After returning from our trip to Denton I decided to run over to Whole Foods to grab a few things. I had 2 Chocolate Peppermint Stick Luna Bars in my purse so took them out and put them on a table beside the couch so it wouldn't look like I was shoplifting. While I was at the store Lida Rose ate them. They are dark chocolate and she is a tiny pup so they probably would have killed her. We spent most of the night at the Sunset Boulevard Animal Clinic which is open 24/7. She was given a drug to induce vomiting, a drug to stop the vomiting and charcoal to absorb anything else left in her tummy. She will make a full recovery and I will never have dark chocolate in my house again.

Christmas in Denton

Lida Rose and I rode the Vonlane bus to Denton this weekend and had a wonderful time. She enjoyed visiting her sister and also enjoyed the many long walks we took to the square. My daughter and I had several really good meals and enjoyed a production of A Tuna Christmas. Tiger Lily was happy when we left so she could reclaim her spot on the couch.

SPCA 5K Walk

Lida Rose and I did a 5K walk for the SPCA on Saturday. We went with Mr. Bond and Roscoe and their parents and we all had a great time. Over 339K was raised for the SPCA.

My neighbor and I decided to take the pups over to Rice last night to walk. Here are some pictures I took.

One Way to Stay Warm

Lida Rose and I walked to La Madeleine with our friends on Sunday morning. She shared a mini blueberry muffin with Roscoe and Bond and I had a chocolate croissant and coffee. It was pretty cold and when she started shaking I put her inside of my sweatshirt which kept us both warm.

Slumber Party

Lida Rose had a sleepover this weekend with Cameron's cousin, a corgi named Chula. Chula's family, along with her aunt Pat, went to San Antonio so she stayed with us. Lida Rose was very jealous but there was no fighting and they walked very well together.

Pretty in Pink

Lida Rose got this new harness on Saturday. It doesn't rub her skin as much as the other ones do and is really cute too.

Hugging Cats

I was at the Petsmart on Shepherd on Saturday and saw these two adorable cats who are available for adoption through Save A Cat Rescue.

Art in the Staff Lounge

Someone arranged these two mustard bottles in front of a frame inside an empty telephone cubicle in the staff lounge, a la Andy Warhol.

I applied a pop-art effect to make this.

I dog sat for this lovely Cavalier King Charles Spaniel a few weeks ago.

Happy Halloween

Halloween Night on the Square

Denton Dogs

On Saturday we went to a Farmer's Market where there was a dog Halloween costume contest. I think everyone's favorite was the Chia Pet Chihuahua.

Waiting for Mom

I left Lida Rose in the car while I went into the store and my daughter took this adorable picture her looking very concerned.

A Family Visit

My niece Erin, her husband Ben, and their daughter Margaret Carol visited us last weekend. These are a few pictures I took. Margaret had a wonderful time playing with a magnetic paper doll set I bought her and also playing with some of my stuffed animals, as well as the real animal, Lida Rose. On Sunday Cameron's parents joined us for lunch. After everyone left Lida Rose crawled up on the little pile of stuffed animals Margaret had been playing with and fell asleep.

Lida Rose

I got the results for the biopsy on the little growth that was on Lida Rose's gum. It is a benign inflamed gingival fibromucosal polyp. Such good news!

Lida Rose's First Slumber Party

Lida Rose had her first sleepover last weekend when Mr. Bond and Roscoe's parents went out of town. Everyone got along great. If you look at the picture of Lida Rose in the bottom picture you can see what looks like a tiny tongue. She had this removed on Tuesday when she had her teeth cleaned. The doctor thought it might be cancerous so it was sent out for a biopsy. I probably won't find out until Monday.
