Simba is so doggone cute as he waits at the back door to be let in. He knows he gets a treat as soon as he gets inside, so he's eager but rarely impatient. Sometimes he licks his chops in anticipation. As soon as he sees me heading toward the door, up go the ears, there's a coming-to-attention pose, sometimes there's a little dance. I've often wanted to capture that, but as soon as the camera comes out, his whole attitude changes. This time, though, I held the camera in one hand and reached for the treats in another, so I could capture his cuteness for you. Sorry about the screen door darkening the photos, though.
Notice how his tail is up in the earlier pictures, and then it begins to droop as he obviously wonders if he's ever going to be let in. But the hope always shines through in those eyes.
