Wordless Wednesday: I Can't See You!

My friend Di has a Small Bad Dog, and is dogsitting Large Yellow Dog for her landlady.  Mostly they get along, but every once in a while:

What do you mean I'm sitting on the other dog's leash?  What other dog?

  2. Dogs can make you laugh!
    I see that today is Stephen King's birthday. If you ever get the chance, he wrote a book about writing. It is called "On Writing", I think, and it is very good AND it is not scary! :-)
