Lazy Animals

The cold weather is back and my house pets are getting caught up on the rest they missed out on the last few nice days...

I've always wondered if cats dream like dogs do? I don't know...but our cats snore!!
These dogs crack me up. They "overed" on Megan's bean bag last year and now it is a constant battle of wits to see who gets to sleep on the coveted bean bag. Apparently the regular dog bed is considered second best...
These two definitely know how to push each other's buttons. If Red Dog is in the bean bag and Ute wants it, all Ute has to do is go stand by the food dishes. Red Dog cannot stand anyone trying to over on his food dish. He is not aggressive in any way, but he will go lay next to his food dish and wrap his front feet around it. When it is empty, he stares into it with the saddest look on his face, as if he just cannot believe the cruelty he must suffer. Now if Ute is in the bean bag and Red Dog wants it, he will come over to wherever I am and begin to rub and love on me with all his might(and believe me fatty there, has a lot of might). Ute cannot stand to see anyone get his loves so he will leave the bean bag to come get his pets. Red Dog doesn't even try to hide his intention-as soon as Ute comes over, boom...RD heads for the bean bag. What a couple of spoiled mutts!!
RD has only recently acquired the "cute puppy" rollover. Ute has it down to a science...
LOVE ME!!!

Awwww!! I don't know about cats, but I know our dogs majorly snore. There's been times they've woke us up and they are all the way across the house. I think it's mostly big dog though. lol. We have one little doggy bed thing and the two little ones fight over it all the time. I walked out there last week and saw big dog trying to lay on it!! It basically fit under her head and front legs and that was about it. Crazy animals.

They are such cuties!! I love Ute's face in that last shot!! He is smiling!! And it's so funny how dogs get their way!! I love it.

I hope you stay warm. It is 75 today. We were riding bikes and playing with side walk chalk. You and Blue horse should make this your summer home!! :)

Your kitties taking cat naps is making me t.i.r.e.d. *yawn* Nothing puts me to sleep faster than when the cats climb on me or curl up next to me and fall asleep. They are living sleep aids!

Your dogs are funny! I love that they push each other's buttons!

lmao its funny how when cats nap it looks soooo uncomfortable, but they must be completaly content of else they'd move. Or atleast you'd think. Love the pups! Heelers have turned into my favorite.

We have a cat who walks in her sleep, so I assume she is dreaming. One time she ever hissed and screeched like she was having a cat fight........has to be dreaming. Wouldn't you think?

Dogs and their antics are adorable. Of course, the human chair would be better than the dog bed. I totally get that logic.
