So we had some lovely weather this weekend and the entire family spent a lot of time playing & working outdoors. (this means mom & dad did a lot of work and baby boys and dogs played!) While we were having one of our outdoor adventures Miss Lilly spotted this strange creature over by some of our flower pots.
Obviously the rest of the family had to come and take a closer look, this resulted in me telling dad to keep Riley away until we know what it is, both the girls running away everytime it flicked its wings and us trying to get some pictures before it flew away!!
I was able to get one more good picture in before all of the commotion scared our friend away…
The girls diligently tried to find it again by going around and searching all of the flowers around the house (some of them were due for a good trampling anyway!) but to no avail! Our winged friend was gone and we are left with the mystery of trying to find out whether it was a butterfly or a moth. What do you think it was? Any insights would be appreciated!!
So this weekend started out as another rainy, stormy one so the girls spent most of their time inside catching up on their sleep. Apparently they need at least 10 hours a night plus several daytime naps in order to stay happy & perky. Now Miss Molly is a straight floor sleeper, doesn’t like furniture or beds to lay on and prefers a nice draft to keep her cool, Miss Lilly is all about comfort and warmth, occasionally they will end up sleeping in sync.
Now this is a rare occurrence I’ve only captured on film a few times. I try not to disturb them when they are this in tune for fear of messing it up! Miss Lilly is my favorite sleeping subject though because she has so many different styles and positions but always manages to sleep through them all!!
So these are just a few of my favorite Basset hound sleeping positions. Do your pets have any strange sleeping habits or positions they like?
So this weekend we went from 70 degrees and sunny, to rain and 50 degrees and then to sleet,snow, hail and 32 degrees, not a good weekend for outdoor fun! So I decided the girls should get a little practice on taking selfies, and being that they don’t have thumbs I had to help them out a little bit…
Miss Lilly got adventurous and took one in the car on the way to pick up dinner…
So that was our exciting weekend, hope you had a good one!!
