Games We Play

An all time favorite game, Qannik is standing in the dog door entrance and not letting Kodiak in.  Qannik has just realized that I am standing on the front porch above him taking the picture.

    That looks like a really fun game. Sometimes I sit between the couch and the loveseat and then Steve won’t walk past me. He just barks and woos and begs for Mom to come save him.

    Foiled again! Meeka likes to be the troll sometimes. I just step on him if he won’t move. He makes lots of noise but that’s okay.

    Wow, that sounds awfully familiar. I like to lay on our ramp to the doggie door and block the entire way. None of the other dogs will walk around me. Not that they would fit, but I think it’s my overwhelming Malagal personality that stops them. My baby Khady is now doing the same thing. Only she’s too small to block the whole ramp. She’s learning though!

    Oh, Qannik – woo are just like me, I like to block the door too and I like to block the water bowl as well.

    Naughty, Naughty Qannik.

    That looks like something that Salvador would have done to me.

    Poor Kodiak… Qannik a big meanie?

    We’d love to see photos of your doggy house up close!
