Last bit of sunshine this afternoon

Mom comes home tonight, so I'm saving my energy for her.

Sleeping in!

This is what we did this morning. Isn't Dad attractive in the morning?

Lazy Saturday

Rolling around on the couch just because it's Saturday. Dad woke up kind of early today, but I talked him into going back to bed and sleeping away most of the morning.

Ah, the carefree life...

Back from getting my stitches out!

Yay! Those stitches were kind of itchy. Now I don't have to wear that humiliating donut around my neck.

On a totally unrelated note, look how long my tail fur is getting. It's catching up with my wild ear fur.

Scene of the crime

Someone has broken into the rawhide cabinet.
There's the culprit.

Thursday Morning

I'll be good if you just leave me out of my exercise pen today. I promise.

Okay, I'll hang out in here with my very fashionable donut on... Will you visit me at lunch, Dad?

Let's start the bachelor weekend with a video

Yummy rawhide!

Bachelor weekend

I'm leaving town for a conference through Monday, so the blog is in Shawn's hands. I will be counting on him just as much as all of you to keep Chloe's blog updated. His track record for updating his own blog isn't so hot, which makes me nervous.

Can I go outside, pleeeeease?

Overbite from the side

A Close Call

Dad came home from Target with a new pet bed for me yesterday. (Yes, he picked the tackiest one they had, didn't he?) But it was a blast! He set it in my exercise pen and not three minutes later, I had rendered the decorative fraying that was clearly not reinforced into long threads. I couldn't understand why Mom was freaking out and crying about me swallowing it. Dad couldn't either; he's definitely not as safety-conscious as Mom. She explained to us that thousands of pets die every year from swallowing thread; it cuts through intestines. I was just having fun, and it unraveled so easily! Look at the pictures Mom took:

The girls

For Bob Barker

Chloe is recuperating from her spay this morning. We'll be visiting her at the vet's tonight, but she is going to stay there overnight.

More pictures to come on Friday!

P.S. Chloe weighs 7.9 pounds now!

On her back

Two different faces

Our recent stay at my parents' sweltering home raised my tolerance of high temperatures by a few degrees. Can you believe I am wearing a sweatshirt? -KN

Progress on the feline front

The current state of affairs in the Nyland-Hoke household:

Lucy now enjoys Chloe's company more than that of her fellow cats. Toffee is holding steady; she enjoys a playful game of matador/bull (she is the former, Chloe is the latter) every few days. I would like to think Wendell realized how much he adored Chloe when she was away, but more likely he decided to ingratiate himself to us by sidling up to the dog more. When she is on our lap, he cuddles up next to her with nary a hiss. Seymore, sadly, has regressed a bit.

You may recall June's decidedly frostier relations:

Last Sunday, I took this picture in hour 9 of our 11-hour car trip. Chloe is clearly getting a little slap-happy.
