Check out our new merch today!
Dutch, the elder statesdog of the family, had grown accustomed to his life as a solo pup
But as I detailed in this video, Penny eventually won him over. Dutch went from actively avoiding Penny to letting the little squirt cozy right up
Dutch can’t quite put his paw on it, but something is different about that little squirt he let use him as a pillow.
“Hey Will, do you ever get the feeling that Penny is bigger than she used to be?”
“Eh, whatever. It’s cold and she’s comfy.”
Dutch may not be able to tell for sure, but I know that with Penny’s ever increasing size there is no way to squeeze more than two pups on the futon. This of course causes a bit of an issue since everyone wants to hang out in the same room together.
Everyone looked to me for answers, but as usual, I had none
So Eko took matters into his own paws.
A perfect fit. At least in Eko’s mind
I thought I would need to call the fire department and have them use the jaws of life to free Dutch, but he loved every minute of it.
It was cold, so I guess two dog blankets is better than one!
Would Dutch be ok at my brother’s apartment for a long day? Sure, but I think he, me and my pups all prefer having Dutch romp with us!
two blankets are fabulous. I like the way Eko solved the problem… maybe you should send him to law school too? btw: I couldn’t comment on your NJ-post, but I wish you a good trip and a wonderful time there :o)
Mom always feels bad leaving us alone and even if we are just napping all day, it is nice to know we are all together.
very adorable and smart but dutch is the old hand at getting warm! -hey i got an email for a second blog about going to new jersey – was that a premature email?
Good dogs! LOL
house full of dawgs woof I am jealous I miss Riley
Two is company, three is …
That’s great that Dutch has a second home he can come and spend his days with. He seems to fit right into the family. I see another futon in your future though.
OMG Eko’s pose is just hilarious!!!!!! You are right, I bet this just makes Dutch’s day and he doesn’t have to be lonely 🙁
Cute photos, Gambler has to lay on someone all the time.
It’s great that Dutch adjusted to family life so well! He seems happy and Penny certainly appreciates the extra warmth he brings! I love that photo of Eko trying to reclaim what used to be his territory. 🙂
Who needs heat in Chicago in the fall? Dog bodies and breath warm it right up!
As much fun puppies are, senior dogs are just as special. Once Cody got older and settled, he maintained his puppy curiosity/personality but mellowed out out of some of the Border Collie hyper energy. (He was a mutt before it was cool to have mixed breeds.)
The name Dutch suits him so well!! Oh Eko, y’know you really don’t look all that comfy there fella! 😀
Hugs, Carrie & Pups x
Lol I think you need a bigger sofa!
Wow……that’s a whole pile of pups on that poor futon…..one big lump of WARM COZY FUN!
Hugs, Pam and Sam
love love love this post – being that we have a GSP of our own and he is a total snuggle buggle when it comes to the sofa. Loves getting himself squashed between me and hubby – no romance for us!
Oh I know from experience that dogs like Dutch enjoy their bonding days with their cousins! Jessie actually knows that we are coming to Mom’s on Saturdays and drives her nuts until we get there 🙂
Whee love that pigture of all three trying to squeeze in!
He, he, he! Super funny Eko! So glad you guys hang out with the debonair Dutch on Tuesdays.
This is so sweet. It is great that the cousins are growing up/old together 🙂 Family bonds are important always!
I love Eko’s half sit! And the expression that goes with it.
Dutch is lucky to have all of you for his Tuesday day care center.
Dutch is such a handsome boy. I love the black and white picture of him.
