Upside Down

Joey loves to sleep on his back. Of course that sentence would be just as true if it ended with the word 'sleep.' I can now easily gauge how boring or interesting I am being by his level of consciousness. Here he is considering a nap, but I am willing to intermittently rub his belly so he's holding off. I took the picture upside down 'cause he looked so hilarious. Its like he's jumping up and laying down at the same time. He also looks like he's smiling. I like that. He often has a serious, steady look -see the Halloween photo- and we watch the tail wag (tiny blur) to assess his excitement. Right now he is curled up on the couch waiting for me to do something more interesting than type at the clicky-shiny thing and take him for a walk.
Gotta go!

Cone Free!

Yes the cone is gone. He is feeling much better and I am so happy to see my whole dog! It was weird to have to choose between his head or his body. This is his shirt. It isn't a costume, but it is what he wore for Halloween. I thought we might be decorating his cone like a flower of something. This was much nicer! He loved seeing all the kids. He got lots of petting and admiration, and yet his ego seems relatively uneffected. We were relieved to notice that he isn't too interested in chocolate. I guess its not too surprising, since the candies we handed out didn't smell like the inside of a chicken or the back of another dog. Small blessings I guess!
