First sign of spring

Sunbathing on the deck.

The caregiver

Betty had a little procedure, and is recovering nicely.

Mostly due¬†to Piks’ efforts to keep her from moving.

There can be only one

Many years ago, Betty bought a chair. She liked this chair; it was comfortable, came with an ottoman to put her feet up and looked nice by her living room window. Sitting in her chair to read a good book was especially a pleasure.

Since then, the ottoman has been claimed – and renamed “pickleman” – for napping in the sun and monitoring the front yard for other dogs with the audacity to walk by. And now, Pickles wants the chair.

Even though Betty happens to be sitting in it.


7:00 am: Drag tail out of bed. Check the weather. Head to kitchen for breakfast.

7:07 am: Maybe go outside in the back or for a walk. Run around the house a few times. Follow Betty from room to room. Eventually settle in for a nap.

12:30 pm: Go downstairs and let Poppy know it’s time for lunch. He says it’s too early, to come back at 1:00 pm.

1:00 pm: Find Poppy. Now he’s snoring. Climb up, nose to nose, and concentrate hard. LUNCHTIME!

1:30 pm: Sitting down to lunch. And that’s how things get done.


The story of a nap.

Any nap.

Every nap.

Rest your weary head

Yep, she’s standing and napping.

We could easily do a few of weeks’ worth of posts devoted to photos of Pickles surrounded by her toys.

(Full disclosure: it’s not as organic as it seems. Poppy likes to arrange the toys around her so that they’re always within paw’s reach.)
