A Public Service Announcement from the Pink Lemon

Attention everyone! Do you have an adolescent canine living under your roof? (These are referred to as puppies in some circles.) They are cute right? With the waggy tails, and smiling faces, and the tongues that hang out sideways sometimes, and the ears that get turned wrong side out. They are a very cute addition to our families. They are also useful in keeping the cat well dampened (whatever happens, you DON'T want your cat to dry out) and amusing small boys. Despite all of the cuteness, and the helpful cat washing, and other things they bring to our homes (often quite literally), they are a threat to a popular family activity often partaken when the weather precludes any outside activities - that is, the puzzle. I give you Exhibit A: the 998 piece hot air balloon puzzle. (The second missing piece is in the green, yellow, and black balloon on the left.) I knew there was at least one missing piece when I pulled the pulpy cardboard out of Finn's mouth, but it had already lost all resemblance to a puzzle piece at that point. The second missing piece was a bonus and really quite unexpected. And just in case you think this is a one time thing:
I give you Exhibit B: the 999 piece seaside village puzzle. The exact time and method of the disappearance of this piece is unknown. We called in a CSI team, but they got distracted and started working on the puzzle instead of looking for the missing piece.

Let this be a warning to you all: Puppies and Puzzles just don't mix!

Puppies and puzzles aren't the only things that don't go together. Cats and puzzles are anathama to each other too. In fact cats have a way of messing up just about everything. Mine have already messed up my typing tonight, a large box of cat food, and, Mouse, my baby, is sitting on my shoulder with her needles, (also known as claws) sunk into the skin for support. Fun, gosh the fun just never ends does it!!!! Ann in Dallas

Well at least they seem to be solid colored pieces so you might be able to make some substitute pieces to throw in there. You just need some cardboard, preferably white, and markers.

The kids might get a kick out of making the new pieces. :)

Do you live anywhere around the upper midwest? If you do, it is quite certain that my Uncle Al has taken the last piece of both puzzles. He will turn up at some point and make a big show out of "finishing" the puzzle. His saving grace is that he makes cooks well.

er, excuse the typo. He cooks well. He does not to my knowledge make cooks.
