Slow Adventures in Slothville

January 11, 2008

Gud Morning! Oh, screw this.

Filed under: Penny, School — shhville @ 3:22 pm

This is Penny’s reaction to the bucketing rain and the thunder and lightning that were ripping through our atmosphere at 8 o’clock this morning.

I got her dressed in her sweater and raincoat only to have her plant her feet and refuse to walk. I suppose I could have dragged her by the neck all the way to the bus stop, but she would have been filthy by the time we got there. Also dead, I would imagine. So I carried my shivering chihuahua to work in my arms today and now she’s sleeping in her carrier as cozy as can be.

Our bonus footage today is of Penny enjoying her Christmas present.

Yes, it’s a pig’s ear. This was the least nauseating video I took of her eating it. Fun!

In other news, I’ve decided to go for my master’s in journalism at Harvard. Also fun! I’ll have more on that later. Have a lovely weekend, cats, and stay dry!



  1. Sadie loves the pig ears, too. Though she could have put down 3 of them in the time that video took 😉

    Yay advanced degree!

  2. Our dog would LOVE a pigs ear. And demolish it in no time as well.

    Good luck with the Master’s degree.

  3. Isn’t there a saying about making a silk purse out of Penny’s chew-toy or something? Or is it Penny wise, pounding rain foolish?
