Oh. Hello!

I love sitting on my dad's back. In fact, if he let me - I'd stay there for most of the day and stare at myself in the mirror.

Do I look intimidating with my eyes glowing like that?

Trauma. A Timeline...

First. I want to start this overview of my Sunday evening by stating that I know my dad loves me SO much. But, I should also add that he is clumsy, and in my personal opinion; reckless with a nail clipper.

M&D have been jointly cutting my nails since I arrived home well over a year ago. Mom swaddles me in a blanket & holds me like a baby in her arms, and dad takes out my paw and gently cuts my nails. I make some noises... but, I'm a good boy and don't move and let them trim me. Plus, I know I'm going to get showered in treats and praise afterwards. Soooo why not?

But, Sunday. Things went awry. Dad, for some unknown reason decided to use different clippers than he usually does. He cut my nail, and mistakenly cut it a bit too short and it HURT! and I bled!!!!!! I SCREAMED, and hurled myself out of my swaddle and limped away. Mom started crying because she saw I was hurt and upset. and Dad felt SO bad!!!

The damage wasn't bad, but I was angry. I knew I had to play my cards right. I could use this to my advantage... I instantly began showing my dismay, and within minutes of this ordeal, they both rushed over with one of my favorites. CANNED LAMB! Yum!!!!!! Then, treats! All different flavors, too! I was fine after a few minutes, though M&D were shaken up for awhile and still worried about me the next day!

Here is a brief timeline in photos of what I put them through...

This is what my face probably looked at the moment dad clipped me poorly.

This is the look I was giving them as I sat there, slightly bleeding...

When I'm angry at mom or dad, I turn my back to them and ignore them. This is a sure fire way to judge how angry I am. This is when I'm my maddest.

Wait a second........... Did I just hear a can open? Is that?? Could it really be??? LAMB!!!!!!

This reminded me that I DO have the best M& D in the world. No further reason to punish them more, my paw doesn't even bother me anymore. So I curled up on the bed to rest up for a full day of being bad tomorrow!

White or Red?

After a long week at work, I like to spoil my mom & dad. Here I am playing bartender and scaling the wine rack to pick them the perfect bottle! It was weird though, they yelled at me to get down! They must not have realized I was trying to do something nice for them, and wasn't actually planning on drinking it myself!

Do. NOT. Disturb.

I love all things about the bathroom. I love running off with toys & food to bring to the bathroom. I love sitting on the counter and gawking at myself in the mirror. I love sitting on the counter while people shower and watching them. And I LOVE the sink. I HATE being disturbed while in the sink.

Ok. ONE picture. After that, I want to go back to sleep.

THAT'S ENOUGH! Back away from MY sink!

Sleeping With Dad...

I love sleeping with M&D in the bed. But, I especially love sleeping on my dad, laying like he does!
Check me out mimicking the way he sleeps. I slept like this for a while!

At one point, he had his arm around me. But, mom made him take it off for photograph purposes.

I don't have much regard at ALL for Karl's personal space (or anyone elses). Karl has many spots he likes to lay in during certain times of the day. The cubby hole of our cat tree is where he naps between when dad leaves for work, and mom gets up. Usually, I lay in my bed. But today, I decided I wanted to lay in the cubby hole too. Karl was less than thrilled.  But, he was barricaded in by me, so he couldn't leave. I wanted to cuddle with him anyway, so I'm glad he stayed!!

Karl looks so angry that I'm in here with him. I'm a little annoyed that mom woke us up to take photos...

No Mom. You won't get a better pic of us if you try to take it from an angle above us.

Look! Karl's hind legs look like they belong to me!

Can you believe how big I am? I cover most of Karl!

I REALLY love bubbles. They are so mesmerizing.
I love when mom opens a new bottle of sparkling water, because it is especially bubbly when she opens it. As soon as I hear it, I run over to gawk at it. I also love trying to steal her cap. These pictures were taken over an hour. There were many more, but they were more or less the same.

At long last... bubbles!

I like to get as close as I can to the bottle to make sure I get the best view of the fizzies.

MOM! Can you believe what is going on inside this bottle??!! Can I have the cap though when the bubbles are gone?

Watching sparkling water, believe it or not, is very exhausting.
