Thursday Thirteen - 67 - 13 Peeks Into The Life of My Dog


1 - There's no place better than snuggling up on the couch.








2 - Xena adores her alpha male. AKA my husband Brad.








3 - She has so much fun at the family dinners. Little cousins are fun to hug.








4 - Xena recognizes a kindred spirit in my Auntie Noel.
















5 - Sometimes dogs come for a visit with their people, like my mom's friends from Yarmouth, who bring their dog Paige. Then Xena's in doggy heaven.










6 - Sometimes my cousin Julianne brings her dog Molly along, as she did for Christmas Day dinner. The more dogs the merrier!


7 - Xena and Molly keep the kid herd under control in the living room.
















8 - She practices doggy yoga to retain flexibility. She usually finds the best place for yoga practice is the path where people are most likely to walk.



9 - My sister loves making doggy accessories for Xena, as well as for her own two dogs. Brad wonders if she's made him a matching tie. Answer - not yet...



10 - One of Xena's favorite things to do is to go under my mom's bathrobe and let the fabric drape over her head like a scarf.



11 - Xena takes awhile to recover if Brad and I go away on a trip. This is Xena worrying that I'm about to disappear after returning from a trip to Toronto. Luckily for her, we've only had to leave her four times in her seven years with us. It's pretty hard to leave that face.


12 - And it's such a joy to come home to this face.







13 - It's tough work being so cute. Time for her beauty rest.

Not playing this week, but wanted to comment. This post is downright cute as heck. We have our dog Little Bit and it's just about the same for us. Yep, we do love our babies and they do come first. Have a great TT Julia. :)

Julia - I always said that I'd like to come back in another lifetime as a cat. MY cat. Because they're loved and spoiled and cuddled.
Well... I'm amending that wish: I'd like to come back as MY cat or YOUR dog :)
