archie the cat

Archie

This is our new pet, well he thinks so. Comes to our door about once a day, like he owns the place.

It’s out neighbours cat, whom our dog have utterly fallen for. When she hears his bell, she goes spare and demands to be let out into the garden to greet him. Archie isn’t much fuzzed about Tilley’s dancing and downward dog “I wanna play” stands. He tries to head bud her and rub up against her, but this she don’t understand what that means and then tries to do more downward dog playing. To which he “hit” her in a play like manner with his paws, which causes Tilley to walk backwards with her front paws up one at the time trying to pad him.

She even took one of her toys out to him to show/play with. Archie just gave it a light pad with his paws and wandered off to lay in another spot.

This friendship have taught our mutt that cats are great. Sadly not all cats have read that memo. So we still need to keep her on tight control, as she runs up to any cat in the neighbourhood.

Gotcha

Today is the 5th gotcha day for our rescue dog Tilley. 

She has become a little bit naughty lately. A bit like a miss behaving child over at the grandparents. At home she will ask for a carrot, her evening snack, sit bum to the ground and would never take an empty crips bag from the coffee table. 

But over MiL, she will just dip her bum when asked to sit. Even taken crips out of the bags of the table. Sneak out into the kitchen and nick a carrot without asking.

Can we get angry with her when she is naughty … nope 🙂
