Breakfast of Champions

Never in a million years would I have thought that I could fall for a rat.

I have.

Meet Charlie.  Rat extraordinaire, Lover of Fruit Loops.

Hair of the Dog

He wears it well. 


Copy Cat

She watches my yoga sessions.

It’s All About Comfort

Because the blue velvet couch isn’t comfortable enough.

At least I know who has been crushing my couch pillows.

Turtle Dog

She wouldn’t move after I put on her turtle costume.


I will not buy my dogs any more costumes.  They do not like them.  At all.

Sorry, Ellie.

No more.  I promise.

Spoon Me!

Ellie and Cora love one another.  They are both about the same size. Not much bigger than my suede slipper.   These series of pictures were taken within five minutes.IMG 1478

It seems Cora was having difficulty finding just the right spot to spoon with Ellie.

She tossed and turned.IMG 1480

It looked like she had finally found a good spot.

Until it wasn’t.   She slipped out of sight without a sound.

Ellie stretched out and stayed this way for over an hour.

And Cora was not happy about it.

Walks With Cora

This is how it is every morning.  I take my dogs out for a walk.  The cat decides she’s going to follow us.  No matter where we go.  And then she goes into stealth mode.  We pretend we do not see her.

She’s so stealthy.
