A Day in the Life of Mattie and Phoebe
|We'll start with a couple of closeups of the little dumplings. Please ignore the dog hair on the chair. You can tell that I do...|
This is Mattie. She was 2 years old on Nov. 11, 2005. She can be rather silly, but is mostly calm and cuddly. Well... except when somebody comes over. She turns into the "in-your-face" kissy monster then...
Phoebe just had her first birthday on Feb. 5, 2006. She's my little clown. She would have me throwing the ball all day if I let her. She's perky when she wakes up and perky when she goes to bed. Mattie hates perky...
|After their closeups, Phoebe terrorizes Mattie as you can see from Mattie's story below:|
|If I don't look at her, she isn't really there...|
|Oh, no! I see her out of the corner of my eye!|
|Yikes, a sneak attack!!!!|
|Back off, sister!!!|
|Ah, the intimidation is complete! :-)|
|After things calmed down, they decided to play.|
|Decisions, decisions, decisions...|
|First, it's a little tug of war.|
|Then they decided to play like a turtle! Click here for a video!|
|That wore them out, so it's naptime.|
|It's time for a snack. Phoebe finishes her carrot first and Mattie gets into a corner so Phoebe can't steal what's left of hers.|
|It's now time for some grooming. Phoebe likes to clean Mattie's feet. Did you know that Boston Terrier feet smell like Fritos?|
|I learned a lesson... NEVER call your dog after they've headed for the back door! You just might find something like this! :-( Phoebe almost made it to the back door before I called her too! :-O|
|It's time for a trip to the dog park. Phoebe wasn't sure how to handle the guy who had a crush on her and looked to her mommy for guidance. Mommy was too busy taking pictures to help...|
|Phoebe decided that she had to bark at this guy for some reason. He's a really nice guy and has bostons himself so go figure...
I love the foamy mouth! <g>
|Phoebe's admirer decided to stalk Mattie instead.|
|After a busy day, it's jammie time.|
Note: These pictures weren't actually taken during one 24 hour time period. They just sorta show what one of their days might be like. I thought I'd better confess because some people might notice that the rug appears and disappears. <g>
