Dog Tails

Nope.  It’s not about my two loons.

Went to a wedding shower Saturday for my nephew. He’s a “young” (26) kid who is getting hitched to a cute redhead he’s known since high school. Those two seemed to be made for each other. The wedding is in two weeks out in the country and is supposed to be a “Casual Ranch Affair”. We’re still trying to figure what that translates into for attire.

We attended a wedding shower over at her parent’s house Saturday night.  Very nice party, but, honestly, I just wasn’t up for it.  Had a massive headache that I was trying to work through and wasn’t in a party mood.  I popped some Advil and thought I could manage a glass of wine but that just amplified the problem.

The folks have a very nice house.  They even have a one of those skinny little Daschunds that is all of 5 inches high and 10 inches long. Cute little dog.  I tend to make friends with most dogs as I have two highly needy ones at home.  Besides, I like petting or playing other dogs just to give my herd something to check out when I get home.

Of course being good hosts, there was lots of food & drink throughout the house.  In the living room there was an end table with a bowl of nuts/cashews.  While cracking jokes with my other nephew and his wife, we observed the little dog proceed to stand up on his little hind legs and proceed to chow down on some of the nuts. To me, it appeared this wasn’t a new trick for him.  I found this amusing (or perhaps gross?) given I had just had a handful of nuts from the very same bowl.  

You always should keep an eye on your nuts...

Casual ranch style? Dallas? You could be a great JR!

I think "casual ranch style" means you dress like the country music celebrities. Wear a tuxedo jacket, shirt and tie with your Wrangler jeans and cowboy boots!

(I don't really know. I just made that up.)

At least you got to enjoy your nuts before the dog ruined your appetite for them!

LOL @ Terri's comment!

I probably would have freaked out if I realized I ate nuts out of the same bowl as a dog.

I know a family that has an obese weiner dog that routinely sits on its butt with its front paws up like a human. I think it makes the food more accessible.

Casual ranch style? I'm seeing boots and bolo ties. I have no idea what that means for females.
