Puppies

I have an old lady pug. She likes to curl up in my lap, under a blanket, and nap while I watch TV. She's very demanding about her time there. Yesterday she, loudly, called first dibs on my lap to one of our cats. I had no say in the matter. I am her human and her lap....

As a massive snowstorm looms on the horizon it's taken my thoughts to bundling up and staying warm. What's more cozy than mittens? Our mittens aren't actually mittens. They're more like ornaments. But, they're adorable. They come in red, black, and tan. I'm placing...
