    Bed Hog.

    Recently I bought the hooligans a new bed. They used to have a blue one that Frieda and Jimmy bought for them, but the Yorkie wouldn't quit behaving inappropriately with it, so I tossed it. You just can't unsee some things. Even Frieda used to gasp in shock and say, "You're a naughty fraulein! That is very unladylike!" Tasha was…

    Sophie loves the Yorkie. And the Yorkie loves her back. Sophie also loves Tasha. And Tasha loves her back. Yorkie love can be a little persistant sometimes… But Tasha love comes at you in all at once… (I wouldn't do that if I were you…)

    I used to think I was more of a dog person, but lately I'm starting to think I'm a cat lover. Tilly has been visiting since Bre has been on Christmas break, and I tell you, every time I see this little sweety, I feel happy. When I say, "Hi Tills!" she actually meows in answer. It's the weirdest thing.…
