Dog tired

September 26, 2012

So for this week’s Gallery Tara Lara wanted us to take a photo at 8pm precisely.

Well at 8pm precisely last night this was the situation on one of our armchairs:

Yoda, fast asleep, his paws over his nose, on his favourite cushions (which were actually bought for the garden chairs, not him.)

He’s so sweet when he’s asleep and running in his dreams. If only he had stayed like that. Unfortunately, at 3am, he started barking through the cat flap at the foxes next door.

    […] Still, there were some really stunning displays. Here are my favourite gardens – in particular, the Tolkien-themed garden created by the Library of Birmingham, part of the Birmingham City Council’s display. And the winning Antipodean-inspired Trailfinders garden, with its waterfalls and tree ferns ( it still makes me sad that our Tasmanian tree fern only lasted two years). This is exactly the kind of garden I’d like to create in our green space, if I had the time, and er… money. And we didn’t have a dog. […]

    So cute when animals dream, it’s like when babies dream and you wonder what on earth they can possibly have going through their minds! Yoda was probably dreaming of scaring foxes though!

    Haha, I have a cat that pulls exactly that pose IN MY SEAT just as I’m about to flop down for the evening. Ratbag!

    Lovely dog! I love watching my dog dream. I love it when he barks in his sleep. Sounds weird!

    Ok, the BEST name for a dog EVER! I love the photo, he is too cute! (also made me laugh that he was up at three barking at foxes)

    Our dog conks out about 8pm but also has a habit of jerking awake at any unusal sounds, terrifying anyone within his vicinity! Why do dogs do this, drives me nuts!! cute photo though 😉

    Two points. 1. Today! What a great name. And 2. That paw over his face is just too cute. Cute enough to almost forgive his 3am barking possibly!

    Ha ha, oh dear. Barking at the foxes next door through the cat flap.

    Our lurcher is also often on foxwatch at 3am. It’s tiring isn’t it?
