It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

Things that go Bump on the Stairs

This morning I was sitting at the computer when I heard an odd "clunk" on the stairs. Investigation yielded this scene.

Evidently Sage was attempting to climb over Denali, asleep on the step. But seeing as he doesn't really know where his back legs are, he missed the step and is now sort of...well, stuck. It is hard to tell from this angle, but his left leg is actually back behind him, frog dog style, resting on Denali's back, while his tail drapes artistically over her neck.

In an attempt to act casual, he started licking the carpet. Sure, that will divert my attention.

Seeing as I didn't go away, and am still taking pictures, he continues to act like this position was part of his plan.

Only when Denali decides she's had enough, and moves away, is Sage's leg free to use for support once more. Sigh...he is the sweetest, most adorable puppy ever, but he definitely does NOT have a career on Dancing with the Stars in his future!
