BJ is of NO Help

Admittedly BJ knows he can sleep on the bed, but he sometimes takes it too far. 
Tonight he refused to move when I was putting on fresh linens  He just stood there. 

The bed is fine this way.

Then he flopped down and didn't even look at me.

I'm comfortable.

I'm not moving.

After much cajoling, I was finally able to get the sheet on.  The blanket was another thing entirely. You can see how defiant he was and wouldn't let me complete the job.

No.  Work around me.

There was a struggle with a little grrrr on his part.  But I did get the blanket pulled up on one side of the bed.

He got really annoyed and just put his body down and closed his eyes.  I threw the pillow on him hoping he would get up so I could place it where it needed to be.

Ha!  He ignored that and continued to sleep.

That's it.  I'm going to sleep.

Whose house is this anyway?  I'm willing to share.  BJ doesn't think he needs to share.

What happens in your house?  How do they stake out territory wherever they want?

Strawberry Mouth

I'm beginning to like this smoothie sharing.

Today we had a strawberry-banana.  When mom put it down, I really didn't like the smell when mom first put it in my dish.

Not sure of the smell.
She had to call me back and put it in front of me.  I gave it a try and then lapped it up.

I decided I liked it.

Lynda was cautious because she didn't know if it was okay for me to eat strawberries.  She checked three sites from a Google search and found it was okay.  Tomorrow it's blueberries and she needs to check that.

What's your favorite special "human" treat?

Mango Mouth

Since mom bought a new blender she's been making smoothies every morning.  This is a feat for someone who dusts her stove and all appliances.  Today she made a tasty mango smoothie.  I know it's not tasty Tuesday, but -

Slurp, slurp

1 cup Almond Breeze
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 banana
1 whole mango
5 ice cubes
Turn on blender and push Smoothie.
60 sec. later it shuts off and
Voila, a Mango Smooth

She couldn't take my staring at her and she finally gave me some!

Licking my mouth
You can see my mango mouth.  I loved my (mom's) mango smoothie.

Maybe mom will share her smoothie tomorrow - it might be: peach, strawberry, blueberry, or a combination.

Please, please, please.

Good News About Online Puppy Sales

The USDA has finally done something about internet sales of puppies.

We may finally see a curtailing of or an end to the thriving puppy mill business.  Fewer places to sell, fewer puppies needed.
Taken from the News Release from the USDA.

USDA Restores Important Check and Balance on Retail Pet Sales to Ensure Health, Humane Treatment
WASHINGTON, Sept. 10, 2013--The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has revised the definition of “retail pet store” under the Animal Welfare Act to restore an important check and balance that helps ensure the health and humane treatment of pet animals sold sight unseen.
The previous definition of “retail pet store” was developed more than 40 years ago, before the Internet provided an alternate method of selling pets to the public.  Some breeders were selling pet animals sight unseen, without providing an opportunity for the buyer to observe the animal prior to purchase, as was intended by the regulation.  APHIS is revising the definition in its regulations to bring animals involved in these transactions under the Animal Welfare Act so that they can be monitored by our Agency for health and humane treatment.

Off the Grid

We've been off the grid for a few days.  The Jewish Holidays kept us off and then a few things made Lynda busy.

Mom is mad and may get rid of her Samsung Galaxy s3.  The photo app, Gallery, keeps freezing.  She can take pictures; she just can't see them or move them to the MAC.  She's home tomorrow and will try to get it to work.  If not, it's going somewhere.

See you soon.

What Happens When our Pets are Mischievous?

On the way home from the park we went to Home Depot and mom bought Loctite Super Glue.  Lynda did NOT buy me cookies. (whimper)


SHE needed it to fix an important lucite box that I broke.  I tried to tell her it was Harvey's fault.  (Harvey is Jimmy Stewarts' white rabbit.)  She didn't buy it.  She also didn't get mad at me even though the lucite box contained her teddy bear that she had since she was 4 1/2 and her Tiny Tears doll she had since she was 5 1/2.  That was a century ago.  It's an antique.

Maybe it will be fixed.

One thing she was upset about was my knocking over a cup of tea; and it spilled all over our new light green chenille chairs.  There was a loud clap of thunder and I got scared and stared to shake.  I ran to mom and jumped up on her lap.

She did get annoyed and ran to the kitchen for Bounty, blotted the fabric and sat down so I could jump of her lap.  She said tea stains.  But that was it.

I'm sure there are other things I've done, I just can't remember.

It got me to thinking about how our humans react and what they do.

How did your human react and what did s/he do when you borke something and caused other damage?
