Here they are... Molly, the kitty is all comfy cozy in her ... I don't even know what to call it, but it's hers, it sits in the front room where the dogs are not allowed, and she gets to watch birds, squirrels whatever out the window ... she loves it. We had it in the family room, where we all hang out and she ignored it. Now that it has a private place (well, a place the dogs don't go), she spends much of her time there. We're glad she's happy. (yes, that's my hand making scratchy noises to get her to look up... bet all ya'all know what that's like!)
Olive is Emily's sidekick. She follows Emily everywhere. She is so afraid she'll miss something important, that whatever Emily does or wherever Emily goes, she does her best to go too. Of course, Olive is also fond of food, treats, food, eatable stuff... you know what I mean. Her one eye (she lost the other from being neglected as a puppy mill mom), is always watching us...and Emily. Oh we LOVE our Olive so much!!!
And our Emily, ever the hopeful girl. She will follow us around the kitchen, upstairs and down, with that, "Are we going now?" expectant look on her face the entire time. It's so amazing how expressive a dog's face and eyes are, isn't it? Emily never gives up... even when she finally realizes there is no walk, at least not that moment, she heaves a big sigh and either goes out in back or takes to her 'bed'... all the while giving us that intent stare designed to make us do what she wants.
Here they are on National Pet Day considering their options.
