I don't quite know how to explain this except to say...well she is the Dork Dog.

Any geek who owns cats probably also owns a laser pen. There's nothing quite so amusing as kitty aerobatics when they see that bright red bug dashing across the floor. It triggers the predator instinct I think. So, naturally, I own two cats ergo I also own a laser pen. I found it today, for the first time since I moved here, when I cleaned and organized my tool box this morning. I pulled it out and shined it on the floor. Sammy ignores it. Frankie, on the other hand, goes WILD! She'll do back flips off the wall trying to reach the shiny bug just out of reach.

What I was *NOT* prepared for today was Dottie who began to flop and chase then swat and race across the apartment chasing the bright red bug! It was a sight to behold, this gangly, intent blonde dog smacking the carpet with her pancake paws. For giggles I shined the 'bug' on her blankie and watched her take a spectacular leap across the living room floor. She landed with a huge belly flop on her dog bed. I nearly broke a rib I was laughing so hard.

In fear that it might just be a quirk, or that the cold meds had me hallucinating, I did it again while Dr S was here. He witnessed the same thing and laughed nearly as hard as I did. Tonight, I had her running into the kitchen and back chasing the bright red bug. A few times she and Frankie collided while both were chasing the bright red bug.

This could get dangerous. I'd better keep my bare toes out of the way!

I finally found a water proof 'coat' for the dork dog. I needed something warm that was water repellent for our walks, especially since soon I'm going to lose the ability to just let her out back during rainy nights.

I found this on eBay for $10.00. It arrived last night.

Dottie isn't so sure she likes it. Last night she kept waddling as if she were trying to walk out from underneath it. It took her a long time to attempt to squat and pee but finally she seemed to realize the coat wasn't going anywhere and it didn't hinder her from doing what she needed to do.

I think she looks cute. She thinks I'm due some revenge. :)
