The boys will sleep well tonight

This afternoon, my friend Bonnie and I took the boys out for a long walk out along the causeway that goes out to the beach, approximately a 3.5 to 4 mile venture start to finish. Well, there’s this draw bridge along the way …….. Nemo did not want any part of the vibrating, rattling, buzzing and shaking ground under his poor little feet! Rico wasn’t thrilled with it either, but his solution was to drag me across it as fast as he could.

Phoofie turns eight years old

Phoofie from our studio’s legal department turns eight years old today. Born in Vermont and adopted by us from the local humane society, he is 75% Maine Coon Cat and 25% Other, and since he reminds us that EEOC prohibits us from asking him what the “other” is, neither has he volunteered. Cats prefer maintaining an air of mystery.

Phoofie birthday

Turkey on the window

Updated my neighbor’s storefront window by changing out the hobgoblin in the far corner to a turkey:

Being a country girl, yes, I do know what a real wild turkey looks like! But for a storefront window, greyish-black is really kind of boring 😀

The boys are at it again

Bed wrestling …. one of their favourite past times. Totally leaving the bed covers in a mess, but having a grand time and being so incredibly cute I can’t ever get mad. I just re-make the bed when they’re done. Sigh. I love my boys. #LuvMyDog #LuvMyOtherDog

Pucker up!

Yesterday, Nemo and I went to Dogtoberfest here in town. Mr. Sociable was busy greeting all the people who came up to him as well as a whole lot of other dogs with mutual sniffing ensuing. Shot this cute photo of him at the tent of Pawlicious Poochie Pet Rescue. My dog is such a hunk, isn’t he? He could have made lots of money, but alas, we had other booths to grace.

Btw, this is Nemo’s new FB photo (hee hee heeee)!!

Rico gets very emotional

I don’t know how I missed posting up this one from the other day ……. it’s so adorable! Heavy sighing, looking down the street, completely convinced his human is never coming home again. #LuvMyOtherDog

11-07-13 Rico believes Greg is never coming home

Dances with Dogs

So, I just wanted to get a shot of my “tank top of the day” to share on our studio’s Facebook page and, of course, the boys were right there with me. My little bud Rico is jealous of Nemo, so whenever Nemo comes over and leans on me, Rico has to one-up him and take the high road to get to me! LOL

So I let the camera click away and herewith present to you ……. Dances with Dogs!

(I know I am a dog dork and my biggest fans are furry!!!)

#LuvMyOtherDog

Seriously, how could I not??? Rico is so precious ….. and needy. At night when we go to bed, Rico has to get up on his pillow with his snout right next to my face, at least one paw stretched out touching me and will keep smacking me until I lay my hand over him. Once we get past this bedtime ritual, he will shuffle around until he gets comfortable, but this routine goes on every night he sleeps here.

In my studio space (read: garage), it’s much the same with his being able to reach me from the comfort and convenience of his dog chair. So what was I thinking when I shifted my laptop setup over one desk space the other day because now he can’t reach me from his chair. He has to touch or at least be able to touch at all times, so this change in decor has upset him a bit. All day yesterday, the little guy (okay, he’s 85lbs which isn’t that little, but he’s smaller than 130lb Nemo) kept pushing his nose up between the two chairs at me or climbing across the empty one from his dog chair. Gotta #LuvMyOtherDog !!!
