Now that I've just gotten done boring you to tears with meta junk, it's time to respond to the will of the people. Pet photos, fresh baked this weekend.
I would put more photos of Jenna the Wonder Terrier up on here if I could just get her to sit still long enough to take some, but this weekend I managed to do that, mainly because she'd just spent hours at the park chasing and wrestling with, I kid you not, a full-grown Great Dane. I'm trying to decide which fictional character is the best metaphor for this, and the one that first sprang to mind was Tommy DeVito from "Goodfellas" -- short, kind of goofy-looking, funny voice, but will not hesitate to beat you into a bloody pulp for so much as telling him to go get his shinebox. Jenna's not quite that psychotic, but she did work herself into enough of a lather battling the Great Dane that she was good and knocked out once we got home:
Even the following morning, she still took a while to completely wake up . . .
. . . but then she was right back at it again with my neighbor Katie's dog.
I have this fear that one day she's going to step to a poorly trained pit bull and do something we both later regret, but until then, enjoy.
