A lick o' the cat...

Some random stuff today...

We have found out what the other half of Frou Frou is!  She is half Yorkshire Terrier and half Chihuahua, making her a "Chorkie".  Turns out that we know the owner of the father, who also has a dog who is Frou Frou's brother from an earlier litter.

Must get some new photos of the little terror...



Today is a big day at work - our secretary has returned after maternity leave.  It is so good to have her back, being not only mega efficient but also great fun.  Not that her replacements were not these things, they were great, but it wasn't the same.



As I have mentioned before, we are having period of belt-tightening at home to get our finances under control once and for all.  Things just went to hell when my daughter was taken ill but we decided that this year we will sort it all out.  And it is really working, we have been able to make some really big dents in things since Christmas (which was also done on a modest budget!).  One thing that I am enjoying is the food - at times like this, Mrs RC really goes to town in the kitchen, producing amazing dinners out of nothing - I wondered last night whether the kebabs were made from the neighbours cats or something!  :-) 

Cat or not, they were delicious...

Never heard of Chorkie. She is such a cute dog. Totally cute.

TechnoBabe - I will be sure to tell her that she is cute!

"Chorkie"? She's definitely not going to be very big then, is she? I like the thought of a little dog like that.

Mrs. RC must be quite talented to come up with dinner creations from nothing. I'm sure she wouldn't feed you the neighbor's car, but then again, if we can eat hot dogs, why not cat kebabs?

Terri - Hotdogs - Coolcats?

Hey, I have a receipe for cat-kabobs.

Chorkie? We didn't have no fancy names for our mixed breed dogs. Just used to call them mutts down here.

agg79 - I know - in the old days they were mutts, or maybe a "Collie-cross". Now it is trendy to mix breeds and give the mix a fancy name. Not that I really have anything against it - mixing the genes will make for tougher animals!
