Boy and his dog

Mini gets cuddled a lot. Most people think it’s because she’s so darn adorable, but it’s because she’s a horrible fleece blanket hog and cuddling with her is the only way we can try to sneak a free corner.


As evidence, here’s a shot of SK and Mini taken this past weekend at camp. Makes you want to say awww, doesn’t it?

But he’s actually trying to work a corner of the blanket out from under her and she’s having none of that.

    haha! This is SO Lizzie, my min pin. She is a huge cover hog for such a tiny animal… and she burrows, too, which never ceases to amuse me. Great photo, regardless of what’s actually going on there! ;)

    It was on the drizzly/damp/chilly side at camp, so the blanket was much sought after! And the tiny little dog won. Even I couldn’t sneak enough away to cover my feet and I feed her!

    I think I have that same blanket. My dogs are the same way, combined with a tendency to lie perpendicularly between my husband and me on the bed, so we’re both clinging to the edge of the mattress, blanketless.

    Yeah. We’re not the pack leaders of the house.

    Yes, Mini manages to make herself six feet long when she’s lying between us in the bed. Not sure how she manages it. Listening to my husband grumble about clinging to the edge of the mattress because of a six pound dog makes me laugh…until it’s me.
