Dogma

I found Annie fast asleep on her bed in the den last night...along with my husband and two boys all sleep on the couch in the same room, basketball blaring on the TV. Only my elderly father was still awake. I couldn't resist a few pictures of the sleeping dog, husband and kids, but denied permission to post the pictures except of Annie...

She has such a wonderful, simple life. We adopted her from DFW Lab Rescue this summer, and she came with her name. She's two or three years old. She's fed, loved, sleeps with my boys, gets lots of love and car rides. What a wonderful life!

She does have some weird habits. She licks, constantly, herself and others. Then there's the butt scootch. I'll try to capture that on camera someday. It's hilarious. She keeps getting ear infections, more than my kids ever had, apparently that's a lab thing.

Donny, my eleven year old, woke up this morning to her barfing on his bed.


We love you, Annie!!

Coming later today, possible post on a past Mexico trip and/or our experience at the scary roadside circus excursion planned for today!

I feel that since they are family all bets are off on permission to be used in a blog. :)

Also my Shih tzu does that liking thing and golly its annoying.

Through Thick & Thin, thanks! We think she's pretty adorable too.

Valarie, I agree with you about family, but I do have to live with them. lol All dogs lick a little, but it sounds like you and I have over-lickers.

Thanks for coming by, both of you!

I have a four old yellow lab named Bianca. I just love her to pieces.

Just finished reading Marly & Me the other day. It's a must read for any dog lover!

Oh...I agree...I blog...be careful of what you say or do, or you become the fodder :-)

Love your pictures from yesterday. The girls seem a lot like my own. Whole different world isn't it?!

Our dog use to scoot all over the rug! She had a very itchy butt.

Annie looks so cute sleeping. I'm sure the hubby and the kids looked adorable too!

Jeff - I haven't read that book yet, but it looks good. They are filming the movie of it now also. Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston,I think...I could be wrong about the stars but I do know it's currently being filmed. Good to know you have a yellow lab in your life also! They're wonderful!

Kat - It is a whole different world having the girls around. They're adorable though and I loved it! I wish I saw them more.

Mama Bird Diaries - The butt scoot is hilarious! My goal is to catch it on film or video. Annie makes the funniest face when she does it. We scold her while we laugh. lol

She's adorable. We rescued a Weimaraner/Pointer mix a year ago...tomorrow (Hey that's my blog for tonight.) and I've been in doggie bliss ever since. Funny how we love them despite all their disgusting habits. : )

Uberburber - Thanks! We are in doggy bliss also, despite those bad habits. I'll look for your blog tonight on your dog!
