Better than Elvis!

The other day Dad was looking around Mom's office at all the wire fox terrier things she has collected, and he said, "You know, you don't have one picture of the kids here." Uh oh, busted. Mom didn't even realize how much her collection had taken over the work place, but there it was for all to see.

Nary a picture of the kids in sight, but fox terriers everywhere -- hanging on the wall, sitting on her 'puter, and dangling from her ears (actually, they are sillouette Airedale earrings but she passes them off as wires, don't let her know I told her secret). Hey, I don't see anything wrong with collecting what you love, and we all know she loves ME best!

So you can imagine Mom's excitement when she was browsing through a gift shop and came across a figurine of two little terriers peeking over a wall. Do these faces look familiar?

She wasn't sure they really were wires until she turned it around. Both dogs had little black saddles on their backs!

So off these little guys went to work so they can welcome customers into the office. I guess you can say Mom is totally hooked on foxy terriers, they're just everywhere you look around the room. Mom says they're better than a velvet Elvis (who she likes, by the way, but not THAT much!).

Hey Tell...Mumsie has pix of us, the dead hermit crabs (well, they were alive in the pix) and the toad that Lacie tried to eat all over her locker at work. kid pix. One day, Big Bruvver came to steal her car keys..she let him in the locker girls were in it at the time...he saw all of the other lockers had kid's pix up. He seemed a bit perturbed; so Mumsie capitulated and put up a picture of the kiddies. Dogs are cuter! These moms are all alike!
