Cuddle Bugs

The one place Lush Puppy and New Puppy cuddle is the sofa. They will snuggle together for hours (or until something catches New Puppy’s attention and she bounces off to investigate), but only on the sofa. Preferably the living room sofa–apparently the basement sofa isn’t as comfortable.

Winter is Coming

New Puppy does not like winter. That look in the picture really says it all. (Never mind that winter has barely started.)

She lived in Abilene KS before she was brought to MN this summer. It doesn’t really get that cold there in the winter, so this past week has been a rude awakening and a rather chilly harbinger of things to come. I’m hoping she’ll be more enthusiastic once there’s actual snow on the ground; Lush Puppy adores playing in the snow, so hopefully he can set a good example.

Thank goodness for winter coats. And boots. And sweaters.
