Today's (Dog Owner's) Laugh

After I teach Koko to read, I'm going to hang this on the lower part of the refrigerator.

Comfortable Much? or Letting Sleeping Dog Lie

When I moved into my house, I intended to get a sofa, but in the meantime put my futon in its place. Then I got Koko. The futon became hers. It started with her sleeping on it (see the sheet and little blanket? vain attempt to keep it somewhat clean.)

Next it was her sitting on the top of it to stare out the window and wait for me when I leave the house. Now it's just devolved into her sleeping on the mooshed down part. I've given up trying to keep it "fixed" and suitable for human habitation. The only way to get it back into any sort of shape would be to lay it flat and pound on it. I've put the idea of buying a sofa on hold for now. I guess if this is the worst Koko does, I should be pretty grateful!

Yes, Yes, I Believe It IS Spring

How do I know? I had on a pair of shorts for the first time this year. Exciting I know! And I didn't even have to wait until the middle of the day. Nope, I put those suckers on at 8 o'clock this morning. Even went over to the dog park in them too! Sorry there is no picture, but the camera couldn't handle the glare coming off of my fish-belly-white legs.
