A naked dog and other happenings of the weekend

Tag had a slumber party this weekend. It went well, though perhaps not as fun as we had hoped it would be. Tag's sleep over buddy was Pixel, a Chinese Crested. Yup, folks... he's naked. And he was super watchful of Tag.

After a little sniffing and some "PLAY WITH ME!!!" barking, Tag lost interest and left him alone, but the kittens! The kittens tracked Pixel from the moment he entered the house. They worked as a team! Jack would tail the strange naked creature and Gill would lay in wait, leaping out when Pixel would least expect it and causing him to screech and race for cover. It was hilarious!

In other news, I rearranged a few things in the house today. Spring cleaning if you will. I got sick of the back room (dubbed office) being so gross and unusable. We keep the litter boxes back there and a baby gate up to limit the access to the room to animals that will NOT snack on cat poo... (no names, no names)...

So I moved the desk out... and the red chair... and the shelf of medicines and whatnots... basically it's an empty room except for a couple book shelves and some cat furniture. So happy with it now! Whew! Here are Bangs and the nameless kitty enjoying the new set-up and some early March sunshine.

I'll leave you with a couple pictures that may or may not prove that my animals secretly despise me. :)


  1. Awww, poor Pixel! He warmed up by the end of it, but it must have been rather unsettling to be tracked and stalked and barked at. It's funny though, because Monique's parents brought their dog Gilbert (chihuahua) over, and Pixel was totally tracking and play-barking at Gilbert, while poor Gilbert ran around with his tail tucked.

    Can't wait to see the back room makeover.

    How come Jack and nameless kitty don't have torture pictures?

  2. Your dog has gotten so big!! He's adorablee.

    (and I also love the naked Chinese Crested dog! lol I like that breed)

    I'm impressed that you got a cat to pose wearing a santa hat. That must take skillz. (Sleep with one eye open. Your cats have the advantage of numbers)


  3. Leslie, I don't have any photos of Jack and nameless kitty torture because... let's just say I know who I can pick on and who would lose it.

    Lauren, I have better pictures of Bangs in costume. I'll have to post. It's not so hard only because he sits there and looks so pitiful.

    And I have been thinking that it's odd I haven't posted about riding... will write that blog soon. :)


What's on your mind? I wanna know!
