I just love having three dogs. OK - except for the last few weeks of sleepless nights. But after getting the puppies back on a normal sleep schedule, and getting a few good nights of sleep myself, I love getting all the cuddles and puppy love from these three possible.
Don't they look so cute sharing their favorite bed. I just love it when they're all cuddly.
I would call it a snow day, but right here on the Long Island Sound we're getting a wintry mix rather than snow - so school has been canceled today. For anyone counting at home, this is the third week in a row we've had a snow day. I don't hear any of the kids complaining.
My dogs are enjoying a nice cuddly nap together on one of the oversized dog beds. They're just too cute when they sleep together. They love a snow day, too.
Doesn't that sound like a rock band? They should be. These dogs are hours of entertainment. This week we had a lot of snow in the northeast. We got hit with 8-10 inches of snow and snow was canceled once each week for the storm. So we've been playing in the snow and sleeping A LOT. I have several dog beds around the house, but sometimes, they just decide to sleep on the same bed.
It's a tight squeeze, but they don't seem to mind. Well, at least Otis didn't mind until he rolled over and fell off!
A little later in the day, they tried this new configuration which I call "The Circle of Life -- with Bulldogs"
When it comes to bulldog tongues lolling about, it's hard to beat the Wilm. She's got the tongue and cuteness factor down pact. But the puppies are trying their hardest to edge in on her terrain. Here's their current attempt to beat the reigning champion as the Titan of Tongue.
Otis has the longest snout, so he shows the least amount of tongue since it actually fits in his mouth!
Duke has a pretty good sized snout, too, but his tongue hangs out in that way that only bulldog tongues can.
Wilma finds these posers to be complete amateurs.
In fact, she's a little bored with their attempts at Best Tongue.
She's actually really just showing off here with a feigned yawn - just to show these pups who's boss.
I hereby name Wilma the reigning champion of the Queen of Tongue.
Dogs make everything happy. If you're a dog lover, you already know this.
Yesterday we were all in my Knit Nook with Otis by my feet and Wilma right next to him. Then Duke decided it was a good idea to join in the fun and tried to wedge himself inbetween the two. He didn't quite fit, but he made do.
It seems that squeezing into places he doesn't quite fit is Duke's M.O. It's so cute.
He doesn't even seem to mind the view.
Wilma's happy as long as no one else touches her beloved lion.
Otis is pretty smug on his very own bean bag - an unusual treat.
The puppies keep me on my toes around the clock. When they're not sleeping, they're either eating, drinking, peeing, playing, going outside, or napping. But lately they've started to get a little more comfortable with their surroundings and are exploring in the house. Quiet, hungry little Otis turns out to be quite the explorer. He went upstairs to find Primogeniture this afternoon. Later tonight he disappeared again and I was on the lookout for our runaway rover. I asked BF and Primogeniture "Honey, Have you seen Otis?"
"No" they each replied.
So I went on a little reconnaissance mission to find my wayard ward.
It's Sunday - a day of rest. The bulldogs take their resting very seriously. Unfortunately, they're also male puppies, so they mark absolutely everything. Today after they ruined about 4 doggy beds from their repeated marking, I threw the soft fluffy dog beds away.
Not one to be left without a comfortable place to lay their heads, they soon came up with their own solution.
Life is always entertaining when you have three bulldogs in your house.
Seriously, it's a wonder I can even take time to shower every day when there is so much cuteness in my life. My three dogs are bringing me such joy. Look at this.
How can I get anything accomplished with these two little guys? Aren't they adorable? Look how Duke is hugging Otis.
And Wilma is loving the new additions to the family. She gets more attention, more biscuits, more outside time and more playtime. When the puppies get to be too rambunctious for her, we separate everyone until things quiet down. I think Wilma is acting 10 years younger (in dog years at least).
