Sleepy Poses

Hey everypup, Tasha here. We're a little slow with this post, but we thought that we would do a sleeping pose entry. In the picture below I am multi-tasking. Sleeping and guarding the front door. Dad said that when he took this picture, I was woofing quietly and my feet were twitching. Even when I'm sleeping I'm practicing on my squirrel and rabbit chasing!
Here's Eva sleeping in one of her favorite spots. She says she sleeps there to keep the couch in place. If she isn't here while the humans are sitting on the couch she is usually sitting between dad's feet to be sure she doesn't miss out on any attention. Good plan, little sister!

Below is Eva at about 6 months old. There's nothing better on a hot day than to get out of the house and lay down for a nap in the nice, cool grass!
The next two pictures have some furry friends that you haven't meet before. The black pup is Tia. She came to live with us in December of 1998 and she was a German Shepard-black lab mix. In this picture we also had a cat named Lola. Unfortunately Tia went to the Rainbow Bridge due to cancer in December of 2003. Lola didn't like Eva when she moved in with us and started peeing all over the house so she went to a new family. We're not really sleeping in this picture, but I thought it was a good picture.
This last picture of Tia is from when she first came to live with us. She was my first puppy! We had lots of fun together and I miss her. Dad really misses her mostly because she died at only 5 years old. This is his favorite picture of her as a puppy. We'll post a little more of Tia's pictures sometime soon.
Rest in Peace Little One.

Good job sleeping and guarding the door at the same time, Tasha - those are two very important responsibilities!

Tia's beautiful! So sad that she left you after only 5 years. She's not really "gone" though; she's just waiting for you over there.

Hugs, Sitka (and Tia)

What a wonderful refuge home to be able to spend time with. So sorry to hear of the earlier passing of your loves than would be hoped - but ow wonderful to have been able to share time - no matter how short or what ending the time had.

What a beautiful pup Tia was! You must miss her a lot!
You girls have great sleepy poses! Like Tasha, I love sleeping by the front door! Aren't those side windows great for look-out duty!?!?
Play bows,

Love the door guarding sleepy pose. Samuel does that a lot at our house.

How sad about Tia, and so young! You will be together again one day.

I got to meet another dog this weekend in Indiana who looked just like Eva, but was a boy. He was part of the dog training session and was VERY smart (much like you two I bet!)

Sleeping is the best and you do it very very very very very well.
