unbowed, unbent, unbroken

I well, I dunno, mister carpet man. even though it fits me perfectly under foot and would be a nice addition here to my eating area, twenty five bags of gummy worms is an awful lot for this tiny piece of carpet. even if it is hand knotted and made from wool.  and besides, me and duk duk are saving up for a four hundred and fifty horsepower megacycle with spherical torque suspension, custom integrated anti gravitational hoversonic sidecar, and dual independent remote omnidirectional versa drones equipped with lab created ruby laser tech and armor piercing amberillium grappling hooks. painted in color shift micro metallic swirly brown and yellow, for obvious reasons of course.  so I am afraid I am going to have to say nopies and just get on my way because duk duk has been waiting for me forever down by the creek now and he would never forgive me if I spent any of our hard earned...wait, what??


it's a FLYING carpet?? 


mister, i will give u thirty bags of gummy worms. :) :)

dunt dunt. dunt dunt dunt dunt.

A sleepy little wolf can hardly be bothered when I am calling him and he is roasting like a little pig in the late afternoon sun.  But bring out the first ear of his summer corn, and suddenly, I swim in shark infested waters. :)

a tiny auction for lily belle :)

Ladeeez and gentlewolves! Step right up and do not be shy, today u r invited to a most spectacular 3-items-in-1-lot auction being held to benefit our faithful friend who does not mind standing over there but keeps following and commenting on our blog anyway, the lovely black and tan Lily Belle from http://lovablelily.blogspot.com/!

Me and duk duk of course do not know all the details because it requires a lot of reading,  but suffice it to say our dad helps keep us up to speed and we know that Lily Belle and her family have gone thru a lot in recent years, like losing her grandypops, her dad having very serious health problems, and the most recent thing being Lily Belle's bout with cancer, which yay she beat! But which u and me both know means there are lots of bills 2 pay.  Lots of bills 2 pay.  

So miss Agnes, another longtime blogfriend from http://dachsieswithmoxie.blogspot.com/ decided to help by setting up a fundraising auction on facebook with items donated by friends.  But with me being in jail,  me and duk duk could not do anything til now.  And since we are late, we thought we would post our own tiny auction here in our blog world, where it all started, before all the newfangled facebooky and instygram and twitter and all that sort of stuff.   And where u can bid without having a required ID of any sort, so long as u identify yourself in your anonymous post so we can name a winner and contact u via email at the close of the auction, and u have a PayPal,  so u can pay and we can print the shipping label and make sure the funds to to her family. Okay, so where was I?  Okay..

Ladeez and gentlewolves! Up for your consideration and to benefit the lovely Lily Belle, this spectacular lot of three highly desirable weenie wolf themed items is yours if you are the highest bidder in the comments section of this blog post at end of day 5.30.2016! The winner of this lot will receive...


..this amazing and rare wolf plushie originally handed out at some convention that my neighbor went to but name of which escapes me because i was too busy barking at him to hear what he was saying...



...these super cute and lovely weenie bunny themed 100% cotton dish towels by cynthia rowley,  which I can personally attest to being super absorbent because our own set has cleaned up many a spill that me and duk duk would prefer mom not know about...


...and these awesome and incredibly cool boxed set of weenie wolf sticky notes, enough for 600 ideas, messages, place holders, and or general sticky note fun! (just do not expect to click a button 2 share what u write on them to something like facebook or instygram unless u take a photo of it first, bc these are pretty old school.  like, u literally just stick them on something. like maybe your jail wall or to keep your place in a paper book, or on a bag of gummy worms u do not want your best friend 2 eat because they are yours and not his and he won them fair and square, which now makes me glad mom gave us our very own set too come to think of it)...


Anyhoo, the simple terms...

1) Bidder must have a valid Paypal account to facilitate payment and shipping.

2) Your bid will cover these three items offered all together as a single lot.  The opening bid starts at $8.00

3) Please make your bid via comments made to this blog post on kalyxcornucopia.blogspot.com (ie, not facebook or twitter or IG). 

4) To keep anonymous comment bids distinct, be sure to leave a unique way to identify yourself  (for instance, we have like, a lot of friends named sarah so u could be Sarah I like Poopies, or Sarah D Poopies, or  Sarah & whatever your wolves' names are)

5) Me and duk duk will cover shipping for US destinations.  International shipping will be charged at actual shipping cost which I can figure out beforehand if anyone would like to know for their country.
 
6) This auction runs from now to the end of day 5/30/2016, with highest bid winner identified by comment time stamp. Me and duk duk will name the winner, and unless we already know your contact info because say u ordered something from our etsy shop, the winner should please email us at dukdukdoxie at gmail dot com so we can exchange details and such :)

Happy bidding my friends!:) :)

UPDATE 5/17/2016: thank u so much for bidding and if u would alternative like to donate funds directly please email me at dukdukdoxie at gmail dot com and k can send you the direct donation info once I have it :)

etsy fresh: Flower Power Happy Hound Doxie Birthday Hats are back!!

Woohoo! This year's girly floral batch of happy hound doxie birthday hats are finally in the Etsy shop, with more wolfy boy and tomboy ones to follow hopefully in a few weeks. The format for the listings are slightly different this year.  There are three different U Pick listings - 12 floral hats in total (flowerbatch 1, flowerbatch 2, and flowerbatch 3) which seem only fitting since they are flower hats and flowers of course were meant to be picked! 

As supplies last and time permits, I hope I can update the listings with tiny chumley modeling them, but for the near future at least, the little kielbasa will continue serving in a supervisory role here in makey world, baking in the sun and emitting the fragrance of fresh baked foofies and frito pie.  :)

hee hee, mom, that's right, u just keep making things and i will just fall a..i will just fall...i..will...zzzzzzzzz :)

rampy time

A pair of ramps for the little kielbasa have been the priority in makey world, a project that I hope will ease the stress on a tiny ferocious little wolf's body and expand his world while keeping us safe from trips over the gates we would otherwise use to restrict encounters with steps and stairs. The rundown on the pair of ramps goes something like this - 
2 - 3 ft-ish x 11" wood boards from Habitat Restore ($1.50)
3 - 2x2 carpet squares from Ollies ($6.00)
Double sided carpet tape from Lowes ($6.00)

Stuff I already had on hand (misc wood for rails and support joists, primer paint, sanding stuff, random screws)

Stuff I thought I had on hand but had to buy (wood putty $3, finish coat paint which was sadly $17 bc I couldn't find white high gloss at the Restore and store samples are only offered it seems in satin finish)

Cutting and building Labor from tiny chumley's Unkie D who happens to be visiting us (priceless)

With any luck, these ramps will be of good use for many years to come, once tiny chumley is completely healed from his most recent bout with pain and other things that keep a wolf from feeling completely like himself. :) 


ooo mom, I know I am still healing but maybe this weekend me and duk duk can still use my new ramps and we can play poopsie daisy on them? :) :)

pee-on-mees

Here's a peek today at a special little project tiny chumley helped me with, some time before he was sentenced to county jail and subsequently sprung free on Friday.  They're peonies for a friend, made from coffee filters, and a generous helping of makey luck.

wait, mom, r u sure they are pee-O-knees? because, well, maybe miss marene better not smell the one we sent her, if u know what i mean :)

laser light saber therapy: return of the stink eye

dear diary, 
my laser light saber training has gone very well and quite frankly i am not certain why it took luke skywalker like forever plus the loss of his hand before he became a Jedi. I just finished my third laser treatment this past Sunday and already I feel the force coursing through my body in such an abundance that I can hardly contain myself. which maybe explains why mom opened the window, come to think of it. and why it is still open. becaus, well sometimes when u r supercharged with the force, the force just squeaks out of u even when u r sleeping, if u know what I mean.  

anyhoo, after my Jedi session, it was time to go back to jail and so me and duk duk spent the afternoon playing with graphics on one of the pictures mom took so we could send it to Doctor miss Erin after we finished. today I thought I would show u a progression of the design work we did and if u squint at the tiny pictures u can see how we added and tweaked certain very simple elements to create an asymmetric image that still feels very balanced, fresh, and appropriate for the subject matter at hand. u know, in a red lines are lasers kapow pow ping ping pew pew sort of way. well within reason bc when we added even more lines it just started 2 look like string art so we scaled it back a little. . 

okay so right now my tummy says I have to work on my mind manipulation skills so for now I bid u a fond..

toodleydoo!
b :)


ps - in case u did not know what I mean, laser therapy does not give u gas. but the incredibly tiny and delicious salmon flavored snackie bits your mom gives u to stay still while u r getting Jedi laser light saber therapy in your yellow duckie bun crate bed just might :)

light saber therapy




dear diary,
even though things have been pretty boring in jail, things sometimes can get interesting.  like when I heard mom and dad signed me up for laser therapy.  at first i thought it would be all light sabers and jedi fighting, but nopies.  and then i thought it would be like, all laser guns and han solo running and stuff, but nopies.  mostly, i just have to sit still while doctor miss Erin waves her magic red eyeball wand all over my spine.  well, i think it is red but i cannot tell u for sure since i am not supposed to really look at it which is why i am wearing doggles.  all in all, it is not nearly as scary as i thought it would be, which is why me and duk duk decided to add our own super cool sound effects to the video we made of me getting my second treatment.    i hope u like it.

toodleydoo!

post twits :)

wow, duk duk, u r right. this is really archaic. they call these post its but u cannot even link these to an alarmed calendar event much less set a hyperlink to your Instagram or Twitter feed. 

 
it's like, yeah they are post-its, but post it where? post it on your blog? nopies. post it on your Pinterest? nopies. post it to your etsy shop? nopies. post it on your linked in? nopies.

I guess once u r done say like writing a reminder or drawing an awesome poopie snake, then u can post them on your wall but not even like, your Facebook wall. so like, u literally just post them to your wall. literally. with no likes or anything later.  it's crazy, right?

yeppies, duk duk, I think u r right. it is a sacrifice we will have to make. let me ask her...



mom, a) thank u very much for these lovely post its u found at homegoods, b) we are sorry we used your credit card without asking and c) well, for as long as I am in jail, if me and duk duk promise never to do it again and promise to stay off amazon and stop setting up Amazon Subscribe and Save orders for gummy worms and possibly other items u may or may not have realized we have already set to convenient auto delivery every two weeks, well, if we promise all that, do u think we maybe might can have my iPad mini back? :)
