Just stumbled across this photo of our fur child. He doesn't just much a look in these days, but Lyon is a very family friendly chap especially with Iris taking an active interest in him which at times are lovely and other times not so, you can see why Lyon is weary of children. But I can see how much fun they all have and will have.
Iris has been really interested in Lyon of late. She can pat gently and wants to touch nose and eyes (poor patient Lyon) the minute she joins him in his bed, he has gone, the dog bed is a favourite play area too.
I think we forget how far our mr Stinkle has come since we have had him in our lives. He is so good with Olive. Will now play fetch and loves chasing with her. Ignores Iris completely which is to be expected at this age. He loves toilet rolls. Will even stick his head through the door if one is ready. His other favourite toy is the native cabbage leaves for chasing with. We love you buddy.
A crisp walk with Olive in control of Lyon. She has became very assertive with telling Lyon what he should and shouldn't be doing. Meanwhile a little later around the park stated "mummy there is a pebble in my boot" so we stopped to shake it out and then Olive refused to put it back on, walking half way around the park in socks. She seems to take any opportunity to take her shoes off these days.
This has been happening more and more lately. Olive wanting to play games like 'chase' around the coffee table 'horse' ride on mummy's back (not a popular choice by mummy) and 'ball' with 'eyon' (it has taken Olive a very long time to use Lyon's name) We can see how much fun these two are going to have. Just need to work on Lyon listening to Olive!
We are back into climbing out the dog/ olive flap. She only came back inside for "pop pop" (popcorn) and then I found her sitting quietly with sidekick Lyon (or scabber) munching on her snack enjoying the great outdoors. I think we have outdoors kid on our hands, every chance she gets, she is out there.
Penny pink is a favorite this week as she wasn't posted out the dog flap. We have had more interest in the little door that is perfect for little olives to pop through. We often find a pile of toys on the doorstep too.
