Monarchs on Parade

I have two large dogs. However, visitors could be forgiven for thinking I have no dogs and a sizeable blanket collection.Rhodesian Ridgeback, blog, cute, adventure, chicago, puppy

Yup, that’s Eko and Penny. Like crabs with sand, my two have perfected the art of burying themselves completely

“You’re letting in cold air, please kindly re-cover my cave.”

Eko and Penny are blanket monsters through and through. The beasts do occasionally need to awake from hibernation for various reasons. Which means my apartment is often haunted by these apparitions:

Funny how the ghosts always seem to show up around dinner time

The pups will nudge their heads out from under the blanket, but they’re quite content to leave the flowing capes draped over their backs

So when they sit down and look at me I feel like I’m addressing a royal couple. I decided to make it official with a few royal portraits

Being King is such a burden, but Eko wears the crown well

“OMG, DOES THAT MEAN I’M QUEEN!?”

“Fetch me more treats, peasant!”

When I heard Ridgebacks were “majestic” I wasn’t aware the description would be so literal

After eating and mingling with the commoners for a bit, the royal family parades back to the couch. Apparently ruling an apartment-nation is exhausting business

Often, the pups perfectly tuck themselves right back into their blankets. But if not, a few low whines and grumbles brings the help scurrying to pamper them. What can I say? I live to serve.

Long live the King and Queen!

This spring we found a K&H lectro-soft heated bed on sale for $25 — it’s probably the best money we’ve spent on Atlas! Before we broke it out once the temps dropped below freezing (we keep the house about 65° at night), he’d wake us up several times a night whining about being cold when he wiggled out of his blankets. But now he’s warm even if his blankets do slip off.

Though of course he would much rather be on the comfy couch smothered under the big fuzzy blanket…

That was hilarious! Great photos of the kids! John
