Sweet Little Hell Beast

Hello, internet.  Have you been longing for a list?  I bet you have!

My little dude and I spend most of our time together, but while I was traveling, I was away from Vista for over a week!  Insanity!  She kept busy at my parents' house, though, mostly by eating.  Here is a list of things she ate (that we know about anyways):

1 lb of Halloween candy
1 loaf of zucchini bread
1 chicken breast
1 bag of yogurt-covered raisins
1 dried apricot (abandoned the rest, presumably not to her taste)
1 stick of butter
1 package of graham crackers (taken out of the ceramic, lidded cookie jar)
Untold amount of dog treats (also removed from a closed jar)

From this we learned that height is no object (she leaped on and walked all over the kitchen counters and a large desk), and neither are things with lids.  She has yet to figure out cabinets, however, or any other kind of door.  You haven't beaten me yet, dog!

For those who are concerned, I am well aware of the types of foods which are poisonous to dogs, when to call poison control, and even what to do should I need to make whatever she ate, erm, reappear.  She's got a cast iron stomach though, I think.  Only the candy put her off her food, and nothing made her sick.

After I returned from Denver, my father confided in me that my mom was concerned that, having finally rid themselves of my brother's dog, they'd end up with mine.  Haha!  I wouldn't do that to you, Mom.  I wouldn't do that to my worst enemy.


  1. I think Vista was acting out because she wanted some Auntie/Niece bonding time.

    I'm just sayin'.

  2. So what you're saying is that it's all your fault for living in New York. Yeah, I can see that.

  3. Whatevs.

    You should bring her to visit me. You KNOW she would love it. Even if her Mama didn't.

  4. I honestly have no idea how she'd react to an urban environment. She's never been in one.

  5. Vista! Tell your Mama that you want to come and spend quality time with your Auntie Laura!

    If she doesn't acquiese, then I think you should strike. Make a few picket signs! March for your right to visit your Auntie!

    "Heigh ho, I wanna go. Visit Auntie Laura who has lots of treats-oh!"
