The tyrants sometimes howl when the old newspaper van passes by, answering the mournful call of 'paper lama old newspaper papaeeerrr laaaaamaaaa'. They only howl at certain vans, though, they seem to howl only at those that sound really tragic.

Sometimes they howl with all their might. Sometimes they lift their head and howl a small pathetic whimper. Sometimes they just cock their ears, decide its not worth the effort and continue sleeping. Especially if they're still upstairs enjoying the air-conditioned room.

But when they do decide to put their best effort and perform the howl choir, they sound quite impressive. (Or, if you ask our neighbours, impressively annoying!) Here's an example.

Yesterday I was sitting with the little human tyrant who was happily amusing himself when a paper lama van passed by. The furry tyrants were outside, and decided they would give a performance. All three howled and howled and howled, with strains and arias and what-nots.

The little human tyrant sat listening intently to the choir. Then, to my amusement/ horror/ disbelieve - the little human tyrant pursed his lips into a neat O - and howled a little baby howl! And he has not yet spoken his first word!

Three years ago we posted this picture of little Togo peeping out of his brand new wall.

Togo has now grown, the wall has cracked, and the once pristine wall windows has tyrant snot all over it.

Keeping Watch

Tagar does a wonderful job baby-sitting.
Or baby-sleeping, more accurately.

The video stops there. At that point the Tagar leapt up and swallowed the baby whole.*

How many dogs does it take to bathe a baby?

Although only Gamby seems to take the job seriously.

Gamby : Check, all back baby hair shampooed.

Gamby : Check, neck fluff washed off.

Gamby : Check, crinkles in legs and hands cleaned.

Good job Gamby.
Now if only they will behave so well when its their turn to bathe!

Since we're already in the bath, I'll throw in some baby making weird faces photos. Baby says 'Nenek see my teeth!'

Well well well.

The fur-kids KNOW that the couch is off-limits, but apparently the little human tyrant is egging Gamby on to be naughty. I was away in another room, and when I came out I caught this.

Very bad video quality though, this was caught on handphone camera.

Tales of the furry, scrunchie-eating, lovable tyrant.
