COMMENTS: Unbetaed. References to "Inky Houdini" and "A Bit of Bosch" in the T&T series, but this is not linear in the story line.

Feedback always welcome.

DISCLAIMER: The Mark Gordon Company, ABC Studios and CBS Paramount Network Television own Criminal Minds. Salut! I just took them out to play and I promise put them back when I'm done. I'm not making any profit just trying to get these images out of my head.

1) Dad (that's Agent Hotchner, to you) spoils our dog Inky like mad when he thinks no one is looking.

All I can tell you is that when Papi leaves on a case, Inky suddenly gets table scraps although Dad is sneaky about how he puts it into Inky's bowl. The 'no dog on the furniture' rule is also broken, because when Papi's out of town, Inky takes over the spot where Papi usually sits.

But, it's only when I'm not in the room.

Dad will shoo Inky from the couch the moment he hears me (which takes much longer than you would think) and Inky just gives Dad a look that clearly says, "Seriously?"

But I pretend to ignore it because Inky on the couch when Papi's not home seems to calm my dad down. Let me tell you, my dad does not like when Papi isn't home.

At all.
