Catching Up… Again

So far, my desk apron has done the trick!  Ryder has grown bored of trying to get under my desk, but has found many other mischievous fun things to do.  Unfortunately, he still climbs under the other part of my desk (under my feet) and pulls on all the cords, etc.  I could probably easily remedy this […]
