The Challenge

I’m trying to fatten up Buddy (the one in the back) at the same time that I need to trim down Finney (the one hovering in the foreground with his belly resting on the floor).

Finney always finishes first, of course, and the challenge becomes keeping an eye on Finney to make sure he doesn’t take Buddy’s food.

Speaking of food, there’s a picture of Christmas cookies on the front page of the Times right now. I must have some. But all the good bakeries near me have closed due to the one that Sex and the City made famous. Where am I going to find Christmas cookies (good ones)?? Knowing how to cook would really come in handy right about now.
