Clingy Dogs

That's exactly how the kids have been since we got home late Sunday afternoon .... clingy! You would've think we went away for a week, not just 2 nights! And yes, yes... I will get to blogging about Kennebunk later this week, but today is devoted to Dogs on Thursday........

I forgot to take pics of the gorgeous painted pumpkins at the kids' boarding place (they had doggies painted on them of course), but I did snap one of this fall display on the way out...

Four happy, pooped puppies {click links for more new pics} on their way home....

If you haven't guessed it yet, Lola is the most clingy.... and needy. She needs to be near her humans as much as possible... she stresses easily and will whine loudly, which our vet calls "expressive." That's her sleepy head ... closest to Mommy & Daddy {if you're clicking the links, that's a Kennebunk preview} in the car...

Sophie didn't drool as much in the car this time (yeah!) and we were thrilled when she actually jumped up to get in - the first time ever! I think she's finally starting to learn from her big brother Zeus that car rides can be fun (just look at that big grin on his face....)!

Now... I can't believe I'm actually going to share this morning picture of me with you, but I just have to show you how I spent my Monday morning...

That's three doggies all crammed as close to the sun spot Mommy as possible! I think Tut was the last one to get up and wedge himself in... which is one of his annoying habit (wedging himself in to spots he really can't fit, just to be close)! ... "The more people I meet, the more I love my dogs........." so true... its complete and unconditional love!

I'll leave you with a little Kennebunk preview...

Precious, precious babies... Sissy is a whiner too. I'm hoping her new sister will make her a better car-rider...

I love the pics of the puppehs!! Zeus always looks likes he's having a grand ol time, such a handsome boy!! I'm sure they were delighted to be riding home with their family. Charlotte is my needy one and she's wherever I am which makes me feel special too.
Looking forward to the vacation pics!

Diamond is very clingy and whiny of Cal. And I might add jealous, she tries to move me out of the way!
Looks like you all had a wonderful time!

I just love the morning picture of you and your babies. There's nothing like giving them a gentle reminder from time to time of how good they actually it at home!

Abby is a big whiner and Lucy talks. Seriously. Mine aren't generally allowed on the furniture, we have dog beds in everyroom. but they are always in the same room we are.

The do help each other get used to the car. Makes life eventually nicer. Glad you had a good getaway. Sorry humanity is disappointing. Glad you have the doggles to help make it better. g

My hat is off to you (no pun intended)
I thought I was crazy with 5 dogs last year, now down to 3 but would have a house full.
Love your pics.
