day one - I am challenged
Meet two of my room mates, Moses and Lizzie. My brother, Pete, is definitely the alpha dog in the house. What he says goes and the pups, well they jump to. Sunday when I arrived from Birmingham, cat in hand - Pete was out. So Tony stayed in his kennel away from the pups. Over the course of the afternoon - Moses would challenge me. He would get up from his bed, and bark at me in this questioning tone. Almost as if "who are you and what have you done bringing a cat here?" I would follow the proper commands to get them to settle down but Mr. Moses - he was having NONE of that. He would pout and sit with his back to me. Then he would pick up the bed and sling it to the side to prove that he did NOT have to get in bed. Finally, I put my foot down and he begrudgingly settled down.
Every day since Sunday Moses has dueled me for position of second in command. So far the score is 3-0. But...I have an idea he is plotting new revenge to make me look bad - when I turned my back today, he commandered the recliner. I need to keep my eye on that bad boy.
Lizzie...she's just planning to be the BFF of whoever wins.
