Extreme Chinese Crested Racing he goes...

We've all seen 'extreme car racing or extreme fighting'... but have you ever seen
 'extreme crested racing' ? I have...yesterday,  it was warm & a bit windy here and I had the dogs out back. Joker decided he had energy to burn and took off for about 15 minutes of 'extreme racing' around the yard.  It was as if he was being chased by the Devil himself...maybe he was, but all I saw were leaves occasionally getting kicked up in his wake as he followed a track only he could see around & around the yard. It of course led right through a few of the muddiest part of the yard. Oh well, you can't be a pretty boy show dog every day.

I managed to snap a few action shots of the fun.
A momentary break with Rosie...

After a few laps he stopped to look over his 'track' before taking off again....notice the feet...

What mud?

Fifteen minutes later a happy worn out racer takes a break...

Local 'Loverboy' struck down...

Last night during the wee hours while the rest of the neighbors were snug in their beds ,with visions of sugar plum dancing in their heads, a local Loverboy was attacked and torn apart by two thugs. 

Police apprehended the two not far from the crime scene after following a trail of 'fluff'. 
One of the suspects, a male teen, ( well known to local authorities ) still had fibres from Loverboy on his coat. The other male hung his head in shame and has never before been involved in anything like this say local authorities .
" It was a suprise to me that xxxx was involved in anything like this " said a local man, who also witnessed the crime. " xxxx is usually such a momma's boy and very quiet. It must have been the influence of the younger more unruley teen" said Mr. H Bear who was putting up his Christmas decorations and heard the commotion, but was too late to help.

Authorities now have the two suspects behind bars awaiting a hearing before the local judge, however given that the judge knew Loverboy and was rather fond of the lad, its doubtful the two thugs will be released anytime soon.

^Two suspects in local jail. ^

We will miss you Loverboy.

Testimonials on my soap

I saw SoapWithBalls in a forum post a few weeks ago and was so intrigued with the fabulous shop name and even more intrigued that the avatar for a soap shop was of a young man, I just had to click! After reading the shop announcement written by his mom I really wanted to give this shop it's first sale. My family (my hard working carpenter husband, a sweaty skate boarding teenage son, and a stinky little league catcher) love handmade soap and purchase all of our soap on Etsy. When I saw the manly soap in super large sizes, I thought, this is perfect.

After my purchase, he promptly sent me a thank you convo and shipping information. The communication and customer service I received was wonderful and refreshing. After receiving my Cut Lumber 10oz. bar of soap, I proudly presented it to my dear husband and he immediately took it with him into the shower. I'll tell ya, I've never seen a cleaner man in my life! I wish you the best of luck with your shop, and I will be back when our Cut Lumber starts thinning out :)


Cut Lumber-this is a huge bar of hunky soap perfect for that dirty hunky manly man in your life. This soap is definitely ballsy and not for sissies! No foo foo girly smelling soap here!

Blackstrap Licorice-Licorice was my favorite candy when I was a kid and the smell of this soap makes me want to take a bite out of it! 

Now I'm eyeing that lilac soap, it looks lovely!

-Yummy, yummy, yummy...

His soaps, I mean. He sent me some incredibly luscious soaps and I am SO happy with my purchase! He is the best cabana boy ever- make sure you have all of his products for your own cabana!
