But, mostly, they are sweet and snugly. Sam has come so far from when we first brought him home. Having him neutered made a HUGE difference. Jim kept saying that it wouldn't matter, he's too old for it to change his behavior, but boy howdy was he wrong. Sam is so much happier now! He plays more, snuggles more, runs hysterically around the house more, is less "on guard". Sis always called him her "little warrior" because he was always at the ready for attack. You could see in his face his doubts about why you wanted to pet him or scratch his belly. He had finally started to relax just a little and actually lay on his side and present his belly to you, but only about once every few days or so. Now, you just look at him and he flops at your feet onto his back and wags his tail for all he is worth. It makes my heart so happy! He has even started sleeping on his back, unattended, and that is definitely a sign that he feels secure.
Sleeping with one eye open!
Mrs. Weenie is the biggest snuggler of them all. That dog can curl herself into the tiniest and tightest of balls; it's almost like she doesn't have any bones! Her absolute favorite spot to sleep is anywhere on Les. Les spends a lot of time napping in the recliner, so she is usually in seventh heaven, as the following pictures will show (these pictures were taken over a 45-minute span):
Many times, it starts out like this, in the neck-roll position
But sometimes it starts out like this
Which then leads to this
Which results in this
And sometimes, we even have some of this going on
Sam, Sis, Bruiser, GiGi
We love our funny little babies.
