A Sleepy Eye

When Hu-Dad types louder than he should at his busyness, he disturbs our naps and we have to give him a sleepy eye.

Could you type quieter, Hu-Dad? - a sleepy eye
Could you type quieter, Hu-Dad?

All poor Landon wanted to do was nap. Is that too much to ask? But, no, Hu-Dad is clickety-clackety on his typewriter while mumbling to himself. And then he points his camera at one of us and snap. Just so much noise makes nap time difficult which is why Landon gave him the sleepy eye. We’re sure we have your full sympathy for our plight.

    what is it they say? … better the sleepy eye than the stink eye!
    either way your eyes are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! XO

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
