Sleeping In

Sleeping in. Ah, what a wonderful concept. But with Cole, that has a whole new meaning. Sleeping in means sleeping IN something. He sleeps inside his tee pee during the summer, he often sleeps inside a sleeping bag on top of his bed, and sometimes it literally means sleeping IN a box. He's enjoyed this box for a week or so now. He has it full of pillows, blankets & a few select toys, as well as a direct view of the tv & full access to the Playstation. He even sits there playing Guitar Hero! Last night he fell asleep in his box, so Blake took this picture.
What a life!

This morning Riley was TRYING to sleep in too, but he was rudely interrupted by Bobbin. Bobbin decided she wanted to sleep in on TOP of Riley. Her usual sleeping spot just didn't suit her for some unknown reason, and Riley's must have look comfortable. She carefully crawled up on top of Riley, and began 'kneading' him... to soften him up? I must say, Riley handled it with grace and long suffering sighs. He just laid there & let her make herself comfortable. I'm really not sure if he completely woke up during the whole procedure. His eyes opened, but he didn't really look like he was awake. It really looked just like an old Looney Toons Cartoon with the great big bulldog & the wee itty bitty kitty. Maybe Riley & Bobbin have spent too much time watching cartoons when we weren't looking!

Something tells me that if Riley ever tries to sleep on Bobbin - it will be a whole different story.

Too funny! Riley is one patient dog! We had a Samoyed that did sit on a cat sleeping in the sunshine. Let us say that it was in retaliation. The results were explosive to say the least. Good thing Samoyeds have a lot of fur. The cat (Leo) went from a grey furry pillow to four legs in four directions...the dog just smiled!

Wow. That is sooooooo cute. I love the picture of Riley and Bobbin. Adorable.

Now, the one of Cole ... let him know that I think is it, too, is SOOOOOOOOOOO cute. **evil grin** Don't you love when they have their special 'something,' and they enjoy it to the bitter end? :)

Hey Donna!

Gosh, the kid and the pets are a riot! That's one patient dog you've got.

Thanks for sharing the pics.
