Daughters of Demolition

Letty (above) and Lu (below)

Cute, aren't they? Well don't let them fool you. They're the most lunkheaded demolition experts you'll ever meet. They destroy gardens, bushes and most of all... peace and quiet. There is no silence they won't shatter, no slumber they won't disturb. Notice more typos and incoherent blathering on this blog? Thank these two daughters of demolition. They prove that anything is chewable.They work in concert to remain ignorant. Despite all that, they are adorable and smart and they will lose because if they don't learn to behave, they'll miss having great lives. We can't have that. After two weeks of nonviolent warfare, they're catching on a bit. They 'come,' 'sit' and 'stay' and even pretty much know their names.

By the time Lloyd was their eleven weeks, he was housebroken and beginning his Montessori studies. But as I keep telling Karen, we had a Lloyd and now we have dogs. Fortunately we love dogs-- particularly these two lunkheaded demolition experts, Letty and Lu.

That's all for now, I need to get some sleep... and won't.
