Always ethereal, always eclectic, I write as the mood strikes, when there intrigue reveals itself. Usually that means something controversial or adventure of some sort.

I've tried really hard to be unprovocative, but have as yet been unsuccessful.

My sister-in-law just had puppies!

I was sorry to have missed the event, as I was staying with my brother the very next evening, and was really looking forward to watching the puppies come out- I've never had that opportunity before. But my sister-in-law Trina stayed up all night with Daisy after the first yelps were heard. I'm told as the first one came out Daisy had a rather surprised look on her face, wondering what in the world was happening to her. (She's artificially inseminated, so didn't have the traditional biological cues for this to be happening. This may also help explain why she wants to wander off and have fun at times rather than taking care of her babies. That and she's a teenage mother.) My brother Kent got her the traditional birthing present that every mother needs.

There's six of them, and they're all golden doodles- half golden retriever, half miniature apricot poodle. They are planning on keeping one and selling two, so if you know anyone who wants to buy a dog for $1000-$1600...

Daisy is happily suckling a number of them, as they squirm and squeal their way through her paws. Kent suggested the one male be christened with the Hispanic name "Jesus", as Daisy was implanted, and therefore remains a virgin.

I think they should just name the boy Son of a Bitch.

Well, you already stole the comment I wanted to make...

So explain the high pricetag for these mutts.

Golden doodles are in very high demand. There a mix of two pure-breads, so that's the going rate. Kent & Trina are giving one to the breeder and two to the woman who gave them Daisy- the breeder's already sold her puppy ahead of time.

So, what color are a golden doodle's doodles?

Although they are incredibly adorable, I don't think I could handle the price tag. The other two have exhausted my "pet" budget...for now...
