And now for something completely differ ... err ... the same.

My sweet friends, I cannot begin to tell you how much your kind words have impacted me and made my week. Thank you. Truly.

The dispatch from Cha Cha World Headquarters? Well, my heart is tender, but knowing that I need to focus on me. And while I'm harboring some fantasies about a certain, unnamed person getting his shit together and becoming the man that he can be? Well, I'm also realizing that any sort of development in that department is completely out of my control.

Besides, I have other things to worry about.

Last night, while I was getting ready for bed, Lil' Frankfurter pillaged the trashcan. The problem with having a seven-pound dog is that he is fast and he is difficult to catch. Therefore, I saw him steal the dental floss. I saw him begin to suck it down, like the spaghetti scene in Lady and the Tramp. I saw all of this ... and yet I was unable to corner him and fish the floss out of his tiny mouth before he ingested it.

You know what this means. Poop Watch 2009 has commenced.

Nothing will make you feel more alive and in the moment than the prospect of having to pull dental floss out of your dachshund's ass.

Am I right?

Haha! Oh, you are so right! This is just the distraction you need.
Good luck!

Just know this: If it comes out a little at a time, clip it don't pull it. Reason for this is obvious...though that rotten little doggie might learn a lesson from having his intestines inverted it's probably not the right lesson.

Nothing better than floss pooping to get your mind off the other stuff!!

(I'm sort of hoping a certain someone will get his shit together, too!)


You are so right. Whew. Haven't had to deal with that one. My dog is small and blazing fast too. Just love him. Mine has suddenly developed an alarm clock at 4:30 am EVERY morning. Sigh.

You have the right idea....Focus on YOU. CAuse you deserve it.

Shit on a string. The gift that keeps on giving ;-) I'm glad your very wise pup is giving you a diversion!

Oh man. I hope it comes out all wadded up--I'd hate to think of it trailing behind....
