They're playing MY song!

It's been awhile since I updated about my baby boy, so I thought I would take some time today to do just that!
  • Rhino weighs 4.6 lbs.
  • He's been neutered.
  • He's climbing on just about everything. In fact, just yesterday, he figured out how to use the blankets on my bed as a climbing rope to get up.
  • He's lost several teeth. We have about 4 or 5 in a little plastic bag, but those are just the ones we know about. (don't ask me why we are saving them)
  • He's doing pretty well with potty training. He's down to about 1 accident a day, and that usually happens when the girls have him.
  • He's learning new tricks! Loo has taught him to sit, lay down, roll over, and circle. He's also learning how to fetch.
And, he still has a fascination for underwear, socks, and well, just about anything you leave lying around or in small bathroom garbage cans that he can get into. So...we've made up a song about him. To Ariel's "Part of That World" from the Little Mermaid

Look at this stuff,
Isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm a boy, a boy who has everything?
Look and behold
Treasures untold
How many wonders can one doggie hold?
Lookin' around here you think,
Sure, he's got everything!

I've got wrappers and Q-tips a plenty
I've got flip flops and sockies galore.
Do you want a thong?
I've got 20!
But who cares,
No big deal,
I want more!

I want to be at the top of the pile!
I wanna dig, wanna dig in laundry
Walkin' around on those
Whadda you call em- oh, clothes.
Walks with the leash,
I don't get too far
The harness itches, itches like crazy.
But tryin' to be good for those... what's that word again... TREAAAAAAAAAATS!

Don't want to beg
But I'm being good
Being so good, just loo-ook at me
I'd like a treat
I'll do a trick
Life is so goooood!

Wow Brandi! Your song writing techniques are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! We also know how you feel! When sophie was a puppy, she did the same thing. I lost a lot of socks then!!!!

What a clever song! And great update on Rhino. He is so cute!

That is gorgeous. What a great re-write of that song. I couldn't help laughing while reading your lyrics and listening to the original tune. Very clever! He is a cute little thing.

I was singing this clever song as I was reading the lyrics.. I love the original, but LOVE your version that much more!!! :) I think you should record it and play it for us here on your blog!

Wow, I just viewed the picture of the girls in your banner. Holy Cow!!! What an incredibly beautiful photo. Who took it?

Chrissie my sweet friend! I took the picture (I think) either that or Jason did, BUT I edited it. I went to and tweaked it. I love that site! I think it's much easier to use than photoshop!
