Our Two Weird Dogs

Elmer and Buford are good dogs. Really, they are. But they're weird! They're pretty entertaing and I sometimes manage to snap pictures of their weirdness.

The other day I was in the basement walking on the treadmill (yes, I do believe Hell did freeze over!), and I brought Buford down with me so I could keep an eye on him. I gave him a rawhide bone to keep him busy, and I put the baby gate at the bottom of the stairs so Elmer couldn't come down. Elmer was pretty upset about it, so he camped out on the steps to be as close as possible. Looks comfy, right? Not so much.

I don't really think Elmer feels things like steps in his side. I caught him napping in the sunshine between the kitchen and dining room, and I don't even think he cared he was laying on the step down.

And yesterday I saw him napping on the couch, resting his chin on the coffee table. He was sound asleep.

And Buford....he loves apples. We bought a bushel and a half of apples a few weeks ago, and they're sitting in bags on the mud room floor. Buford has decided they make good snacks, so now and then he'll go in and grab one.

Elmer is always curious about the apples, but he hasn't figured out how to get one for himself.

He makes short work of them!

He's a good puppy...most of the time. :-)

Brotherly love...

And Scooter loves Buford, but only when he's sleeping.

Scooter got some custom made non-slip booties today. I'll show you how I made them in another post.

Oh Elmer!! LOL He cracks me up with the positions he thinks are comfortable. His nap with his head on the coffee table is the funniest thing! Buford the apple eating dog is too cute! What a healthy snack and you don't have to figure out what to do with all those apples! LOL Buford is getting so big!
What great doggies you have, Kate.

I love your funny pooches. Such characters.

Our girls love apples and carrots as snacks. They jump up to pull off the crab applesfrom the tree. Pooches are so cute. Complete opposites.

How cute are those pups, Katie! I am so happy you have them both! It's always good to have goofy animals around you so you can laugh at their antics. Buford is just too cute! Love, Momma
