Food, water, water, food
Who will come?
For sure not to an empty bowl.
Don't worry my two are waiting out of camera sight!. .Then after a nice meal comes a good nap!
This is Adi, our fourteen-year-old Beagle dog. She was Karen's until a move to an apartment that didn't allow beagles.
Why no beagles? Because they howl and bark, both really loud. Adi knows how to do these things but she won't unless it is for me when I ask. Or when she is very hungry and we have just come back from an outing.
This is Katrin, our nine-year-old Toy Poodle. Katrin came to us when her mistress died.
She was a little bit naughty when we first got her but mostly she has learned the rules of the Jim House.
These rules involve bathroom habits, licking people, eating chocolate candy she can find around or hidden, dumping garbage pails and ladies' purses to rummage, and climbing onto the furniture. Oh yes, she barks, very loudly.
Katrin still barks but not nearly as much as when we got her.
Both dogs have chips in case they would get lost or stolen. Who would steal nice dogs like these? Well, just like we tell the kids, they are the kind people want to steal. The nice kind.

You might like to post your own 'Things in a Row.'.- - - - - - - -.And now for my Thursday Two Questions: (See Thursday Two Questions by Self Sagacity for more reading. You could also make your own by checking in at this link.)..Last week we answered questions about using our 'motorcycle experiences vacation desires' from which I am really hoping that those who don't see a vacation in the near offing that one might be possible. Just a little get-away to the city next would be a refreshment. The bonus question was about having your relatives riding motorcycles and did your worry. Several would like to ride or ride again and just a few worried.
My Two Questions for this week:
1. 1) What is your favorite pet? and Why? (Question was borrowed from Self Sagacity above who got it from Judy Walker--check the link above for more.)
I am glad you got to meet Adi and Katrin. Dogs are my favorite pet. Adi is a therapy dog but she is old and hard of hearing now. It would be too hard on her now to visit assisted living homes like we used to do.
We do have a cat, Amber. She is also given to us by Karen when she moved overseas. Amber is nineteen years old. I do like cats.
2. If you have a pet, what does your pet eat?
Our dogs eat dry food all the time and also a VERY FEW table scraps. We are getting them the Senior bits from various pet food makers.
Bonus Question: Does any of your pets sleep in bed with you?
Mrs Jim decided before we were married that it was silly to have a dog sleeping in bed with her. That was fine with me because I like all the bed I can get. I did adapt my sleeping habits enough for Mrs. Jim to find room in bed with me. That was a good thing.
Adi has beds in our bedroom and in the living room. She sleeps a lot in her beds and on the floor. Mostly wherever we are. Katrin only has beds (two) in the bedroom. She loves to sleep on the Persian rug under the breakfast room table. We lock them in our bedroom when we go to bed, putting a baby gate in the door to keep them from roaming the house..
