A Day In The Life Of A Happy, Happy Boston

The dog is usually the last one up in the morning. He will often stay in bed for a while, snuggled under our covers, after my partner & I have both gotten up. This morning I pulled the blankets off of him to be greeted with a sound which can only be described as the sighing of an old man.

After going outside for a little walk, Winston chose to spend his morning chasing the sun across the kitchen floor. He started near the bedroom door & followed the patches of sunlight til they were hiding near the kitchen table.



I left his sweater on after his morning outing because he just seemed so cozy (& I think that he looks rather dapper in red).

When the sun was no longer situated in convenient patches on the floor, Winston perched in the window of whatever room I happen to be in. He likes to be near me & is always curious about what I'm doing. Right now he is watching me type, as he sits in the window of the office on a little red blanket, behind the purple curtains that I put up the other day.

Soon my partner will be home & the peace will be shattered for a moment while Winston launches a full scale invasion at the front door, armed with a licking tongue, happy barks & an excited jumping frenzy will ensue. Most of this insanity is my fault since I will admit to telling Winston that "daddy's coming home" so that he listens for the door to open. However, I really do think that my boy enjoys the welcoming party when he gets home from work.

Wouldn't you?

Would I like the welcome party of an excitable, hair, licking creature?! Sounds all too familar for me :p But I can just imagine months ahead to when your boy will be welcomed home not only by Winston, but by a little chubby, bright-eyed daughter and a beutiful partner. Lucky indeed!

I just love this dog! We don't have a dog and will never have one and that makes me so sad. Winston looks like a wonderful friend!

And he does look dapper!

Beth: Dogs are wonderful -- lots of work, and sometimes are too hard to have in the family -- but I couldn't imagine him not being around. Sometimes I call him my 'first born' and I keep reminding him that he's going to be a 'big brother' soon!

Heart Felt: I would certainly recommend a Boston! Such loyal, loving family dogs! Oh, and I'm feeling pretty fabulous actually ^_^ Hopefully it's just a few more days!
