Well well well, here I finally am, updating things again. ‘Tis the season to be extra busy or something, right? Anyway, I know I’ve been gone, and you probably didn’t really notice (that’s okay with me), but I’m kinda back now. Today I’m ‘announcing’ that I plan to start a new feature here on the blog, which is basically updating on how training is going with the dogs. It’s probably going to focus more on Koshka, but since Krissie loves the training games too, she’ll be involved. Basically, my plan is to try to get some pictures of them while training, and maybe a video here and there, and keep somewhat of a record of how we are doing. Our training time is somewhat limited, what with being crippled up and all, but we manage to get some in. We certainly manage to get a fair amount of playtime in, which I think is probably more important than a lot of training.
For example, the dogs love to play bitey face with each other, and act like they are all vicious and such. Yeah, right.
“I have scary teeth!”
It’s especially fun to play these game on our bed! (Please ignore the mess that is our room.)
“I shall simply smother you!”
Luckily, they both know just how much the other can take, and we pretty much don’t have any actual fighting.
“Watch it, you dog you!”
Most of the time though, the cats are the ones who rule the bed, although Krissie finds her spot up there a lot. Koshka prefers to lay in front of the door where he can get a nice cool draft. Here’re the dogs playing with Hellboy.
“What do you want, chicken breath?”
Hellboy is the only cat who really plays with the dogs, although Tess likes to tease them, and Patches likes to taunt them.
“I wanna chew on you.”
The rest of the cats would prefer the dogs just leave them alone.
“Will you throw my toy for me?”
In other news, I bought collars for each of them, and I really really like them. Koshka got a nice wide blue collar to wear.
Pretty blue flames
Of course, Krissie needed a collar to show off what a diva she is.

Okay, enough for today. I just wanted to pop on and let everybody know I’m still around and kicking.
