Construction on the new house is coming along. We’ve got footings and foundation in, and plumbing rough-in was completed on Friday. Had a nice day with my sister’s family today. Not much going on really. Attached to this post, before and after pictures of our recent trip to the dog groomer. Enjoy!
Aw, what a little cutie :)

Love that mop tail.

When posting photos, forcing a large (~3200×2500) photo into a small space is kind of annoying.
Cute little dog.
ETA: I’ve been watching that kitten cam. The five kittens are getting bigger and cuter. They are out of the cage space and free roaming in the big room with things to climb and other toys.

The groomer forgot the tail.
It looks like Tom Tancredo is backing out of his promise to smoke weed if the Colorado Proposition 64 passed.

That’s not a dog is it? It looks more like a dust mop that lost its handle! ;p
What news is this? So what if a conservative makes a promise that they back out of when it comes due, that shit happens on a daily basis in this country so no news there.
I do have to give him points for thinking of the children (as a good excuse to back out of it).

Aiiii, your pictures broke my browser! Can you shrink the file size or put them behind a link cut, Sooner?

@The prophet Nostradumbass: Sooner, you could just screencap the photos at the size you want and use MS Paint to cut it to size. On a Mac use option+shift+4 and select what you want, then save as a png if it saves as a picture (I think newer OS saves as a png by default).
When taking pictures of pets, you’ll get a better shot if you get down on their level.

a near-fatal dose of cute
Sooner, Why did you tie a dust mop to your dog’s tail?
BTW..ABC won the coveted what talk show will John McCain choose this week award.
Thread needs moar puppehs.
@jeffreyw: haha.. The look that puppy gave says it all.
@JPL: She is feeling much better now.
My Sammie is also a little white dust mop, but he always looks mega-cheerful as a big fluffy mess, and rather embarrassed when he comes home all spiffy with a scarf around his neck.
What kind of heating/cooling system are you going with Soonergrunt?
Let me regale you with the wonders of a geothermal system, if it’s not too late (probably is).
@redshirt: It’s not too late, but it’s also a little on the high side. We can afford a 95% gas system though.
Hey, all–honestly, the pictures didn’t look too big on my home computer in Google Chrome. I resized them to 600×400 and the appeared to me to fit well inside the frame on the site.
@Soonergrunt: You should look into it. I think geothermal is more cost effective than you realize, since you get a 30% tax credit with the Feds with any purchase, and it functions incredibly well as a whole house AC system as well as your main heating system. It cools better than it heats.
Throw in a small bank of solar panels and you’ve reduced your energy/electric bills dramatically.
Every new house in the South/Southwest should have a geothermal AC system and solar panels. IMO!
Sooner, how much does that little dog weigh? I’ve got a five-month-old Havanese-poodle cross whom we think will end up around 12 pounds and I’m trying to figure out what that looks like. Thanks!
