"The Dog WhoWill Not be Ignored"

I see that my mother has given my dog this phrase after her name, similar to Maddie, The Amazing Barking Dog. I don't see anything Amazing in Bonnie's name, YET. I'm going to teach her how to dial 9-1-1 with her nose, and then we'll see what her name is after she saves your life someday, Big Lou. Hmmmphh. :)
This weekend we headed to Kendallville for the Apple Festival, one of my favorite weekends of the entire year. I was bragging to Brent that it was my 18th consecutive year attending the Fest, but I shut up after realizing that it was Ashley's 23rd consecutive year, which would also be the same age as the festival. I think she should do it up on the 25th anniversary by eating 25 Apple Fritters or something equally ridiculous. Or buying 25 arrowheads in the primitive area.
Speaking of Apple Fritters, I ate three this weekend. Yes, I am gross. I felt so lethargic on Saturday night - what with my body trying to process all the fat and whatnot - that I went to bed at 9:00. Don't worry if you think I got too much sleep though, because I got to clean exploding cage poo about three times that night.
It was a great weekend of hometown fun with Ashley, Laura, Emma, and Greg. We left pretty early on Sunday afternoon because Bonnie was getting close to overstaying her welcome with the all-night barking and peeing on the living room carpet. We were able to listen to the Colts' game on the drive home and Brent nearly swerved the car several times in that last six minutes. The Colts are scary this year! Glad they squeaked it out.
This is too funny not to post.
Who are those two pioneers wandering down the road? Whoops, my parents, who had to walk home because I didn't hear my phone...three times. Maybe Bonnie wasn't the only bad houseguest this weekend...

I missed the memo on College Day at the Fest

I hear that Emily is getting impatient for more Bonnie pictures, so without further ado, here is more of The Dog Who Will Not be Ignored.

Bonnie likes helping me study for the CPA exam. She would like for me to pass already so I have more time to pay attention to her.

Bonnie and Roxanne - "There's about to be a what? A dog fight!"

The puppies were wild!

She really likes to help make dinner, do dishes, or whatever it is we're doing in the kitchen. She wants to be in the action, so sitting on this box must help her feel included. The original purpose was to keep her from crawling behind the stove, but I'm glad to see it serves a dual purpose.

All tuckered out from a 2-mile walk...we were trying to wear her out and it worked...

And last but not least...please take note that Larissa has a blog now! We are all sure to be entertained.
