Still life with Tommy

Don't forget, you have until Thursday at 5 eastern to enter to win a copy of Nancy Hunter's debut historical novel Taste of Liberty!

And now, an update on Tommy, or should we call him, the Stair Master! As of yesterday, he has now conquered all staircases, inside and out (yes, even those slick wooden ones on the deck).

The only thing he's unsure about are slick floors like the kitchen. It's pretty hilarious, feeding the cat in the middle of the kitchen floor, and Tommy wants so badly to taste that yummy cat food, but he can't...quite...reach if he insists on leaving one toe on the carpet. The cat just eats, smugly.

This morning I finally got him to hold still enough to take two pictures that actually show what he looks like:

That's grass stuck to the corner of his mouth. He'd just been rolling around on his back like a nutball.

Here he's waiting to come inside--from the deck!!

Tommy has three applications to adopt him so far, but the process is a little slowed by the fact that the volunteers who do the home visits are on vacation, so he might be with us another week. He's a really good dog, so we don't mind.

Tommy looks as sweet as can be! :) Brave boy to master those stairs!...I can only imagine the thoughts going through the cat's head...they are so smug aren't they! Good luck with the adoptions...Tommy was lucky to have spent time in a caring home like yours! :)
