Happy Birthday Theo

Today is Thelonious Dribble's designated b-day. Thompson, Diego-san and I wish him a very happy birthday...

Beggars Can Be Choosers

Didn't take Theo long to find a new favorite toy- it's a little faux burlap sack (filled with catnip of course). It kinda looks like a sack of potatoes and it's clearly not as explosive as a catnip filled dynamite stick but Theo has adapted quickly. Still I think I'll be good to my lil guy and replace the dynamite stick ASAP.

R.I.P. Dynamite

I had to throw away Theo's favorite toy, the dynamite filled catnip stick. I would hide the dynamite stick underneath all the other toys in the boyz's toy box, but inevitably Theo would dig it out. Unfortunately he ripped a hole in the side and the catnip was leaking out all over the place so I threw it away. Theo keeps looking for it though...

Hey Good Lookin'

I had a spontaneous contest yesterday. I called out, "Hey good lookin'" and Thompson was the first to look at me. I guess he won that contest.

This Looks Like a Good Spot

Bed? Who needs a bed when you can just plop yourself down anywhere to take a nap...

Theo has an interesting relationship with Diego-san. Sometimes I think his pestering of his older brother is all about challenging who is the alpha male in the house. Other times I think he just wants Diego to like him more by playing with him...

Message Received

I told Thompson I was planning on just taking it easy this weekend. He seemed to agree that was a fine idea.

Friday, June 18, 2010


I did not obey Diego-san's order yesterday. I did point out to him that if I do obey such orders he may be short of food and shelter some day soon.

Thursday with Diego-san

Diego-san has requested that I clear my schedule and spend the day with him. Stat.

Stunned Disbelief

I told Theo we were going to take a picture of him where he doesn't look totally stunned by something. This was our first attempt. I told him we'd try again later...

Diego-san: "Hey Thompson, I'll let you be in my dreams if you let me be in yours."

Thompson: "ZZZzzztzzztzzz."

No Nap

Went to the Twins baseball game so I didn't get to participate in the usual Sunday nap with the boyz. Diego-san was pretty riled up when I got home...

Black and Blue

Last night playing softball, I took a ground ball off the thumb on my right hand (note to self- it's easier to catch a softball with your gloved hand rather than your bare hand). My thumb turned all black and blue and is rather swollen. This meant that when I got home I couldn't pick Theo up like he likes. He also wasn't sure what to make of the new color of my thumb.

A Positive Negative

When I say Diego-san can be a shadowy figure, I don't mean that in a negative way. He's such a handsome boy no matter the light.

His Own Abilities

Thompson doesn't know anything about having tunnel vision but he does know a thing or two about being a tunnel sleeper (and one with multi color toes as well).

Fool Me Once

I've learned not to just throw my dirty clothes on the ground at night. That's because when I wake up in the morning and don't put on my glasses on the way to the shower, a pile of dirty clothes is pretty much indistinguishable from... And certain housemates don't appreciate getting stepped on.

Our Lil Puppy

Theo spent most of the weekend begging me for attention. He would sit on my lap for a while, kneading away, then he'd decide he needed to lick my arms. He'd jump down, get back up and head butt me. He'd get back down and weave around my legs. Previous evidence confirmed... I swear he has some puppy blood in him.

Last night I was lying on the living room sofa and it occurred to me something strange was going on- for the first time all weekend, Theo was nowhere in sight. So I got up and did a quick search through the house for him. I returned to the living room and this is what I saw... He had been underneath the pillow my head had been resting on. He hadn't made a peep so I guess I hadn't squished him too badly...

Peony Time

One of my favorite times of the year... the peonies are bloomin.

Saturday is as good a day as any to catch the sunrise with your best buddy.

Every Day is a New Day

I must say I truly admire Theo's wide eyed wonder to all things new and all things familiar in this world...

Chillin' with T

Thompson seems confident that everything has returned to normal so it's time to do some serious chillin'.

Wednesday, June 02, 2010


Although the hired help did a good job, Diego-san is happy his regular personal groomer and butler is back.

Dear Dear Dear Dear Dear Santa Fe

Got home from a brief jaunt to New Mexico. The boyz were pretty happy to see me and pretty determined to let me know it had been close to 24 hours since they had last been fed. I was really impressed with Santa Fe. It's a beautiful city with a wonderful art vibe. I told the boyz if we ever decide to move out there, they are going to have to learn how to become kowboyz...
