Indoor Bird Watching

Hmm, is Sam really looking for birds? 

 Or maybe he's looking for some more packages to sniff and then use as a napping spot. 

Easter and the Peeps!

My niece and I love Peeps.  Any kind of Peeps.  Oh, her husband likes them too so I have to send her Peeps marked 'Dave - DO NOT TOUCH'  (she can share if she wants but sometimes he eats them and leaves her an empty Peeps container).  So I send her Peeps of all sorts - this year I found the purple Peeps - she used to love purple stuff but I'm not sure if she still does or not.  But that's OK.
 Well, this year, the Peeps just kept sitting on the counter waiting to be mailed and somehow, I'm still not sure how, the box was opened and we ate them.  Well, Sam and Millie sniffed them. Sam actually bit one and then ran away.  The only human in the house ate the rest of them.

Therefore, the only true connoisseur of Peeps in this house must be me.   AND I"M PROUD OF IT.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.....

Sam wants to get in the attic with Blake, my Heat & A/C guy.  So when Blake needs to go in the attic, I have to pull the bottom section of stairs up.  Otherwise Sam goes up the stairs - in a flash reserved for super  heros - and then, and only then proceeds to get scared and won't come out.  But as you can see, he believes in the 'If at first you don't succeed, try, try again'.  And boy, does he ever try.

Spring IS Here - We escaped the house for a bit!

See... they can behave when they are in close proximity to each other.   Actually, it's probably because it's the first time they've been out of the house in a while (escape's to the garage don't really count).
Here's Millie in her 'about to escape' spot.  It doesn't matter if the garage door is open or not.  She did this all winter.  It's funny because they never go outside through the garage.  That is a privilege reserved for ME.

Sam is Innocent ..... isn't he?

Just look at that face.  NO guilt in that face.

So why is Millie protecting her toy?
