From his vantage point on the couch my brother Cato can watch our human parents while they are in the kitchen cooking or eating. If a morsel of food falls to the floor of if a bag is opened, especially our treats, we can be there to scarf it up in a second! Do I look hungry?
Since I have to protect my humans at all times I think it is necessary for me to make sure everything they eat is okay. Here I am inspecting my dad’s meal for safety. Unfortunately he doesn’t agree with my job as food safety inspector because I didn’t get anything to sample! I keep trying though and every once and a while I get a snack!
We love to sit on the arm of the couch and look out onto the deck. From this place we can see if there are any birds at the bird feeder or if there are any kids playing in their back yard. We can also see if anyone is sneaking any food in the kitchen and trying to hide it from us. If anyone wants to sit down we usually stretch out so they can’t. Cato will leave but Lucky won’t move.

Ever since we were little puppies we loved to be picked up by our humans, especially Cato. When Cato was younger he just loved to be held and carried by everybody. Now that we are both over 40 lbs. it is a little difficult for our humans to pick us up and carry us around, but Kevin does once and awhile. Lucky is a little nervous, but Cato doesn’t want to get down. When our humans are sitting on the couch we have to sit on top of them all of the time. Do you think we’re spoiled?
In the last post you saw a picture of us taking a nap before bed. Now we are showing what happens when it is actual bed time and we go to sleep with our humans.

When we are in bed we don’t like to move an inch. Our humans have to squeeze in between us when they get into bed. We sleep until morning and until we decide when our humans get up!
Last year my humans bought me a small kiddie pool and tried to surprise me with it. It had the head of a dog on it, because I guess puppies could also use it. When I saw it I was so scared I barked at it and jumped over a 6 ft. fence! I was brought back and placed in the pool but I didn’t like it. I wouldn’t even just put my feet in the water. When my daddies went swimming I liked to watch and bark. I love to bite the water when it comes out a garden hose and I wanted to bite the splashes!
Finally daddy Kevin carried me into the water with him. I even started swimming without anyone teaching me! After a while I learned to climb on the ladder and jump in and then when I wanted to get out I learned to go to the ladder and climb out! I love playing catch in the pool and biting the splashes that people make. I’m not supposed to go in alone, but a couple of times I jumped in by myself.
All the time I am in the pool Cato is on the edge barking constantly because he wants to play, but he is too afraid to go in. Kevin even took him in the water and he could swim too, but he really doesn’t like to go in the pool. The pool is closed for the year, so I will have to wait until next year. So sad.
My name is Cato and I am a male cattle dog, but I’m neutered. At my last vet’s appointment I weighed 45.5 lbs. I am a total lap dog! I am very laid back and I love to cuddle with my two dads on the couch. My favorite activity is sleeping, but I also love to run around and play fight with my sister Lucky. I always try to sit on the laps of my visitors, but I guess I am too big now. I love to play ball, but I still haven’t gotten the knack of bringing the ball back to the person who threw it. Usually Lucky steals it from me as soon as I get the ball. I like to go for walks and I am very well behaved, unlike my sister. I love playing with my human neighbor kids, who are triplets. I love my sister Lucky, even though she steals my treats and toys. I do not like to be separated from her even for a little while.

Hi everybody! Our names are Cato and Lucky and we are new to the Internet. We are Cattle Dogs, or really a Cattle Dog mix. We are brother and sister a little over a year old. We were adopted by our 2 human daddies when we were about 3 months old. When our humans were looking for a puppy they only wanted one dog, but when they saw we were the only tow left of our litter they took both of us. We are really happy that they adopted both of us because we don’t like to be separated. We are very active dogs and not always well behaved. We have never had a blog before, so we decided to write this one. We will write about our adventures and show many photos of us. I hope you become our friends and enjoy reading about us. You don’t even have to give us any treats!
