DOGNABIT
I always show Martin and Karin the photos of my online friend's cats and dogs, and of course they can't get enough of Cute Overload. So, when I saw that the pretty pretty Bluepoppy, who has been in a marvelous frenzy of daily posting lately, quite unlike her usual practice of making us sadly refresh and refresh and refresh wait a few days between nuggets of bloggy goodness, and MUCH APPRECIATED by her adoring public, had posted this scrumptious photo of her darling Daisy pup this evening, I immediately, of course, called Karin and Martin over to the computer to check out the 'dorable doggies.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, they both said.

I scrolled down to the 2nd and 3rd photos in the post, all puppity loveness, and aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwww! they said again.

Then I quite stupidly made the mistake of saying, "I'm going to get to meet those dogs! When I'm in Boston!"

Immediately, Karin's face clouded over and then her lip went out and huge white circles appeared under her eyes as her face went pink and tears threatened. She pushed me slightly. "Fusk!* she said, "Mama, NOT FAIR. I want to meet those dogs. Why don't WE get to go to Boston, too?!" All my sudden flailing and backtracking and apologizing and explaining was completely rebuffed. I am totally in the doghouse with my daughter.

I promised both of them lots of dog pictures from my visit, special just for them, but that wasn't good enough. How am I going to make it up to my dog-starved girl?

Well since the kids and I are coming with out Tom for about 5 days we could bring Kyra I was planning to leave her home cuz of Anders but if you think he could deal with her then I will. Let me know. Then you will be in the doghouse still and Aunt Sarah will still RULE! >:)

My B-day gift arrived but none for Bryce yet.

Love, your ever devious Seester.

I didn't know if you were driving or flying. Anders NEVER reacts to dogs, and it's only 5 days, so if it's okay with mom, it's certainly okay for us. Karin has already asked about Kyra!

It is done then! Tell Karin, Kyra is coming! I talked to Mom earlier today and she thought Kyra was coming anyway as I always bring her. So i still retain my title. : )

What do you mean..."Anders never reacts to dogs"??? I thought that WAS the problem. Lizardmom

He's ALLERGIC to them, according to the tests the doctor ran, but he's never had a problem around dogs, ever.
