Bizarre Love Triangle

Dorrie wants to play with Alvy. Alvy wants to play with Mr. Bonkers. Mr. Bonkers wants to be left the hell alone.

Still, assimilation is going even better than I'd hoped. Everyone is being very decent to each other.

Great photo, the way they're all sort of eyeing each other to make sure nobody moves, while pretending to nap.

Did I ever make you visit Goya's Don Manuel Osorio at the Met? The little boy in the fabulous red suit, all unaware of the savage tensions among the animals at his feet?

They're like endless Saturday morning cartoons, miss t.

And nbm, you haven't steered me to it but I've loved that painting a long time, since I was a kid. Probably one of the subliminal reasons I collect pets.

They're all sprawled out like it was hot when you took that picture. Cute.

It was hot. Even on a good day and with the oven off, that kitchen's the hottest room in the house.

Now I'm looking forward to winter shots of them all snuggling. Or romping in the snow.

Detente! They'll all be best buddies yet. I agree with Kaethe; they'll be snuggling as soon as it gets cold.

Cute picture! Mr. Bonkers’ thinking, “Wait a minute, that dog has a BED”, and Alvy is in the midst of those leg exercises I hate. You know, the ones that work that inner thigh.

And I’m not even going to try to figure out what Dorrie is thinking but based on my past experience with dogs I’m going to bet it has something to do with food.

And not that I am encouraging you or anything, but you know, there is quite a bit more room on that floor for more critters....

You know you're not the only one who thinks that, lynn...

And yes, I do think there will be snuggling. Alvy's already come and hung out on the bed with everyone a few times. Truth to tell, he seems to like the other critters more than he likes us these days.
