Frisket's Spring Bath Kerchief

Frisket got a bath today down the street at Perfect Paws. Have come to a happy medium with her where we generally try to get her bathed every 6-8 weeks unless she has a mud-tas-trophe.

Here's a couple pix of her post-bath (all fluffy still) with her jazzy kerchief (in matching purple!):

Dog could cost you your insurance - Dog could cost you your insurance: Some insurance companies have decided to not underwrite policies for homeowners who have certain breeds, which they say are more prone to biting.

Salvatore said homeowners should know if they have an aggressive dog, which insurance companies will determine based on their own dog-bite claim experience, it could affect their homeowners policy. "The way insurance works, they are going to look at what is their experience and what is the projected experience," Salvatore said. The underwriting, how an individual insurance company prices its products is very important. That is how they compete. Some companies just believe the risk is too great for them to financially handle.

Working like a lapdog

Frisket decided to curl up against me as I was working on the couch today.

Squirrel torture

So, Frisket and I are sitting on the couch in our den. The den is on what's essentially the fifth floor of our brownstone. The back third of the floor was converted to an outdoor deck many years ago, and there's wall-to-wall windows (erm, well, that is the back wall of the house facing the deck is all windows).

For the past hour, a squirrel has been racing around on the deck, hitting all of the planters for the various buried nuts and other bits of food it has left there. Poor Frisket has had to watch this Squirrel racing around on her deck, because mean Dad will not let her outside onto the deck to chase the Squirrel.

There is a 60 foot drop on two sides (actually more like a 70 foot drop to one side, not that that extra ten feet matter), and the squirrel seems to dart off one side, seemingly tempting fate, and then reapppears on the opposite side. Now, perhaps it's running very fast across the back wall, or I'm really just not that observant, but it does seem to be teleporting from one side of the deck to the other, torturing Miss Frisket to no end.

Sorry, no photos of this, though you can entertain yourself with previous photos of Frisket and her squirrel obsession.
