The Boys Have Taken to Their Bed



Oh bless their hearts...they are so pitiful...I took a suitcase out of the closet this morning and started packing some things...Camden's birthday presents and the "Mamie came to see you treats"...guess where I'm going....I'm off in the morning to spend 9 days with my kids...and the boys are sooooooo exhausted from following me around, checking the suitcase, looking in the closet for another suitcase. They're pooped and they're not talking to me.  Andy's staying here with them, so they're thinking he's their best friend right now.  I'll check in while I'm gone..I'll be busy with TBall games for Hampton and Camden's 3rd birthday, school visits, trips to the library, zoo, science center, the park and whatever else we can get into 9 days.  I couldn't be any more excited, even though the boys aren't.

Could they be any closer...they really aren't happy if they're not touching...until Howie with the black collar gets too hot and he has to get up and sit under the fan for a bit. 
Oh they just make us laugh.

Those "boys" are too funny.
What a grand time it sounds like you will have building memories with the grandkids!

Karen said...

Sweet pic! I have two yellow labs too, that do that as well. And now we have a cat that snuggles right in there with them. Love the dog bed. I'd love to make something like that for mine.

Barb said...

Sooo funny....

Have fun with your visit!

Sue said...

Those are some of the prettiest dogs. What a sweet picture of them. That is just precious.

I hope you have a wonderful time away visiting your grandkids. Be safe and enjoy yourself!

Cathy said...

Dogs are funny! I don't know what we did for entertainment before we got our dog Reggie.

JCnNC said...

Do they ever look up at you as if to say - please cut the fan on for me. My Casey girl does that. Have fun and the boys will be so happy when you return. Judy C

Diane said...

Oh my gosh they are too funny! Gotta love 'em.
Have a terrific time with those kiddos-hope the time doesn't fly-wishful thinking I know.

Libby said...

Oh, just pitiful *s*

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

Our dogs knew that when we brought up the suitcases than a trip was imminent ... and would get nervous, following close by our side. I always wondered if they thought that if they stuck especially close to us, perhaps we'd take them along with us.

What fun you're going to have with your grands! Have a safe trip and wonderful time!

Diane said...

Ooh, have a great trip! Won't it be wonderful?
Our cat jumps into our open suitcases like he thinks he can come along. He doesn't realize we leave him home on purpose...

Karen said...

Have a ball, the boys will forgive you when you get home :)!

Stephanie said...

They are adorable. You'll be having fun with little ones and the mister will have fun with the Big ones.

How sweet are they?? And isn't it something how they DO know you're going somewhere? Have a great trip and I'll bet they'll be looking for treats when you come home! :-)

Thimbleanna said...

What sweet dogs! They look so cute lying on their bed. Have a wonderful time with the grandbabies!

Shakerwood said...

They look just like my labs when I pull out the suitcase (except mine are chocolates). Pouting on one bed together because Mommy is leaving. But they give wonderful kisses and tail wags when we get home, don't they?

annieb said...

Oh, so cute! Our dog hides when the suitcases come out. Have a wonderful visit.

Cheryl said...

Nothing like trying to put a guilt trip on mom :-)!!...your boys are so sweet laying there together. I am so excited about your trip..there are going to be tons of grammie hugs for sure

Karen said...

Good for you planning the trip to see the kids. You need that. I am sure it will be very good Grandma time with them.

Darlene said...

Oh, they are too funny!!! Poor pitiful souls. LOL

I'm so excited that you're going to spend time with the big and little people. Exactly what you need. :-)

Have fun, fun, fun.

Allie said...

Oh those poor pitiful puppies!!! That's too funny! Have a wonderful time hon!

Stitched With Prayer said...

Oh Carol, have a delightful visit, enjoy every single day!!! Your post made me laugh AND cry. Just like your boys, whenever our suitcases come out, one of our furbabies goes into seclusion in her kennel (it doesn't have a door on it) it has been her 'hidey hole' ever since we got her from and abusive home, so we nixed the door because we didn't ever want her to feel locked up. As for her sister, well, first she has to see that we make all of our arrangements correctly and the packing is all done to her satisfaction and only then does she put on her 'poor pitiful Friskie' face, and also takes to her bed. They do bring so much love, laughter and joy into our homes and hearts, don't they. I cried, simply because I have been doing so for the last couple of weeks off and on. Our little supervisor, Frisky, now 11 years old, is fading fast from cancer, but is not suffering or in any bad pain that the vet can detect. She's eating well, bounces around on her thinning little legs like a baby bunny when she wants a treat or to play. We try to keep her quiet but THAT is torture for her, so we decided to let her be her active over protective self as long as she is able. But the vet warned us, we are only talking about a few weeks here. Hence, the tears. BUT, they are always followed by laughter when she bounces into the room to check on things. Well, nuff said, once again sweet Carol, have a super trip and love on those kiddos as much as possible in 9 days. Big Hugs...

Me and My Stitches said...

The boys are beautiful. My cats always get a little testy when the suitcases come out too. Funny how smart they are. I'm sure they will miss you terribly - but you have a wonderful trip, and we expect to see lots of pictures when you get back!

Josie McRazie said...

How cute are they! My dogs have to be RIGHT where the action is! I think they are always the first to know hwat is going on in this house!

Melanie said...

Inseparable--- there's nothing like the loyalty of pups... People could learn alot form that...Have a ball---

Pat from Florida said...

Too funny! I remember them at the shop. Have a super visit! Our pups don't like to see suitcases coming out either!

Michele said...

They are really sweet!! Enjoy your fun trip :-)

I just love it when you share these boys and I love how they snuggle with each other - to sweet. When we were packing for Hawaii - Cami got into our suitcase and snuggled in for a nap lol - she knew we were leaving and figured she should go to - they just know don't they.

Hugs - karen
