Forget Me Not

Sometimes Facebook pulls up a memory that I forgot all about and I am pleasantly surprised  with the find.

Sometimes they are funny, not in a funny ‘ ha, ha ‘ sort of way but in a ‘ those little facts you hear about memories that sound sketchy really aren’t so far fetched. I mean I don’t have a real sense of humor but apparently my brain does because my memory played a trick on me.

Here is the memory in question:

When I think back on bringing Hamish home when he was just over 10 weeks old, I remember my cats were really good with him. That he hung around them all of the time and that at night they insisted he  stay close to them ( that was something they learned to do from my older dogs who had since passed on and had raised them ).

Apparently I have been looking back and not seeing the bumps in the road that they hit- like this one:

My cat peed on Hamish’s bed. Hamish buried my cat’s food bowl in the backyard. And the battle rages on…

From the way that reads, there was an on going power struggle and for some reason I forgot all about it. I didn’t run interference from the looks of it. You’re not supposed to dabble to much when you move new animal into the home, but some of this stuff looked funny and I still forgot about it.

I wonder why?

My Sweet Scurvy Sea Dog

I found a Halloween costume for Hamish Macbeth!

I was leaning towards dressing him up as a Mermaid or a Bumble Bee because I  like the colors. But as I scrolled around one just jumped out at me- this year Hamish Macbeth is going to be a pirate just like Jack Sparrow.

After all it’s fact. Hamish is just as cute and twice as sassy as Jack, so it’s a perfect choice.

In case you’re curious It was easy to get Hamish into the costume ( except for the hat, which I will have to work on because he hates them and as you can see I sort of tied it on his head for the picture )  I’ll take better pictures around Halloween of him all snazzy looking and you’ll see how cute that hat really is.

It didn’t even take me five minutes to get him into it- he’s used to wearing a harness that he only wears for walks, so he’s used to having something wrap around his middle and I was able to fit it over him with no problem. He’s also used to getting his nails trimmed so it was easy to guide his paws through the little pant legs . His back legs and tail aren’t covered and the costume doesn’t even fit down that far on his back.

As an FYI Hamish is a solid 80 pounds and he has the traditional stocky English Lab build so he fit into the large with no problem. He was also able to run around and jump up and down off the furniture with ease  so the costume didn’t restrict his movements which is probably why he wasn’t in a hurry to get out of it- unlike his butterfly wings which he sort of hated with a passion and the minute I turned my back he was rubbing against the wall trying to get it off.

The store on Amazon that sells this and other super cute costumes is called NACOCO and  the link for this costume is HERE

I hope you enjoyed seeing Hamish’s dress rehearsal and  we can’t wait for  you to see how he looks on Halloween!
