our boy

If you don't know, we have an English Bulldog, his name is Kipling. He is 60 lbs of pure sweetness and sometimes spurts of crazy. For example, he is scared of our kitchen. He's always a little trepidatious when entering or exiting the kitchen. While sitting at the dining table tonight I heard a little scrambling in the kitchen and found the boy desperately trying to get out of the tile dungeon. After a few moments I grabbed my phone and caught the last few seconds of Kipling's close encounter with the kitchen. I love how he had to back out just to be sure that nothing was going to get him.

I am totally one of "those" dog owners. Everything he does is hysterical to me. Next thing you know I'm going to be wearing this 

and decorating my home with lamps like this

(but I'm not paying $149.95 if the shade isn't included)

I get it, I totally need help. But before I do I am going to order one of these for each of you for Christmas, I think you're going to L-O-V-E it!!!

so long yakkity yak

We have sold the yak (and when I say we, I mean Andrew. I had about 0% to do with the whole thing) all but 50 yak have been shipped out to far reaches of the country and they should (cross your fingers) be out by the end of the week. A very short lived and interesting adventure has come to an end. This summer will be a whole lot of poop clean up at the ranch, get ready for an exciting post about that in mid May.
