3 down, 3 to go.

Still sliding though the holiday season doing my best to pretend they are not really here. Yup, seasonal unhappy is in full swing this year. I do not know why, but this year I am kinda OK with em, maybe because I had a year off from them last year, maybe because I have more than enough else to do I can ignore it for the most part.

Maybe its because we are having fun days In the courtyard where someone met another chi today, missed that photo op since the second she saw a dog smaller than her, she went up the stairs as fasts as a tripod can do em (actually she handles stairs quite well.)

Also proud as hell of this three legged pup.
She is back to crate life when I leave for work, mostly because she can JUMP ON A COUNTER?!?!? No lie, someone decided she deserved a loaf of bread and half the box of dog buiscuts tuesday night. So she went up there and got em..... washed em down with the tub sponge to boot, seperation anxiety............ Guess we all get it, and make bad choices when we have it. Still learning from a 3-legged dog.

Todays side note: Wine tasting during transfer showed a sweeter wine than hoped for, we have 6 more weeks of in canister fermenting to go so hopefully the yeast will suck down more of the sugars and add lovely alchol content. Looked at a 6 gallon set up so maybe thats what I will give myself for chistmas, thinking a cab/shiraz for attempt #2, that offers a 30 bottle yeild which I will self label if I do and send around, still months off so keep your addresses for now, Cuz we all know your all dying to sample some of my bad wines (ok no idea if bad yet or not, but it is your crap shoot if you volunteer).

So. Cute.
Oh yes, never underestimate what a dog will do. Especially to get that tub sponge. Mmm. Spongy.

Making home-made wine is not so hard. Making GOOD home-made wine is very hard.

Well we will have to see how it goes, bout a month from bottling, actually just came home from the brew store, going to make a 6 gallon batch of Pinot noir today. See what comes from that but the owner was there and gave me and Lefty about a 2 hour class on it, showed me some other things to try, and ways to keep the wine from being too sweet.

Also Gave me hints on how to make a galic/jalepeno wine they swear makes the best marinade ever, and only takes 9 days to ferment properly, might make a gallon this weekend to see...... send addresses for 750ml samples.....

Don't you DARE cook with that marinade. Leave it to the professionals and bring it over! :)

Don't feel bad about the crate. Dogs feel safe there and once they get used to it, they will go into it by themselves whenever they want to.

Little Joey may have to revert to his, too. Chloe the Rottie is in heat and apparently he's trying to show what a man he is by peeing all over the house and furniture. This has got to stop!
