Host Rod

Rod is not a great host.  He doesn’t understand that sometimes it’s ok for people to be inside the house besides his regular people.  When my besties came for an overnight visit, I wasn’t sure if Rod would be as excited as I was.

He met them with some expected hostility:

But they came prepared with treats and patience:

Rod still wasn’t quite sure though. 

Everyone settled in for the night and Rod apparently forgot about his visitors while in dreamland.

Because the next morning he seemed really surprised to see people in the house.

But this seemed to be the key to his acceptance.  He quickly made them one of his regulars, removing receipts from their purses.

And socks from their overnight bags.

My besties went back home and it was business as usual.  But sometimes, Rod still checks the guest room for his new friends.

Don't worry, Rod!  They'll be back!


  1. Well that all worked out good. Once Rod was stealing socks and receipts, he was hooked!

  2. I is also a east coast tweenie with very many interests in Rod. The drawings of him is quite handsome. It gives me laughs!

  3. Oskar isn't much for visitors either...luckily your guests came bearing treats!!
    Luv the drawings!!

    Thx for stopping by our blog!

    (((hugs)) your friends
    Oskar, Schatzi & Xena
