Ari loves her kids, both big and small. She continues to be a conscientious caretaker, when she wants to be. And no one is more committed to ending horseplay or encouraging horseplay than she is and she will let us know it. In so many ways she is still the energetic loving pup she was when she first came to us over eight years ago. But she is getting older, as much as she refuses to admit it. Who of us wants to admit to getting older, right? In dog years she is older than I am so she must be feeling some aches and pains from time to time, especially trying to keep up with two energetic boys!
But if the truth be told, Ari’s favorite state of mind is snoozing while she basks in the sun. She especially searches out those sun spots as days get cooler. And once she has located a cozy place in the sun, it’s only a matter of time before she drifts off to sleep.
When I saw the Ragtag Daily Prompt- Bask, the photo above came to mind immediately. And then Fandango’s One Word Challenge- Snooze appeared in my feed and that sealed the deal. I dug the photo out of the archives.
And let’s face it- isn’t Saturday the perfect day to bask and snooze?
