Here's Paco the Wonder Dog, in all his glory:
So bery sleepy, Mom. Let sleepin' dog lie, K?
Another couch picture - both cats were near me, and you can see that Kip was displeased when Paco decided to join the group.
Kip was so mad he wouldn't even glare at me...but this picture made me laugh because you can see Paco trying to decide if he could pounce and make Kip move so he'd be closer to me, or if he'd get in trouble for attacking the cat.
Paco is a social eater, so we have dishes of food in the family room and in my office. I used to keep the food in the kitchen, but seeing as I don't spend a lot of time in that room, he was practically starving.
Sigh...Paco growls when he eats, and it's especially loud if a cat walks by. I keep telling him that no one wants his food, but he goes a little crazy - Kip wandered over and Paco actually snapped at him, which meant that he was removed from his food.
I put Paco in his crate for a time out, and walked back to see Kip eating Paco's food! Son of a bitch, the dog was right...they DO want his food! Sorry for doubting you, Paco.
I call this next set our vet pics. Because of his allergies, we seem to be at the vet every month, so I usually whip out my phone and take a picture while we're waiting for the vet to come into the exam room. It all started with this shot, taken by a vet tech:
This picture is my favorite of Paco and me. He was nervous and jumped on my lap, and the vet tech thought it was cute so she took the picture. This was about four years ago.
He looks like he's smiling, but this is his nervous face.
Trying to jump on my lap - he was pretty sick and didn't quite make it, so we just hung out like this for a while.
I bery nerbous Mom. Not lik dis place.
At this visit, he backed himself up between my legs, with his body mostly under the chair.
I will say that once the exam and shots are over with, and treats and Cheez Wiz are given, Paco turns into a much happier dog. I just wish we didn't have to go so often, but this is why:
Poor sick puppy - bony body, raw, allergy-red skin. This was about eight weeks ago and he's doing much better; not 100%, but we're working on it.
I thought I had more pictures of Paco, but it's hard to get them because he's my little shadow. Even when he's outside sunning himself, the instant I try to take his picture, zzzziiiiiippppppp - suddenly he's glued to my side:
Wut we doin, Mom? Yu need help? I rite heer for yu.
Being a blog dog means he knows how to pose for selfies pretty well!
Have a great weekend!
