1 dog year = 7 human years… I think.

Regardless of the dog to human year conversion, today is Dora's birthday! She is one year old. We will be having cake in her honor!

I wonder when she'll stop chewing everything up…


She can’t help it…

It's just so fun to play in the mud!

At least she's helping us get used to cleaning up all kinds of messes. Those skills will come in handy with the baby around I'm sure!

Scaping our land…

March 27, 2006

We talked to a landscaper this week. We're finally going to get our backyard done. We've been in our house for almost three years and we haven't so much as picked up a rock out there. Basically we've used it as a gigantic dog toilet up until this point.

We decided earlier this year that we wanted to have it done by the time the baby is born. The dogs just bring too much dust into the house (if you are not familiar with Vegas, we live in a giant bowl of dust). I had a lot of allergies when I was young and I would hate for the baby to live in a house full of dust and dog dander.

So basically we are going to lay down some grass along with some trees, shrubs, and decorative stone. It will eliminate our dust problem for the time being. I'm not too excited about having to manicure a yard… I'm not really into mowing. We wanted to go with the synthetic grass, but the landscaper talked us out of it. Apparently it's not good with pets.

Good thing I'm having a son. Before I know it he'll be begging me for spending cash and I can send him out to cut the grass. As for now, I'm off to the yellow pages to find a cheap lawn-care company.

My dog is an animal!

As cute as she may look… this little girl can chew through steel! Well, steel may be pushing it… but barely! Point is, she’s a hulk-dog who will stop at nothing to chew this house down to the foundations.

What does Dora the hulk-dog have to do with this blog? That’s what I’m trying to figure out…. What effect will having a baby around have on Dora? Will it stress her out? Will she be happy to have us home a lot more? I guess we won’t really know until the baby gets here.

I will definitely update on Dora’s adjustments as we get closer and closer to the big day. In the mean time… check out what she did to one of our chairs. Yeah, that’s solid wood!
