"Pay attention to only ME!!!!!"

Luna, the wiener dog, loves her Mark. She chases after him to get petted. Seriously.

Mark was trying to do his homework. First,.Luna jumped into the chair and started banging his arm with her chewed up funnel. That's didn't work. So then, Luna flung herself into his lap and onto his papers. That worked. She got petted.

But, Mark had to finish his homework so he went to a table. 

Luna was despondent.

Okay, Luna, this is a new one......

Luna, the wiener dog, was fascinated with the pool tonight. She was fascinated with some smell known only to her. We have no idea what it was, but she kept smelling the pool in one particular location. We could see the little tip of her black nose wiggling back and forth. We checked the area for swimming frogs or something, but couldn't find a thing. We even checked the pool drain, nothing. I was ready a book, and the entire time I sat out there she kept her head down, sniffing the water. Freddy and Malibu came by, but they weren't interested in whatever Luna could smell. Sure wish I could read doggie minds.....

Snuggling with Luna.

Luna, the wiener dog, loves to cuddle...when she wants to. Mommy is trying to get Luna to cuddle when Mommy wants to. Luna's not so sure about that. When Mommy puts Luna in her lap, Luna remains all stiff-legged, every muscle tight, and her spine stiff as a board. Gee, relax Luna. Mommy gives Luna extra attention trying to loosen her up. So far, this has only made Luna want more of her cuddle time. But, she still stiffens when Mommy wants cuddle time.

Mommy doesn't get much cuddle time with Luna as it is. Malibu has no tolerance for Luna in Mommy's lap. Malibu will squeeze between Mommy and Luna until Luna is shoved off. Of course, then Mommy is in trouble because she was holding Luna. 

Freddy doesn't care as long as he's not disturbed.

How much is that doggie in the window?

Freddy, the wiener dog, and the girls are so happy Mommy's spent more of her time at home the past three days. Mommy was putting a lot of volunteer time at the middle school helping with the band. 325 students. The band teacher has a lot to do..... But, Mommy really missed her doggies. It was apparent before, but especially now - how much the doggies missed their Mommy. We're used to hanging out with each other all the time. Mommy hated seeing her doggies so sad.

Today, they have been full of energy! They're running around, swapping out toys, and just being silly. Mommy put a footstool near the windows and Luna just loves it, which is quite funny. There's a big chair in the living room that they can see everything from, but Luna prefers the footstool for watching the world. Of course, the footstool is in the same room and the computer, and it's lower to the floor for easy access. Still, Mommy finds it funny to watch Luna on the footstool.

Little Green Rhino

Luna carried the little green rhino outside with her for a pee. She set it down and accidentally peed on it. Now, she doesn't want it. She walked around and around the little rhino trying to find a place where she would pick it up, but left it. Now, she doesn't want it. Neither do the other dogs.....

King of the Pillows

Freddy takes over Steven's pillow.
Freddy, the wiener dog, loves to sleep with his humans. Freddy is a pillow hog. In fact, Freddy thinks he is King of the Pillows. No matter who Freddy sleeps with, Freddy takes over the pillow.

Sometimes, Freddy burrows under the covers and grunts and mule kick's his humans until he gets the exact spot he want. But, usually Freddy just climbs on top of the pillows and his humans have to find another place to put their head.

Mommy's turn to be sick.

Freddy, the wiener dog, has enjoyed the last few days of complete bedrest. Mommy has been sick with a bad cold, so Freddy has been lounging next to Mommy. Tonight, Freddy is snoring...loudly.

For the most part, Malibu has enjoyed Mommy's stay in bed. But, she does get a little restless to go outside and play. Thankfully, she understands that Mommy is sick so Bu isn't fussing for Mommy to outside and play too.

Luna, however, is very lazy so she is happy to stay in bed for extended periods of time. She makes sure to never miss a meal or snack, though.
