Praline, Praline: sweet and nutty.





You can't imagine how impossibly sweet Miss Praline is.


She's a classic Jack Russell Terrorist which means she is Deathbringer for squirrelses and sockses, but even more than that she loves to cuddle with a reading or napping person. She is smart and attentive and wants very much to please. Sometimes I think she is looking to me with earnest, wanting desperately to convey some deep, important thought(feed me!), but then I remember that she more likely has that Indian head test pattern on permanent loop in her brainpan. The first time he saw her, Himself picked her up as she wiggled with all her might and he said "she's like a salmon on meth!" An apt description. When I come home from work, she wags so ferociously that it looks like she has a dozen hinges in her spine. How can you not smile every day with an exuberant creature like that around? I smile a lot.

She's a darlin snuggly puppeh. Hoping to get the children together soon. :)

"Indian head test pattern"

Wow! It has been years and years since I've used one of those to tune an old analog TV.

Somewhere on youtube is a color bar pattern that plays a song.

Memories...

She is utterly adorable. And she looks as though she would be a warm slightly buzzing little bundle with which to cuddle. No wonder you smile.

She has a great look on her face in this photo :)

Oh yeah, she's got a lot more going on in that little pointy head than she lets on.

Same for Priss; even at roughly 15 years old, she's sneaky and devious, and can clear from one side of the bed to the other and be down the hall to the kitchen in 5 seconds or less if there's a piece of cheese to be had. So far this week, I've lost a bag of Christmas cookies and a candy cane to her by leaving it less than 5 feet off the floor.

Heh. Remember when you thought you could never love another dog after Val, and someone told you God would bring along another dog to heal your heart?

Enter Praline...

She's an adorable fuzz-muffin!

And speaking of what goes on in puppehs' heads...
