Snug as a bug...

The animals have taken over :)



As you can see from this adorable photo, Maddie's new place is on the couch, cuddled with whoever else wants to be there. She is very affectionate, and doesn't mind sharing the space. Generous, right?

Last night, after the kids were asleep, Wife and I were watching TV and arranged on the couch like this:

Wife.....Jordan (dalmatian).....Me.......Maddie (boxer/whippet)

Wife got up for a moment, comes back to find a cat in her place, nearly sitting on the dog's head. I moved the cat for her, lifted the dog's front end, and she squeezed back into place. Jordan started making heavy breathing sounds of being uncomfortable. Wife got on the floor. I offered to move the new young punk dog, but no....she stayed on the floor despite the pain she's been having in her back, arms and hands. I urged her to get up off the floor, but I think she was holding out for a new massage chair - a place to call her own. It will probably need to be set up inside a cage to keep both kids and animals off it. Now THAT would be attractive in our living room!

of a martyr. There was only 10 more minutes of the show so it's not like I stayed on the floor all that long. But that's me - always being sure everyone else has what they need. :)

Man - I hate when I don't proof read. I typed "I'm not THAT much of a martyr..." but it wasn't ready for my fast typing and missed that part.

Sorry. I really should learn to proof read better....or at all. :)

What we *won't* do for our animals might be easier to list than what we *will* do!! It's incurable. And fatal!! LOL!!
