Pathetic Tripod

I got home from lunch today and couldn't find Lola. Usually locating her isn't an issue...she is either right there to greet you as you walk through the door, or she is laying on her bed that is in full view of the door wagging her little nubby tail. But today, neither of those situations were playing out. I hollered and hollered. I went into my room (on occasion, she has followed me in there and not followed me back out, thus resulting in imprisonment in my room), but she wasn't there. I was starting to think she had "R-U-N-N- O-F-T!" (name that movie).

Then I go into the other "wing" of the house (that makes it sound real grand, or course, it isn't) and find her sitting on the guest bed in a frozen position...statute like...holding this pose...

Look up "Pathetic Tripod" in the dictionary and they are now using this photo.

Somehow, while I was gone to lunch, this little dumpling managed to hurt her paw. I have no idea how long she had been frozen like that. Of course this photo was taken after I got her down and tried to make her walk it off. She obviously resumed the position on the couch.

It wasn't all bad for little Lo, she got a special dispensation and was allowed to nap on MY bed all afternoon. That seems to have done the trick for now and the paw seems to be on the mend.

In other news, you guys can thank me later, but I have solved all your Holiday shopping troubles. I have found that gift that everyone is sure to love and it was located at Half Price Books so it is cheap too. Are you ready to see it? Are you sure you can handle it?

you haven't seen nothin' yet...
the back:

I mean it's a calendar, they are rodents wearing hats, and they are on location shoots, so what's not to love!

Oh poor Lola...glad that sleeping on the bed can heal all! Love the picture she looks so sad.

I sure hope you didn't buy them all. How will I find enough to send to all my friends and loved ones.
