Corner view: From where I'm sitting...
From where I'm sitting, we are outnumbered by toddlers. There's this girl, who spends half the time chewing on my favorite slippers and the other half doing speed laps between the wading pool, the bed (ours!!), and the large holes she's digging in the back yard. A recipe for disaster.

This is Mathilda's hole. Heelers tend to like to sleep in tight holes. She chose hers in the first 24 hours (it was a shoe basket) and hasn't left it since. None of the other three will do - it has to be this one, second from the left, third from the right. This is where you'll find her when I'm working in the studio.
And then there's this joker, our resident serial killer. We should have called her Dexter. Sawyer is now the most mature of the bunch, but she's still crazy. She is a cat after all. And she thinks the dog is hers to toy with when she's not out disposing of bodies in the dark of the night.

As for the Q...no, we did not teach her to wear her hat like this. She just flipped it around after we told her she had to wear it.
Kids these days, with their rock and roll and their hats on backwards. I swear.

And then there's this.
"Nothing, Mrs. Larkin. I was just...adjusting the dog's collar. Yeah."
Murderous little feline that she is.

Stop by Jane's place in Spain for more corner views from around the world.

each picture is laugh out loud funny.
Oh Mrs. Larkin! If the antics of Miss Qui Qui were not enough, how can you possibly pack more impish cuteness into your Denver house, but now a thriving saga between a dog and a cat....oh my.....I will sat tuned.

I have brought my gathered family here during sad days for a good refreshing chuckle.

great action shots of critter on critter. (and i don't mean your husband and child!) how can you sit? with so much action going on.

That is so funny, the kitty and the doggie! Sometimes they can be the best of friends. My orange boy kitty plays for hours with my two Westies.
I do believe they actually enjoy it.

What are you feeding Sawyer? LOL. She has filled out so much, I barely recognized her! I wish you had named her Dexter indeed. Q as always looks adorable, your little dog still looks very fragile but it might be her structure and long features. The cat, well as a cat lover I think she is adorable and a real pistol. I think of the two animals she is the perfect companion to the Q. They are both wicked beautiful and energetic.

My youngest always wears her hat backwards as well... it suits her that way.

Beautiful as usual.
