    DefaultIf Simon was any cuter...

    I wouldn't be able to stand it. Seriously. He is just so freakin' cute sometimes!

    OK. Angus does "sit pretty," which is sitting up on hind legs and waving front paws in the air. He's been doing it for quite a while. Simon has never quite perfected this move, probably because of his terribly sloppy sit. He doesn't have a good base to sit upon. But he does love to put his paws up. So, I will sit in front of him and say, "Sit pretty!" and hold his paws to help him balance.

    Tonight I was a little keyed up on seeing them when I got home and was teasing them, playing around and whatnot. I forgot myself for a moment, and said, "Simon, sit pretty!" while giving the usual hand signal I give Angus. I was standing at the time, not sitting in front of him to hold his paws and help him balance.

    Well, bless his adorable little heart, he put those paws up in the air and tried his hardest to sit pretty, but lost his balance and fell straight backwards onto the floor in a heap, eyes wide as could be. Ohhhh, sweet Simon! You tried, little man!

    He was not hurt, incidentally. This was on soft carpet. He often collapses on the floor into a heap while he is being petted. It is as if he suddenly has lost his skeletal system. So funny. I've just never seen him fall completely backwards like that.

    Just cute. Really, really cute.

    oh that is just too cute!
    good effort simon!

    theo actually is like angus and does this pretty well, except one time he tried it and was wayyyyy excited and ALMOST fell over backwards. the look on his face was priceless, so i can totally visualize mr. simon's attempt!
