I've got a bad motivator!

Now Playing -

Marty Robbins - The Strawberry Roan
Life - 
Pooka, his head looking deceptively small and Clover, cuddling Pook's paw.

I was planning to wait and update my blog on Thursday, when I have a day off, especially after I hurt my finger at work - A box went rogue and sliced my right index finger under the nail about a half inch deep. Which is indeed just a papercut when you think about it, but an awesomely painful one, especially when you're a henpeck typist, like I am.

But then two things happened!
Ball... Not pictured, a second ball, further back in there...

First, I took the three awesome photos of the boys, hanging out, being goofy that accompany this post. As you can see, they're deserving of it.

Ludo, laying in what looks to be a horribly uncomfortable position. Also observe his luxurious mane.
 And second of all, I got a blog award! Zoe, over at No Letters On My Keyboard chose me as one of the recipients of the "One Lovely Blog Award" Keep in mind, she's a horror writer with awesome taste, who just gave me an award titled One Lovely Blog. A recent post was about how death and darkness makes her a better person. The blog award also features pink roses and a lacy teacup. SO clearly, Miss Zoe has a great sense of humor. So in honor of a Major Award, I figured I should Lovely Up my blog with some pictures of the kids looking stupid. Taa-Dah!

Thanks, Zoe! (And Thursday or so, I'll pass on the love to some deserving blogs too!)

I also have a few book reviews to catch up on, I posted a sneak preview of Martin, my newest creature on Deeply Dapper, and I started setting Halloween at work. Hooray for Halloween!!!
Writing - 

Uhh... Nothing to see here, move along! I hurt my finger! Arrrh!

I LOVE this blog page. The ocean has always called to me and those waves...yummy!

We're dog lovers too. We had two goldens, one of which died this last summer. He was 13. I miss him terribly and can hardly stand to go out where he's buried. We keep his food bowl there and I cry every time I see it. In fact, I'm getting teary just writing this. We also have a Shi Tzus and we just rescued a kitten that was been abandoned in our shed. Not to mention the two outside cats, 4 horses and 4 chickens! Anyway, probably too much information. Great post.

Love your furries! I have a border collie and a blue heeler. Our heeler loves tennis balls, too. Thanks for stopping by the Tiki Hut.

Great dogs! It's not bad for writing to take a backseat every once in a while, but did you really hurt your finger? If not, as a writer, I expect much more elaborate faux excuses.

Congrats on the award. I love the pictures of the lazy bunch at your home. I can't believe there was another ball in there.

Aren't dogs just the best? Hope your finger bo-bo gets better quick.

Melissa - Thanks, and welcome to the blog! I love the ocean too... We've spent a good chunk of our lives together trying to get closer to it! haha I understand completely about your golden, our dogs and cats (we have 2 of each) are like our kids.

Carol - Thanks for stopping by the ROUS Motel, hope you liked your stay!

Jon - You're totally right, that was a bad excuse... I'll do better in the future. Thanks for keeping me elaborately dishonest!

B - He can fit 3 in there at times.... don't ask me how.

Angie - Thanks for stopping by! And yes, dogs are the best. hahah and a convenient space filler sometimes.

Medeia - Thanks! It's better now.. mostly. Just a little sore.
