  2. That darned cat! I’m sure that were there a feline in my house, the conversations with the dogs wouldn’t be fit for publication. Your boxers are so polite β€” as are you, Sir.

    1. Thank you Keith. They both learned early in life that chasing the kitty was off limits. (Not that they haven’t wanted to do it)

      2. This is an equal treat opportunity zone. It is almost impossible to hand out a treat to one with out the other. Can you say pester?

  6. Can’t Lucy deal with a little moggy face-pulling on her own? She must have a bark that could send el catto up the curtains.

  8. Aw, Lucy is so precious. Baily and Stella are cute too. Stella looks torn between lapping up a little water and knocking the glass over just so she can see it spill.

  16. How do you get anything done with all this cuteness around, John?? Having a cat at my house would be a nightmare — the poor thing would hiss itself to death … after Dallas herded it into a corner and feasted the evil eye on it!!
