Nibbles for Cocopuff

Recently Eddy's cousin Beth and her husband Eli were in the Bay Area.  We forced them to hang out with us because they're fun.

To commemorate the occasion, I baked up some dog treats for their sweet pittie Coco (AKA Cocopuff!)

I baked two flavors: cheddar beef and peanut butter pumpkin.


Okay, so truth be told the treats were actually for Norman and Molly. I mean, there were 150 in all.  That's a freaking lot of dog treats.


Beth and Eli just happened to plan their visit with impeccable timing. But just so you don't think they got short changed, I made this adorable gift bag for their treats.


Just look how much fun it is to come visit us. Everyone should do it.

Crows Don't Like Car Rides

Before we got sweet little adorable puppy Norman,


Eddy had what he called the "Two Pets Per Person Rule." Then of course Norman came along. Then Harry Potter came along.

While I had advocated for the abolition of the Two Pets Per Person Law, four pets were admittedly too many. Once HP found a home, we were back to three. When we lost Ada, we decided we might be ready for a third pet again so along came Molly. As fate would have it, we were destined for a fourth pet. At least for a little while.

The exact day we brought Molly home for the first time, an injured American Crow was downed in our yard.


Thankfully we got to him before the dogs did and were able to safely capture him and keep him fed and watered until we could get him to a rescue organization. We took our friend to the folks at the Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley and they took great care of him. What we learned from this experience is that crows *definitely* do not like car rides.



For the record, I also sort of don't like giving crows car rides.

Small-y Molly

For those of you who haven't been following the unfolding awwwws on Facebook, we have a new Westbrook in this house.

Her name is Molly!


We don't have too many pictures of her solo because everyone loves her so much.





She's a timid girl because she has had some bad scares in her life, but we're teaching her about the good stuff. Like riding in the car,



chasing balls,



and (most importantly!) snuggling on the couch.





She's beginning to be quite the expert on snuggling on the couch.
