  1. @ Paige, that is a riot! Thanks for sharing it with us! That is so true for all of our little ones. My Lhasa has her own recliner in the living room. The process evolved over time, and before I knew it, she had her own pillows, blankie and cushions to climb to get up there.
    I don't dare even try to sit there if she happens to be in her bed under the piano. She looks at me like I have lost my senses.
    I apologize, of course, and move immediately, offering a treat for the injustice she has just endured.

  2. 2 requests for MindyCam

    Is it possible to post at least 1 photo a week of the pups, both to record their growth, and for those of us that can't always catch the live feed and want to see how they're doing?

    Also, I think it would be good to replace the "Off Air" picture of Mindy with a picture of the whole family!
