...my dog and her ability to eat anything.

We have a dog. She is a sweet 10 month old black lab. She is great with the kids, barks only when a stranger walks by the house, and is pretty smart. There's only one thing: she eats everything that she comes in physical contact with. I know she is technically a puppy but some of the things she's chomped just baffles my mind. I understand if something smells or tastes like food but, so far, the only things she's eaten that does resemble food is her dog food itself. The rest of her diet is a complete mystery to me.

Here is a running tally of all this dog has ingested:
- flashlight
- styrofoam (not sure how to spell that)
- cat poop
- candle lantern
- toy car
- her own dog dish which we had to replace with one made of metal
- tree
- firewood
- plastic bag
- newspaper
- rose bush, thorns and all
- all other plants in the yard too numerous to list
- stuffed animals including the stuffing
- beach ball
- sombrero

...Blogging.


I know, how many social networking tools do we need? Well, we have friends and family in many places. This might be a great way to keep everyone updated on our whereabouts, adventures, and how we are doing. I don't want to post status updates all the time. Plus, we are funny sometimes, so it can be a great form of entertainment for people who are really bored. You might crack a smile, "LOL", or shed a tear. However, you will most likely read this and never visit this sight again. Either way, we can at least say we tried. Please be patient as we figure out the world of "blogging".
