No. They don't even try actually.

That's what happens when there is something interesting on "Cat TV":



Oh yeah, they have a huge flat screen TV too!

We have a pug (picture in the link of one of his more dignified moments). Frank likes vegetables, cars, dressing up, and deconstructionist philosophy. He has a low center of gravity and his signature wrestling move is "the plow". He is the most interesting dog in the world and a ladies man^H^H^Hdog.

Your pug is adorable, Jacob! I love your description of him! My collies are more into balancing giant tree limbs on their noses, but I hope to one day explain more lofty intellectual pursuits to them successfully.

Peter, our four-pound dwarf Orange Rex bunny, made it to his 10th birthday. The diuretic seems to be working, although he's slowed down a half-step.

However he's getting very brave in his old age, or maybe it's his bucket list, but this behavior is brand-new. He's been nosing his way past the screen door out onto the back lanai around sunrise, and today he made it into the mulch. He enjoys golden glory, gardenia, geranium, and dwarf mondo-- but zoysia seems to be his favorite.

He's been pretty cautious so far, although I've been practically hovering over him every second he's out there and hoping that he doesn't panic or bolt. He grudgingly listens when I tell him to "Go home", but I know not to push my luck until after he's had at least 10 minutes. I just hope he hears/smells the neighborhood cats and heads back to the door before before they see him.

I have a startling number of pictures of DH with various dogs and cats draped across him! SG, I agree, your hubby is a winner!
I love these other dog pics, especially that happy pup in the park!

Nothing special about the pics. But, the thing is that the blanket has previously been carefully folded and hanged over the back and top of the rocking chair. How can she pull it down and wrap herself so well with the blanket some time later?. I havenīt seen her do it.

It's raining, the temperature is dropping and the wind is gusting over 30 miles per hour. Open the front door and Bandit, a border collie, bounds out to the curb and gets the morning paper.... priceless!

You'll have to lie in wait and watch. It's a mystery waiting to be solved!

Here is Boots under the blanket (it is cold here in PV, only up to 70 degrees at 1 pm), and Flash under the table after I pulled back the cover. Needless to say, they were not pleased by the interruption to their naps.

It's been cold and snowy in the DFW area. My DIL sent me pictures of my grand-pets showing how they are dealing with the weather. The cat loves to snuggle into blankets while the dog is bold and adventurous.

Wow, they are really cool looking! And so full of energy! They sure can jump high, especially compared to my kitties.
