    I think I would fit right in with your routine. Well except I also like to lay on the couch and look out the window in the mornings too. It also gives me a good vantage point to see if my breakfast is being served.

    Ammy is our referee. I guess every pack has to have one.

    You wait until the sun is up?? That explains why you’re not catching any bunnies.

    That was the best sports event I’ve seen in my entire life!! Loved it! So who won? I wasn’t keeping track of who accumulated points.

    Thundering Herd!

    I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed looking at these pictures. You’re all having so much fun! My favorite is the 5th one down, with Qannik’s big blue eyes staring up at your human. That’s too funny!

    Hope you all have a grrrrEAT weekend!

    Love the pics – look similiar to my house – Sweetie and MJ get up and start chasing each other around the house till they end up on my bed jumping around – which wakes the king (woodrow)who puts a stop to all the nonsense – at which point they all lay down till it is feeding time
