We have a few priorities in our home. I would say they rank in importance as follows:
Never run out of dog food.
Never run out of tea bags or sugar (cuz us Southerners drink lots o’ sweet tea).
Never run out of toilet paper (see notes on tea above).
Never ever never let your wiener get cold.
So we keep a fire going for the dogs. They love lounging by the heat source, and we love watching them take turns enjoying it.
My husband argues that they would love it more if they had a bear skin rug to lay on… Somebody save me!
As much as Nigel the wiener loves the fire, Natalie the hound loves it even more.
And if sitting by the fire is good, then surely sitting almost IN the fire would be better, right?
My husband actually snapped these photos as he watched her climbing up towards the fire.
Roasted Basset Hound anyone? Mmmmm, it’s a delicacy I hear.
Don’t worry Natalie, I’m just kidding. We would never serve you roasted…
Everyone knows Basset is only good battered and fried!
I’m kidding people, it’s a joke! We snapped the photo of her and made her get off the hearth. It was just too close for comfort. We even added a screen so she can no longer climb up so close to the fire.
We love our doggies. Nash is already warm I guess, he doesn’t want anything to do with the fire. But he’s sort of permanently fixed in “his” corner of the sofa.
That’s his, “Whatchu lookin’ at”, look.
I hope y’all keep your wieners warm!
