    I had something every night of a ten day vacation, usually a couple beers or couple glasses of wine. I gained a few pounds but my sleep was outstanding, thanks in part to lots of relaxing, sun, physical exercise, no stress, and playing with my kids. All in all, a brilliant vacation. Now it is time to snap back to what I was doing before. I don't get many vacations so I am glad to have succumbed to temptation. I feel that I got all my itches scratched so to speak and can now cut back week days to lose more weight.

    Meh, I think he cares mostly about the hanging out and less about the cocktails...

    Yes, but when I had my dog, the more I drank the more I'd hang out and give scratches.

    So secretly your dog loves the cocktails! Ha!

    Also, when I was 18 living on my own, my lab would get extra treats when I was
    cocktailing, JUST SO SHE'D STOP STARING AT ME to go for a freaking walk!

    I'd walk that dog TEN MILES A DAY, 5 in the morning, five when I got home from
    work, and still it wasn't enough.

    I'd be sitting in my cocktailing chair, spinning the hits on my record player, and there
    she was, staring at me... so I'd give her treats... lots and lots of treats.

    We didn't call her Barrel with a Head for nothing....

    Finally had to knock the treats off, but man, the STARING.

    Silly dogs!

    Has yours ever swiped an ENTIRE large pizza off the counter, drug it across the tile, the carpet and
    over the threshold of the sliding glass door, out into the back yard, up against a fence and ate it while
    you took THREE SECONDS to go to the freaking bathroom?

    Murder came to mind, but the cuteness saved her.

    Ha ha ha. The last time murder crossed my mind was when I caught him with his head in the cat litter box. It's behind a door with a cat flap so normally he can't get in there and he knows he's not even supposed to go in when the door is (rarely) open. I yelled at him and made suffer the guilt face for a few minutes (you know the look), but as you said, cuteness ultimately saved him...

    I'm sure you've seen this, but it's just so classic, that you MUST watch it
    again.

    Freaking hilarious every time.

    That is surely one of the best dog videos of all time, and yes that's the face. But it's so freaking cute that you can't stay mad for more than like a minute.

    More on topic, argh, I had some wine last night, that was left over from the weekend. Back on track today!!!!

    PS It WAS on the patio with said dog...

    Yeah, I'm surprised that the dad could keep from laughing.

    My dog would always just look the other way, most times, to the point
    of her head just snapping off her neck, as to say "what? huh? oh, are you
    talking to me? Nah, didn't think so." Brat.

    You are on restriction for your indiscretion.

    May the fleas of a thousand hyenas infest your eyelashes for the duration of
    the time it took to drink said wine with said dog on said patio.
