Tiki & Atticus are Double Trouble

Tiki and Atticus live with their Momma and Poppa in the great state of Michigan. Tiki is a lovely feline and he enjoys playing string and taking long naps in his sunshine spot. Atticus is a precious Boston Terrier and he is always up for a good romp with his squirrel and then a good nap.

I think we can share...

Tiki, I really like napping in the sunspot. It's nice and warm.
That's what I've been trying to tell you. If you would just settle down every once in awhile we could nap together in the sunspot more often. I'm telling you, it's the best place to relax and sleep.
You were so right. I think now that I'm getting a little older I'm learning to appreciate the simpler things in life ... Hey, Tiki? Do you know what a 'nooter' is? Momma took me to the vet today and the lady said I'm going to get a 'nooter'. Is it some sort of toy? or treat?
Hm, that word sounds vaguely familiar... but I can't really remember. The vet people are sneaky though. They act all nice and sweet and give you treats but then they shove things into your bum and give you gross medicines... so it's probably not something fun to play with or a tasty treat...
You're right about the bum thing ... I guess I'll just trust Momma... she wouldn't let anything awful happen to me...

I want some of that

Why can't I have some of that stuff?? It's in a bowl just like mine.. but whenever I try to get a little taste my Momma and Poppa yell at me like I'm doing the naughtiest of the naughty! Sheesh!
Come on Momma ... just a wee wittle nibble?


Would you believe it? Atticus took a nap by me and didn't harrass me once. It was a nice nap.

The Zoo

Today my Momma took me to the John Ball Park Zoo. There was a walk to raise money for the Humane Society. There were all kinds of other dogs there for me to sniff and play with. Someone got a photo of me in action. The walk was fun. Also we walked with one of my Mommas friends who has this HUGE dog. Now, when I say HUGE I mean it. He was bigger than Gatsby!! My new friends name is Ernie and he is a Newfoundland. We had a fun time walking together.
After the walk I ran around and sniffed all kinds of dogs and played and everyone gave me treats.
Gatsby showed up too. All my friends were there!
It was exciting to see all the different dogs and people. All the people and little people loved me and wanted to give me hugs and kisses. I loved it!
Momma said that Gatsby is coming over tonight for dinner so I will have to take a nap... I think I need a nap. I had a very exciting morning.

My costume

Momma put part these things on my feet... they were supposed to go with the demon hat but I don't like to wear that thing. It's not nice on my head. The things on my feet made me dance!

Why does she do this to me?

Can you believe my Momma would do something like this to me??? LOOK at me! I am just beside myself with embarrasment and shame. When this, this, THING is on my head for some reason I become paralyzed. I can't move because I am just so disgusted with myself. The little monster, Atticus, was jumping all over me and there was no way to defend myself. Why doesn't the little beast have to wear something like this??

I am so ashamed...

Naptime on the couch is perhaps the best nap of all.

Those evil little squirrels

This guy is the culprit. You can tell by looking at him. Lounging on that limb, taking a nap after his overindulgence of tasty sunflower treats.
It started off as any typical morning would. I was sunning myself in the front window, watching those darn birds flap around like lunatics when this guy came outta nowhere ... next thing I knew the birds were scattering in every which direction and the birdfeeder was laying there on the ground! I imagine the squirrel snarfed up his fill of sunflower seeds and waddled his way up into that tree completely full and satisfied. I thought there was nothing more that I wanted to get my paws on than those darn birds but this guy has been added to my list. Not only did he scatter my prey but then he has the nerve to sit and stare at my from that branch! Oh I'll get you Mr. Squirrel, one day you'll be sorry ... so sorry.

Does everyone have a monster in their home?

I don't know who this monster thinks he is but he comes out and bugs me more than once a week. He is obnoxiously loud and he likes to chase me around. I yell and yell but he doesn't stop. This guy is my enemy. Tiki doesn't like the monster either. He always runs away. What a wimp! He could at least try to join forces with me to beat the evil monster... but nooooo. He just scampers into Momma and Poppas room and jumps into the window. Weenie!!


This is a photo of our friend Gatsby. He's looking sad and lonely here ... he needs to come over again so we can cheer him up.
Speak for yourself! I don't want that beast over here again. Its tragic enough for me that I have to deal with you day and night.
Well, I think we should invite him over. You can hide in Momma and Poppas room if you don't like it.

Fun Photo

Momma figured out how to use the black and white feature on the camera.

Those birds!

You birds are always flitting around taunting me. Well, one day I'll get you. You won't even see me coming ... one day I'll leap through this window and get every single one of you!!!

You are getting sleepy... look into my eyes...
You will not recall that I dragged all of your underthings into the living room so I could chew on them...

I can still fit!

Momma and Poppa did not think it was possible. But I can still fit under the couch! They thought for sure I was too big, but I'm not!!


Every day Momma and Poppa eat dinner at the kitchen table... in the meantime Atticus expects me to entertain him. Apparently he can't handle one moment alone. When Momma and Poppa eat I find this an opportune time to eat my meal. Makes sense, don't you think? Apparently the little beast doesn't feel the same way. Instead of eating his dinner he chooses to bother me. You won't believe it, but he sniffs my bum. I know, it's embarrasing. I don't understand the reasoning behind this... I'm assuming this is a dog thing because I don't go around sniffing bums. But why, I ask, must he do this while I'm trying to eat?? It's just plain rude. I finally tire of his constant harrasment and give up... I'd rather lie aorund on the floor than have my meal disrupted by a bum sniffer!
