gear up for some random thoughts

Hang on...there's some randomness coming.

1. Yeah for Dan on Big Brother! I was so hoping he would win and how cool to get all the votes. He really deserved it. Also, I know it's been a while since I've chatted about it here but did it not seem like the 2 months just flew by? Now we're going to have to find something else to entertain us Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.

2. I had to drop something off over by the dog park today so I decided to load pug up to enjoy the slight drop in temperature. If you stand just right outside you can feel a breeze! It was so refreshing. He absolutely loves the dog park and I love that he sleeps for 48 hours straight after a trip to the dog park. I was actually able to load the dinner dishes into the dishwasher without having to drag him out of it every 5 seconds. But, I did notice tonight the poor little guy has what I think is a "hot spot" on his paw between the pads. Anyone have any suggestions on curing these up on pooches? He also will not stop licking it, so I'm sure it's only getting worse.

3. While tearing up at my computer today looking at the stock market I headed over to read some celebrity news to cheer me up, but then read that Amy Poehler is leaving SNL. Bummer, now I'm going to bawl! But then guess what? It said that she will be part of "The Office Spin- off" Get out of town!! How cool is that? Let's hope it's more successful then the "Friends" spin- off "Joey". That was just sad.

Now what was the 4th?!?!

4. Oh yeah, so a few weeks ago I forgot we had a movie that needed to be returned so I ran out kind of late. I'm driving along and see an old man on his bike talking on his cell phone. Yes, all at the same time and we do live in the land of suburbia. I'm thinking who in the world can you be talking to on your cell phone at 11:30 while on a bike? So, then fast forward a few weeks once again when another movie needs to be returned and kid you not same man riding a bike...and yes talking on his cell phone. Crack me up! If I see it again I'm going to have to ask to take a picture for the sake of the blog.

Winston gets those hot spots on his feet as well...I get a prescription from the vet for these wipes that a give twice a day and it seems to help. He's allergic to grass AND has yeast issues, so you can imagine my familiarily with incessant licking. DRIVES ME CRAZY! My wipes are Malaseb Pledgets or something like that. Hope this helps!

Love that Dan won! I didn't get to blog much either about the show but it was a good season! Dan was an amazing player!!

Not sure about the pup issues....we can't have any animals because of the kids allergies. =(

And i am laughing so hard about the dude on a bike talking on the phone! And taking a picture of him is sooooo something i would do...love it!

Yeah for Dan! Survivor is going to start up and so is the amazing race! I think the Bachelor is going to start soon as well! They made Jason the Bachelor!

We take the Boxer Babes to the dog park as well - alas THEY do not sleep for 48 hours afterward - and Breezy once got a toe infection from there. Along w/antibiotics, the vet had us soak it in a solution of Betadine and water for 5 minutes twice a day. You can find Betadine @ the drugstore. Warning: It will stain just about anything - including the pupper's foot.

Also, Benedryl might help with the itching and, therefore, prevent the licking. We give our 50 - 60 lb dogs one or two depending, but since Pugs are so much smaller, I would check w/your vet on the dosage.

I LOVE "Friends" and that Joey show was a complete outrage!
I liked hearing your random thoughts!

can't help w/the puppy prob, we don't have a dog, and I don't know much about them - hope it heals fast.

I can't wait to see the picture of the guy on the bike - you have to find him again; stalk, do whatever it takes, we need to see that picture!
