I Knew I'd Regret That Trick...


We've had Camelot-like weather in Portland, which is to say it's only rained at night; the days have been fine and clear. As a result, Gabbie's been back to play more.

The other day, she and Charlie were zooming around the yard, playing chase, when Charlie turned and streaked towards me. I expected him to veer off at the last minute, as usual, but I guess he'd decided to go through my legs... at full speed... without them being particularly open...

What's that phrase... a** over teacup? Well, anyway, down I went, fortunately more surprised than hurt. And Charlie and Gabbie raced on.

Maybe I won't encourage that wind-through-my-legs trick quite so much anymore. :)

Ouch! Chloe always does this to mommy's leg & every time she slams into them, her knew would have like a knuckle crack. She says it's very very very painful! She doesn't fall, just that her knee has been pushed backwards. Yes, it sounds very painful!

Love licks,

Oh yes, We know that one over here. Problem is, if Sophie is really happy and really likes someone, she just has to go through their legs. It's just the way it is.

Hi Charlie
I've missed you !!!
I've knocked mum over too. Hobson, Rose and me dragged mum over the other day and she fell on a concrete curbing. She wasn't as worried about the bruises as she was if she had not been able to keep holding onto us. Hobson has to wear his halty now which he hates, but until he stops pulling mum, he's going to have to wear it. Hehehe.
Love from Hammer
