Morning faces

Cute dog pictures

I am a puppy of mystery. Some mornings I wake up with wild longings to tussle.

Woof!

Other times, I just want to crawl back into bed and be cozy.

Just let me rest please.

There’s a lot of hustle and bustle in our neighborhood today.  Stay tuned for SF Pride pictures!  While you wait, here is a wine glass votive lampshade to entertain you. 

The Garden of Earthly Delights!

Helping out around the house.

I try my best to be helpful.  For example, this morning Liam had a hard time getting up.  First the other mother tried waking him.  Then the other father got involved.  Finally, the other mother called me in to action!

Ready to help!

Just a little more writhing should do it.

Consider yourself awoken, Liam.

I think I should get a treat for my efforts, no?

Nothing new under the sun.

I have settled into a routine here. I start the day with a brief visit to the garden to pee. I return upstairs for breakfast. Then I crawl back into bed with the other mother. We relax together. I go for at least one walk each day. Usually two. If it is sunny, we go out to the garden.

I frolic in the grass.

Once a week, I get a bath, which I pretend to hate but secretly kind of enjoy. I accompany the family on visits to the Plevyak house and to get coffee and to visit the library. Sometimes we play fetch with the squeaky ball. I have dinner. I watch TV with the kids and the other mother at night.  They stay up too late for my taste.

I am mostly happy!

I am not friends with the cats but we mostly tolerate each other’s presence. I like to chase them. They hiss and make warning scratches at me. Ninety percent of the time, the scratches don’t connect, but occasionally I yelp in surprise and pain. I have not changed my behavior one iota. Nor do I believe I should. Luckily, there is plenty of room for us to coexist.

I don't know what they're doing here.

The garden is magic in the sun.

I remember fondly 2 days ago, when it was hot! I took turns sitting in the sun and resting in the shade.

All toasty in the sunshine!

Everyone went out to the garden to sit in the shade. Here are the cats.

I didn't chase them, I just sniffed them.

And here is the one who sometimes feeds me and takes me for walks.

Nice enough chap, but I do not recognize his authority.

Oh beautiful sun, where have you gone?
