Two Dog Night

We’re keeping an eye on Russell’s pooch Betty while Russell does some work on his new building and business. It’s interesting having two dogs in the house after a few years as a one-canine concern. Betty has a sweet disposition but is a bundle of energy compared to Kasey, who’s quite content to snooze the day away. But the dogs get along, and so do we. In fact, it seems like having dogs of different ages is a positive, and they kind of complement each other.

Now, I just need to get my tennis ball tossing arm back into shape.

Mascara Mutt

Russell’s in town for Christmas. He’s brought along his dog Betty, who has three essential traits: (1) an irresistible impulse to pester Kasey until Kasey bares her teeth and growls; (2) a permanently quizzical expression; and (3) facial markings that look like someone going for a cosmetology degree has encircled her eyes with mascara.

Given the facial markings, “Betty” is a pretty apt name. Give her a beehive, pedal-pushers, and some gum to snap, and she’d fit right into the off-Broadway cast of Grease.

Betty In The House

Russell’s here for a visit, and he’s brought his dog Betty.  She’s a pretty and smart beagle mix who’s about 6 months old, and she’s got a lot of energy.

It’s interesting to observe the interaction of Betty and Kasey.  Betty wants to romp, and Kasey wants to sleep, but they share one great interest:  pawing through as much dirt as they can.  It was be a close call whether our backyard bushes survive the furious digging competition.

Betty Lucks Out

Archie Andrews

Archie Andrews

According to this article, Archie Andrews has finally chosen between Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge, and has decided that Veronica will be his wedded wife. I’m not surprised, because Archie has always seemed somewhat stupid and shallow. He probably figured that Betty and Veronica look identical except for their hair color, but Veronica has lots of cash and Betty has none. In a way, Archie and Veronica kind of deserve each other: he gets a spoiled woman who can be a real shrew, and she gets a clumsy and dim-witted ginger with a tic-tac-toe game on the side of his head. Betty should consider herself lucky.
