holiday weekend

August 30, 2008

Yay! Holidays are for resting. We really need a break around here, so we’re going to take it easy this weekend. Of course the cats and Diego take it pretty easy most days. They pull their weight by lovin’ on us. They are our therapy when we come home from working long hours. We almost don’t know what to do with ourselves! It feels like we’ve been on the go for months.

It didn’t take William and the boys long to figure out what to do with the time off…

We’re definitely looking forward to more of this.

willow’s happy place

July 1, 2008

We love Diego. We feel bad for Willow however. She still is having problems adjusting to him. Milton and Fork seem to be ok with having him around most days, but Willow can’t deal. We’re really not sure how best to deal with this situation. For now, we let Willow hang out in the tub. It’s her favorite spot in the house, and usually Diego isn’t in the bathroom to harass her. It’s her happy place, her safe place.

Being around Diego gives her agita, and thus as a person who just wants everyone in the family to get along…it gives me agita as well.

Diego just wants her to play with him…but she’s not interested in playing with dogs so our next plan of action is just to try to get him to stop trying to play with her at all. That’s a tall order for a 6 month old pug.

How could you hate anything with a face like that?

milton’s nervous breakdowns

Poor kitty. He’s still dealing with not being the center of attention all the time. It’s not easy for a cat who’s used to getting all the attention he wants to sharing the love. No love for you!

He’s taken to walking around the house with Diego’s toys in his mouth, crying. He mopes with the toys, he whines, he cries, he sits on top of them. It’s partly cute, partly funny and partly sad. I usually take the toy away, and do my best to comfort him. On this occasion, I wasn’t quite as nice, and I took a bunch of pictures of him. Sorry Milton!

Diego’s like “what you doing? You crazy.”

memories…

March 27, 2008

I just came across these photos of William and Diego from when we went to visit him for the first time. He was 2 and a half weeks old. I can’t believe he was that small!

1 step forward, 2 steps back

I don’t care what Paula Abdul says, opposites don’t attract.

Diego was definitely not on his best behavior today. He just couldn’t get along with Fork. We brought them both outside today on the front porch. Diego had a hard time with it, especially because he was on a leash. Fork, for the most part was pretty chill, although he did bop Diego on the head a few times. Diego’s pretty lucky that Fork wears those soft claws, or he might be hurting right now.

First we tried sitting near each other. Fork was down with this. He even tried rubbing his face against Diego. Gotta give him props for that. Good kitty!

That was a good start, but Diego was a little riled, and needed to walk it out. So William walked him up and down the porch.

It obviously didn’t work that well, as you can see, he turned into an attack pug.

Fork just looks baffled…and bored…and over it.

Who can blame him. After this Diego went into crazy puppy mode. Running, chasing his tail, and overall, just being a freak, and we gave up and went inside. Oh well, we tried!

All that craziness sent Diego straight to sleepytown once back inside. Sweet.
