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.

Momma told me I was a naughty boy today. Tiki and I are always so excited to see Momma when she comes home from that place that keeps her away from us during the day. Well, today she caught me with some paper stuff in my mouth. It must have clued her in to the fact that I may have messed up the living room ... again. She stormed into the house like I had torn the whole place down and yelled at me and told me I was a very naughty boy. Then, after she took me to the backyard to do my business, she yelled at me again and put me in my crate and told me I was being punished. I do not like to be punished.
I don't mean to mess up the living room, but Tiki and I start playing and all the sudden cushions are flying and Momma's yarn stuff is tasting tasty.
I should have been smarter, Momma must have sent Auntie Bethy as a spy because she came to visit me today. Of course I hadn't messed up the living room until after Aunty Bethy left.

Ferocious Beast

The following is proof that I am constantly being attacked by the beast in this house.
He attacks and paws at me while I lay defenseless on the ground. I can't believe this goes on.


Whatever Tiki says ... he starts it every time.

Sunday Brunch

On Sunday Gramma and Grampa came over for brunch. Momma made lots of yummy treats and the aunties were there too.
Momma caught Tiki sitting at the table ... he thinks he's people. Silly brother.
Momma also gave me some cantaloup melon. It tasted kinda weird... but I ate it anyway.

The Punch

Poppa caught a fight on film.

The sun is back! ... but for how long?

Have you ever read the short story by Ray Bradbury about the children who live on a planet that only receives one day of sun every few years? The name of this short story is "All Summer in a Day". I was starting to feel like I lived on Venus until Sunday when the sun arrived!! For a total of 15 days we had no sun. Just rainy, gray, gloomy depressing skies. You can understand how I was slipping into a sad, sad slump.
Well, the sun came out and we were able to sit in the sunspot for quite awhile. It was wonderful!!
... except that I had to share with Atticus.

Happy New Years!

Tiki and I wish you a Happy New Year! Momma didn't take any photos of us this weekend because she was busy playing the Sims... Poppa got Momma the Sim2 for Christmas and she can't stop playing!
Just for fun Momma thought we should post a photo of me when I first came to live here, and a photo of me now.
