kim: after four months, peanut finally chewed a leg off of her octopus. within minutes, all 8 were gone. but up until that point, it had held up remarkably well.


peanut: now i have nine toys instead of just one!

problem solving skills

peanut needs to develop her problem solving skills. instead of finding a solution to her problem, such as figuring out how to get the ball out from under the radiator, she whines, and then i have to get it for her.

this bag of peanuts weight 29.0 lb.

hmmm...now that i think of it, maybe her problem solving skills are just fine.


peanut: uh-ohhh...looks like i'll have to do my sad little puppy dog eyes again.

self serve counter

kim: peanut took it upon herself to get a bag of treats (full bag minus about 3 bits) down from the table in the basement and eat the whole thing. piggly wiggly.

tally: $895.94 (but i need to go to the store again, so that'll go up shortly)


peanut: they were lip-smackin' good!

kim: peanut is teaching herself (or maybe me) the game of fetch. kinda sorta. she mostly brings things over to play tug with, but if i throw the squeaky octopus or a tennis ball, she'll go get it and - sometimes - bring it back so i can throw it again.


peanut: i like the pink breast cancer balls the best.

mitten carcass

kim: peanut tore up my warmest mitties. this is not a complete tragedy, as they were several years old and well worn (note the palms). still, it's sad to come home and find your toastiest mitts with their guts pulled out.


peanut: but they were stuffed. just like a chew toy.
