Photoblog: Groomed Stitch II

I've been so busy lately that I haven't had a chance to post new Stitch adventures. However, I did want to post the latest picture from his grooming adventure part 2.

This time Stitch's aunt BFF took him to the independent grooming place near our house, where Stitch's cousin Boo gets groomed. Stitch definitely looks better than the first grooming, but unfortunately the groomers used a blade (#7) that cut his hair too short. We all can't wait until his hair all grows out, but Stitch is still cute as ever. For now, we're enjoying "Naked Stitch."

Here he is with cousin Boo just couple of days after they both got groomed.

bosom buddies

Every dog needs a best friend (aside from their people). Someone they can frolick and play with or just be lazy with. In Stitch's case, we thought his best friend would be Boo, BFF's, 8-year old Pomeranian. While Boo (now) mostly tolerates Stitch, my pup has really taken to Aslan, BFF's Birman mix cat. Throughout the day, they can be be seen together, playing or napping. Or as is sometimes the case, with Stitch annoying the meow out of Aslan. They do play very gently with each other, although you will hear the very rare "yip" from Stitch when Aslan's claw gets caught on his fur. Or Aslan meowing in annoyance when Stitch gets in his face too much. Trainer Ally suggested an easy "enough" command coupled with the clicker to get Stitch to back down a bit, which I have been trying lately.

In honor of this awesome duo, I present to you the Stitch and Aslan collection.

they nap together
they shoot the breeze together
they hang out on grandpa's chair together
they goof around together (well, mainly Stitch), they... roll around together?

Photoblog: Flashback to Li'l Stitch

This was taken around Thanksgiving, about a week after Stitch came to live with us. He used to love jumping on Grandpa's chair to sit and watch TV with him for hours. It was only about a week after this shot was taken that Stitch no longer fit in the small space next to Gramps.
