When I can’t focus, I talk about the fluff.
And today…well, it’s literal fluff. 😉
If you’ve been around this place awhile, you know about Sammy.
He’s our younger golden of the two at eight years old, but he acts about eight months old. He’s all crazy puppy and all love. Truly. And you will also never, ever meet a more loyal dog.
We kinda love him. A lot.
And it’s not really a secret in our house that our dogs are a bit spoiled. Not completely, but there are certain things they get away with. They regularly make themselves comfortable on our bed or on the furniture. (We just clean the dog hair off a lot. Pretty much every day, or at least it feels like it.) They beg when we eat. While we make them lie down while we’re actually eating, they do usually get a scrap of people food. And there are presents for them on Christmas and cuddles for them every day.
Every hour. 😉
They’re part of the family, and if dogs can reason, I’m pretty sure they know that.
Around Christmas time, I was the recipient of two awesome blankets. A sherpa throw that is UH-mazing and a heated blanket that has been my best friend during this never-ending thing called the Polar Vortex.
I will occasionally have to wrestle these blankets away from my daughter…she clearly shares her mama’s love of NOT. BEING. COLD.
Don’t worry…there’s zero bitterness in there. 😉
But my dog? Really?
I literally hopped off the couch for less than two minutes to run upstairs and do something. Left the heated blanket on because, well…IT’S COLD and I really can’t wait to Just. Crawl. Back. Under. It. And. Be. Warm. Again.
I thunder down the stairs, turn the corner, and…
On my blanket AND my pillow. All cozied in and snuggled up and looking about as cute as he possibly can.
Oh, the eyes…the please-don’t-move-me, look. Melt.
And while everything in me just wanted MY BLANKET BACK, it was too cute not to photograph. Hubby is good with a camera, yeah?
So that’s the story.
Of my cute, furry, sweet golden retriever and how he totally steals blankets and the comfiest spots in the house.
And since I know you’re wondering, T convinced him to scoot over a few minutes later, just enough so I could reclaim my spot.
And then he snuggled right up next to me.
It was a good afternoon.
Happy Tuesday, friends! Today I’m linking up at Crystal’s space for Behind the Scenes with some of my favorite friends. We’re sharing the silly and sweet and sometimes-tear-jerking moments that happen behind the camera lens…I hope you’ll take some time and pop over to read some great stories.
Social media and online relationships can make us feel like everyone else has it all together. We’re edited, proof-read, Pinterest-perfect versions of ourselves (or so some might think!) when – in reality? There is an unfinished pile of laundry around the corner. That cute toddler smiling for the camera just had a massive meltdown seconds ago. That yummy breakfast-for-dinner you just showed us on Instagram? It’s because the cat licked the chicken that was supposed to be for dinner.
“Behind the Scenes” is a fun link up where we show those photos – but tell the real story behind them. The sneak peek behind the scenes, a look past the edges of the photo to the real life behind it.
