This is what my dad’s can see when they are eating at the kitchen table. I squeeze in between the table and whoever is sitting there. Sometimes I get lucky and they give me something or a crumb drops!
This is our humans bed, or at least they think it is! We have our own beds, but we really like this one better. For some reason our dads don’t want to sleep in our beds, so we sleep with them in theirs. Whenever one of our humans goes upstairs we always go and get on the bed just in case we can take a nap with them. We are usually ready to go to bed after dark and can’t wait to run upstairs to sleep for the night.
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.
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.
