Identical Quizzical Expressions

The boys are not usually allowed upstairs, but sometimes my favorite boy toy lets them come up to keep me company as I get ready for work in the morning.  They were so cute at the top of the stairs, he got my camera out.  This caused the boys to give him identical quizzical expressions asking, “What cha’ doing Dad?”

After which they thundered down the hallway to jump on the bed and act wild.  You’d think I had small children up there bouncing on the bed, instead of a full grown (and I might mention older dog) upside down on the comforter, scratching his back as he wiggles all over.  Each time I vacuum the bedroom, I also vacuum the comforter to get the dog hair off.

The boys also like the water in the bottom of the shower.  For some reason it tastes much better than what’s in their water dish!  The next time I bathe the beagle, I’m running the shower water first, then letting him upstairs to lap it up.  Hopefully he won’t notice me in the shower with him until the door is closed and it’s late for him to run out.

    • They were actually two fairly wild boys at that moment.  I was surprised they stayed still long enough to get that picture!

    • I bet she did!  I try to keep her laughter in mind when picking out my photos, but don’t have enough for every day.  I wish I did – it sure does brighten her up to see the dogs or my husband in action.    I appreciate your notes letting me know when she’s particularly enjoyed one.

  1. Hahahahaaa! Dogs. Can’t live without mine. Bob lets our big dog get on the recliner with him when I’m not looking. Wrong! Now he thinks he can sleep on the couch too! Sigh. So, similarly, I vacuum the couch when I vacuum the living room floor. Yours are beautiful by the way! ~ Lynda

    • They are handsome boys.  We got leather couches a few years back to make it easier for cleaning up dog hair and body functions.  I didn’t think the boys would go up there, but they do.  I have to kick them off if I want to sit there!
