So, I bought a house today
My first home, to be specific. Yay, me! I think that all the pups will be happy there, too. AND, there's only one step in the entire house, so my big (now 3-legged) Dane can save his energy for climbing on/off my bed (where he is, right now).

I'm very fortunate/lucky/blessed to have been able to do this, considering the times we live in.

Can't wait 'til 2037 when she'll be all paid for! SO...who wants to help me move?







(considering how many words rhyme with "house" I look forward to a plethora of copycats)

55. Yeah, well if you'd stop throwing your underwear at every
Rick Derringer impersonator I bring along, I could go with a higher class of entertainment.

7. He's doing well, thank you.
He starts chemo next week, matter of fact. I, of course, base his quick recovery on my cooking all his meals for him. I'm such a sucker.

11. This is him post-op


He's a little...uh, groggy in that shot. I've had danes throughout my childhood, but he's my first one of my own. He's got a little something else in him. Two-time shelter loser, this one.

Your username sort of gives your "dane-ness" away. You got any pics?

16. Extremely well
He's in very good shape, so that helps. I'm surprised that he's doing so well, so soon (knock wood) considering how big he is.

Your girl is a beauty, btw.

If I were in warm, sunny Florida, instead of chilly, sunny NYC, I'd be there to help you move.

Good luck, and much happiness to you and the pups in the new home.

to put a few extra bucks on the principal every month and you won't have to wait to 2037 to have it paid for.

25. Congrats to the dogs on having scammed you into taking a 30 year loan to buy them a toilet.
Oh, and while I'm at it, congrats on getting a house and stuff. :*

I'd be happy to come help you move, but I have a feeling that we wouldn't get much done. ;)

27. OMG!!! That is exactly what I said to my husband the other day
when the dog peed *yet again* on the carpet. :rofl:

He felt so bad he went out and got several gallons of carpet cleaner and spent the morning doing it.

I love the dogs but Jeebus, why can't they use the pee pads or go out?

29. We were joking about this last night.
He looked at yards first and the houses on them second. So he just took out a mortgage on a larger yard/dog toilet that happens to have a decent house on it too.

Re: the pee on the carpet thing, AFAIK, Simple Green seems to work as well as the enzyme cleaner stuff.

31. Gah. It drives me frickin' bonkers.
I bought that Urine Gone, didn't really work, but the Bissell (or maybe Hoover) remover seems to remove the stain/smell on contact, like in the OxyClean commercials.

And, one of my neighbors just started a canine cleanup business where she will come to our yard and *ahem* remove the offending matter once a week. $15 a week. A bargain at any price. No more yelling at those damn Midlo Kidlos to clean up the dog poop and having the little one get the dry heaves. :eyes:

A really high end cat toilet costs $100 and cleans itself.

43. Now that you mention it...
since Pamela Anderson and Kidrock are divorcing, that just. might. happen.

She's...buoyant, to say the least. Plus, with her here, I can probably get Tommy Lee and the Motley Crue boys to play at my birthday.

was it scary? When I signed the loan papers for my house, it was surreal to think about putting myself into debt for thirty years; more surreal to think someone would lend me that much money. :scared:

I think you should put the dogs to work helping you move; y'all would look great as a line of dogs pulling travois' laden with household goods and you leading the way.
