Back in early December I posted a photo of Sunny in that same chair with Holly, who was surprised he’d jumped into the chair with her. Neither dog budged, leaving a crowded chair for two. Sunny has continued to find his chair occupied by various female dogs, and as you can see, it doesn’t stop him from climbing on up anyway. Interestingly, the girls always tolerate him. (He’s lucky — Widget, who was always in one of the two Ikea chairs, would have sent him packing had he tried this with her.) That’s Darla with Sunny in the photo above, during a momentary absence from my recliner.
Here he is settling in with Aurora, who no doubt is wondering why exactly he’s there:
Aurora frequently rotates between the two Ikea chairs, not showing any particular preference. It’s clear, though, that Sunny has a distinct preference for this one chair, whether he has to share it or not!
About the captcha issue with blog comments: Our web designer installed that captcha over the holidays because I’d mentioned to her that we were starting to get hit with spam comments. Unfortunately, that particular captcha had an imbedded time-out feature, set to 90 seconds, so if you didn’t enter the right number within the 90 seconds — and I think the clock started ticking the moment you opened the blog post — you’d get an error message. And the resulting error message it generated wasn’t helpful at all. What you needed to do, not that it told you, was to go back to the page and refresh, then enter the number again in the captcha. A complete pain. I didn’t realize this and have since had our designer uninstall it. I’m sorry for the problem it caused.
