Standing Guard

There has been some talk about what to do with our wild animal when BH joins the family in August.

On the one hand, he's soft and cuddly:
On the other hand, he barks, jumps on people with no regard to propriety and often has smelly breath.

But if Gordon treats BH anything like Johanna's dog (Leroy) treats Maria... then I think we'll be just fine:
You might need to click on the photo to see better, but that's Leroy standing guard as Maria takes an impromptu snooze in her swing.

So I guess we'll keep the Wild Animal Snuggle Bug Protector in the family for the foreseeable future. But Gordon, one step out of line and you'll get a one way ticket to Papa Tom's house!
(I think he's getting the message... don't you?)


  1. I do hope he does get the message! But of course he loves Papa Tom's!

  2. OMG, look at the cute face. There is no way you can get rid of him. For barking, start spraying him in the face with a water bottle. Use the "sharp" spray, not the mist. Its a passive aggressive approach that is not harmful to the little guy. Its just water, but they hate it! I use that with Max. He barks once, I spray his face, and then he is silent.
