As always, thank you for reading.  I look forward to seeing you at the shiny new home of Diet, Dessert and Dogs!

Mum, we are coming with you, aren’t we?  Because (and sorry to have to tell you this), we actually have more fans on this blog than you do.”


Elsie and Chaser, my fur babies and the loves of my life (after my HH, of course–or maybe on par with him).

They are often my inspiration, almost always my companions (and especially when I eat), and will frequently comment about what I write here. (“But you actually appreciate our input, don’t you, Mum?“)  And of course, I do appreciate their input.


(That’s Chaser on the left, Elsie on the right).



[Chaser’s not really drunk; she just looks that way all the time.]

    This is hilarious Ric! It really perked me up after our depressing conversation…

    I didn’t remember to tell you but, tres apropos, I rejoined WW on Thursday night at Mark’s (quite strong) encouragement. Unfortunately, he is unsure if he can be available to be home every Thursday night so that I can go!!!! Great support. Anyway, tonight is his office Xmas dinner at Terra so going to be a toughie.
    Better than NOT joining I think.

    Hi Rob,

    Congrats on re-joining! Whatever works, is what I say. Sorry you found the conversation depressing, though. . . just remember to try not. to. be. so. angry.

    Beautiful girls, Ricki! I love that Chaser has one beige leg. ^_^

  4. Ricki Says:

    Thanks! We love them :). Chaser’s coloring is really strange, actually–under the black, she has a layer of beige all over! I’ll try to take a photo one day to show everyone.

    What can be better than food and dogs?

  6. I loved the cute pics of the girls especially the one where Elsie & Chaser are sitting by the front door!!!
