For those of you that have been following along, you remember that there was a new "man" in my life named Abner. And you all remember my "secret" plot to steal him away from his owner.
Thursday night we were at home doing some cleaning anticipating guests on Friday when Brian hands me my cell and says your phone was ringing. I look at the number, don't recognize it but there is a message. It was my friend Mike (Abner's daddy). He tells me that he's at the hospital because he was out walking the little guy and stepped into a hole and twisted or possibly broke his ankle could I come pick him up.
As we're driving to get a prescription for Mike, I said "I know this sounds like a weak ploy to steal your dog, but if you'd like we'll take him till you can get around better." (Pretty crafty thinking huh?!?)
We packed Abner up and brought him to our house where he met Jasmine and Adeline for the first time. He really wanted to be their friend but they weren't having any parts of it. Abner has discovered the basket of toys and Jasmine has been sharing her toys with him.
Abner has been a lot of fun to have around. He was a big hit at Jasmine's birthday party yesterday too. Here are some pics from Abners visit and from the party yesterday. Speedy recovery to Abner's dad too!
This is the "wild man" look we'd get from time to time. This was the face that Jasmine saw most often as she usually tried to stay on the couch out of Abner's reach.
This is Adeline. She's not a small cat and somehow crammed herself into the bottom of the kitty condo to avoid the wrath of Abner. And no, I don't put my shoes away all the time!

The birthday girl had a little trouble with her hat.
So did Abner.
