually heard me on our walks, they would never believe I love my dogs. I say lots of bad words too!
Cupcake’s comment cracked me up, “When we walk, Mom thinks, “Isn’t Cupcake the cutest most well-behaved dog? She is so friendly and smart and sweet. And most of all, she never eats goose poop or tries to fall down the sewer or gets scared of helicopters flying over us.”
Yeah, I’m sure that’s exactly what mom is thinking Cupcake!
Hawk said, “First, Sampson, your human is calling you so you stay close and the hunters don’t think you’re a deer or a farmer doesn’t think you’re a coyote after their stock.”
You make a good point Hawk, I do worry about that, but I’m usually so loud when we’re walking that I’d scare off any deer.
Hailey and Zaphod said, “So Christmas day after our gifts, we went to the movies and we had leftovers for dinner.”
We both had yesterday off so we went to the movies then. But we did play a video game after everyone had left. The dogs (of course) were sacked out on the couch!
Leslie said, “(I need to meet Sampson so I can get some Labby loving. I miss it so.)”
I think you should Leslie, you will get lots of loving from Sampson, he would absolutely adore you.
Oz the Terrier said, ” I tried to trip Ma on Christmas Eve afternoon when she was shredding the Lechon Asado (roasted pork); she didn’t trip but she bobbled and some pork went flying…right into my mouth!”
Oh Oz, you naughty boy! LOL Did bad words come out of Ma’s mouth?
Frankie and Ernie said, “Somehow We missed out on the last two days of the Christmas Pressie give aways.”
Marquie said, “We have to keep a gate up to discourage Petal, and her cousin Penny, from coming into the kitchen to “help””
Our kitchen is set up in such a way that I can’t block it off. It is a feature of the house that I’m not fond of.
I’m still loving this picture.
That’s a wrap for this week’s edition of Follow-up Friday, thanks for joining me and have a marvelous weekend!
