Whiskey & Slaw

Whiskey cracks me up! Every day he does something new and funny. Each time one of you talks about your child, I swear Whiskey has done it as well, except for the cute talking part :) . Here are a few things we love(sometimes) about Whiskey:

-he eats rocks
-he eats dirt
-he actually will eat anything
-he always licks the dishwasher when I am filling and emptying it
-he always stands on the dishwasher whenever it's open
-he LOVES the taste of pledge (we cannot dust anywhere near him or he will run toward you and lick all of the furniture)
-he always sits under each fuschia when I water so that it drips on him
-he licks cracks (i.e. sidewalks, patios, fireplace stone, etc...)
-he LOVES cucumbers (I usually give him the end and he will play with it for 15 mins and then eat it right up!)
-he picks toys out of his kennel one at a time when we are getting ready for bed
-he protests when it's time to go for a walk (usually 3-4 times)
-he eats dried slugs
-in the morning on his way downstairs for the first time, he usually stretches causing him to slide down the first flight on his belly
-he loves a windy day because he gets to chase the leaves
-he likes to put his top half on the bathtub and drink water from the faucet
-he loves the hose, especially when on
-if I am trying to sleep in on my day off, he sits on the floor at the bottom of the bed and watches me quietly for any little move. If I move even an inch he runs over and barks at me to get up!
-he always stands on our hillside in the backyard and causes an avalanche so he can chase the rocks down the hill

Last night I made "Santa Fe Slaw" from Sunset magazine
In a large bowl, combine 4 cups shredded green cabbage, 2 cups torn spinach, 1.5 cups shredded jicama, 2 chopped green onions, 1 cup cooked corn, 1 cup finely chopped tomatoes, and 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup each mayo and sour cream, 2 tbsp finely chopped canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, and 2 tbsp fresh lime juice. Pour dressing over slaw mixture and stir until combined. Season to taste with salt.

Just catching up on your blog. Whiskey is absolutley adorable. I look forward to meeting him. Roxie did the same thing with toilet paper several times and we finally had to put the rolls on the counter. One day she had toilet paper upstairs and downstairs and everywhere. I couldn't stop laughing as I cleaned it up. Puppies are so much fun and Whiskey sounds like he has an extra fun personality.
Love you,

He is SO much fun and we are loving every minute! And yes, he did jump in the shower with my sister and he loved every minute of it!!

Danice, I cannot believe you haven't met Whiskey yet!! You need to come over again or we can bring him to FW soon.

I have been laughing out loud reading about Whiskey! He's hilarious, I can't wait to see him in action soon. We're due for a weekend together. Andy and I are in the process of moving into the Kirkland apartment. So, for these next few weekends, we're busy but after that, let's get together on your next free weekend.
P.S. The slaw sounds amazing.
