Elvis and the Pink Hydrangea

What do you do when you have a pile of leftover pink paint, only one hour to paint because you're suddenly crazy-busy and you know it's only going to get worse because for some unknown reason, in a moment of weakness, you agreed to foster a 6-month old Golden Retriever puppy named Elvis and you know your 10-year-old Golden (a.k.a. "Mr. Grumpy") will stop speaking to you?  Why, there is really only one thing to do: put on your abstract hat, pick up your palette knife, think of those pink hydrangeas you have only been able to admire as you back down the driveway, and put on your painting apron, because things are going to get pink and messy!
