Interrupting Slumber

In the continuing winter of really weird weather, we are having a warm spell and rainy weather. The senior team was quite content to curl up in crates and snooze the day away, though a certain Hu-Dad with a camera was interrupting slumber.

zzzzzzzzzz - interrupting slumber


The camera snaps, the flash flashes, and the Queen is disturbed. In Her Highness’ usual subtle way, she expressed her displeasure.

Why are you waking me up?

Why are you waking me up?

Sorry, Your Highness, but just a few pictures for the blog. Is that ok?

Go bother some other pup.

Go bother some other pup.

Fair enough. Let’s move to the next crate and see if we get a better reception.

    Cannot believe you would interrupt a pups’ slumber. Shame on you, Hu-Dad.

    Aww, you really do have a look of royal disdain!

    But you have the cutest sleepy faces ❤️

    I feel bad to tell you that we are suppose to get up to a foot or more of snow starting Wednesday thru Thursday. Bruce will enjoy it immensely, but then you guys won’t. We had really warm weather the other day. We had 2 days of 55 degree days and I thought it was glorious. I don’t think Bruce cared either way, but the crazy boy tried to go after a skunk and ended up getting sprayed a little. A little is well enough. Hugs and kisses to the herd.

      Our forecast is for “several inches” of snow Thursday night (after a few inches of rain between now and then), but then warm again this weekend. Weird winter.

Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
