I just really love dogs, you guys.

Sun’s out, tongues out!
“Let’s take a pic together!”
Am neither a cook nor a food blogger, but this looks vaguely like Blue Apron said it would, so I’m kind of excited.
Practicing “”Wait” and he really went over the top on Puppy Eyes.
Totally got it wrong, so I’m following the rules!
Sorry I’m late, my dog needed extra snuggles.
Doggo Headshots! Who’s your favorite?
This might look intimidating; he thinks so, at least. Until you realize it’s over a cup of ice cream and then it’s just really cute. [Edited to clarify: he didn’t have the ice cream; he wasn’t resource guarding or actually trying to intimidate me. I had asked for eye contact in order to give him the ice cream and he just did it Very Seriously.]
I must have gotten too close to the edge. He went for full lockdown.
This story isn’t about this photo, but I just thought he looked very handsome. Last night I stretched out upside down with my head next to Brady near the foot of the bed. We were gently playing and he was getting scratches and we were just having fun. I rolled backwards so my head was temporarily hanging of the bed and Brady lost. his. shit. He stepped solidly on top of me, as if to keep me from falling, then grabbed my wrist in his mouth, not to bite, but to pull me away from the edge of the bed. Once I was “safe,” he stayed standing on me, licking my face and neck and ears, for a solid three minutes. Then resolutely laid down between me and the edge of the bed, as if I could not be trusted. It was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen him do.
We had a dead branch come down in the last storm, but Brady has decided it is his new Best Stick and must stay. He’s very proud of it.
Tika doing her best meerkat.
mama i know youre cold but plees come play wif me i brought my toys and evryting …or how training my dog to politely ask for playtime is adorable and slightly frustrating at the same time. (Of course I went out to play.)
Brady’s breakfast was scattered under blankets and inside toys like this one and he was not amused.
Got some fun ones at work today!
We might have had a lazy morning, but plenty of adventures for the rest of the day!
Lazy morning back to bed after breakfast snuggles. Love him.
Torturing my dog with hugs. He loves to be near and/or on top of me, but doesn’t enjoy being held, so this a a rare occurrence saved for when we actually have someone to take the photo. He is not amused. 📷: @merianne
One nice thing about Brady being… how should I say… not a Border Collie, is that games like this can last longer!
You don’t have to eat that pizza crust if you don’t want to, Mama. I here to help you.
This is Arya. She killed the Night King and don’t you forget it.
I’ve been struggling lately. I’m doing the things and getting the help and being accountable and all of that, but, honestly, this little guy is doing most of the work. So if I turn down plans because I just want time at home with my dog, please don’t be insulted. Know that he is keeping me safe and warm and reminding me to drink water and take time to play. Exercising him keeps me from staying in bed for too long and training him keeps me out of my own head. I’m also fortunate to have a job I love and am happy to get up and go to every day, where it just so happens that I get to exercise and train and love even more dogs. So even though I’m having a hard time, it’s not the hardest time, and I am better-equipped to handle it than I have been in a really long time. So thank you for your patience and love and understanding and know that you can never send me too many dog pics.
Remember Newfoundland puppy Blue? I saw him for the first time in a while today and he is big and gorgeous and still not even close to fully grown, lol.
This is Hannah. I may have possibly requested her breeder information. You know, for someday. 😬
