Were you planning to sit here, hu-dad?

    That Frankie is really fitting in there with the Herd, isn’t he? I bet that he’d “scooch” over for the hu-dad. “Scooch” is a word that both of our dogs have learned 🙂

    Of course he wasn’t! But it sure was nice of him to set you up with a glass of juice and a warm blankie!

    So glad Frankie is making himself totally at home. At least he didn’t take your iPod.

    We bet Frankie would let the hu-dad share that spot. Ciara steals Mom’s spot whenever she gets up.

    Hey Frankie, I like to steal dad’s spot on the couch too!

  6. Christina Pierce on November 30, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    We like sitting any place that has been warmed for us! Couch, bed, chaise, if its warm and you’re gone long enough, you’re spot will not be there either!

    That’s what Darwin does. Our saying is “move your feet lose your seat”. Usually as soon as you get up, Darwin will adjust herself and take your spot.

    Yep, Kari is right, possession IS 9/10ths of the law, so no point in fussing about it Hu-Dad. That is unless you are planning some lawless move!


  9. Kari on November 30, 2011 at 12:53 pm

    Its 9/10th of the law 🙂

    Stop on by for a visit

    Way to take over, Frankie!
    Play bows,

    Ummm, could you please pull that blanket up around my shoulders for me, hu-Dad?

  12. carolyn on November 30, 2011 at 9:58 am

    Awwww Frankie is so cute, I hope you let him stay there….

  13. Random Felines on November 30, 2011 at 9:31 am

    yep – possession is 9/10s of the the law…unless you can be picked up and moved like happens around here!! Hold your ground….

  14. Fiona and Abby the Hippobottomus on November 30, 2011 at 8:30 am

    Thus hu-dad can’t possibly make you move after you got yourself so COMFY! In our house, if you get up, or haven’t yet sat down, you have automatically relinquished your spot. Just saying…

    Is this your own “occupy the couch” movement, Frankie? I wonder if the rest of The Herd will join in…

  16. Wild Dingo on November 30, 2011 at 7:45 am

    pee ess woo: i love that you are “thick as thieves” with cheesewiz…

  17. Wild Dingo on November 30, 2011 at 7:44 am

    Frankie, I see you haven’t wasted any time settling in. Way to show the hu-dad you are right at home. Now tell me, did hu-dad cave and find you too irresistable to move or was he a beast and make you move?

  18. Khyra on November 30, 2011 at 6:36 am

    Woo khomfy yet Frankie?
