This spider has made a web either between the house or the tulip tree and this hanging basket for the whole month of August and a couple days into Sept.

Every night for a few weeks when I went outside to let the pugs out he/she was there. Sometimes with a full web, sometimes I get to watch the making of the web. It's quite remarkable. video

Rugs and vaccums

Since we have new floors, we also had to get new rugs.

For the entry way we went with this.

I got a large utility rug in the dining area because of the pugs. They drip water and etc.

I also got all new vaccums to go with the new carpet and hardwood. I know it's lame but I was excited to get them all. Most exciting is the bissel guy. I can't have any beater bars or anything and I wanted something easy to work with. I use it every other day to pick up hair and etc.

For the carpet I bought this bad boy. I love it too!

For any stains I bought this little guy.

Tough cookie

Brutus is one tough cookie. I came home last week on Tues and saw him scratching his ear. I went to clean it and....his ear was infected (gross pus and very red skin). From looking at his poor ear you'd think he would be effected. He didn't miss a beat. All smiles and eager for treats and to go on his walk.

This isn't the first time he's had some type of problem and acted as if nothing was wrong. He's had other ear infections and allergy issues but never pus like this one.

Good news is that one week out his ears look great. He actually responded to the meds immediately.
