A Morning in the Life of Country Mouse

I received an email from Country Mouse this morning and thought I would share it with you. This is a good example of the different lifestyles we have. Warning: do not read if you are in the process of eating or drinking or you may a) be grossed out or b) burst out laughing and spew food/drink all over. I warned you!

Country Mouse says:
Well, my day so far: Went to let the dogs out in my big mama pink bathrobe that my thoughtful but clueless husband gave me for Christmas. My showdog Lady clamps onto a decapitated bird (robin?) that the cat thoughtfully placed at the front door. As I'm screaming "drop it" while people are driving by on their way to work here comes Mindy all covered with burrs from her morning romp through the woods. I was unable to pry the jaws of steel open so Lady got her breakfast (which I'm sure will be regurgitated shortly). After holding Mindy down and picking dozens of burrs off of her we all came in and I'm having coffee and the fur babes are all sleeping after wolfing down breakfast. Anyway....

Too bad we didn't have a video to go along with that. But here's a picture of "showdog" Lady after a swim at the lake. She is a King Charles Cavalier that we adopted from relatives who rescued her along with many others from an unfortunate home.

I hope your day is off to a good start! Have a wonderful weekend! Oh and THANK YOU to everyone who read our post in The Storque! Your comments make us smile :)


  1. We used to own a cavalier, too! The sweetest and most lovable pup. :) Your blog is great!!!

  2. They truly do have the sweetest little personality, you can never be upset with them for very long :)

  3. Your little lady is sooo cute! Thanks for sharing this with us. Hope you had a good weekend and have a lovely week ahead!

  4. I just found your shop and blog via the etsy storque article! I read aloud this post to my husband, as we are parents to two feline fur-babies. We laughed out loud, as pets can be so dang disgusting, lovable, wonderful, and endearing. Thank you for making me laugh out loud on a lazy Sunday evening!
