Last night, Sebastian was snuggling in bed with us. He’s definitely the most spoiled, but only because we can’t trust either of the other two to not pee in the bed.
So anyway, I got after Chris for messing with Sebastian when it was obvious he was tired. The last straw was when he dragged Sebastian up from by our legs to snuggle with him.
Chris responded, rather offended, that it was his dog. I said so what. Then he said Sebastian didn’t mind, that Sebastian loved him.
Then he asks Sebastian, who was at his side, “Sebastian, who do you love better? Sit by whoever you love most.” I am guessing he expected Sebastian to stay put and then he could do the Nelson-from-The-Simpsons “NYAH-HAH.”
Instead, AS IF ON CUE, Sebastian GOT UP and WALKED OVER TO ME. And then he planted his butt down on the bed. And then he looked back at Chris. I about died laughing.
Then Chris refused to talk to either of us. :D
Also, last night I took Sebastian for a jog on the beach and was able to LET HIM OFF THE LEASH. This is a first. I waited until we were away from a road entry to make sure he would be good, and he was. I was so proud, and it’s such a nice way to run – no tugging on the leash, no yelling at him to come – just a gentle, “C’mon!” if he starts to fall behind. Mostly, though, he just trotted along beside/behind me. It was very cute.
Also, last night, Kitten got up on the roof and cried and cried. That cat! She’s very cute, though. She came in the house and poked around last night, and that’s so cute to watch. And she’s much better with dogs than she used to be. Yay!
Also, I got Chris a fish for Christmas… a couple of months ago. A betta. This is because he used to have a betta fish, Buddy (the dog was named after him, so his real name is Buddy II), that was the best fish ever and would jump out of the water for his food. I always assumed that was a bit of an exaggeration.
But Chris trained the new fish, Buddy III, within a few days
to jump out of the water for his food. Chris is in Texas right now so I fed the fish this morning. It was so funny! He ate it right off my finger, which was hovering OVER the water. He got one on the first try, but missed on the other two bits of food, so he got my finger instead. A betta bite! Ha, it was so cute!
