Puppy Love

(It's really sad how long I've been blogging and I'm just now figuring out how to post more than one picture at a time. My mom says she learns just by clicking on things. I've got to get better at that.)

Pirate Baby was having his tummy time. Generally, he hates it and will cry most of the time. For some reason, this time he was perfectly content to lay on his tummy and study the world from floor level.

But Pirate Puppy (I've REALLY got to get around to finding better dog pirate names) has serious issues with people being on the floor. I think he finds it completely wrong and doesn't quite know what to do when that happens.

Combine his floor/people neurosis with his complete obsession with Pirate Baby and you get the pictures I've got here.

We got a really cute picture frame as a baby gift, and I've been trying to figure out what would be a good shot to go in the frame. I've seen family pictures with everyone on the floor before and thought this would be a good time to do that. Kind of hard to do with a dog in the middle of things!

For the record, I did get a couple of good ones of my two cute kiddos together.

Without the dog.

These are cute pictures!

Someone told me once that some dogs think of the floor as their territory, so that if a person suddenly sits or crawls on the floor (which is unusual if you're not a kid) it can upset the dog, because it's like you are invading their territory.

In your case, since it's just your family doing it, maybe pirate puppy thinks you guys are either sick when you're on the floor, or perhaps it's an issue of wondering if you guys are still in charge or not, when you are on the dog's level. Who knows. Kind of funny. :-)

I think in his case it's more of an issue of "You're on the floor! Must mean it's time to wrestle!" :)

Lol! Yeah, I can see that! Play time!
