Sunday Selfies Show & Tell

Lucy: Hi, and Happy New Year, friends! *wiggles* When last we met, Mom was going to take me to the Smart Pet store for a new sweater. That was great! So many people pet me while I was there! I got a really pretty sweater too, and it even fits me like it was made for me (but not made by Mom, BOL!). Then I found out I had to pose for a picture. I really don’t like getting my picture made.

Chia: C’mon Lucy, you can do this! I just got lots of pictures taken and it doesn’t hurt a bit. Give Mom a good picture and it’ll all be over and you can go back to doing nothing.

Lucy: *gulp* OK, I’ll try. But it’s hard to look happy like Xena does in her pictures when I’m doin’ something I don’t wanna do.

Lucy: There. I hope everyone can see my pretty new sweater. I’m done.

Mom: No you’re not, sweet girl. Chia photo bombed you.

Chia: I was just giving moral support.

Lucy: Are we done yet?

Chia: Yep, it’s my turn. First, you probably noticed I’m wearing my big girl panties. It’s been a long time since I’ve had to wear them.

I managed to get them off during the night and now there’s blood on the bedsheets and Dad’s underwear. I was laying up against him. Hmmm. I didn’t know that would happen. Xena! Are you back there photo bombing my picture?
So, what I really wanted to tell you is, I got another present, too. Mom decided I needed a new collar after she put my pretty pink collar on me and I made choking sounds, sorta like, “ghagrk.” I’m a big 1 1/2 years old now and I outgrew it. Off we went to the Smart Pet store!

Can you see it? Instead of a bow it has a pretty sunflower on it. And it’s not pink, yay! No, you can’t see it? Well, that’s ok, there’ll be plenty more pictures of me wearing it other days.

Xena: My turn! I got new stairs to be able to get on the bed without hopping up and down asking Mommy to pick me up. Riley’s bed is always on the side where the rug is, and the floor on Mommy’s side is too slippery for me to try to jump up. I wasn’t too sure about these stairs at first. But when treats suddenly appeared on them, I made it the whole way up to the top.

Now the trick is to get back down. Riley’s sleeping on his bed, so I can’t jump down that way. OK, I’m gonna try this…

OK, I think I can do this. One step at a time.

I’m doing it, Mommy!

Chia: Did you see me run up and down and back up the stairs, Mom? I’m so fast, just like the Flash! You probably missed it. That’s OK, I’ll do it again!

The next night….

Xena: Mommy, Mommy, Mommy lift me into bed Mommy.

Mommy: *sigh*

We are happy to join The Cat on My Head for Sunday Selfies.

  1. What a beautiful new sweater and a beautiful new collar. You all got some nice gifts. Mom might need to get stairs for Misty May. Treats sound like a good teaching tool. Thanks so much for hopping. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet

  2. What a fun Post! Lucy, your sweater is gorgeous! And we are not fond of the picture taking around here either. We used to have stairs by the bed for Sam and Bob (the before hairy slobbery sisters) They are in the basement and being used as a side table in the Man Cave, ready for whenever Cinnamon will need them. Chia, the flower on your collar is fabulishious! We hope you have a marvellously Happy Week!

  3. We just put some stairs in the bedroom for Shoko, Now that she finally understands they are for getting up on the bed, she loves them. Tyebe was using them to play on and hogging up the stairs so Shoko would wander away. Now that she gets them, they’re a piece of nip to her.

  4. Oooops I’m sorry about the accident.
    We had a step stool for Madi. I never thought she’d use it but she did…in fact the first time she realized it was for her I declare she turned around and gave me KITTY VERSION of “I love you”
    3 blinks with her eyes and I blinked back at her

    1. LOL! While that might be a good idea in theory, Miss BellaDharma, the reality is if there were 2 sets of stairs, and Chia didn’t want Xena on the bed, she would stand at the top and run between them, saying, “Rar rar, rar, rar.” Chia is fearless. At least they play well together every day.

        1. Chia is slowly, very slowly, learning manners. She just doesn’t have a lot of self-control yet. We’ll all keep working with her. Even our patient Lucy has started teaching her what is not acceptable.

  6. Aw, Lucy, we are with you in the don’t like pics being taken of us either…we might seem a bit braver, but look at our ears…BOL! Our Pipo would just hide his whole face, LOL!

    Nice sweater and we love that sunflower collar!

    Sorry you can’t jump up onto the bed that easily, Xena, are you that small?? Hmmm, now if Chia would move over a bit, you could use those handy steps.

    (Riley doesn’t get up there??)

    Happy New Year!

    1. Hi Benji and Dalton! It’s nice to know that I’m not the only one who doesn’t like having their picture taken. I’m glad you like my new sweater. I like Chia’s new collar, too. XOX Lucy
      Hi boys. I just have some, um, issues. I’m still trying to live up to being a BRAVE warrior princess, and it scares me to think my feet might slip when I try to jump on the bed. It’s no problem if I can get to it from the other side, but Riley’s bed is usually in the way. I’m not an acrobat like Chia who flies over top of him, BOL! Besides, I like Mommy to pick me up.


  7. Life With the gang! LOVE IT! you are all so precious and sweet and beatuiful and I was about to say we need steps like that but they might not fit Beau. besides he is not allowed on the bed. Lucy your sweater is perfect and fits you so well.. sorry for all the photos.

    1. Mom says these steps are made for smaller dogs, so Beau would need a set like our brother Andrew made out of an old desk that Mom picked up from the side of the road. Actually, Dad picked it up after Mom called him and said she would be right there waiting for him to come get it, BOL! Maybe you could find an old desk, Miss Sandra. XOXOX Chia, Xena and Lucy
