One of my favorite restaurants in my hometown of Columbus, Ohio is Schmidt’s Sausage Haus. Every time we make it back to Columbus Schmidt's is always one place that we have to stop. They have been serving traditional German-American food since 1967, making it a landmark eatery in Central Ohio. When Andrew was attending medical school we lived in…
A friend just showed me this webpage. It is titled “20 of the Happiest Dogs Around.” Seriously, dogs are so cute. I can hardly stand it!
I think my girl should be on this page. Maybe not in the top 20, but she sure is cute!
We all know about my love of cookies, in fact I have over 75 cookie recipes on this blog. That's right, over 75! If you haven't had a chance to check them out, head on over to my recipe index for all of them. All of us who have ever made homemade cookies know how tempting the raw dough can be.
In all seriousness, I love my dog. She has an amazing personality, extremely well behaved, and is even improving on her separation anxiety! However, the one thing that is driving me crazy is the amount of fur she leaves around. I think it may mostly be due to the fact that she is 3/4 husky, but I blame the weather also. It has been pretty insane. For example, it looked like it was snowing two days ago, but if you walked outside you were actually getting iced on. Less than a week before that, it was 50 degrees and sunny. My dog’s fur does not know what to do. So, naturally, it falls out.
Today, I went on a 4 hour cleaning spree. 4. hours. Mostly, I vacuumed… through two bags because that is how much fur was in my apartment. I even bathed my dog, brushed her out, and vacuumed again! There is still fur around but it is considerably less compared to when I started.
I normally don’t clean that much. When I clean for 4 hours because of my dog, I realize how much I love her – I will clean that intensely just to keep her around. She doesn’t think that’s love because she is afraid of the vacuum, and the broom, and the Swiffer, and the rug if I hold it up. She’s a strange and lovely girl; I love her dearly!
