Lucy comes between George and Alan

Imagine my surprise when I looked out the window yesterday.
Former rivals for the number two spot in the herd, Lucy and George were napping together,
and Alan was nowhere to be seen.

I take that back. Here he comes.


Lucy: Don't look now but Pipsqueak's marching over here and he does not look pleased.


Alan: George, I'd like a word with you in private, please.


George: Whatever you have to say to me you can say in front of my friend Lucy. 


Alan: Traitor!


Lucy: Oh dear. I don't like being caught in the middle of this.


Lucy: But then again, I'm not about to give up this nice soft spot in the sun. I'm sure they'll work it out.


Alan: Yes, I am in a snit. Must you air our dirty laundry in public? Now put that camera away.

  1. Sorry you're in a snit, Alan, but that photo of you with the leaves on your head is one of my favorites. Ever.

  3. Oh, poor Alan! I did not see this coming. Somehow, I automatically pictured Lucy moseying off into the sunset with Mr Tall, Two-toned and Handsome, himself!

  6. I love your captions on this one.

    Don't worry Alan... Patrick feels your pain when it comes to the camera.

  7. But Alan, you behaved so much like a gentleman. You didn't cause any drama, you just walked away. I'd say there's no dirty laundry to be aired. Charlie Sheen, you are not.

  8. Office politics?
    Best always, Sandra

  10. I have to agree with Clairz...LOVE the photo of Alan with his head in the bush. Poor baby :( Do Hank and Lucy ever buddy up? I know if donkeys have a choice of horse, mule or donkey they go with another donkey, now mules will go to a horse rather than a donkey. Interesting. Have a good day

  11. Poor Alan. Must not be up for a three some-eh? I think Alan needs some love. It's amazing to watch the change in the herd dynamics.

  12. Perhaps he could make a hat out of that good looking green bush on his head?

  15. Poor Alan! I never thought a GIRL could come between him and George. I can't help but LOVE that last photo of him though.

  16. Hmmmm...what's the saying..."Three's a crowd?"

  17. Ahhh, just like a girl to get between boy buddies.

  18. Hmmm, I was wondering where Alan would fit in. Apparently he is too.

  19. This blog entry is one of my all-time favorites! I can't wait to see what develops next . . .

    P.S. to Alan - You're still MY favorite.

  20. Mmmm hmmm....and I see a spot, right there a little to the left of Lucy, where I could've squeezed myself right in and joined in on the sunny nap-fest.
    I think Alan just needed a little Juniper berry snack, which was why he didn't add himself to the donkey pile.

    He's also embarrassed about his snoring.
