Dog Days (and one cat)

Here are some photos from the last few months of Louie, our puppy and a couple of Belle, our 10 year old dog. She does not like to have her picture taken as much so not as many shots of her! Since we adopted Louie the beginning of October he has grown about 20 pounds. He has gotten more black spots and even one on his pink eye lid! He is now 6 months old.

True, not a dog but one of our wily cats. This is Tigger and he is 12.5 years old. He apparently needed a tasty drink from the toilet!! Belle drinks from the toilet, too. I have seen Louie try, but he is still too short to reach.

Louie sleeps in the weirdest positions!! Then he snores wildly.

Louie ringing in the new year with a bottle of champagne!!

Belle being her regal, aloof self.

Belle and Louie resting on their doggie blankets. They rarely get this close when sleeping. Louie would, but Belle is not a cuddler.

Double A and Louie in her bed. She tries to get him to sleep with her. Some nights he stays in there until we put him in his kennel when we go to bed. Problem is, he sleeps practically on top of her!

This must have been back in November, as it is our old furniture. The kids were signing an ode to Louie.

Bumblebee and Louie snuggling on the floor watching TV. Louie is very snuggly which could be a problem as he continues to grow. We estimate he will be about 65 pounds. Belle is reaching 50 pounds as she refuses to eat her old lady food and steals Louie's puppy food instead.

On our snow day this week the kids set up an "animal adoption center" in the living room with stuffed animals. Louie was their only "live victim." He is very patient with them and tolerant of what they do to him. He wore this baby bib for about an hour!
