Oh baby.

Iggy Pup, tell me – any new fabulous fashion trends the people should be aware of? I’m sorry what??? Cones, bow harnesses and orange gloves?

Oh, its true. You do look fabulous.

Poor little Iggy broke his dew claw pretty badly and it was causing him a lot of pain. We took a trip down to the vet today and now he suffers the indignity of having a little orange bandaged foot and handmade couture cone harness. It all comes off Friday…but come on, thats pretty pathetically cute.

I haven’t laughed so hard as when we put him down on the floor and he had to walk around for the first time with his club foot and cone head. Needless to say – he totally SPAZZED out. I wish I had a video, I’d watched it everyday.

Apologies for being one of those annoying pet people. I just couldn’t resist this awesome little outfit.

The new bookcase doors are pretty much complete. We painted them with a high gloss white enamel and stained the handles a nice walnut.

Everything looks a bit naked, especially with the sad state of the butterfly chairs.

Now feel free to tell me how horrified you are at how we closed up those shelves. Even The Boy says he liked it better before…

It is a hell of a lot less dusty and I can hide all sorts of shiz. Of course the whole room is in need of being styled up a bit.

I was also thinking that now all the ugly electronic stuff could be hidden in the shelves. Like ugly radio units or cable boxes – you know – whatever. There are electrical plugs inside the cabinets and ways to hide the cables if someone desperately wanted to put a television above the fireplace. Which undoubtedly the next owners probably will do.

Just open the doors to use whatever electronics your heart desires and close them up to hide all the ugly away. The Boy will be happy that our ugly as crap stereo can now go in the living room.

So what is in store for the other side of the living room? There is a tiny wee hint in the above pic. We are trying hard to finish it up…its been such a huge pain in the ass.
