Tattle Tale Tuesday

I sometimes do not like being held. Even for Memere.

I am not so laid back as Lucky either. I would NOT like PlusOne to do this to me.

I LIKE my spot on the back of the sofa cushions. Now, if only everyone would leave me in peace, I'd be all set!
And NO, that does NOT make me grumpy. I like my comforts, that's all.

Not Ready For Monday

Mom is not sure she's ready to go back to work today. She rested yesterday after fixing a fence post that had broken. If you look at the top of the photo, you will see the gap between the fence section. Mom had to use her new post digger and dig a 30" hole, insert a 4" x 4" x 8', level it, fill the hole, then attach the fence to it. Then she replaced the wood joining the fence section with brackets. She was sore and tired when she came in. So she wants another day off. I can't say I blame her. I can tell you the blackberries were delicious!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

It's gonna be yukky today, so Lucky and I plan on making the most of it.

What An Awesome Day

Mom thinks this is GREAT! As everyone on the web is saying, Love Triumphs Over All! And we totally agree.

Mom's Gift

PlusOne and his girlfriend bought mom a gift. A blueberry bush. She already knows where she is going to plant it. She is very excited. I'm not so sure. What do blueberries taste like? After I try some I'll let you know.

I can't wait for all these luscious berries to be ready for eating!

And then there are my green beans! This is just one section (which mom needs to weed!). I can't wait for these either.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Ever have one of those days were nothing goes right? Mom had about an hour of that last night, and it stunk. She felt like it was one wrong thing after another. I think I will have to do some serious cuddling to make her feel better. Good thing I'm up to the task!

Not Happy With Me

Dad is NOT HAPPY with me. I have been knocking over the garbage cans and shredding every kleenex I can get my paws on. Dad is not thrilled with that. Mom, on the other hand, would prefer I do that to going on another walk about. Heh, there's always a silver lining to everything, isn't there.

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to the best Dad ever! (What can I say, he gives me more snacks than mom does).

Mad Woman On The Loose!

Mom's cleaning like a mad woman, so Lucky and I are hiding. I realize it's not a terribly secure hiding place, but I am at least out of the way. Mom is working on the garage and the cellar. I know where I'm NOT going!

Oh that PlusOne! lol

Any food in that hand?

What? His head is comfy!

Life Is Hard

PlusOne took Lucky and I to work to pick up Mom yesterday. Mom's boss thought we were SO cute, but she was really sad that Lucky's back legs didn't work so well. Mom told her that Lucky lives a life of ease carried everywhere, pampered and loved. And besides, Lucky is happy, she sleeps with PlusOne every night and gets almost all the food she wants.

Seriously, does this look like life is hard?

Not Even Close Wordless Wedneday

Those are green beans that "ran away" from the garden bed mom planted them in. Seriously, she doesn't know how they got there. I don't care as long as they keep growing.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Hi, my name is Roxy Dragon Pebbles, aka The Devil Dog and this is MY blog. Not PlusOne's, not Mom's, not Dad's, MINE. MINE MINE MINE. It should be about me and ONLY me.
Now that I've gotten that straightened out, this is what I've been up to lately.
Nothing. It's been a boring past couple of days with all the excitement over PlusOne's graduation. Then it rained and rained and rained. 
So I shared the sofa with PlusOne and enjoyed my day.

Monday, June 15, 2015


PlusOne's cousin flew back home (LA) yesterday morning (6:00 am) and promptly crashed for a few hours. I can't say I blame him. When I climbed in bed with mom Saturday night she didn't even move to let me cuddle with her under the blankets she was so dead to the world.

The graduate and his diploma. It's amazing he's so grown up.

Special Day Surprise

PlusOne got a great surprise yesterday when his cousin drove up. 
He flew in from LA on the red eye JUST to be there for PlusOne. Needless to say, PlosOne was thrilled.

As for PlusOne, well, as you can see, he is not taking graduating too seriously.

PlusOne graduates from high school today. Where did the time go?

Friday, June 12, 2015


Used to be I avoided new people coming in to the house, barking at them and sitting far away from them. Now, I like sitting with them, or on them. I guess I am mellowing in my old age. lol  Her shoulder did make a nice pillow.

Sometimes sharing is over rated. Especially when I am forced to share mom's arms with Lucky and she hogs all the space. Of course, Lucky will say that I hog all the space. So I ask you, who's closer to mom and who looks like they could fall out of her arms?

Wordy Wednesday

Auntie made PlusOne a quilt. It has his two favorite colors. Orange and purple. Auntie gave it to PlusOne Saturday. Needless to say, PlusOne had to .... express his joy with the quilt. 

 Yeah, I don't think he likes it.

"I'm a burrito," he told her.

More like a piece of ham, lol

The comments on Auntie's quilting blog were also very funny.
  Plusone is "a special kid, it's easy to see he's got a certain "oomph" for life."
"Now there's a young man who knows how to enjoy a quilt"
"So obvious he loves it....the superhero race around the park made me laugh."
"what a wonderful free spirit your nephew is"
"I can see the quilt matches his personality too"

Though mom wants to know why he's a free spirit and when she acted like this she was just plain weird! lol

Here's the photo of the entire quilt front.

Tattle Tale Tuesday (Don't Freak Out, Mom!)

So, mom and I were doing yard work in the back yard (I was supervising) when I barked at a dog walking by. I went to investigate the gate. Mom told me to get away from the gate. Mom went back to yard work and when she finally looked up the gate was open and I was GONE!!!
Well, you never heard someone panic so loudly in your LIFE. 

Mom came tearing out of the gate looking for me, totally freaking out. When she finally, FINALLY, looked to her left (up the stairs) what do you think she saw?
Me, waiting outside the door to go inside.

Hey Mom, I learned my lesson last year. I am not running away again, EVER!
Sheesh, I am mischievous, not stupid!

Love That Sun!

Mom was in the backyard doing yard work with PlusOne and I was sunbathing on the patio. PlusOne wondered what I liked about the sunshine. Mom told him I was working on my tan. lol

Easy Like Sinday Morning

So, mom went to karate, did some yard work, got all hot and sweaty, took another shower, watched some TV, read a book, played some games, cleaned up the pile of papers on the floor by her computer, and cheered when PlusOne took Third place in the Bagging Competition at the grocery store he works at. He didn't even know there was a competition happening, lol. Silly boy!

It's Saturday

I'm allowed to vegetate on Saturdays. Just ask mom.
Besides, my life is boring (and BOTH mom and I are happy with that). No more walk abouts for me!

Funny Photo Friday

 PlusOne and the pug who came before, Bridget. Bridget was PlusOne's protector. No one could get close to him as a baby, she would always get in their way. lol

Mom thinks it looks like PlusOne is saying "Say WHAT?". Probably what he will say the day after he graduates from High School.

A Little Ham With That Speech

Tuesday was PlusOne's last concert, and as Orchestra President, he got to give the Student Teacher flowers, cards, and a photo of the orchestra. He also gave a little speech, telling her how much they appreciated her and how they hope she does well in the future. 
Then he wouldn't give the microphone back, lol, and took the opportunity to give the Orchestra teacher (PlusOne has known him since fourth grade) flowers and a hat, claiming that his bald head "was a beacon of light in the darkness."
He had the audience in stitches. Several people told mom that if he doesn't do well as an Art Teacher he could always go into Stand Up Comedy!

Tattle Tale Tuesday

I can handle the rain. Really, we need it. My green beans need it. But I just wish it was a teensy tiny bit warmer than 54 degrees. Maybe tomorrow. As for me, you can find me inside, under the covers.
