For today’s doggy love fest, I wanted to share the funny things that my dogs do… Petey is quite a character. Lately, he’s taken to sleeping in the most random places. Mostly, it’s because his spot of choice gives him a good view something going on in the house, or potentially good access to falling food.
Here is dog on a shelf:
And sleeping on the armrest of the couch:
And then again on the bottom step of the staircase:
Cassie, on the other hand doesn’t really sleep anywhere unusual, in fact, she’s usually pretty busy all day and doesn’t nap much when we are home. Her quirk is the unusual things that she’s afraid of. We’ve known she’s afraid of thunderstorms, cameras, metal cans being opened and the beeping of our digital thermometer. We discovered a new one this week – she’s afraid of my Garmin. I don’t think I shut it off properly, so it will randomly beep for a while after I’ve used it (the beep sounds like the thermometer that she hates). It’s usually near my computer or in my workout bag and we don’t hear it, but we can tell by the way she’s acting that she hears it and isn’t happy. Poor kiddo.
While Cassie doesn’t like cameras, I can occasionally sneak up on her for a picture with my phone (I know I’m mean). I snapped this one yesterday – Petey with his usual table pillow.
On Friday last week, I decided to take both dogs for a walk at the beach. They were actually really well behaved, considering all of the dogs that were out, both dogs listened to me and walked along as they should. I took a little break to take some pictures. They were about as cooperative as my kids. Not only was Cassie not pleased with the camera, but she didn’t like being up on the wall either. I still like the pictures.
The dogs were pretty hot and tired and we only walked for a half hour. Petey was making for the shade of every car we passed.
So that’s my puppy love-fest for the day. Follow me on Instagram and you can be sure to get an overload of my dog pictures (and food pictures) – @familyfitnessfood
Anyone else have uncooperative kids and dogs when it comes to pictures?
Hope you all had a good weekend. I did go for a nice 6 mile run with my friend on Saturday and also went to Yoga yesterday. Along with some fun family and friend events, it was a good weekend.
