I Pooped on Lexington Ave

Birthday Update: I took a poop on Lexington Ave after lunch at Chorizo. The People were absolutely horrified since they had no doggie poop bags! LOL!

Happy Birthday to Me!

I'm up bright and early to wish me a happy birthday! I'm 9 today! Woman says I am old enough to mow the lawn now. I'm not a goat, so I don't know how she thinks I'm going to mow anything!

I will post my birthday photo in front of my birthday forsythia bush a little later. It's still trying to get its bloom on.

Did You Know ...

Back when Woman used to be a kid (Crazy, I know. I'm glad she outgrew that phase before meeting me), her mom would make pickled eggs every summer. She would put eggs, a can of beets with the beet juice and some vinegar in a "sun tea" jar and let it brew in the fridge for a couple days. The eggs would turn purple through to the yoke from the beet juice. Anyone else make pickled eggs like that?

Woman didn't care much for these eggs and liked the canned beets even less. She hadn't eaten a beet since then until one day on a crazy whim she had some fresh beets at Bouchon, a local French restaurant, and loved them. Last night the People tried to replicate the recipe and were pleased with the outcome. No, I didn't get any beets, but I hear they were tasty.

So, now onto the "did you know" part of the story. Did you know that if you pig out on beets and don't offer any to your faithful Pug, your pee and poop will be red the next morning? Woman didn't know either. But now she does. Be warned people.

Woman bought some beet seeds for the garden and is excited to grow her own. I'm excited too, because I do get veg from the garden. I will have me some beets! Not "beatens" though - those are totally different.

I've Got a Birthday Coming!

I haven't blogged in a while, and that's all Woman's fault, but more importantly, my birthday is this coming Saturday! Can you believe it?? I get a Saturday birthday! I'm so excited. Woman is going to take me to lunch, and then to the doggie bakery and then on a hike! It better not rain!
