I had to collect a urine sample from my dog and she didn't even notice….

First thing first, right?  I saw somewhere something about making broccoli bites…and OH GOODNESS there are a million different ways to make them, but I used this recipe (click!) and they were easy and wicked good! You can see I had Penny to help…the idea is:  chopped broccoli, shredded carrot, spice, egg and cheese to hold it together, how can you go wrong?

In other news, as you see below, I continue trying out the pots with flowers idea…this squared bowl turned out rather well--the light green and rose colored glaze are a wonderful combo, surprise!

And finally?  I am at the vet the other day with the beagle and the vet wants a urine sample.  I had dutifully trekked with her out into the snow to get the baggie full of poo (and snow) for THAT test, but they really wanted pee.  How in hell do you do that???? She is a very small dog and she squats all the way down to the ground?  And it is 15 degrees and snowy out there!
WELL, they told me go out with her first thing and hold something like an aluminum pie plate under her when she starts to pee….so me, my parka and boots and little dish follow her into the yard just now, and she didn't even notice or care, after I AGONISED over this all night and lost sleep….I mean, I don't want to do it every day, but it was pretty easy….imagine trying to do that with a cat….

Ha ha, I remember getting a urine sample from my dog... When I slipped the pan underneath her she turned to look at me and appeared to be thinking, "What the #$%? are you doing?". But I got the sample!

Those square bowls are looking very spring like. Nice glaze combo.
