These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

19 02 2010

To cap off this week’s love fest, I’m writing a post about a few of the things Hamlet loves best – his favorites.  I call them his loves because they are the things that, as of late, seem to give him the greatest joy (other than just hanging out with me all the time, of course).

Fellow Boston Terrier owners will recognize some of these as tried and true favorites while others may be new to the pack.  In no particular order, I give you Hamlet’s favorites.

1.  Snoozin’ in the sunshine.  Indoors or outdoors, this is a perennial favorite.

Sunning on the balcony.

2.  Foot fighting and foot hunting.  This involves attacking human feet on a whim.  Feet in fuzzy leopard slippers – yes, please!  Feet that just came home after being at work for 10 hours – check!  Feet under a blanket or covering of any kind – he’ll stalk them like a lion on the savannah and pounce on them just the same.

Going in for the kill.

Putting his back into it.

Under the covers? All the better to dig at.

Devil dog never stops!

3.  The blue blanket at the foot of the bed.

4.  Sleeping under a blanket or any cover (pillows, laundry, he’s not choosy) available.  Yes, I realize the blue blanket is being used twice but Hamlet reeeeeally loves it so it should count double.

Where's Waldo, I mean, the Boston Terrier?

5.  Licking whatever human appendages come within a foot of his face, especially my fingers and – weird alert! – elbows.  Because of this another nickname has been added to the list – Lickyloo.

"How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a human finger?"

Really concentrating on his form.

Reckless abandon!

6.  Playing with his stuffed animal dog, Black Dog.  We came up with the incredibly creative and original name Black Dog because Hamlet’s original stuffed dog was red and was appropriately dubbed Red Dog.  I believe Black Dog is a Rottweiler and most of the time Hamlet throws him around, tries to tear out his eyes, and shakes him violently in what I can only assume is an attempt to break his neck.  However, during this photo opportunity they were nothing but best buddies.

Good sit, Black Dog.

Getting a little more comfortable...

Potentially the cutest thing you've ever seen.

It doesn't get much more snuggly than this.

Gather round, it’s sharing time.  What are some of your dog’s favorite things?  They can be activities, toys, sleeping positions, or whatever comes to mind.  So spill the kibble.
