“Uhm… excuse me, Miss Wanna-Be-Dog-Whisperer?”
“I know I let you think you have the power sometimes so you feel a little more ‘Alpha Dog-ish’ but I think I’m going to have to lay down the law here. I’m only 5 years old, for heaven’s sake. This beard I seem to be growing is what we canines like to call ‘premature aging’.”
“I don’t think I need to remind you about the bad hair day I had a few weeks ago, do I? Seriously. CUT. MY. HAIR.”

“Ahhh… see, now this is what I’m talking about. You get much less frazzled when I look cute while I’m being ornery. Trust me, this was as much for you as it was for me.”
“Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some work to do… these canvas winner names don’t get drawn all by themselves, you know. Don’t worry, we can pretend you’re the alpha-human around here as soon as I make this announcement…”
The winner of yesterday’s canvas is:
STEPHANIE: Snuggle time with Dylan.
Congratulations! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address and I’ll get your canvas sent to you! :)
Thanks for playing along everyone… I loved reading every one of your comments yesterday. You all have such precious moments to savor and I learned something from each and every one of you.
And in case you’re curious… I cut a good three inches off my hair yesterday and am pleased to tell you that it happened before I took my meds, so I was alert and aware of every cut. It’s so much less stressful waking up in the morning when I REMEMBER the reason my hair is shorter! :)
