Look at what the cat dragged in...

Let me introduce one of my dogs:

This is Alton Brown, peoples. On Monday AB decided it'd be cool if he ran away from home. This was also the day that we found a possom in our house, so I was wee bit annoyed with nature that day. But anyways, AB decided to wander off behind my back. He went under the house and despite my attempts to lure him inside many times, he would always go back under, in front of me. No worries, any other time he goes under there, or gets off his tether, he comes to the back door and barks. Or even the front door. Not Monday though. He wandered off and two nights in a row I left food out for him. AB is deaf, isn't used to cars (we live next to two busy streets and no one follows the speed limit here so he's always out back), etc. He's never been off a tether/leash unless it's when he's out back because he never goes anywhere. Today I called the animal shelter and started describing him, that PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE if you see him, etc call me. Then I hear "Ma'am, I think I am looking at your dog." The animal control guy found him on our street none the less, and even brought him home. Stupid dog acts like he did nothing wrong, I am just happy to have him home. I am a worry-er.

What's this Mom?

Penny's so cool she inspires me. I'm taking a que from her colors. I have an idea, but don't want to say for fear of losing interest. It may be the way she's laying, but doesn't she look uber chunky?
