cabin fever!

These rainy days have not been good for us. We do not like being cooped up in the house! Can't go for a walk, cant run around in the backyard, can't go to the dog!

So instead, Tyson is annoying us by bringing us his toys, dropping them in our laps, and waiting patiently (or not-so-patiently) for us to play with him. He is pacing in front of us (note: there is not much room for a 90 lb. dog between the couch and coffee table), stepping on our toes, and almost knocking the tv tray table over. He likes to drop his tennis balls under the table and then army crawl under and get them back, not caring what is in his way (feet, tray table, cat, etc.)

Or herd the ottoman. Yes, you heard right. We are herding the ottoman now. I guess its the only piece of furniture that he can push around. He wedges himself between the ottoman and the chair (usually to try to get a toy he lost under it) and then walks around it, herding it this way and that, until he has a good walking space in the middle of the living room.
This is problematic because I.....oh, I dont to put my feet on the ottoman?! troublesome, when your dog is using his whole body to move it away from the chair.

Who. knows. Grrr.

This is what you get with a herding dog!!!

Well, its off to make some chili. This cold rainy weather is permeating my bones!!!
