Can’t be beat

For Penny, proper sunbathing requires an extra comfy spot to lay her head. If she just flops on Eko he’ll inevitably move. Instead, Penny’s mastered the art of slowly sneaking herself towards the perfect pillow.

“Nothing to see here, bro. Just lay down…”

*Penny nonchalantly whistles and looks away*

Then she ever so slightly rests her head on Eko’s side

And nuzzles her way to the perfect nap!

By the time Eko figures out what’s happened, Penny is already asleep

And Eko is kind enough to let her stay that way. Like me, he believes it’s best to let a sleeping Penny lie

It may have taken her around a year and half, but it appears Penny has finally learned a little tact! Emphasis on “a little.”

Comments for A Slow Boil

  1. you are a gentledog Eko, that’s for sure. And my mom thinks we need a second dog… by now she is my pillow and that can be uncomfy at night to have 80 lbs on your legs for hours :o)

  2. Very tactful of Penny, she’s a smart girl! And very gentlemanly of Eko!

  3. What cute ass photos, she is such a sweetie and he is so tolerant.

    Lol. Penny is really smart. One thing I’ve noticed about dogs with short hair like your furry kids and Alex is that they love to sun bathe. I have to get Alex to come inside otherwise I really think she’ll cook herself out on the deck.

  5. the love between them is undeniable!! I just adore what a superb “big brother” Eko is, and that little stinker sure is adept at manipulating!!!! You are all truly blessed, these two are just amazing!

    Oh Penny, you are something! My cat bro Bert pulls that stuff with Katie but she usually gets up and walks away in disgust.

  7. Kismet says:

    Send her here-that will cure her of sunbathing.

  8. Eko, any pup who lets another pup put her HOT HEAD on his back on a warm and sunny afternoon deserves a big hug!

    HUGS, Sammy

    I think someone has her two favourite boys wrapped round her little toes!

    It is suppose to get in the ninetys here we have to hide from the sun. Today it is cold, then real real hot woofing crazy

  12. That Eko boy is a true gentlemen and champ. Self defense is a great motivator I see. 😉
