Bone Head Toni Nails Calvin

O.K., so new neighborhood this year + not sure if the neighbors would be prepared for doggie trick-or-treaters. So... I decided not to take the dogs out in costume. I was about to drive Calvin back to the old street to get one of Figaro's mom's super doggie bags but then I got slammed with trick-or-treaters. But that didn't mean we couldn't have some fun at home in between warding off the ninja's, goblins, and deceptacons with sugar snacks!

p.s. I love that devious little smirk on Calvin's face. He is sooooo planning a trick!

Crafty Calvin and the Jaws of Steal

Calvin is following in his mom's footsteps and has make his very first work of art/craft. And because of it, Calvin earned a new nickname -- "Jaws of Steal" (not steel). Yesterday he stole an empty can of dog food out of the recycle bin, pealed off the label, and then used his teeth to make a pretty abstract design going around the edge of the can. I think he was trying to make me a votive candle holder and it came out pretty nice. Maybe I can get him a booth at the Art Market next year... ;)

And for those who do not believe a cute little 22 pound dog can be this strong + destructive, trust me this is NOTHING compared to what I know those pearly whites can do.

"Help! I've Fallen and I Can't Get Up!"

Poor little Toni. She didn't fall off the bed once last night. Nope, she fell off twice. And it wasn't like Happy falls as Happy has perfected the roll and thud.

Toni got creative and came up with a much more graceful and softer way to fall. First she twirled and twirled until she got my quilt tightly wrapped around her (like a bug snug in a rug). Then she slowly rolled off the bed and briefly hung off the side of my mattress like a hobo sack and then oh so serenely sunk to the floor. If I wasn't freezing and I needed the blankets back I bet Toni would have stayed on the floor in her cocoon of covers.

For Christmas I think I am going to get her and Happy "Life Alert". Seems like the only dog that doesn't get into trouble these days is my little Calvin (and that's because he is is busy eating as many sharpie markers and pants pockets as he can find). I am seriously considering getting padded walls and floors (do they even make padded floors?) for the whole house. Better yet, I can just buy a big bouncy fun house and live in there with the dogs (hmmm...but how would I keep their claws from deflating it?).

The New Style

Toni may be following in her grandmas pawprints. Happy is a true fashionista, Happy loves to dress up and look her best.

I put Happy's Hello Kitty bandanna on Toni and before I knew it Toni had turned her bandanna into a sleeveless little halter top (kinda like the ones that were popular about 10 years ago that looked like a tank top made out of a teeny handkerchief). Man, I love Toni! She is such a goon!
