happy anniversary to me!

I can't believe it has been one year today since I started blogging. I wanted to post something special today to commemorate the occasion so I will leave you with a post about my favorite animals, nudge one & nudge two, my faithful loyal companions.
The way they act, you would think these two are sisters. They love each other very much, but like some sisters I know, they seem to watch each others every move as if to make sure the other one stays in line. Priscilla, the dog, seems to think it's her duty to make sure I let Sylvia, the cat, inside whenever she hears her outside the door. She will bark at the door until I let the cat in and then promptly trot away as if she is thinking, yes, my job is done- your welcome very much.
Priscilla also thinks it's her job to get me to fill up Sylvia's food dish. If I am upstairs she cries until I come down and when I ask her what she wants, she darts her eyes to the cabinet where the cat food is kept and then over to the cat, doing this several times until I get the hint. I kid you not, this is exactly what she does. I know, it's unbelievable, right?
Between the two of them, Sylvia mostly keeps Priscilla in line. She does this by making sure Priscilla doesn't chase any squirrels. If Sylvia catches her chasing the squirrels, she dashes across the yard like a cougar & swipes at her a few times just to let her know those squirrels are not negotiable, at least not unless she isn't too busy sunning herself on the patio.
Sylvia also likes to lie in wait behind the ottoman until innocent Priscilla happens to stroll by only to be jumped over and around by Sylvia the cougar. This sudden movement by Sylvia causes quite the ruckus with lots of very nervous barking and then playful leaping and more half hearted swipes on Sylvia's part. Priscilla seems stunned every time.
Like humans, these two require a lot of attention. As you can see by this photo, they give me a lot of attention too. This is their favorite spot to sit and look at me from. I have never been more stared at in all my life. Notice how they hang out by their food dish & the door. How convenient.
I hope you enjoy visiting here as much as I enjoy posting here. Thank you for reading & leaving your interesting comments. They always make my day. Until next time, Love,
Lily
PS If you enlarge this photo, you can see the contrast in personalities by noticing the look in their eyes.

Happy Blogoversary Soulsis. I love that you are blogging and that you love it. Priscilla looks all wide eyed and innocent - Sylvia's look reminds me of my cat Bella - in control even if everyone else doesn't realize it!
Love ya!

I once saw Priscilla sneaking up to and sniffing Sylvia's but until Slyvia realized what was going on. Sylvia swished around and Priscilla was so stunned by the suddeness of the movement that she lept up in the air about 6 feet. I thought it was hillarious. -The second born tomorrow minus 16 years...

Happy Blog Anniversary to You! I sure am glad that I found your blog, and I sure am glad that I read this post. Your pets are precious, and I needed the fun in this because one of our kitties died this week. We're all very sad, including Bootsie's two dogs who wonder where he went....I posted some pics at my blog of Boots but not the one of Abby the Old English Sheepdog studying his still and silent form....

haha, oh dear. These two have such big personalities, which is lovely to see and read about.

Happy Anniversary! Time flies, doesn't it.
I hope you have many more to come!

Oh Lily, I missed it but please accept belated congratulations on your first blog anniversary. I adore the photo of Sylvia and Priscilla. They are so cute together.
Anyway, here's to another year of blogging! xx
