Waiting for Mom to arrive

Shog's sent me some interesting links this morning, which I thought I'd share:

A cool magical table.

The product of the union between a bear and a brave dog.

Steampunk Lego Dino!

Something Lego-related that Shog wants me to check out.

One bad and one good thing that happened today:

Poor Albus was attacked by three of our neighbors' dogs while walking with Shog this morning. One of the dogs landed a bite on Albus' back but didn't break the skin, and Shog was able to fend them off with a stick and his foot. He brought Albus home and then went back to the house to tell the owner that his dogs were out and belligerent, and it seems as though Albus didn't hurt them, so all's well, but it was an alarming morning for my boys.

While all that was happening, the amazing [info]undula (you may know of her art comm) agreed to take a TIS-related commission from me! *flails* I cannot adequately express how much I love her work, and how happy I am to know I'll soon have more of it! *dances*

She's previously illustrated Girl!Harry, a Snuna scene, and a Draco/Daphne scene for me, and I have portraits of Hermione, Percy, and Sirius by her (but unfortunately no digi images of them to share).

I'm so pleased I could burst right now!

I bet you are all shaken up, and kudos to Shog. I hope Albus is fine - watch out for him being bruised and swollen, even if the skin didn't break

That's a good thing to remember, and I will watch him. He's been really hyper and clingy today; I hope he settles down by tomorrow, poor guy.

Oh, poor Albus! I'm glad he wasn't badly hurt. Stupid person, letting his dogs run free.

He's been a bit hyper and clingy, but he's otherwise all right, thank goodness. In my neighbor's defense, I should say that his dogs slipped out of the yard; he doesn't usually allow them out. Still. *sighs*

How scary for Albus. The owner should keep his dogs locked up if they're attacking a person walking their dog. I'm glad things weren't more serious even though I'm sure both your boys were pretty shook up.

Yeah, Albus still is, a bit, but I think he'll be okay tomorrow. He got Easter meat bites and has found them soothing. ;)

The dogs got out of their yard; the owner doesn't let them run free. I think they might have been extra wound up because of all the activity in the neighborhood today.

It's a relief that the dogs weren't normally allowed to run free though poor Albus suffered from their escape. Still, having his 3 dogs attacking together seems to indicate poorly socialized/trained dogs.

I doubt these dogs have any training. They're yard dogs who never get walked, poor things. It would suck having to stay in one small space all the time. I think they must be quite frustrated.

I do hope that this was a one-time thing, though. I don't want to have to report the dogs.

Poor Albus! There's nothing scarier than running into the middle of something like that. Good thing they were all okay. </p>

That magic table is awesome, btw!

I'm so relieved things ended as well as they did. *pets Albus*

I love that table! It's so cool. *wants*
