How much is that doggie in the window?

Our neighbor, it ends up, is a professional dog groomer...like he used to do it for dog shows. Now he travels around in a van and goes to people's houses and grooms their animals(it must be noted that we discovered this because he drove the pet-mobile grooming van up the driveway we share and parks it there every night!). He offered to do Froggy for us, especially because he looked like this:

An hour and about 5 pounds of hair later, Froggy looked like this:

Gawain wasn't especially thrilled, especially now that we could see his family jewels (Froggy's, not Gawain's) loud and clear......I personally think he looks AWESOME!

The Professor gives his approval!

Born to be wild!

While visiting Grandpa this week I got to take his new bike for a spin.....who am I kidding? I can't even sit up by myself yet!

"A cloned dog, a Mormon in mink-lined handcuffs and a tantalising mystery"

So, I'm assuming that Vesper and I aren't the only ones to have read the story about the lady who paid 50 grand to clone 5 puppies from her dead dog "Booger"? There's no shame in spending time reading such a fluff story, it has been a slow news week after all. Well, apparently there is a lot more to this story and woman than I ever could have guessed. Apparently, there is suspicion (well founded at that) that this is the same woman who kidnapped a Mormon missionary and forced him to have sex with her (rapped him) in England in the 70's. Apparently they met at Brigham Young University and she fell madly 'in love' with him, hired private detectives to find out where he was going on his mission and followed him. Hilarity all around. Simply FANTASTIC.

Photoshopped This Classic Art Has Been...

I know I pass along more than enough Star Wars nerdery on this blog, and don't ever post any traditional 'story' or 'life happening' posts anymore, but I simply had to pass this photoshop contest that is going on at Worth1000.com. There are 44 entries to date and they are fantastic. I highly recommend a visit.
