some randomness

1.  It's Sunday and we're still mourning Thursday's Big Brother episode.  You know you're too hooked to the show when you're still walking around baffled saying, "but she gave her the phone call home"!  It's crazy how fast this season has gone.

2.  So sad for those out there hit by Irene.  I'm thankful this girl (my cousin) wasn't hit too terribly.  She's probably annoyed with my frantic texts and phone calls, but I just had to be sure she wasn't blowing away or in need of a canoe like my pessimistic weather man was leading me to believe.   

3. I'm trying to organize myself.  The back to school supplies have provided some inspiration.  So far I haven't made much progress, actually I haven't done anything.  I'm hoping to sort out all the manuals for stuff that are taking over my house and get rid of some books that I've read and really don't need to hang on to.  We need to have like a blog book swap or something.  Anyone interested?


4. Meet Landry.  Our latest foster pug as of this weekend.  Why do they keep getting sweeter and more lovable?  We're smitten with this dog, especially my husband.  They've really bonded.  He's two and bless his heart is just so shy and timid.  He's just content to be near you.  I need a doggy Bjorn.  He does have some skin problems, which I'm not really familiar in dealing with so if you have any tips I'd be so grateful.  He's has some bald spots and some dryness.  I think a lot of that was caused by stress so I've already noticed a huge difference in a few days.  Pug is a little jealous, but really is getting along pretty good with him.  They make good napping buddies!

You are not alone with the big brother thing. I don't watch it, but after the multitude of tweets/facebook status about it, I feel like I should.

Landry is so dang cute! I'm not realllly sure about skin problems, but I know vitamin e is good for dogs and skin.

Oh, the BB rollercoaster!! Although after last night's episode, I kept saying, "I can't believe I'm actually pulling for Rachel"!!!! Best Pandora's box ever!

It is so wonderful that you guys are fostering again. Landry is a cutie. A few other pug bloggers have said that coconut flakes work really good for the skin and coat and their dogs gobble them up...yummy!
Love,
Payton

Oh my gosh he is precious! Loving him lots, bless his heart with the skin issues. No fun. Like I metnioned before, try maybe adding a fish oil capsule to his food for a few days and see if the dandruff decreases.

Look at the sweet little black pug! Oh, I love him!
I'm right with you on Big Brother. She really made a stupid move, though. I'm ready for her to go!

Landry is so cute. I want a pug so bad!!! :) Does he have hot spots? Our golden has them bad and he loses his hair in spots because of them.(Sometimes they're really big spots that look so painful)

And I would LOVE to do a book swap! I have so many books that I've read and now are just collecting dust. And I have a whole box of books in storage! Yikes!
