Cats and Dogs
Boo terrorizes the dog. He hides on chairs and swipes at her tail when she walks by. He hides behind corners and when she comes into the room, leaps out and scares her. He wants to play so jumps at her back, her head...Dreamer puts up with a lot from that little guy. And usually with great tolerance and a put-upon air.
Last night he jumped on her head and she growled as if to say "Enough!"
But twice now she's done something so funny I have to share.
So she sat on him.
We laughed so hard, and Boo extricated himself from Dreamer's posterior and curled up on the dh's lap instead, completely unperturbed.
Night before last, I was up alone and so the entire love seat was free, and I was at one end of the couch and Boo on the other so the middle was free. I patted the seat and said "come up with mum" and she wagged her tail but no. Paced in front of the love seat but no. I mean there was TONS of space.
It is her passive-agressive way of asserting herself (jumping on one's head is SO childish and undignified, much better to sit on them instead). Boo was slightly alarmed, and I had to lift up Dreamer's butt so he could get out, but he got the choice seat of my lap at the end of it.
Now I'm off to hit word count for today. Spring break is next week so I know I won't be getting a lot done.
