Pony Party: Second Edition

When you don’t have kids you do other things that mimic parenting. Maybe we don’t realize we do it?

In my case it was a “doggy” play date. The border collie doesn’t really like playing. She spent five years on a chain so the concept is alien to her. She is a little survivor. When Arno tries to get her to play chase she gets grumpy. La-Kenya and her “girls” came over. The dogs engaged in chaos and the humans lunched and chatted.

The disadvantage of being a guest in my home is that it is never exactly spic and span. The advantage of being a guest in my home is that it is never spic and span. You get to feel a bit morally superior.

I think it would be fair to say the cats were not impressed by all of this.

They got revenge by hanging out on the clean laundry.


The dogs being dogs did not care. They romped.


They made declarations of adoration.


They flopped.


Arno tried to make it up to his cat rulers after wards by being cute.


The day ended all too quickly.


Don’t rec pony party. Chit chat, hang out and then go feast upon the offerings on our recent and rec’d list.

    and how much fun

    i don’t like spic and span clean houses anyway

    cleaned up, harmony instead of chaos, but a little mess is, for me, always comforting… it’s real

  1. than parenting…in some ways, anyway

    most kids eventually get to the point where they feed themselves, flush their own messes away, some even clean themselves!!!  

    we have yet another chaotic weekend here….but i get to see my niece and theyre staying in town until thanksgiving!!!  it would be PERFECT if her parents werent so frigging republican.  thankfully theyve been awfully quiet lately…  😉

    clean enough to be healthy

    dirty enough to be happy

  2. Did I miss anything good?
