Among the endless stream of crafty ideas emanating from my wife's mind, I really like the Art Wall she created for Thea – particularly since it brightens up our sunroom. But I also really enjoyed the stream of dog bone images that arrived on my iPhone last week after Thea melted down Thursday morning and I left for work.
The day before, Thea had insisted we buy Rilo, our dog, a ginormous dog biscuit at the pet store; Rilo ate it in less than a minute. The next morning, Thea wanted to buy Rilo another ginormous dog biscuit, and collapsed in hysterics when we told her that Rilo would be a "chubby bunny" if she ate more huge cookies.
It turns out that Nikole and Thea spent that morning cutting dog biscuits out of paper and coloring them with crayons. Hysterics turned to delight. A sampling of Thea's colorful dog cookies now hangs on the Art Wall.
