I miss them terribly! It was so weird to be home alone sans canines last night. I kept thinking, "It's quiet, I need to go see what Oscar is into..." since silence is never golden in this house. And there were several instances last night where I stopped what I was doing so I could take the dogs out... except there were no dogs. There is, however, still a plethora of toys dropped haphazardly throughout the place. I stepped on at least 2 bones and almost broke my ankle on a tennis ball. I know I picked all those up before I left for work yesterday and they departed only moments later. Sometimes I think they have a contest to see who can empty the toy basket the fastest.
In their absence, I was able to get quite a few things accomplished, like painting the dining room and the bathroom. Such a task is nearly impossible with those crazy beasts on the loose. Without question, I would have smudged walls and Almond Fudge-colored paw prints adorning my carpets. But I digress.
Although I miss them, I know they are having a great time in Kentucky and are being well cared for. There is, afterall, snow on the ground there! Nugget loves the snow and since we rarely get so much as a flurry in Charlotte, he goes absolutely nuts when he does see it. This is Oscar's first snow experience and I'm sad I'm missing it. B was kind enough to snap the pic below on his Blackberry (hence the poor quality). The doodle reportedly loves the white, fluffy mystery substance too!
