Back to a Full House
No sooner had Kris taken a seat on the couch when Max jumped up and wanted to snuggle. Not to be outdone, Stanley jumped up and went straight to sleep. Sabrina looks for a spot on the couch.
Ava snuggling with the gorilla.
Eleven of the thirteen. Clockwise from bottom left is Beth, Jaime (with Thundershirt), Parker, Stanley, Sabrina, Strut, Stella (being spooned by the gorilla), Jasmine, Vegas (who I kept calling Elvis), Max (who is bigger than Stanley, but fit in the small bed), and Ava. Gracie and Sandy, the two fawn girls were upstairs with me directing the shot.
We actually had two short-tailers with us. Both Sandy and Max. Max is proud to be different. They both give a shout-out to Beryl.
What’s the hot accessory this year for the summer? Thundershirts. Jaime and Parker are sporting the belted cow look. Ava likes the solid colors.
We got a couple of mini-couch beds from Costco. The kids, especially Beth, like the bolstered beds. Parker looks on at Stella’s inability to properly use the bed.
Yes, Kat. You are doing it properly.
We threw one of the beds on the landing, intending to take it upstairs. Gertie, who is a little shy, thought it was the perfect spot to hang out.
This past week was Beth’s thirteen and half birthday. We figure at this age, we’ll start celebrating twice a year.
Today is actually Stanley’s 9th birthday. He was much darker when we first got him. He’s such a sweet boy. He is king of the sovereign nation of 'Weluvustan'.
The weather was beautiful for a few days before this crazy heat wave hit. We enjoyed actually being about to sit out on the deck with the kids. Front to back is Stella, Nelly, Lotta, Kat, Stanley, Jaime, and Parker.
New boarders Kat and Lotta. I do believe I said in a previous post something about no new boarders. The sisters are both very sweet girls.
Beth loves to play ‘hall monitor’. Stella is wondering if she can pass without arousing the wrath of the ‘troll’.
A parting shot of the landing to the basement. That’s over 300 lbs of dog food, and 432 ft of bully sticks. If we’re ever quarantined to the house, at least the kids can eat and have treats.
