Yesterday was Jersey's 3 week birthday. Technically she is like two months and 3 weeks old, but I am counting her "birthday" as the day we got her. Yes, she was alive for two months prior, but apparently just barely. So, I had great plans to take updated pictures for this event. Those plans went up in smoke when I woke up still sick and too drugged/exhausted/congested to go to work. So after emailing work to let them know, I went back to my drug induced sleep. Too bad work didn't get the email. Hilarity ensued, but that is a story for a different day as I don't feel like typing it all out.
Instead, I have some other Jersey pics for you. B is also a star in these. You see, when we first got Jersey her crate was actually the cat carrier. It was the perfect size for her. However, B seeing a long future and, more importantly, long legs on Jersey, thought a bigger, adjustable crate would be better. And so he found one.
Jersey wasn't sure of the new crate. B, being the good parent, decided to show her that it was a fun and comfortable place to be:
Don't they look comfortable in there? Well, one of them looks sad. I will let you decide which one.
And, if you are in a cage with your dog, you should totally call to your other animals to come see you and gauge their reactions to you being treated like an "animal":
Eventually one animal will come to check you out:
Then you can entice him to come closer by wiggling your finger:
Or sticking a toy banana out while your wife yells "HAVE A BANANA!":
Soon after your puppy will realize the cage is nice and comfy and her place:
Even if you have to talk her into it:
And even if she blends into the dog bed:
B is a good parent and a good sport. Also? This was totally his idea. I just made him sit in there a bit longer so I could grab the camera.
As for Jersey? She is back in the cat carrier. She likes small spaces.
And small cats.
But that is another story.
