Wednesdays with Winston

Found the coolest thing at the pet store the other day.

You take your old mismatched socks, sweaters, blankets, towels and put them in this nice washable mesh bag.

Then take this lovely Molly Mutt Duvet Cover....

and insert mesh bag and zipper up. Then you have this lovely "green" doggy bed.

Here's a blur of Winston discovering his doggy duvet/bed.

And finally here's a picture of the dashing Sir Winston Humvee the First proudly sitting on his throne. Okay, it's a dog bed, but humor me.

He is a crazy, militant, naughty, wild puppy who loves to try and chew his mummy's knitting, but how could you not love that face.

Must share a funny Ethan story though: Today at dinner Ethan was begging for soda. We rarely let the kids drink soda (dad is a dentist and mum is a soda addict) so I told him No, he could have milk or water. He said "Well, I WANT a Sprite", which Caleb immediately followed with "Well, I want a million dollars". I said "Me, too.". Ethan said "I want a million dollars too, so that I could have my very own puppy to taunt!!!!" Followed by a wink in my direction.

Should I be scared or impressed that my four year old knows the word taunt and has such a dry sense of humor?

I'd think you should be proud that you're raising the 4 year old 'right'!
What an excellent idea for a doggie bed!

omgosh, Winston is SO cute, what type of dog is he? We have a Shih Tzu named Boo as you may know from my site and he's a cutie.
That's a pretty impressive sentence for a 4 yr old ;)
Funny thing about soda, my dd Kristen (who is 9 now) won't drink it because she doesn't like the fizzy! I keep telling her one of these days she'll realize what she's missing, but it's probably a good thing she doesn't like it cos I hardly ever buy it, and on the rare occastion I do, it's diet stuff which I wouldn't let her drink anyway!

what a great idea!! we don't have pets, so the pet store wouldn't be somewhere I'd frequent. I would have missed out...thanks for sharing!!
