By Dylan Da Dog

Now I can explain this picture and I would immediately draw your attention to the expression on Simba’s face. He is positively blissful! I think I was keeping him warm, although to be honest that was not my intention.

Over the Christmas, Simba had taken to sleeping on MY rocking chair (well Barbara thinks its hers – but it is actually mine). For a couple of days I tried sitting on the floor staring up at him to make him move. But that didn’t work and so I decided to take more direct action and climb up and sit on him. That kindof backfired though, as he seemed to like it! So it is now a race to see who gets the rocking chair first!

I did get some walks in over Christmas and boy was it very cold. There was nothing like coming home to find the fire lit and the glow of some candles and I could snuggle up on the sofa with my other pal, Pasqua!

Hope your Christmas was as good as mine!
Barbara will be back soon,……. apparently!
Lots of love from

  1. Thanks S. They are funny – I couldnt believe finding Dylan sitting on top of Simba on the chair – and Simba happy out! Although Simba is our huge cat and i think that he was actually too lazy to move! In the end Dylan let him have it!

  2. There really is no accounting for taste in this world! I was sure a good looking dog like you Dylan would do a bit better over the Christmas – you are obviously walking in all the wrong places!
    Happy New Year

  3. Hello Barbara! What a treat to see you on my blog today! Thank you for stopping by.

    This post reminded me of my 16 month puppy and my husband two weeks ago. The Hub fell asleep on the couch, where Weasley normally likes to sleep. Weasley stood in front of the Hub for a few minutes to survey the situation. Then he went to the side and placed his head on the arm rest. I could tell he was dying to get on the couch. Finally he jumped up from the side (which he never does) and pushed his way behind the Hub's legs. Then all was good.

    Gotta make sure the pets are happy!
