Hazards of Working in the Den

Lapdog and laptop compete for space.

Guess who wins?

Got time for an ear scratch?

The Queen is shocked she has to share her couch with a human.

    Hee! Hee! Guys – tell your human that at least you don’t leave crusty drool marks all over the laptop screen! My human had to go to Officeworld yesterday to find a special cleaner that would get it off!! 🙂

    Big Carl has taken to just sitting on my laptop

    Sharing a couch with humans is not that bad, as you can get lots of tummy rubs.

    I can’t blame the Queen for her shock. She is the Queen, after all! Did she get an ear scratch out of the deal?

    I am sure there is enough attention for the lapdog and for the laptop!

    That is one serious look of reproach Rusty is giving the hu-dad!

    Mom has the same problem with Louie. He is such a Momma’s boy…

    The lapdog always wins!

  15. Mike Criss on July 30, 2010 at 9:53 am

    Nothing like Sibe hair on the keyboard!

  16. Mimi & CC Cabana on July 30, 2010 at 9:45 am

    It would be funny if you were surfing “MySpace” while working in the den!

  17. Kira The BeaWootiful on July 30, 2010 at 8:27 am

    Wooos! Poor Queen Natasha, an evil eye might get that human off of your couch! If that computer is bothering me, I just bark it it till Mom leaves it alone and does something fur me.

    I never doubted Rusty’s powers at all! At least he’s more subtle about it than Morgan. She just sticks her whole head around in front of the computer screen! I think you are very lucky that Queen Natasha lets you share her house, and highly privileged to be on her sofa!

  19. The OP Pack on July 30, 2010 at 7:49 am

    If looks could kill . . .

    Don’t you love it when you have just typed something really important and all of a sudden a furry head comes along and hits either the mouse or the laptop and somehow manages to make it all disappear?

  20. Cheyenne Millie on July 30, 2010 at 3:48 am

    It is difficult to share mom with the computer! Sandusky manages to do so! Cute Queen!!

  21. Wild Dingo on July 30, 2010 at 3:41 am

    did you pay the queen property tax to sit there?

  22. Priscilla on July 30, 2010 at 1:25 am

    Um…did the laptop win??
