It's raining cats and you-know-whats today...my human is kinda glad, 'cuz there were 5 things on the family's calendar but one got cancelled and three got rained out. It's been a ruff week around here, that's why I've been MIA. Little Boy was sick Mon. and Tue., Boy Twin was sick Wed. and Fri. and Girl Twin was sick Thur. and Fri. My human dad had to go out of town and my human had a gazillion things to do, so by yesterday she was run down, got a sinus attack and still had to be a timer for a swim meet. Whew! No wonder I got no attention whatsoever this week.
So today, they are all taking it rather easy, snuggling under blankets, drinking tea, baking, reading, catching up on DVR'd shows, knitting, and one of my favorite activities: napping!
Which brings me to today's installment of Training Your Human. Remember how my human used to banish me from the kitchen table bench? And the couch in the TV room was a big no-no? Well...ahem...I am proud to announce that I have successfully trained her to let sleeping dogs lie where they want! How did I manage this feat, you ask? I noticed that when she gets all busy & frazzled with the kiddies, she's less likely to push me off the bench or couch, especially if I lie there very quietly without moving. Maybe she doesn't see me. I also got Girl Twin to work on her, too: "But Mom, she's so cozy lying here with me!" I guess my human realized it's no biggy to let me catch 40 winks where I want, since I don't destroy the furniture and haven't shed much (yet! Will she be in for a big surprise in the Spring, hee-hee!).
So this is what I'll be doing today as the rain pitter-patters against the windows:
