Puppy Pile

Rainy days create lots of fun. Like when hu-dad, in his ever stylish sleepy pants, sat down in the floor to give Cheoah a little attention. The “hu-dad in the floor alarm” was sounded and Cheoah was no longer alone. The ending result was a puppy pile.

Really, this is love.

    We know that feeling at our house with 5 Sibes, especially our girls. You just gotta love it! It makes life all better and I wouldn’t live without it.

    While there are only two of us, we like to make sure we involve Mom in our on-the-bed bitey-face games whenever possible. Only once did one of us (Abby, no doubt) connect with Mom’s head, leaving her (Mom, not Abby) with a spectacular black eye (which, apparently, she had a difficult time explaining at work…). We considered it yet more tangible proof of our love for her. 🙂

    When I rescued, the dogs had a “cave” below a high back porch, enclosed with straw piled 3 foot deep. They would dog craters under the straw, and when I fell in them, everybody piled on top of me – all of my own 9, and 20+ fosters. It could take a whole afternoon to get them off and calmed down. 🙂

    That is an awesome picture! You just gotta love puppy lovin. We have the same thing here at our house. Sometimes the cat even joins in. What is really funny is to watch simba who is our 16 year old cat and bruce who is a 2 year old and 100lb german shepherd wrestle and most of the time the cat kicks bruce’s butt lol. Imagine that. Bruce is really a gentle giant. He may have his what we call growling pup moments, but usually it is towards strangers. My most concern when bruce and simba are wrestling in bruce stepping on simba. He is a lot bigger and can really hurt the old man lol. So i have to keep an eye on that. Hugs and kisses to the herd.

    Ayla sez: It’s the same at our house. Good thing there’s only two of us. When and of our hu-Family sits on the floor, they’re “fair game” for romps and rubs! No one wants to be left out.
