Overcrowding is a problem in much of the world. Here at home it is occurring in my family room. There are three wire Precision Pro crates set out. The doors are open except when dogs are eating. There are two very roomy ones and a slightly smaller one. Leidy picked the smaller one once she was released to General Population. If that’s where Leidy is going to hang out, then that is also where Holmes will be. He loves Leidy (I still can’t leave a collar on her because he has a mission to free Leidy from her earthly confines.) So this is how it looks from kitchen bar toward computer:

Empty crate

Inca in Crate

Leidy and Holmes in the littlest crate

Aside from looking long-suffering, Leidy seems to have no issue with the squatter.

. . . and then it gets even more crowded.

The child lacks basic manners

    What a hoot! Poor Leidy. She is VERY sweet to put up with that. I can’t see my older red girl tolerating that for a minute! Boys! What can you do?

    Heh, my son took one look at this and said, “Leidy looks fretted!” Silly Holmes, I just want to hug him!

    Love these photos. It’s like they both want the crate and neither is going to give it up – pig-headed children! – no matter how uncomfortable it gets. On the collar front, I ran across the lady who made the first collar that fell to Holmes at the Dixon shows. Leidy has a new collar awaiting her, though she doesn’t get to wear it until she gets ready to go on the airplane. Wouldn’t want to give Holmes any additional fiber in his diet.
