Saturday Snicker: Another Daddy Nappy Noodle

Rugby is the original snuggle pup.  He absolutely is!  For years, all of my previous dogs have been dogs who enjoyed being affectionate with me, but Rugby takes it to a whole new level!  He’s a Velcro dog, and he just can’t get close enough when he wants a snuggle or a nap….or more often than not…..a “snuggle nap.”  He’s great at multi-tasking naps with snuggles, and those are his very favorite types of naps!  He enjoys a good pretzel nap if a snuggle nap is not readily available, but if he can find a snuggle buddy, he’s all in!

Over the recent holiday, Michael was home for the afternoon, and he loves sneaking in an afternoon nap when he can.  He’s always enjoyed naps on the floor, where the surface is hard, and his back can get a good flat surface.

You can just imagine the delight that Rugby feels when he sees his Daddy settle on the floor for a nice afternoon nap! He comes running….all four paws excitedly headed toward the object of his good fortune.

I was able to capture this recent nappy noodle in its various stages, and so I present that photo montage to you….for your giggling pleasure on an otherwise boring Saturday!!  Enjoy a Saturday snicker from Rugby James!

This was the moment that Michael had laid down and Rugby climbed into his favorite spot!!

 

He was looking a bit pensive, because he knew that I was lurking with my camera phone!

 

He tolerated the first close up photo….

 

But quickly let me know how he really felt about this photo shoot! Rugby often pouts when he realizes that I’m taking photos, and those ears tell me how he really feels about it!

 

As he settled into his nap, he got into one of his favorite napping positions, a tight curl with his snoot poked down into his fluffy tail.  He always enjoys using his Daddy’s legs or bum as his pillow for propping up his head!

 

Before long, he morphed into a sprawled nap, working into his “sunny side up” position!

 

When Rugby gets into a deeper sleep, he often opens his mouth, and since he’s lacking most of his front teeth, I’m always treated to a little bit of a tongue out photo, which I absolutely love!!

These are the sweet moments that I always cherish so much with Rugby.  He’s really such a dear little dog, and it’s such a blessing to me to share this side of him with the world!

      It's amazing that he was chill enough to let me do it!! The montage was done over probably an hour or so, and I tried to snap a photo when he moved into a new position. It's just the cutest thing when Michael lays on the floor and Rugby comes running and just plops in the same spot every single time!! Those are such very special memories to me! Dear to my heart for sure! <3
