Youngest daughter thought Gryphon needed hair clips!

55206

So did Gryphon! :D:D

55207

After about a half hour later, hubby realized he still had them on his ears and cursed us female folk for making him into a suckie boy! :laughing::laughing:

BTW---a special thanks to Frenchy for the toy in the food bowl ideal! :lightbulb: It has really helped Gryphon's digestion. He's not inhaling his food anymore! :D

Yep, I do the kong in the bowl thing too for our goofy lab hoover. What amazes me is why these dogs don't just take the kong out of the bowl first and then inhale it. :rolleyes:

Gryph looks quite oblivious to the fact that he's wearing hair clips and the colour does suit him very well. :D

Anti-Jinx routine: :fingerscr, avoid cracks, knock on wood, throw salt over your left shoulder, kiss a toad (in winter, we substitute margarine under madame hazel's left b...um...well, you get the drift :p...for the toad kissing, cuz toads are so hard to come by when there's snow on the ground. :D)
