i think it’s been a while since harry popped up on our blog . . . that said, he really hasn’t been doing too much this super hot & sticky summer, aside from assuming all sorts of positions of relaxation inside where there’s air conditioning!
one of my favorites! he seems to be saying in that photo: “yeah…i’m sleeping…what do you want?”
he’s a total mess here! (but very comfortable!)
one of the few photos where i caught him truly passed out…moments later he entered REM with feet twitching and strange little doggy sounds emitting.
harry turned 1 (finally) a few weeks back. we haven’t had a chance to weigh him in a while, but we think he’s probably past the 25 lb mark. W thinks he weighs closer to 30 lbs.
we gave harry a bath over the weekend as well. and after some pruning and primping with a comb, he starts to look awfully fluffy!!! i don’t think he likes the puffy frou frou look. as soon as we take him outside after a bath, he insists on rolling around on the ground, probably so as to de-pouf himself.
here’s another view of clean and fluffy harry:
about 2 weeks ago, harry started to pee on his bed. not once but twice! by the 2nd time, i figured it was b/c i wasn’t able to get the odor out of his old bed, and hence he decided that it made for a good latrine. i ended up tossing out the old bed and ordered a new one from harry barker. they make the most gorgeous dog accessories, and they’re all very well made and sturdy! plus, they were having a sale, which made harry’s toile bed a ‘eck of a lot more affordable.
harry seems to be enjoying his new bed. or at least, as soon as he climbed on board, he didn’t leave it for several hours. he hasn’t peed on the new bed in the last several weeks. i’ll take that as a sign of approval!
remember that snow storm we had in the middle of january? well hubs and i got up bright and early that saturday morning and dragged harry out to experience his first snow fall. he seemed a bit apprehensive about the stuff at first, but then discovered that it was a lot of fun! we’re pleased to report that harry’s natural snow shoe paws work great in the snow. he didn’t seem to be cold at all and dragged us along, as hubs and i tried to avert slipping in falling in our clunky snow boots.
after a good romp in the virgin snow in the dog park near us, we took a short stroll to soho. that’s a snow covered harry waiting for us to feed him some pastry from dominique ansel’s bakery.
he looks a bit disheveled, doesn’t he?
harry had kind of a rough new year’s eve . . . i found him hiding underneath our bed early on new year’s morning . . . he wants to wish you a happy and healthy 2012! really, he does!
