Pets At Home

Life on the farm has been busy ever since winter finally ended. The household pets, however, are still spending most of their days lounging comfortably - like Fergus, Snoozey and Bramble in this photo:

The cats stay indoors but the dogs love to go outside into their fenced yard:

And they all enjoy the kitchen floor pillows:

Except that Bramble began peeing on the floor pillows. I kept cleaning them and spraying them with enzyme deodorizer but it didn't stop him. I then put a litter box in the corner. Then I realized that I'd need a partition to keep the dogs out of it. Alas, none of that stopped Bramble and I began to remove the floor pillows, one at a time, as they got peed on. They were reduced to only since this photo was taken:

PeeWee has made a rather spectacular recovery from his stroke and is once again playful and doing his happy dance:

This is Bramble, the culprit depriving the other animals of their floor pillows. Does he look guilty? He should:

For a little old dog who is nearly deaf and blind, and has survived a vicious attack by a big dog, a corneal ulcer and a major stroke, PeeWee is doing remarkably well:

Snoozey is a major lover of floor pillows. Notice that by the time this photo was taken, there was only one left - and Snoozey claimed it:

Upstairs in the bedroom, Seamus watches over little PeeWee:

And the other three dogs sleep atop the bed where it's extra soft:

All in all, it's been a good summer so far for the household pets:

Do you suppose that Bramble is asking Clover to move so he can pee on that pillow?
