TMT #12: Lottery!

It's TMT day again, friends, and thanks to Laura over at Crooks and Crazies for another week of thought-provoking prompts.

1. If you won the lottery (a big one... I'm talking stupid muchos cash) what would you do with the money?

I would buy another house--we could call it a dog house--that had many rooms to house lots of people.  I would go visit them every day and give them food and kisses--even if they didn't want the kisses, I would give kisses to them because they would be my people who I bought to give kisses to.  I would also buy 107 dog beds with lots of cushiness and thick bolsters--nicer even than the ones the scribes look at on the computer window. I would buy Rafe, Hamish, Kyzer and Lad some more pasture land so they could have some more sheep, and I would buy Tansy 13 soft toys that would be in a special room in the dog house that only she could go in so that only she could play with them and they wouldn't get destuffed by some other dog (Rafe, we aren't looking at you. Nope).  I would buy Renzo some videos so he could have lots of video nights with our scribes. 

I would donate the rest to the place we got Tansy, cause they could sure use it.  And some to RDM at That'll Do Border Collie Rescue, too, because she helps other dogs like us.

2. After winning the lottery would you work a day job? If so, what would you do?

Definitely not.  I don't work a day job now.

3. Do you have any auxiliary dogs? Auxiliary dogs are dogs that are not essential to your main purpose (usually tiny, but not always). If you don't have an auxiliary dog what might you choose?

We have Renzo.  He's not tiny, but he has got some terrier in him and those are often auxiliary dogs.  He is first dog, so really, we Border Collies are kind of his auxiliaries.  

4. Do you have a favorite crock pot recipe (or other recipe) you can share?

We don't make this in a crockpot, but it's pretty good:

Quick Canine Hash
1 cup millet (or you can use bulghur or couscous if your scribes can safely handle wheat products.  One of our scribes has celiac disease, so we don't have wheat at our house)
1 cup ground meat (any meat will do; we like hamburger)
1 1/2 tsp bonemeal
1 tblsp nutritional yeast

Cook the grain, add the meat to the hot grain, stir in the other stuff.  You can add some cooked vegetables and fruit, esp. melon or banana.   Kyzer would like to mention that he's not really a fan of banana.

Serve with a nice Pinot Grigio (for scribes only)
