The boys are not usually allowed upstairs, but sometimes my favorite boy toy lets them come up to keep me company as I get ready for work in the morning. They were so cute at the top of the stairs, he got my camera out. This caused the boys to give him identical quizzical expressions asking, “What cha’ doing Dad?”
After which they thundered down the hallway to jump on the bed and act wild. You’d think I had small children up there bouncing on the bed, instead of a full grown (and I might mention older dog) upside down on the comforter, scratching his back as he wiggles all over. Each time I vacuum the bedroom, I also vacuum the comforter to get the dog hair off.
The boys also like the water in the bottom of the shower. For some reason it tastes much better than what’s in their water dish! The next time I bathe the beagle, I’m running the shower water first, then letting him upstairs to lap it up. Hopefully he won’t notice me in the shower with him until the door is closed and it’s late for him to run out.
Word for tomorrow – SOMETIMES. If you prefer to work ahead, see the list for the week under “A Word A Day”.
