Wordy Wednesday: Hanging Out with Dad

IMG_2442.JPG

While mom’s away, the boys will play…right? Well, I hope not! I’m hoping that while mom is away on business, dad will just sit down on the couch and let me sit in his lap. I’m sure he’s going to be tried since he’ll be getting up early with us every day. And I’m sure that Moby will demand at least a couple walks, but I hope I get to go along for those too! I mean, I am the older brother, so I should get to choose what we do without mom here, right? Breakfast, naps on couch, dinner, naps on couch, bedtime, repeat. Sounds pretty good to me!

Wordy Wednesday: Because I’m Happy

IMG_3246.JPG

I think I have a pretty good life. I have a big brother who, despite being young and annoying, will always have my back if needed. My mom takes me for walks whenever I want to go. Dad lends his lap to me every night.

Sometimes mom takes me for rides in the car. They usually lead to my Aunt Betsy for a nail trim and/or bath, but sometimes that means that I get a surprise visit from Uncle Swen (I LOVE Uncle Swen). Other car rides lead to the treat store, mom’s workplace or my favorite place, Grandma’s.

I get breakfast first thing in the morning and when mom gets home from work at night. I get treats whenever Moby gets back from a walk. Sometimes Moby lets me clean up after his Kong Wobbler dinner (he can’t get in the small spots where kibble ends up).

I have a pretty good life. Sometimes I am sad to hear that my siblings didn’t always have it as good as I have – dad got me when I was just a baby. He met my parents and everything (I’m from Rincon, GA). I had a good home then, but I’m really glad that dad picked me. Or maybe I picked him. Either way, I’m happy!

Wordy Wednesday: Why Short Curly Tails are Better

Sometimes I wish I had a long tail like Brutus, Dixie or Moby. But then I think about how I’ve never hurt anyone with my tail. I’ve never knocked things off the shelf. I’ve never got it caught in a door. Short curly tails are not only cute, they are safer!

I will further say that nubs are also nice, but I really believe that short and curly is the way to go. I mean, just look at how adorable that little pig tail is! No wonder people find it so hard to resist me! It’s like a magic wand that casts a spell – I magically appear in laps, get treats whenever requested, get carried when I’m too tired to walk, I even get lifted onto the bed! No more longing for the long wispy tail of my siblings – mine is just right!

Wordy Wednesday: Underbites

Dear Boney,

My husband dreams of a dog with an underbite. Can you explain why underbite dogs are more attractive and just all round better than other dogs?

Sincerely,
Julia

Dear Julia,

It’s true, underbite dogs are better than other dogs. I honestly don’t know why, it’s just a fact of life. The best part about underbite dogs? It’s not just those of us with squishy faces that have underbites. I’ve seen underbites on dogs with long snouts, short snouts, and everything in between! Not that I’m biased or anything, but I personally feel that the squishy face underbites are the best out of all of them. It allows us to camouflage our true feelings, making silly faces or mean faces at any given moment! That makes us more versatile in every day situations, so I guess that’s what makes us better. You should definitely help your husband live his dreams and give an underbite dog a home! I’m sure there are plenty out there looking for their forevers that would love to live with you! Good luck in your search for the perfect underbite – it will be tough since I’m already taken!

Love, Boney

Afternoon Play Time

The boys have been sleeping most of the day lately (probably due to you-know-who waking at the wee morning hours). However, one afternoon this week, I noticed that they were  playing! Enjoy our “reality tv” :)

Getting Reaquainted with The Crate

Such a handsome face to wake up to, right?

IMG_2941-0.JPG

 

Not really.

Boney has three modes of waking someone up.
1) Run wildly around the bed so that you have to get up for fear that he will fall off.
2) Run wildly around the bed and come up to your face to start covering it with bad-breath kisses.
3) Bark like a maniac.

This morning, he did all 3 of those things. At 3 A.M.

I picked him up, took him to the dog door and shoved him outside to go potty. I told Moby to get back in bed and we closed the door to the bedroom. That worked for about 10 minutes. Boney came back in, wandered around for a while and then stopped at the bedroom door where he woo-woo-wooed. I let him back in. He wouldn’t lay down. We put him back out. He woo-woo-wooed. Needless to say, after breakfast, even Moby was ready to skip his morning walk to go back to sleep. By that time, I was wide awake so just tucked the boys back in bed with their dad and went to work out.

So what are we going to do about it? Boney is going to start sleeping in his crate again. We’ll see how it goes. I’m sure he won’t like it to start with, but he seems to be getting up earlier and earlier every day. Joe likes to blame it on Moby and I’ll admit that Moby does “readjust” a lot during the night, but he’s happy to lay in bed as long as we want to.

Brutus, Dixie and Boney all used to sleep in a crate. At that time we “only” had a queen bed and the 5 of us in bed was difficult to say the least. When Brutus got sick, we let him sleep with us. When Dixie got sick, we let her sleep with us. Then Boney felt left out so we let him sleep with us, too. When we got Moby, he had a crate he could sleep in but I felt bad letting Boney sleep with us and not him – so they both slept with us. We’ll be experimenting over the next few weeks to see if we can find a sleeping solution that works for all of us.

Do your dogs sleep in crates? Do they sleep with you?

Wordy Wednesday: Hold Your Head High

Dear Readers,

Sometimes, when you are very wise (like me and Jake), your head gets very heavy. I just wanted to let you know that it’s a-okay to find something to help you keep your head held high. Your person’s arm, leg, lap, chest, the couch, the counter, a pillow…whatever it is it will be there to help you.


What’s your favorite thing to rest your head (or body) on?

Love,
Boney
