Round Robin Challenge: Silly Animals

The latest Round Robin Photo Challenge is “Silly Animals.”

I’m a dog person. Always have been, always will be. I’ve found that dogs can be a lot like people, especially when they’re sleeping. No one has to show them what a pillow is for: they’re smart enough to have figured that one out on their own with no assistance at all. And if you let them, they’ll take yours happily.

A couple of months after I adopted Zoey, I walked into the bedroom and saw her taking a nap. She was beginning to reach the point of understanding that she was in her “forever home,” as animal shelters like to call it, and was getting more and more comfortable.

She had sprawled out across a body pillow almost as if she had been trying to attain some kind of dramatic effect, and I couldn’t resist snapping her picture. The animal shelter I adopted her from got a copy and they ended up running it in a “success stories” column in their newsletter.

My parents taught me at an early age to love animals, and they’ve always had pets themselves. Their current inside dog is Jesse, who likes to twist himself into odd shapes resembling question marks. I caught him in one of his familiar sleeping positions, comfortably zonked. Even the flash didn’t wake him up!

These photos made me smile ear to ear! They are all wonderful photos, but I think I like the one of Zack the best. He looks like such a sweet doggie and all of them like as if they smile when they sleep. They are happy puppies...I can tell. :)

Always, Carly :)

Oh, I love these! Can't even pick a favorite.

Funny thing, though - I've had at least one dog (Jenny) who refused to have anything to do with pillows. I'm glad these three appreciate such things.
