[profile] may_lyn  requested some dog photos a while back and I am always happy to pimp out the Trio.

Rosie checking out her kingdom.

Meg on the scent of something exciting or just sniffing some stones

"Look into my eyes", says Jack, "and give me munchies! And your wallet!"

Meg, Jack & Rosie enjoying their bones.

It's nearly as big as Rosie's head. Didn't stop her going to town on it though.

No time for photos, there's munching to be done!

Meg showing her bones who's boss.

Meg eyeing up the soft couch

The middle cushion is different because it's the cushion we got to prevent pressure sores for my grandmother when she sits down, and we put a pillowslip on it to make it more comfortable for her. Any time Momo gets up off the couch, even to go to the bathroom, Jack is in there like shot to lie on it.

Meg playing hide and seek.

Meg guarding the kitchen cupboard where we keep the booze and diet coke. She's the best girl ever!

Rosie and Jack having a bit of rough and tumble.

Happy play fun time. By the noises they make, you'd think they were killing each other, but they know it's not allowed to get out of control and Jack is the best at obeying commands. Quite a change from the bonkers boy who nearly broke my heart six months ago.

Meg enjoying the new bed I bought for her in Dunnes yesterday. It was half price so I got it for ten euro. I ended up buying two of them.

Jack sitting pretty on his favourite chair.

What is this personal space of which you speak? It does not compute.

Come join us on the couch, we totally left you space this time.

My mother and Jack. He's not a clingy dog but from time to time, he feels the need to get some extra close human contact. Unless he's obviously doing it to knock one of the others off our laps or doing a claiming thing, we let him be.

Rosie down the garden this afternoon. She has gotten so good at the sitting and down command. We're very lucky that she's not riddled with insecurities, considering we don't know how she fared before she got to the dogs home last year.

Rosie having a rest while Jack checks out something or other.

Rosie and Meg

Jack in his most favourite spot in the whole wide world. He's a great dog because sometimes when she's sitting up, Momo will lean on him and he's what's holding her up and he doesn't flinch or make a sound. Just stays asleep. She can poke him and prod him all day long and he'll just sleep through it.
Did I tell ye the story about how one day, Momo was sitting up and Jack was lying beside her? And all of a sudden she starts shrieking that he was dead. I mean, really amping the drama from 0 all the way up to 11 in the blink of an eye. I told her he wasn't, that he was asleep and she grabbed him by his collar and started pulling him up and down, up and down, really roughly, yelling "HE'S DEAD, I TELL YOU, HE'S DEAD!!!" I replied "for fuck's sake, stop pulling at the dog!!". Yes, I swore but I was afraid he might go for her or something. I mean, if I were fast asleep and someone woke me by grabbing and pulling at my neck, they'd be lucky if all I did was bite them. But all he did was move closer to her, move his head on her lap as best he could and go back to sleep and she let him go. Then he farted and Momo yelled that she was being poisoned and had I made the fart. I forbore from informing her that having a stoma makes it impossible for me to do that and just replied in the negative. Then she got bored and fell back asleep.
Since getting shingles in May though, she's got no interest in talking like that anymore. She's tired a lot and that makes her cranky. Sometimes it's like she's uncomfortable in her own skin and she'll say she has pains in her bones. No doubt she does. It's hard to see her like that sometimes and not being able to fix it for her. She has a strong heart, that's what's keeping her going we reckon.

Thank you. God help me, it's hard to chastise them sometimes when they look up with those faces!

I actually haven't yet. I wanted to watch all of the new series before I did. :) I'm enjoying geeking out about it though. Your dogs are gorgeous though. I'm so jealous.
