Why is everyone so sleepy?

May 18, 2010

Poor Willow had an eye surgery not long ago, but what’s everyone else’s excuse? Sometimes Milton doesn’t move all day. At least they are all getting along.

christmas roadtrip!!!

January 6, 2009

50 hours in a car (round trip) with a dog. Pretty fun.

Actually, Diego did really well. Aside from crying every time the car stopped. We all got to spend quality time with family that we never get to see. Grandma and Grandpa, and aunts and uncles and cousins. Good times!

Diego bugged us to go to Dollywood, but we only drove up the street so he could see it. 50 bucks a ticket is pretty steep! I think he appreciated the effort all the same.

All in all, it was a great, RELAXING time, and the kitties got a Diego break at home, filled with lots of visitors.

Every day Fork and Diego have an awesome chase/wrestling match. Fork usually wins. They start with Diego harrassing Fork, and then go into some great chases, and usually end with Fork biting Diego. Diego seems to get pretty worked up, and Fork is super chill. It’s pretty funny to watch, but can be hard on the ears at times. It’s all play, and no one ever gets hurt. Luckily for Diego Fork wear soft claws, or he could accidentally take an eye out.

Pugs and heat just don’t mix well. I think that’s a well known fact. Living in an extra warm climate may not be great idea, but we manage to get by.

The other night however, we met our match with summer. Our ac totally went out, and we had to spend the night trying to keep cool. Poor Diego. We had to keep spraying him with cool water and parking him in front of the fan. It was a long, long night…

milton’s nervous breakdowns

April 1, 2008

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.”

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!

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.

Diego had the most fun ever today. He got to go hang out at my sister’s house, and run run run around the backyard. We’ve never seen him run around outside because we haven’t been able to bring him out yet. We’re waiting for his shots. It was nice to see him run around, and man is he fast!!!
