We have a small visitor for the long weekend: Abby's cousin, Lou the corgi. He looks something like this:
Although he actually looks a lot more like this:
Because he is older and so handsome, Abby LOVES him. He . . . tolerates her. Here she is lying across his path, trying to tempt him with her cuteness. He was not buying what she was selling.
He is very short. He fits under things...

Last night, we put his bed in our room and closed the doors so he'd be in with us and we'd know where he was all night. In the night, Mike heard him get in the shower. (Not like actually turning on the water and taking a shower, but just walking in there. Our shower is attached to our bedroom, you just kinda walk right into it, go down two steps and turn a little corner and you're in the shower; no door, no curtain, nuthin'.) I guess it was cool in there; not sure. Anyway, later in the night, Mike hears him trying to get back out of the shower--which involves nothing more than walking up two steps. Guess there was not enough room in there to get any momentum going, so eventually Mike had to get up and go boost him up unto the steps and outta there. (These are not deep steps; in fact they're pretty shallow. I didn't even have to boost my 85-year-old mother with her bad knee outta there!) Maybe tonight we'll leave the bedroom door open and let him sleep wherever he wants. Wonder if he'll choose the shower again...
Here are a few more pics, since he (and Abby) are so cute:
