When I was sick with the flu, Lou and Tiger-lily gave me cuddles to help me feel better. Animals are the best!
Yes this is what happens when Lou goes crazy and decides he wants to jump on and play with the cat. As you can image Tiger-lily who is ten does not appreciate this behaviour, and hisses and swipes at him. This sends Lucifer into a crazy barking maniac, and he is put outside.
Usually there is some barking and hissing exchanged through the glass, but after a minute or two Lou goes into sulking mode. He will sitting staring at the cat with his bring brown eyes pleading to get let back in.
The funny thing is the cat is the only one of us he’ll listen to. She is his favourite. Tiger still remembers our old quiet beagle who was her best friend, so hasn’t fully adjusted to a crazy young beagle. She loves Lou even when he goes crazy, she just doesn’t trust him yet. And who could blame her.
This is Lou’s first coat. As it is winter and he had been snuggling up to us trying to get warm we thought, its worth a try seeing if he would wear a coat.
To start with he seemed to enjoy it, but I think it was because he was distracted trying to get my mums food. About 15mins into wearing it, he took himself into the lounge room where he tried to wrestle his way out. He was rolling around, biting and chewing at it. Doing anything to pull it off so he could chew it to pieces.
So now the coat is put away till he is a little older and we are getting lots of cuddles and of course kisses.
So would you like a new way to sit on your leather couch then Lou will show you how.
First don’t sit the boring old way, with your bum on the seat. No avoid that all together and climb onto the top of the seat back.
That’s perfect. Now spread your legs on either side of the seat back and lie on your stomach.
Now you are in the perfect position to bark at anything outside the window, or just chew away at those wooden blinds.
As recommended by Lou the beagle
Lou prefers to be on tables than the floor, so nothing is safe from this “kangaroo” dog. So if you leave it lower than 1m, he’s sure to steal it.
Favourites are slippers, books, papers, tissues and clothing. The slippers he will happily take off your feet. Tissues from your pocket, or while trying to blow your nose and clothes while you are still wearing them. Today for example, he stole two tissues, which are now ripped up and spread around the lounge room. He stole about 5 pillows throughout the day. He broke 2 lots of blinds, stole slippers off my feet and tried to eat my jumper off me. You can’t help to forgive him though as he always gives you kisses and cuddles after, so its hard to stay mad at him for long.
This is when Lou goes crazy. He seems good, goes crazy and ends up on his rope.
