What the...???

I woke up this morning to a very strange, very annoying sound. I peered through the window blinds and couldn't see a thing. At one point, I thought I had burglers downstairs ripping through my duct work.

I finally went outside and found the source of the noise - my dog, Charlie. And what he was doing did NOT make me happy.

We just put up a wood fence and this dumb dog (well, actually, he's half-Border Collie so he's very smart - most of the time) was ripping a hole in the wood, chewing and gnawing at it. I was furious.

But not as furious as my husband is going to be. *shudder*

I have no idea why Charlie did this. The picture taken above is from five years ago, but he still looks pretty much the same. I know that Border Collie's will make work for themselves if they aren't kept busy, but Charlie usually doesn't do things like this. I just took him for a long walk last night. Maybe this is his way of telling me that he wants me home more often?

In Writing News...

Three more pages (single spaced) done. Yay for me! I have my RWA chapter meeting tonight, so I probably won't get much done. Maybe I can squeeze in a bit at work today...


  1. Ack, hugs on the hole in the new fence!!

  2. Yay you indeed!!!! Great progress :-)

    And there's NO explaining pets. At all. I never even try. Hope the fence isn't too badly off.

  3. oh, wow. Bummer on the hole in the fence. I think pets do stuff like that to see if they can drive you nuts. Kind of like kids...

  4. My dogs do that sort of stuff every other day. Drives you absolutely crazy!!!!

    Well done on the writing though :)


I love to hear from you!
