Home Away From Home

Hello, friends!  Are you as ready for Saturday as I am?  What a week it’s been… well, let’s just forget about that, shall we?  Today I’m popping in with a quick pic of the kids settling in at our son’s house last weekend.  We haven’t established any permanent sleeping arrangements there yet so we just pull out the inflatable and some old bedding and make our little nest in the spare room.  Not quite the same as home, but it’s a little like camping and we’re comfortable with it.

Sort of.

See, the thing is, Wally and LuLu think it’s a big dog bed and there’s no way they’re going to give up possession of it.  They’re happy to share, but if we try to remove them… oh, the hurt in those faces!  We wouldn’t dream of pushing them off their beds at home, so why would we do it there?  Well, you know how we are when it comes to Wally and LuLu so, of course, all four of us crowd onto that inflatable double bed and just cling to whatever little space we can claim.

The sense of well being they give me is immeasurable, so as far as I’m concerned, nothing’s too good for them during their too short time in this life.

Love to you.  Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Oh those sweet faces! This post of yours has brought back memories of what you have just stated when our two were around. They are just fine, why wouldn't you be too? I had to laugh at it all. Thanks for the simlies.

  4. Ha ha, that is how it is with our furbabies, they think anything that is out was put there for their use, they sure look like they are enjoying it :) Have a great weekend!

  5. They are so precious and there is nothing else to do but crowd in their with
    them!! Makes sense to me - and yes, dogs do not have long enough lives. It just
    isn't fair - we've been there and it is soooooooo hard to give them up. On the
    positive side, their appears to be several things that are being worked on that
    will extend lives - unfortunately none will be available in our lifetime - we're
    to old now!! Nothing is more sad than to lose a dog.

  6. Another beautiful post and fantastic shot of your two pups. Dare I call them pups? It's clear you are basking in their love and warm companionship. Have a wonderful and restful weekend.

  7. Oh my goodness, I LOVE this photo of Wally and Lulu! Look at those beautiful faces! I just want to crawl through the computer screen and snuggle with them. I loved your post. It reminded me of our Lily and Ghee (our daughter's first bull terriers). Both girls were rescued at around age 7, both had had equally difficult lives. Aimee worked so hard with them and they loved her beyond measure. But ... they would only stay with us when she traveled. As they got older (especially Lily) their need for orthopedic bedding was necessary. We found that our twin sized Aero bed was just the ticket for them. We'd put a flannel sheet on it and of course their blankets their mama brought over. Lily always liked to be covered at night. I always kept their bed right next to my side of the bed so I could reach down and reassure her during the night when she woke up. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend adventure. Enjoy your Saturday Leslie. I'm going to finish my first card in my new craft room - yay!

  8. Oh Leslie I know the feeling! Hubby and I share our bed with our male husky. We only have a double bed and guess who's near the edge of the bed everytime, yup me. Maybe time for a queen size bed. LOL. Love Wally and Lulu's faces.

    Ter ;)

  9. Oh, so sweet. I love hearing about Wally and Lulu's adventures. Looks like they have made themselves right at home and don't seem to mind sharing at all. Hope you all had an enjoyable time with your son. You don't say if he has a family there too or if he's a single guy.

  13. I wouldn't kick them off either.... What cutie pies. They are do look like brother and sister even if they are from different litters. Super sweet Leslie. Glad you enjoyed the time at your sons.

  14. I am like you. I would consider it a blessing to have them snuggle with me & just enjoy the extra helpings of love they are giving (and getting). Brady sleeps snuggled against me every nite & bedtime is the best part of the day for BOTH of us! I may not "purr" like he does, but would if I could!

    Not only are they beautiful, but they have sweet dispositions as well. Imagine them sharing their own bed with the two human they love. I'm sure they were a tad confused as to why you wanted to sleep on their bed instead of your own. However, it looks like they were very good-natured about making room for you. Yes, I'm smiling. What a cool family!

  19. This is a great picture! I love the love on their faces - I'm sure they kept you nice and warm!

  20. Love how you spoil them, Leslie. Or maybe it isn't really spoiling, because they seem like the most well behaved, polite pooches every! But I hope you know what I mean. :)
