I am a lab of many talents. I can catch frisbees in the air, retrieve balls like a pro, play the piano and horn, and do all kinds of other tricks. But I'm most proud of my snuggling/cuddling ability. According to Mom -- who is a great judge of snuggliness -- I am the best snuggler EVER. Labs are affectionate by nature, and Mom has known a lot of labs, but she says I'm the most affectionate dog she's ever known!
On a rainy/sleety January Saturday such as today, there is nothing better than to cuddle up with Mom on the couch while she reads or does computer stuff. I generally like to be in her lap (all 65 pounds of me!) and she loves it when I fall asleep and start having one of my otter-chasing dreams while in her lap. My big paws will twitch and I'll let out cute little yips and other strange high-pitched noises that sound nothing like dog noises. Mom says sometimes I make a noise like a horse whinnying (okay, so I like to dream that I'm a horse -- horses are amazing creatures), and sometimes I make sounds like a newborn puppy whose eyes are still closed desperately looking for his mommy's milk bar. Sometimes I even growl in my dreams!
Of course the fact that I'm also one of the cutest doggies EVER makes everyone want to snuggle with me.
Don't these photos make you want to snuggle with me?
