You want to know why there’s no updates? Because we spend all out time watching Annie. She is, to put it delicately, mischievous.
Lauren says she’s “naughty”.
I say she’s EVIL!
A partial list of things she’s destroyed thus far:
A Wii controller
Numerous carboard boxes
A beloved Nintendo DS-Lite game
A beloved book
Another beloved book
A camera case (for small cameras)
Numerous water bottles
A bicycle helmet
A “wedding bear” from our wedding (15 years old)
She has figured out how to open the “dog proof” garbage, and enjoys searching for treasures while were not home – and sometimes when we are!
She doesn’t just put her nose on the counter, she jumps right up and digs in.
She ate ALL of the Valentine’s Day chocolate I got for my kids. She was fine. BTW she had to get on the counter, then open three containers, then foil wrappers to get to the goods.
BTW she acted like a LUNATIC for about four hours thereafter. She was like the road-runner on speed.
She knows the rules. She simply ignores them. She’s jumped up on the counter right next to Lauren while she’s cooking. She’s grabbed for the expensive universal remote while I was watching. She gives me this look of complete disdain from time to time as if to say “I know you won’t beat me, so &%*#-you.”
She is LOADED with personality. She’ll walk by me and just jam her nose into me – for fun. She runs circles around poor Grimace, and bites his ankles when he’s not playing.
She is a 100% certified pain in the ass, and we love her to pieces.
We’re trying to come up with something to get her mind more engaged, because she’s clearly bored. I told Lauren that we should let her do crosswords…
