We had posted on Facebook one night how Frankie liked to sleep by holding the hu-dad’s arm.

    That is SOOO sweet, and shows complete love and trust, and a feeling of security. Ayla does something similar. In the morning after the hu-Dad is off to work, if I crawl back into bed for an hour, she has to get up on the bed with me, and insists I have my arm out, just below the hu-Dad’s pillow, and she will “nudge” her head under my hand, so that my hand is resting on the top of her head, and snuggle that way until I decide “enough of this is enough, I need to get something done”, and get up. Ice, on the other hand, doesn’t even LIKE being up on the furniture, so he positions himself as “sentinel”, lies just outside the bedroom door, with just his head across the threshold into the bedroom.

    Awww – very sweet! Sometimes I wish, around 3:00 A.M., that Kori would snuggle this way! I love that she wants to be close to me, but waking up because you are stiff and sore from being pinned in place by a collie – not much fun! 🙂

    Soooo cute!

    Must say Awwww! too. When did Frankie start to hold on to hu-dad’s arm? From day one?

    Frankie looked so secured and comforted.

    Awwww! I’m glad Hu-Dad got a few pictures of it for us!

    One of many things I love about the breed; their cat-like traits of independence, not wanting to be under your feet all the time, (like my rescued off the street lab mixes) and fuzzy snugglers.

    Awww! I wish my Bruce would snuggle like that with me. He snuggles with Dad more than with me. He is such a brat. Frankie you are such a cutie. Oh and by the way that is my husbands name lmao. Hugs and kisses to the herd.

    Better than a security blanket. Awwww.

  16. Kate on January 3, 2013 at 6:24 am

    Awww! So sweet!!
