A New Handle

The new little pug earned his blog name yesterday.
He gets up from a nap and puts his front legs together quite a ways in front of himself and pulls back to stretch as if he is doing Yoga. Then he immediately leans forward on his front legs and stretches his back legs out. He follows this routine faithfully every time he gets up. Yep, Yoga Pup he is.

The Energizer Bunny is feeling quite insecure. She usually sleeps on a blanket in the office when I'm in there. Yoga pup has taken to sleeping at my feet. She sat and blocked his entry under the desk yesterday so he couldn't sleep there. She came and slept at my head last night. Two dogs in bed make for not a very good sleep. The Energizer Bunny is kennel trained and all you have to do is tell her it's bed time and off she goes to her kennel. Yoga pup thinks its just another opportunity to play. Normally he sleeps in the same bedroom as the Energizer Bunny but youngest son is gone for a few days so there is no one for Yoga Pup to snuggle with. So after listening to him howl for an hour I decided I'd let them sleep with me last night. It took them an hour and a half to settle in.

Maybe if I do some yoga stretches I'll gain some energy.
Ya think?

I thought it fit nicely! Too bad they don't have a pup section!

It does fit nicely! Those first few poses are exactly what yoga pup does.

Yoga does wonders!

Wonder if Yoga pups also follow Richard Simmons "High Speed" stuff?

Wonder if he's still around?

Not wondering TOO much, ya know.

I think it's amazing what we'll do and put up with for our pets.

God's creatures - got to love them.

If ya follow Yoga-Pup activity in morning, ya can follow Energizer Bunny's all the rest of the day?

Just HAD to double dip--hope there's no rules against that -grin!

I do sleep with two pugs, they have learned to settle in and within about 15 minutes we're settled, our third sleeps on a sectional that we moved to the bedroom so he could be close (talk about what we will do for those we love LOL).

She will vie for dominance, and she will most likely win, our girl is the dominant in the house with the other two begrudgingly following her lead...

Many hugs
