So, here's my night so far (I know, how exciting, huh?)
As soon as I got home and let the dogs outside, all I hear is "hello? hello? hello? hello?"
So I say "Hold on Tob, I'm coming, give me a second will ya?" (hoping he doesn't pick that phrase up)
He continues with "hello? hello? hello?" until I make it to his cage to let him out.
He immediately gives me a kiss and a "ohhhhh" (I'm wearing a red shirt and he LOVES red). I kiss him back (actually about a 100 times) and sit and scratch his head as we walk in to the bedroom.
He sits on the bed while I change and as soon as I turn my back he runs across the bed to the headboard which he then tries to chew on. I catch him just in time.
I tell him "no chew" and he innocently looks up at me out of the corner of his eye and scratches his head with his big ol foot.
I go back in to the closet (again!) but decide to peek out and see what he's doing. Yup, he's back to the headboard again.
We repeat the "no chew" and innocent look thing about 5 times before I manage to change out of my work clothes. Ugh!
Then it's time to go make dinner...well, Toby doesn't want to get off my arm and makes pathetic baby noises when I set him on his playstand so he can watch me make dinner.
He starts dancing back & forth while I'm cooking.
Hubby calls...I put him on speaker phone so Toby can hear him talk...(yeah, we're geeks & need to get a life)
Dinner's done & I bring him to the table so we can eat. You see, we eat dinner together at the same table. Yes, that would freak some people out and they would say "ewwww" but oh well...
He looks at his plate, ignores it and slowly walks to my plate and steals a carrot. Thief!
He makes an absolute MESS at dinner time & it's a pain in the butt to clean up. Again, oh well.
This is all in the first half hour of being home!
So what's my point to all this rambling??? He's an awesome buddy who I can't imagine not having in my life BUT he's loud, messy, stubborn, persistant, destructive & demanding!
He's also loving, affectionate, beautiful & a honor to have in my family.
