Weekend Guest

It occurred to me that, as photos of my children appear here and there, that you should have a glimpse of child #6 too. It's rare that I can get a photo of just Leo because he is dearly loved by all (notice the dorito-crusted fingers gripping him as he attends movie night in the playroom). In fact, I would venture to say that he is the favorite sibling, and perhaps the most obedient child we have. He therefore has the distinguished and ever so appropriate title of King Leo the Sixth.



He holds just about every priviledge the rest of the kids do. In addition, his bathroom is a full 2 acres. Another perk is that he's allowed the occasional overnight guest. He has friends of all ages, and his newest friend is Tooey the puppy (yes, pronounced just like it looks, "2-ee"). She was such a pleasant guest this weekend. Her owners had to go out of town, so we were trusted with her.



It's been two years since Leo was a puppy so we had to puppy-proof the house somewhat, getting dangerous kid-toys off the floor and such. We only had one scare when we couldn't find her anywhere, even after shouting her name repeatedly. The above picture shows where we found her, all nestled and sound asleep. The two chums completely wore themeselves out playing.

They've also inspired some fun new project ideas that I've ferociously sketched out over several pages of my idea book. And I've left you a hint to one of those projects here.



More on this tomorrow!

Haute Dog! I'm excited!

  1. I LOVE doggies! We have three and if we had more land (any maybe a bigger bed) we'd probably have more. Thanks for sharing yours and I hope your toe is still healing nicely.

  2. Leo is a very lucky member of your family. We have 3 dogs and they too have most priviledges allowed to the 2 legged in our home.

    Our neighbor has a dog who visits all the time, sometimes over night. We put a gate in the fence so they can play with each other all day. They come and go as they please. The dogs sleep very well at night becasue they play hard all day.

  4. I am thinking it will be some gorgeous dog collars. I have been working on some over here in Perth, ( Western Australia). By the way, life at yours seems lovely.
