As soon as anyone tries to work on the laptop Smudge is right there wanting to help. Help being the operative word. As you can see in this pic CB's chair is safely up on the dining room table where Smudge can't get to him and accidentally give him a thwap. He seems very happy up there and is snoozing quite peacefully I must say. Grandpa and Smuge are working on projects side by side at the kitchen table while Mommy gets housework done. They both look very studious don't they?
This arrangement seems to keep Smudge happy, while giving an adult some time on the computer. Whatever works right?
