Alex's horrible, terrible, no good, very bad day
As you can see by the subject yesterday was not such a great day for Mr. Alex. As it turns out he is only part monkey (though he appears to think he's 100%) and in testing his climbing skills fell off the couch and hit his cheek bone on the edge of our bed's footboard. Later in the afternoon I finally managed to convince him that playing with two feet and even his bottom on the floor can be fun too. At one point his attention went from cars to Jake and to make a long story short, he got bit. Nothing serious, just a nip on the shoulder. It wasn't enough to break the skin but did bring blood to the surface. So needless to say, Jake and Ellie are now at the dog sitter's patiently awaiting a new home. We'll miss them terribly but know it's for the best. There will always be a special place in our hearts for those crazy greyhounds!
