Noelle Steps Up

Ziggy has always provided me with a lot of material for my blog.  Unfortunately, Ziggy is leaving for boot camp on Saturday, so I was a bit worried about finding things to write about.  Actually, I was just worried that I wouldn't know what to do with all my time if I wasn't chasing Ziggy around constantly and ordering him to behave like a nice normal dog for just once in his life.

I need not have worried.  Noelle, my sweet, wonderful, deaf pit bull, and first canine honorary member of the Naughty Kitty Club, has decided to help fill the void while Ziggy is gone.  I caught her practicing the other day, by counter surfing and stealing a cigarette lighter.   She then ran off with it and settled down to chew it into pieces.

Neither my husband or I smoke, but we usually have a candle or two lit, hence the lighter.  I guess Noelle thought the house smelled just fine without the help of any candles, because she was none too happy when I removed the lighter before she had the opportunity to chew on it.

It's good to know that things will stay somewhat interesting around here even while Ziggy is gone.

Noelle, thanks! We couldn't stand the thought that your mom was bored!

Bon voyage, Ziggy! I'm betting someone will be falling in love with you while you're at camp!

Happy tails!
Stumpy and me

Maybe she just wanted to light her own candle.

I agree-maybe she didn't think there were enough candles lit. :)
Good luck Mr. Z. (Sorry don't know how to spell his name LOL).

Good job, Noelle! That's very much thoughtful of you to keeps your mom occupied while you're gone.

And good luck, Ziggy! Be good and pay attention to your drill sargents. How long will you be gone? Write if you have time!

Wiggles & Wags,

Oh Noelle, I bet she loves to play the "I can't hear you" card at times like those. It cracks me up that you, like me, first take pictures of bad behavior, then remedy the situation. Give Ziggy a good luck kiss from us!

It's great that Noelle is thinking of you to keep you entertained. Also, I know you were looking into raising money for Ziggy's bootcamp. Our doggy daycare owner told us about a grant program for pit bulls from PBRC:
