Welcome to the BOMB.

The Blog Of the "Mother" of Bandit.
Bandit is my Hairless Chinese Crested--he's the "normal" one. I, on the other hand, am unrepentantly "pet-crazy." You know the type--the spinster who lives in the haunted house three blocks over with 72 cats...okay, so I don't have 72 cats, and my house isn't haunted--but my dogs wardrobe is better than mine! Need I say more? :~)
I've never been consistant at journaling, so the timing of my blogs will be sporadic at best. I just hope they are as entertaining to you as they are to me; however, be forewarned: Most of my blogs will be about The BaldOne. In spite of his Don King "do," I think he's just as cute as any of the Brothers B!
Now, if I can just remember not to get him wet--or feed him after midnight...

About Me

My photo
My bags are packed and I'm always ready to seek out an adventure with Bandit and Moggy in tow. Bandit is my thirteen year old Chinese Crested, who I frequently call The Bald One or The BaldOne Boy (like he was one of the Baldwin Brothers). Moggy’s full name is Pip-Moggy. He’s my two year old gansta-resuce kitty. I couldn’t decide between Pip (which are the spots on die and domino tiles) and Moggy (or Moggie when I mistakenly thought he was a she), so I combined the two. Moggy refers to the British term for "cat of unknown parentage .” So in essence, I have an almost bald dog, and I’ve named my cat “Spot.”

Fun Stuff (I'm doing now or have done)

  • Artistic Attempts weekly (alternating between Painting With A Twist, That Art Place, and Peniot's Palette).
  • Bunko with the Belton Bunko Babes monthly.
  • Participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge.
  • Spades and Liverpool Rummy with the Spadetts weekly.
  • The Mighty Texas Dog Walk, Austin (fund raiser for Service Dogs, Inc--they train shelter dogs to be Service Dogs, then give them free of charge to people with disabilities.)

How Long?

To the inhabitants in my house who are not me: 

How many months (years) have I provided you a safe and comfortable place to sleep and chill out? 

How many months (years) have I provided you crystal clear drinking water and high quality, locally sourced, USA processed food and treats? 

How many months (years) have I provided you toys and pet furniture for your educational advancement and entertainment pleasure?

How many months (years) have I provided you nationwide travel with pet-friendly accommodations—how many family vacations have been planned solely around pet-friendly activities? 

How many months (years) have I provided you love, nurture, and encouragement to grow and develop into your best, most productive member of animal society selves? 

How many months (years) have I kept you UTD in medical appointments, procedures, emergency Vet visits, and routine health maintenance shots? 

How many months (years) have I provided you with gym memberships, spa treatments, and higher education opportunities?  (Okay, Agility classes, Drool in the Pool opportunities, and Paw-d-cures at the groomer for Bandit might be stretching it a bit—but none of  it comes cheap!) 

How many months (years) have I provided you a wardrobe of clothing, and costumes, to rival that of any two-legged fashionista (okay technically, this only applies to Bandit—so far!) 

How many months (years) have I policed litter boxes and outside grassy areas so your precious paws would never come into contact with your waste byproducts?  (Or cause environmental runoff problems?)  

How many months (years) have you lived with me and you still have a problem remembering I have a first thing in the morning mission—you still do not know to move outta my way when I'm making a beeline for the bathroom?!

...I'm sorry I stepped on your tails this morning.  Both of you.
