Just for houndblogger…

Bedtime for doggies.

I need two pillows.

Sleepy time.

Sleeping dogs. Let them lie.

“Stretch” up there is Puff, a shepherd/sight hound mix, and the close-up is Molly, a beagle or beagle/basset mix. They’re old dogs. This is their favorite activity.

    Well, just for houndblogger it may be, but, I think that those are two lovely doggies.

      Old doggies. (Puff, a COTH giveaway, is 11, Molly is a shelter dog so we’re not sure but probably about the same.) The really funny thing is the ongoing battle for the Big Bed (the one closer to the fireplace.) Apparently that is the best bed and it’s much better to sleep in. They won’t actually fight over it, but if one gets up, the other kind of wanders over and takes over. So it takes a LOT to get whoever’s in that bed up!

    Houndblogger regrets being this late to make it to the party but LOVES these! Thanks, Lucky! That activity is second only to eating on our dogs’ list of activities. Your dogs look deeply unhappy in their stressful lives, just like ours …

      They suffer so much. Can’t you tell. (Well, actually, Tucker, not pictured, would argue that sleep is THIRD on the list, behind food and pettins’, and she is cruelly deprived of adequate stocks of both, but Tucker is a roughly-five-year-old very overweight* Pembroke Corgi and not a 10+ year-old hound mix.)

      *I take no responsibility for her size, as she is about seven pounds lighter than when I got her from the pound, when she weighed a whopping 39 lbs. Someone did not exercise her and must have fed her WAY too much. The goal for now is “under 30.”
