You know what I love most about her? Waking up to this:
Sometimes she jumps into bed, sometimes she props her chin over the edge and starts whining. Whatever the case, it's my second-favorite way to wake up (the first being in a tent on a mountain).
Puppydog also has a knack for being photogenic. She takes up a variety of poses to look cute. There's her lazy pose:
And her upside-down, I'm a total nutcase pose:
And sometimes, if I'm not waking up (or pretending to be asleep), she'll sit by my window and patiently wait. When I took this particular picture, she was staring outside for 20 minutes:
But best of all, she likes to be my editor. When I was revising the fourth draft of Embassy, I went downstairs for a moment -- then came back and found her diligently working on my book for me:
As you can see, Puppydog and I are pals. We have a nice round of tug-o-war every day and play hide-and-seek (THAT gets intense). But what's her favorite thing to do?
Lay by the fire and sleep.
