Last night my furnace switched off before the house was up to temperature, and when I checked the breaker, it had tripped and the entire panel was hot. AIEEE! Not wanting to burn down the whole building, I left the breaker off and called maintenance this morning. After much trouble-shooting, it turned out that the problem was with the 1960s era breaker box.

So I spent the day freezing (and starving!) while electricians tried replacing wiring and old breakers. But the panel still kept overheating, so they finally pulled it and replaced the whole thing.

Thomas was a very good boy while a bunch of total strangers set up camp and worked in the dining room. He schmoozed when they came over to say hi, but the rest of the time he hung out on his tuffet and supervised.

Doesn’t he look sweet? You’d never guess that he stole an entire stick of butter and ate the whole thing, paper wrapper and all.

When you interrupt your dog’s meditation to ask him how he can be so damn cute.

Mani-pedi Time

Mani-pedi Time

Thomas hates nail trims with the heat of a thousand suns. The first time I tried ro cut them, he totally freaked out and growled at me.

Mani-pedis still aren’t his favorite thing, but as long as he’s distracted with peanut butter, he’s mostly cooperative.

I think we can both live with that.

I love how he has to carefully weigh all the options and outcomes, before deciding to bring me his stuffy. He wants to play tug, but he knows that if I win, I’ll throw it and make him fetch it and bring it back before the tug game can continue. Is it worth it? Yes, it is!

House Rules

Nice try, Thomas.

Someone in one of my dog groups asked what everyone’s house rules were. There were lots of detailed lists about not begging, being crate trained, and not getting on the furniture.

Mine are pretty simple:
1. Don’t eat the cats
2. Potty outside
3. Entertain me

That’s about it. We do other things, but the rest is all gravy.

Sweetest Boy

Watching TV

Best, Best Boy

I was sitting, watching TV, and then Thomas did this and I died of cute. I can’t even with this dog.

Baby Bear

Biscuit

I gave up trying to encourage Thomas to nap somewhere else, during the day, so I put one of his beds on top of the ottoman. He’s going to sleep there regardless, so he may as well be comfortable. Plus that’s one less thing on the floor for me to trip over.

Today was a lazy day. I finished season one of the Doctor Who reboot. Now for season two!

Food Bowl Hockey 

This is Thomas’ other favorite game. He plays it every evening, until the noise starts to annoy me and I take away his bowl.
