"Kick the baby, Ike!" "Don't kick the baby!" <spang>

So I was playing with Sable and her deflated soccer ball yesterday. Sometimes I kick it, and sometimes I pick it up and throw it. Invariably she charges after it, grabs it, and comes trotting back to do it again.

Now, since it's about half-deflated, I can't kick it all that far. So I was thinking "hmm. What if I drop-kicked it?"

But I forgot to mention this to Sable. So I held the ball in front of me (and she watched intently) and I dropped it, and kicked -- and connected, not with the ball, but with the bottom of her jaw, as she had leaped in to catch the ball before it hit the ground.

She yipped. I said ow! So I now have a bruise on top of my foot, and a reminder that even games with dogs should be negotiated, lest someone get hurt due to conflicting expectations. :-)

Current Mood: soresore

I felt terrible last night when walking the dogs; Anubis zigged when I was zagging, and I lost my balance and came down on Dulci's foot. In Scholl exercise sandals.

Gee, Poms can really scream.

But I was more upset than she was. I picked her up and carried her home, caressing her, promising her she'd be ok. She tucked her foot against my chest and looked up at me with huge liquid brown eyes as I whispered my apologies and entreaties. I got her in the house and burst into tears. Dusty looked at her foot and put her down on the floor.

She chased the cat.

Boy, am I a sucker.

I can't help it. She's a pretty girl with big brown eyes!

Good thing she's easy to carry I guess.

So when does she get her own piercing? Her own picture on the web? Her own can here? *giggle*

Well, you've seen the pix, right?
