We should have hired a sitter...

Pete and I have been together since 1984, but Saturday date night came to be a weekly event in 2005 when I started dialysis. We'd pack a snack and he'd sit beside me for almost four hours at the hospital while I was dialysed. Luckily our dates have improved since my transplant! Tonight it was rack of lamb, salad, braised cabbage and mushrooms and a bottle of Australian Shiraz. The dogs were underfoot while I was cooking, and at one point I dropped the container of sea salt. It landed upside down with the contents on the floor. Cocoa and Bunny quickly grabbed the container and off they went in a great game of chase.I put the dogs outside while we had dinner. It was marvelous. Good conversation, candlelight, wine, and a wonderful meal. When it was over I asked Pete to bring them back in. I knew there was trouble when I heard Bunny galloping in as soon as he opened the mud room door. They (Bunny) must have jumped on the door handle from outside and got into the garage. They had a grand time, and Bunny got hold of the insulation between the walls where Pete had made a hole for our dog tub installation. At least I think it was Bunny...(she's not telling) ha ha.

Kim you brighten my day I keep thinking only we have the mischievous ones who when it is quiet definitely means they are into something that requires looking into. Usually chewing something, digging holes, or just breaking into a restrictive area that they know isn't allowed and then we get the look as if to say you weren't watching me so it was okay. 2 minutes later they are doing the cute "oh look at them activity" and we run to get the camera. Spoiled Yup I have to say they are and we love them. Life would be very boring and quiet with no dogs and cats running through playing catch me if you can and going out the pet door at top speed to escape or doing it in reverse and coming in at top speed. The cat jumping over the couch with 2 maybe 3 on hot pursuit, never dull!They say it keeps you young but some nights I feel old after a full day. Keep writing about the dogs I do enjoy it Pat

Kim, I don't know how you have time to cook the great stuff you do; I'm inspired.

I'm sure Bunny didn't make all that mess; she's way too cute.

Bunny just danced over to this pile and sat down and had such a satisfied look on her face...hard not to think she was involved somehow!

I love to I cook! We're having a party for 10 on Saturday, and I'm planning the menu now. Should be fun.
