Naughty Nighttime Antics

Some nights everything goes smoothly but other nights the critters are just naughty.  Tonight is one of those nights - the naughty nights.  The little critters are good - they are in critter land - they have been loved on, medicated (Violet, Ollie and Phoebe), their area cleaned up, etc.  They are settled in for the evening.

The big kids however - OMG - what a pain in the rump they are!!  Emma decided she wasn't going outdoors for her final potty.  Tango and Charli decided that they were going to pitch hissy fits when they got put in their beds for the night.  Winston made a giant fuss so I took him out to potty - which he didn't go - and then I put him back in his room and he continued to fuss.  It wasn't til I went in there and did his bug check - checking him for ticks - that he decided it was finally time to go to bed. Okay - that last one is kinda cute more than a pain in the rump.  Only Juliett did what she was ask with no fuss.

So - as I type this I think everyone is finally settled down. Tango is grumbling because I put a new crate bed in his crate - he is a bed killer and this one is chew proof supposedly.  Charli has finally gotten comfy - she complains every night - not just tonight.  Juliett is sacked out - I do think she likes her crate and it doesn't take but an instant for her to be sprawled out and fast asleep.  Emma is snoozing at the end of the bed and Winston has finally gone to bed now that we determined he has no bugs - crazy damn pig....

I do love this crazy bunch!!
