The Claw on Flickr.What can I say, they told me to take them to my leader, so I did.  The Long and Short of it is maybe they should have been more specific, like Don’t take us to the big furry one with cat poop breath.

The Leader Of The Pack on Flickr.You know it’s true deep down in your heart … R2D2 is the bad guy!!!  There, I said.  It’s true.  R2D2 is the bad guy.  He grew up with young Anakin Skywalker,  You Know, ‘Luke I Am Your Father’ Darth Vader.  Also, why do you think he would know how to tap into the main computer on the Empires Death Star???  Hmm?  I ask you, How??  And I am pretty sure I saw him High Five a Stormtrooper off in the distance the other day and I am almost positive I saw him at the Copacabana last night with a Battle Droid Babe in each … um, I guess you would call those arms.  So, I stand here today to tell you all, cute or not, R2D2 is the Bad Bad guy!

I Wish … on Flickr.That wasn’t the last roll of toilet paper.
It wouldn’t be so bad if I I believed he didn’t know any better but when you catch him in the act and he hikes up on two legs and runs down the hallway with his other paws waving in the air madly while screaming in a High Pitched Girly Voice and slides sideways under the bed all before you can even say a word … I have a tendency to believe he may have had an inkling he was bad.

Rolled on Flickr.SO not how I ever imagined this would turn out.
Long Story short.
We bought a HUGE Purple bouncy ball for a dollar at Walmart thinking Inde would love it for about a day ( I was being realistic).  I saw the challenge Roll/Rolled and thought it perfect for the shot.  SOOOOO, I stood at the end of the long hallway, kicked it, the dogshot off like a rocket after it, the ball bounced around the corner and out of sight into the bedroom with the dog right behind it and then there was a loud, and I mean loud, BOOM.  I ran into the bedroom to find the dog sitting on a big purple rubber heap flat on the ground and the cat less than one foot away with it’s hair plastered back as if it were standing in Hurricane force winds.  I got the biggest WTF look from that feline.  And then … Would you all stop looking at me that way.  This is NOT my fault, it most certainly WAS the dogs fault 100%.
So, It may have only lasted about 15 seconds but  it was after all, only a dollar.  So the only who really doesn’t think it was worth it is my little WTF feline.  (I know I’m going to pay for this)

Bad Timing on Flickr.This is Inde showing off his Jurassic Park The Lost World Glow In The Dark (yeah, you heard me, GLOW IN THE DARK) digital watch.  Portable time.  It’s so portable that right after this photo was taken, he took of like a bat of a hot place under your feet and it took me over 20 minutes to catch up to him and the watch.  
I was going to take a photo of the dogs water dish because apparently IT’S portable also

I Was Just Giving It Kissies, See on Flickr.I held the Spongebob Squarepants and Patrick watch up to Inde and asked him in a deep and rather butch voice, Don’t Eat!  He looked over to me with those big brown innocent puppy eyes and said, Oh No, I just give it kissies, see?  I nodded, laid down next to the camera and looked through the view finder only to see the dang dog chompin’ away on Spongebob and Patrick!  I Jumped up and went to sternly say NO but before anything came out I noticed he was just lying there giving them kissies.  
So, once again in my deep and rather butch voice I told Inde, Don’t Eat!  He looked up at me with those big brown dog eyes and said, Oh No, I just give it Kissies, see?  I nodded once again, laid down and looked through the view finder once more only to see a blur of teeth and watch!  With lightning speed, I popped up, opened my mouth, pointed my finger at the dog and went to … the sneaky bastard was laying there next to the watch giving it Kissies!
Again, I held the watch and in a deeper and I must say extremely butch voice told the dog, Don’t Eat.  He looked up at me with those big brown full of you know what eyes of his and bold faced lied to me, Oh No, I just give it Kissies, see.  With that, he stretched out, puckered his lips, inhaled and sucked Spongebob and Patrick right up and into the big cavernous cat poop smelling mouth of his!  I jumped up and yelled in a high pitched shrilly girl voice, SPIT THEM OUT SPIT THEM OUT SPIT THEM OUT.  I swear he snickered before he turned his head and spat them out.

He Was Obviously MORE Excited Than I Was on Flickr.While cleaning up what was left of a pillow, which wasn’t much, I found Wilson here under the couch.  I was so excited, I jumped up and yelled INDE!  He came running, saw what I had and pee’d on the floor.  I don’t get it, I don’t pee on the floor when I get excited.  Not yet anyway.

When Darkness Falls on Flickr.Forget it, I’m a asleep.  No nightlife for me.  I have to get up at 3:45 am.  In fact, when I saw the challenge After Dark, I went to the bathroom!

The Gruesome Death Of Mr Pickles on Flickr.Ok, which one of you wiseguys picked Pickles to photograph for today’s challenge???  I have a dog you know!  It was a disaster from the moment I started.  I propped Mr Pickles up, told him to smile, looked through the view finder of my camera and saw nothing but Teeth and Fur!  I jumped back just in time to see a giant Hairball dash out of the kitchen with Mr Pickles dangling out of the left side of a snout that mysteriously smelled like cat poop.  I made chase and the dog ran faster.  Then he flew into the bedroom and slid butt first under the bed as if he was sliding into Home Plate. 
As the dog chewed Mr Pickles, my mind raced with how to save him.  Finally, I got it.  I ran back to the kitchen, opened the fridge, grabbed what I needed, then ran back to the bedroom.  And with an apology to Mr Carrot, I chucked him under the bed where Inde quickly dropped what was left of Mr Pickles and … well, it wasn’t pretty.  Mr Carrot is kind of everywhere now.
And after all that, your dang right I’m gonna photograph Mr Pickles and put it up no matter how gruesome it is.

Mixed Nuts on Flickr.Inde asked me the other day if he was Pedigree or not.  I told him no, he was a mixed breed.  He cried for a minute, looked up at me with those big puppy eyes and asked, what mix am I?  So I told him, Your half Dork and half Doofus.  He cried a little more and looked up at me one more time with those big puppy eyes and said, But I can’t be, I’m Smart.  I wear Glasses.  I reached up to my face, picked my nose and sadly told him, Sweetheart, those are Geek Glasses, you don’t need them.  Anyway, they are My Geek Glasses, not yours.  He farted, smiled and said oh good, then tossed them in the swimming pool where it took me 15 minutes to fish them out with the skimmer net.  Apparently he is part Dirty Rat also.
