Erik came over and helped Jamie with the Dalek costume for Halloween. The costume is getting quite big, and it is on wheels. One of Mom’s roll-able closet racks collapsed and Jamie asked if he could cannibalize parts for the Dalek. So now it moves!
The humans had to do a lot of work while seated on the floor. I really tried to help by licking faces and ears and sitting on the cardboard parts. However, Erik shooed me out of the kitchen after a near-miss with both the box cutter and the hot glue gun.
I did learn a new trick featuring passive resistance. When Erik kicked me out of the kitchen, I thought Jamie put the leash on me to put me in the crate (he was actually trying to lead me to my chair). So, I splayed out all my feet and put my belly to the ground. I looked quite the sight as he dragged me across the ceramic floor! I got up and walked when I figured out that I wasn’t crate-bound.
Here is the progress so far:
I am looking forward to seeing how the end product looks! Although, truth be told, I will probably bark at it, like I bark at Vacuum Cleaner. Woof!
