How've You Been?

I chose this picture carefully to illustrate how comfy and cozy everyone is this winter. This picture also symbolizes that I feel kicked in the head a lot lately.

Drive has been working overtime in his position as my personal mental health practitioner. He's sticking closer than usual, poking my hand to be petted more often, and has reduced the amount of time he spends lying on my bed and crying because he isn't being hand-fed.

I've wondered if the dogs get affected by these winter blahs. They seem a little needier, but they also seem a little more responsive to my own increased need for shoring up.

This week, I have been extra grateful for my dogs. This week they held me up again.

Join us on the Pet Blog Hop! If this is your first time here, I hope you'll poke around and find the funny stuff. ;)


  1. I know how it feels to need a little furry friends to make the world a bit more manageable. Have a great weekend.

  2. Great job Drive... taking care of da Momma!!! Give her a big hugg for me !!

  3. Hey, here on the hop, lovely blog, lovely pictures. Yes - my greys seem more clingy recently too, and I have been needing those patting sessions too. Greyt to have them! Have a good weekend!

  4. Well, I know that picture sure gave me a big smile! It really is true that they can be a great source of comfort through a lot of things, depression, illness, stress, surgery recovery and a whole host of others. The best part is that they ask nothing from us in return for their services!

    Spring can't get here soon enough for any of us!

  5. Greyt picture. I have a couple of forearm flippers here. It seems easier for us when they can get out in the yard and run, but ya, I have one guy who is really high maintenance right now, but I don't mind.

    Glad your guys are there for you.

  6. Fabulous picture.

    I'm de-stressing my family a lot by encouraging them to stroke and pet me lots and lots.

    Hounds rule.

    Love and licks, Winnie
