Rowdy would like to wish his favorite friend Katie a Happy Birthday. He tells me he's never been so spoiled in his life, and he is very lucky to have such a friend take such good care of him. I have never seen him get so excited in someone's presence. He even does his "speak" trick for Katie, which he rarely gets with me. So Katie, Rowdy wishes you all the best today on your birthday. He will be sure to give you lots of kisses and shower you in dog hair the next time he sees you.
I guess I shouldn't feel too bad for being absent with my blogging......it's not like there aren't a few others that are a little behind as well.....ahem. Thought I would catch up on some pictures, mainly displaying the varied weather spring brings to KS.
Doggy doors are great......except for a few occasions. Say you were locked in a closet and had no idea what the weather was like that day. Well your furry friend will remind you it rained with muddy footprints all up and down the hardwood. Or say for some reason you come home and there is no dog to greet you, and you look outside to see a completely soaked dog fearful to come inside because he may have gotten yelled at for previously coming in the house and watering the walls like a sprinkler. See apprehensive dog below
Then of course there is snow in late March.......beautiful, but ridiculous
Then you have an 80 degree day on March 6th......Rowdy loves to try to get tan out on the deck. But like his dad, he has no chance of tanning.
As you can see, I changed the colors on my blog to the good-luck blue and red. KU made its run last year with these colors, so I am going for it again. I am really concerned(as always) with our draw. I mean, another B-team(Bison......at least its not double B's......bradleybraves, bucknellbision, baylorbears)? C'mon committee.......your sense of irony is getting a little old. And not putting either us or Mizzou in KC was a big mistake. Especially since I have 4 tickets to sell.........anyone? Good luck selling tickets to those rabid Clemson and Cal fans committee.
Either way, let's hope the colors bring some good Karma. Rock Chalk!
Finally a Rowdy update. Well, not much to say really.....dogs don't talk. But if he did talk, I am sure he may something like this.
"Can you get a bigger water bowl dummy? You know I can drink this whole thing in one sitting right? Don't you get sick of constantly getting strange looks from me when it's empty, then having to get off your ass to fill my bowl?"
"I sure wish I could get my paws on that mailman! Damn, I hate that guy. Always slamming the mailbox closed, waking me from my nap."
"Damned this winter! I never get taken out. Good thing I have my doggie door so I can come and go as I please. It is also kind of fun tracking in mud all over the hardwood after I have been out. And if I can get into the bedroom.......well, have fun washing all the sheets and bedspreads dummy!"
"Hey dummy, I am growling for a reason! Don't even pretend to try to take my cookie.....not funny. A very pretty lady gave it to me......back off!"
"I had my first close encounter with some cats. Don't let their size fool you, they will slap the shit out of you if you get too close. Lesson learned!"
"Do you have to clean and rub the "sleepy dirt" out of my eyes every time you touch my face! Leave my face alone dummy! If you must pet, scratch my belly or my ass......you know this moron!
I attended the KU game Saturday with my Dad in Manhattan, both of us got free tickets...we are spoiled. It was a rough start, but a huge win for the Hawks. I was worried because the last KU road game I went to was in Stillwater last year, where we lost. I was really happy to see this team pull it out, and I was especially happy to see all those poor purple saps hang their heads in disappointment.......again! It must be so frustrating to lose on your home floor to your in-state rival over and over. They are just going to have to hang their hats on last years win......because it might not happen again for another 24 years! I forgot my camera, so here is a press photo.........holy shit, one of the Morris twins dunked!
