    Talking Farm Animals Hard at Work

    Because I'm busy avoiding working right now, I just had to share this photo of two of our four barn cats and the dog, Stella, hard at work-

    The orange tabby is our very fat kitty Harley, the grey is George, and obviously the dog is the one and only Stella the dog. Aren't they busy little critters??

    I love that the dog is using a pillow! My lab/golden mix is curled up on my bed right now. Poor thing had a hard day eating breakfast!

    She routinely uses a pillow, including mine at home!!! She's lucky it is only her and I in the bed. What would she do if we had to SHARE IT!!!!

    She'd kick you off, of course. There's not room in town for the both of you.

    My labrador, he who once upon a time before living here LIVED OUTSIDE, has now figured out the use of pillows and rearranges them to his benefit.

    I think it's pretty mean that the cats don't have pillows too.

    Honestly, they look like you kept them up too long and finally crashed.

    Great photo. Reminds me of my barn-now-housecat who enforces the alarm in the morning (walks on our heads) and once we're out of bed and heading out for chores, where can he be found? Still in the bed. He's done his significant work for the day.

    I wish I could say that they were all VERY busy that day (could be true for George, he hunts quite a bit, and Stella most likely was running around like a maniac, as usual...buuut that's pretty much how you always find Harley.), but I have a whole other set of photos of something very similar to that, and I have various pictures of various animals snuggled up in various locations (including Stella and George sprawled under a car on a hot day...we always look before we drive away). My kids are lazy and over fed, what can I say?
