It is always interesting to see the cats mirror the dogs (or was this the other way around?) I don’t know if Lulu was there first or Nine.
I am used to the dogs mirroring the position of each other. Especially these two.
Do you mirror your siblings?
What kind of mischief did you get into today?
Come on Louise, let’s play!
When you have a dark dog and a light dog, getting the right camera exposure is really hard. Sofie is on my lap on the couch and Louise is on the floor. Yes, those are my piggy pajamas she has her head on (bottom right corner); they are purple. The caption should probably read something more like: “This is my Mommy, so go away!” which seems to be a constant lap battle around here. – 12.16.12
Memories: On a hot summer day, in 2014, Louise’s boyfriend next door, Mojo, wasn’t home but they went over to swim with his baby sister Zelda instead. It was so much fun. Louise really wanted to play with Zelda’s toy but she would not go in the pool to get it. Louise doesn’t like to get wet (she hates rain too). Sofie, on the other hand, was brave and got all the way in. She loves to swim but has trouble with puppies. That day swimming won over puppy fear.
The three of them all pointing in different directions made me think about that scene from The Wizard of Oz where Dorothy meets the Scarecrow and doesn’t know which way to go:
Dorothy: Now which way do we go?
Scarecrow: Pardon me. That way is a very nice way…[pointing]
Dorothy: Who said that?
[Toto barks at the Scarecrow]
Dorothy: Don’t be silly, Toto. Scarecrows don’t talk!
Scarecrow: It’s pleasant down that way too!…[pointing in another direction]
Dorothy: That’s funny. Wasn’t he pointing the other way?
Scarecrow: Of course, people do go both ways [pointing in both directions] That’s the trouble. I can’t make up my mind. I haven’t got a brain. Only straw.
Dorothy: How can you talk if you haven’t got a brain?
The Scarecrow: I don’t know. But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking, don’t they?
Dorothy: Yes, I guess you’re right.
