After twenty years of living with Corgis, Rugby’s napping styles never cease to make me smile! Corgis are such heavily muscled, long backed dogs, that they can’t physically fold into a lot of positions. Rugby is long and lean, and has legs like a gazelle! One minute he’s tightly curled into a ball with his floofy tail flipped up over his snoot so that only his chocolate drop eyes are visible through the mess of furry speckles and spots.
The next minute, he’s sleeping all sprawled out….stretched out as long as he can possibly be….long legs splayed out all over the place like they have minds of their own! (See last week’s Saturday Snicker: Olympic Pretzel Napping: The Torch for great additional examples of this one).
But then there are the naps where it’s a bit of something in between, and those naps can really make me grin and giggle!! Sometimes, Rugby’s long legs get tucked into him in amazing positions, and that’s the subject of today’s blog! I really think Rugby could compete in a category called “Gymnastic Napping” because he folds himself into amazing positions like he is completely made of rubber!
Now that Rugby’s nine years old, I see more naps from him than I did three years ago. They are endearing to me, and treasures, because his sleeping styles are as completely unique and charming as Rugby James himself!
So go ahead….giggle away….and get that gold medal ready for Rugby James! He’s in a class of his own!!
