Four Legs

Fritz is 10 months old.

It’s true, Fritz sometimes sounds like Chewbacca crossed with an angry seagull, and yes, it’s also true that he thinks sofa cushions are just scrumptious, but I love him. So much. Yesterday he spent about 6 hours happily and snoozily curled up in a down-filled pillow that he had turned into a little nest. What a life! He really is a great dog.

p.s. He used to be so little! And he has always looked good with cerise.

    how sweet. my puppy prefers the opposite and can’t get comfortable on the sofa until he has thrown all of the pillows on the floor.

    He is the cutest. Someone asked me today what I did yesterday. It was so cold here in Boston. I happily informed them that I spent all day yesterday relaxing and cuddling with my animals. They really do make a day so wonderful and a house a home. Thank you for sharing the pictures. Oh so adorable.

    anna, that second picture is absolutely killing me. i love how they make their own little sleeping nooks out of pretty much anything. is he a digger?. alfie will dig on pretty much anything for large amounts of time until he deems it perfectly comfortable. happy 11 month birthday to wee fritz!.

    Happy birthday Fritz! My what a heartbreaker you’ve become–so handsome! Your humans are so lucky to gaze on your cuteness and smell your sweet puppy warmness each and every day. You had my heart from Day One! Here’s wishing you many more happy years.

    Too cute! My dog also like to curl up in a pillow. We actually have his pillow in an old suitcase we converted to a dog bed. He LOVES it!

    He’s just the cutest! we have a really bad case of wanting to get a dog, just worried what the cat will say about it.

    Makes me want to find my own pink pillow to curl up in!

    What a cutie.

    Fritz is a doll. He makes me miss my dogs, who live with my parents.

    But am I the only one who is thinking…more Bruno love, please! I love that little guy!

    That is so funny how Fritz made that pillow his bed and yes, he does look great with that color. Good choice Fritz.
