5 Little Words #2

Well, It's time to get back to those 5 little words given to me by rxbambi (started, of course, by Little Ms Blogger).  I've been really super busy lately with kids and dogs and laundry and such.  Speaking of dogs, one of the words I'm supposed to post on is Chocolate.  Chocolate and dogs?  Don't get the connection?  Well, read on.

Chocolate
Today I'll let you know a few thoughts I have about chocolate.  But first, it's time to say goodbye to Snickers.  She obviously fits in this word category because of her name.  And because she's as sweet as candy. (ooh, isn't that sticky sweet!).  Today I'll be taking Snickers to her new family.  They seem to be a very nice young couple with another dog that looks like a large version of Snickers herself.  I understand they will be changing her name to Daisy.  That's a sweet name too.  This couple met Snickers last week at PetCo and walked her around the store with their dog Gracie.  They loved her, so they filled out the application, got a great recommendation from their vet, and were approved.  I met them yesterday at a local dog park and the dogs played together well.  Today we'll be meeting at another park where Hope Rescues has an adoption event going on. (That way I don't have to deal with the money; they can pay Hope directly!)  Then I'll watch Snickers go off into the sunset.  Ok, not sunset, but off to be with her new family.  
We'll be getting a new foster dog sometime soon.  But first we'll take a little break and work on Ginger's issues (barking and fear-biting).



So,  chocolate.  I do love chocolate.  You know that stereotypical chocoholic woman?  The one for whom you'd buy a tea towel with some sort of "chocolate is better than sex" saying on it.  Well, that's me.  Minus the tea towel, as no one has ever given me one.  I have gotten cards about chocolate.  And I've gotten chocolate as gifts.  The thing that sucks is that I'm a diabetic.  And, as you learned from my previous post, I have issues with food.  So if someone gives me a lot of chocolate, I usually eat it all.  And if it happens to be sugar-free, I'll eat it then be in horrible pain, with horrible gas and have horrible, well, let's not go there.

What more can I say?  I could go into the history of chocolate, or the manufacturing of chocolates.  There's lots of info on the internet.  But that would get long and I do hate long posts.  So I'll be back with my next word.

Isn't a little gas worth a piece of chocolate? I think so! It is only a fart if someone else hears it! LOL

I think the work you do with dogs is awesome!

LMAO at Otin. He's such a freak. I love chocolate truffles. Usually I can give or take chocolate but there's something about truffles that I can't say "no" to.
I'm happy for Snickers. Ashley is mad that Molly got adopted. I think Bob is relieved...
Love ya!

You must like e-lax - chocolate flavored and gets you out of pain fast :-).

I have to admit, chocolate is not my thing. I actually get headaches, but know so many people who LOVE it (hubby one of them & it explains why we had cupcakes instead of a cake at our wedding)..where was I going with this...oh yeah, I don't crave chocolate, but do crave brussel sprouts the same as my friends who crave chocolate.

Yeah, I'm a freak, but okay with that....

LMB, have you ever had grilled brussel sprouts? It's my favorite way to fix them. I put them in foil with some butter and a little salt, hand them to hubby to heats them on the grill. They're really good.
