Weekend Guests

When our kids go out of town, the grand-dogs come to Grandma's house. Since everyone seemed to have plans this weekend but me, life became crazily critter-filled. Brady, our son's dog stayed two nights. Tinker Bell, our daughter's dog, is with us for the week. That means quite a few adjustments, especially when you throw in the fact that we're ripping down wallpaper and spackling and sanding walls.

The fur kids don't always play nicely. For example, Brady is an in-your-face kind of dog. He especially loves to chase Bogey when given the opportunity. Therefore Bogey feels Brady deserves a comeuppance.

"Seriously, Dude, back off or else."

"I'm not kidding..."

"You asked for it, pal!"

From her sofa perch, Tinker Bell watches Brady get whacked: "So uncouth."

Indy adds his two cents: "Butt out, Buster. If anyone chases my cat it's going to be me!"

"Yeah, right. Do I look worried?"

Animals just crack me up - they have such personalities, don't they? Yours look so fun! And you're so nice to let them all stay - I don't think I'll have quite that attitude and my Smeagol is such a brat, can't tolerate anyone in his territory!

Loved the pics and running dialogue! Could almost hear them!!

You go, Bogey! They are the intruders, after all!

At least Bogey warned him! Next time brady might not be so lucky!

The photos are priceless, and your captions are right on. Puppies and rehabbing? Pat, do you feel like YOU need rehab, or maybe just R&R after this encounter? You're such a good "grandma".

Cats rule and dogs drool, right Bogey?

Whoops, almost forgot I was a dog! I gotta rethink this.

A picture is worth a thousand words and yours tell the story so well!

That Bogey has such personality! Photogenic as well!

Twix said...

You gotta be one special G-ma to take in all those grandkids at the same time! I bet they all love being with you!

Mack and Mia said...

Bogey has got them all where he wants them! Besides it's so fun to bop the pups on the heads. We clearly know who is the boss in that house! Oh how the tables have turned!

Wags and Woofs,

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Too cute...The Bogie rules!! We had a Persian b4 Hootie moved into our house and he(Chuck) totally was the boss of me. Of course,he was 11yrs old and I was just a pup. He's no longer with us,but I loved to (attemp to)play with his tail!!
Smooches, BabyRocketDog

Like Indy,I,Hootie, start out my pillow prep with "the dig" too.Mommy just didn't capture it on film!
ps-I'd have done the same thing your grandpooch did...cats fascinate me!

Ahh haha! The last kitty picture is priceless!!

Yes, juggling animal critters that don't always get along can be quite a challenge... at least that's what Grammy has said a lot lately! She wishes you luck. We'd just like to come and visit so WE can chase the cat, too! The CC
