I've come to the conclusion that Paco is just too darned cute for me. I don't know if I can handle this level of cuteness…seriously, it should be illegal.
First, there was him getting his head stuck in the lattice on his first day home with us. Less than five hours home, and he's already making us cut holes into the barriers we put up for him...I suspect he planned the whole thing so that he could try to get out again later when we weren't looking.
Then, when he was begging for food one night during dinner, we ignored him. We had just fed him, some food was still in his bowl, so we just acted as if he weren't there. He went into the kitchen, picked up a bit of the dry food in his mouth, brought it into the room we were eating in, dropped the food on the floor, then sat down facing us and joined us for dinner.
And THEN, the magic puppy trick; after five hours of being away from home with Paco in the crate, I come home to find that he had left me a puddle to clean up...OUTSIDE the crate! :eek:
I knew these guys were smart, but seriously...it's gotten to the point that last night, he was keeping me company in the kitchen while I washed dishes, but to keep him out of trouble I had him on a tied leash. He wrapped the leash around the table leg, looked at me, and then circled around once more to tangle himself up some more. I actually had to wonder...was he really unaware that he was tying himself up, or was he hoping that I would not only give him attention by unwrapping him, but also unleash him alltogether? Hmmmmm....
And now, a picture from whe my brother puppy-sat for us.
