Let Sleeping Dogs Snore

The days are shorter and hence darkness descends upon the farm in the late afternoon. And this would mean the dogs take it as their cue to pile into the house.
They try to snuggle up with their best buddies and stick their nose in the blanket.

Then, it is off to dreamland, with big, floppy paws hanging off the cushion.


Everyone loves the fuzzy, red blanket.


But, they don't like it.......



when the camera wakes them up.

  2. What kind of dog is in the last photo? Looks like there might be some blue heeler in him.

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Cute pics! We have one small dog and right this minute he "perched" upon my throw pillows on the couch. I put my camera settings to silent hoping to catch more candid shots of him!

  6. Patrice - The dog in the last pic is a bit of a "mix" and that is an understatement. It has been suggested that he is a Australian Shepherd mix, although I wouldn't doubt that he has some blue heeler in him.

  16. That Labbie looks like he espescially loves the blankie...The blue heeler mix must be the cuddly one and the Jack must be trying to steal the blankie away from everyone else!!!??? I love your dogs,you don't even have a throw over your furniture...you are brave indeed..

  21. Cute!
    I can just see them going round and round in circles scratching up the blanket to make a bed. Like they do here.

  22. Is your Aussie mix some kin to the large creature known as Roo? They won't be on the couch long when you start cooking, though. I get to look forward to three days of stepping over the dogs at the Chez, who are naturally waiting for oranges to drop into their turbans!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Airedalegirl - My Aussie mix is not kin to Roo, although they look a bit alike. I have to step over dogs here as well. Somehow they think they own the place. lol

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving...you have the perfect place for it.

  28. Lori - I do have four dogs, but my Border Collie was too busy outside to bother with taking a nap! That is my farmhouse in the header shot.

  33. It is said that dogs are the sixth sense for human kind. Seems as if they know in advance when time demands to slow down and live life according to movement of time. Please have a good Thursday.
