Lazy days

Well, it looks like it's been a few weeks now since I said "stayed tuned." Here's my excuse: I'm lazy.

Actually, all the boys are lazy. Here's an example. Dempsey's sister Angel was visiting earlier this month.

Angel had a lot of fun, but Dempsey was a lazy player. Angel will keep playing till you kennel her, but Dempsey is happy to nap even if his favorite sister is running around.

And even when they play, Dempsey is lazy. Dempsey, you may recall, likes to play tug by being a dead weight and letting his playmate do all the tugging. On this trip, Angel decided to try Dempsey's strategy.

As you can see, it's not much fun when both puppies are a dead weight. But does Dempsey do anything about it? Nooooo. Even if it's no fun just lying around, Dempsey still waits for Angel to get up and start tugging.

Dempsey's not always the laziest boy in the house. Exhibit B is Buddy.

We've bought Buddy a bunch of toys, but there's only one that he likes, which is getting pretty ratty and frayed. We're reluctant to spend more money on toys Buddy would reject, so we decided to try making him a toy: Brain on a stick. Apparently, Doreen and I are not the only ones unimpressed with the free stuff they give away nowadays at medical conventions.

So there you have it. Now, back to the usual lounging around.

  1. Hi ya! Those videos made us giggle! Love the froggy legs sliding on the floor during the 'tug' game. The last shot is fantastic too :)
