in hiding

Can you see me? I love it here. It's Tad's crate, and it sits in the kitchen in direct sunlight.
Since T-Pole has some "naughty, bad dog" tricks, Motch is taking no chances. It's a new rule that came into effect when he moved in: when the last person leaves for the day, Tad goes to jail because Motch doesn't want any puddles and droppings in the house. (She says to thank you, Fleas Gang, for being concerned that I don't pick up his bad habits.) Tad doesn't think it's so bad to get locked up because he gets a carrot --- and then he doesn't howl.

But when he is free, it's my turn! I like it in here! Sometimes Fig and Tad are a bit too much for me, and I like my space. Before they came, I was alone for most of the day, and I liked it that way. So when I get the chance, I slip inside and enjoy the quiet and solitude.

Pretty perceptive on the part of Petra Pot Pie, wouldn't you say?

Did you know that Tad called you um PUDGY in his most recent post?? I think you look pretty good, and I know fat, I live with Tanner!

Hi, Petra!
I understand you. When my cousins come to visit me, I enjoy to play with them... for a while and then I like to have my own space!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

I have my own space to Petra though sometimes my sissies rudely interrupt my peace and quiet.

A little peace and quiet in the sun, what could be better! You look completely adorable snuggled up in there Petra.

You can't beat the sun my friend...I love it. Not sure I'd like sitting in prision tho'. And you definitely need to have a bark w/ Taddy on that PUDGE comment!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Alone time is always something that should be treasured, no matter where you go for it. Do you find carrot bits in that box thingy?

Bae Bae said...

So do you get carrot when you go in there too?

Hey Petra it's Flash. I like going in my kennel or even peanuts to get away from him. It is nice to have a place to go.

Petra, we just love that spot you have when the cage is free for you. Plus with plenty of sunshine it's a great spot. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful day.
