Maximum Comfort

We are rough and tumble working dogs (hey, stop snickering out there!), thus, when we have that rare chance, we don’t just go for comfort. We go for maximum comfort.

couch looks comfortable

Oh, sure, this couch may look comfortable.

pillow is better

But a pillow does make things a little better.

stop snickering

You really need to stop snickering about that working dogs thing.

    Mom sez: Awwoooo, Frankie, I see you’ve worked yourself to an absolute frazzle again, and are trying to recuperate. Now needing to get yourself rested up for the Herd’s next big adventure, whatever that may happen to be. Hope you and the Herd all have a wonderful weekend, and are well rested for it,

    We weren’t snickering. I mean, our Mom calls us ‘ornamental’, so we’re not really in a position to mock. (Much. I mean, we were born to be ornamental… 😉 )

    Everybody works hard sometimes and everybody needs some good comfort too. It’s a give and take thing lol. Every dog deserves to be spoiled. You guys bring such joy into our lives. Hugs and kisses to the herd. Have a great weekend.
