Window Dressing

The boys have a window in the bathroom without a screen that they can use to jump into and out of their kennel. Tanji and Vladi think this is great fun, and use the window opening often during the day. At night we close that window and open a screened window to try to keep out the large numbers of moths that come to visit. Last week when we went to brush our teeth we noticed that Vladi had learned a new trick, perching on the tiny outer windowsill...

Vladi is sitting outside the window,
staring at nothing, and happy as can be.
That's our boy!

Are you guys laughing at me?

Someone is approaching from the inside,
and Vladi looks a little annoyed...

Its Tanji wanting to play too.

Vladi doesn't want company and jumps down,
but its just a little while later and...

Vladi is back on his new perch.

Grading Buddies

We're is the middle of summer school and have a lot of papers to grade. Grading always goes "easier" if you have a grading buddy helping. Vladi likes watching the pen move back and forth...

Discussing the grading together.

Vladi is ready to go for his post-grading walkies.

Uschi Moves

Uschi was "jogging" down a trail,
when he came up upon Vladi.

Whose attention was gained.

Uschi did a stutter-step/change of speed,

and accelerated past Vladi,

who took up pursuit, but

Uschi was gone.

Gazing into some tall grass.
