Ceiling cat approves.

That dog apparently has NO FRONT LEGS!!! I think this post should be filed under "Cute or Sad."

Another breed of dog and this could have been a tragedy!

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 07:50 AM

Oh, that is the life! Is that not the life?

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 07:52 AM

This picture makes me ache for my old doggy who died a few years ago. She would search out ANY sunbeam in the house, in the craziest places, to nap.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 07:54 AM

Doxies, are always cool, my exe's would chase the water spraying out of the garden hose.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 08:06 AM

HAH! ANY CAT would know that sunbeam naptime is where it's at! ;P
(PS, if you want to know where is the most comfortable nap place in the house, look for the cat-guaranteed he'll be in it, honkshuing away.)

Sun-roasted hot dog. Yum.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 08:14 AM

Ahhh, nothing says relaxation like a little black dog in the sun. Except maybe a little black cat...

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 08:15 AM

Mel: I can assure you that he does have front legs because I'm his proud mama!

CO: Thanks for posting pics of my baby! He is always finding sunbeams to sit and fall asleep in. I actually have many other pictures like this. It is too adorable. He also likes to try to chase and "catch" light reflections. :)

...we have a *Wiki* ??

Denny's expands their sandwich menu. To partner with their favorite "Moons over my Hammy", theyve included a new offering called "Sun on my Weenie"

I love to sleep in sunbeams too. My pugs each find a sunbeam (keep the blinds open just right for maximum sunbeams) and sleep (and snore).

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 08:19 AM

Lone, I was about to give you a gold star for that, but reconsidered...

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 08:23 AM

NUH-UH! I bet you have to push him like a wheelbarrow.

That first picture is, like, spiritual, man. Like it was taken just moments after an angel dog was sent to earth for the benefit of us poor hoomans. And I bet Susanna would agree with that! ;)

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 08:26 AM

OMG! I have the identical picture of my dearly departed RED dachshund sleeping in a sunbeam on a stairway. Awwww.......I miss him.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 08:30 AM

my dachshund does this too! She also moves with it too...so cute! I woof her.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 08:34 AM

Brilliant addition to the Rules, Meg!

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 08:39 AM

Me thinks someone has stole my grandpuppy right down to her bling bling jewelry !!! Such is the life of a spoilt queen of the house.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 08:45 AM

I love sleeping in sunbeams! Makes me want to curl up next to him...

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 08:48 AM

Yeah, I noticed the real 'weenie' in the sun after the fact. It works on difference levels.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 08:58 AM

"Move the key light a little to the right,.. thats it,.. now the soft fill under my chin,.. thank you..adjust the scrim..ye-es..that's about right..you may now start shooting Mr Testino or Testicles or what ever your name is"

It really is amazing that this so incredibly obvious rule of cuteness wasn't noticed before. Miss Huggums like to expose her belleh to the sun and both cats seem to make themselves longer in the sun.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 09:30 AM

Doxie ears! They are so nommable, especially when sun-warmed.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 09:30 AM

Mmmmm... looks very zzzzzzz

Dude; that flea collar is waaay too big for her.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 09:43 AM

Pupster is soooo shineeeee!!!! Pwetty!

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 09:44 AM

Aww! He looks just like my parent's dog Pickle, who is happy to go up the stairs but too scared to come down, so he sits at the top an waits patiently for someone to come and carry him down.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 09:52 AM

Heh. Just hope nobody comes along carrying a load of laundry or something down the stairs . . .

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 10:01 AM

Lookee the shiny coat on that dawrg!

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 10:11 AM

Not a flea collar, but a BARK collar! Guess the little doxie isn't always so sweet and peaceful ...

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 10:11 AM


I also think of sunbeams in conjunction w/ cats, but dogs aren't so stupid after all, apparently. (j/k dog people!)

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 10:33 AM

Awww.. I can just imagine this legless pup stumbling up and down the stairs as the sunbeam moves across the room.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 11:03 AM

Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my closeup. I'm still big, it's only the pictures that got small!

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 11:08 AM

His name is Winston, BTW. I just noticed that wasn't included in the post. :)

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 11:45 AM

That folded ear must be NOMMED!

Ahh, takes me back to the days when I nommed my dauchsies ears growing up. They are very nommable.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 11:52 AM

oh i LOVE doxies! i have one of my own and he's THE CUTEST! :)

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 12:34 PM

I know you can't possibly make a rule that all Doxies are automatically cute, but in my book they are!

I know there is a rule of cuteness about paws that dangle, but I nominate tucking your paws under as a rule also! Doxies do this all the time, hence the "Legless dog" look. Widdle low-to-ground paws get cold sometimes!!

Kisses to sun-warmed Winston!

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 02:38 PM

Top step's pup's pet spot. (Huzzah for palindromes.) ^n_n^

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 04:17 PM

See WInston in action in this video. There's more sitting in a sunbeam goodness in here, too. :)

Both Winston and his brother, Rambi had just had baths in this video, which is why Rambi's fur looks straggly.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 04:50 PM

NUH-UH! I bet you have to push him like a wheelbarrow.

Oh, dear GOD, you made the tears just shoot out of my eyes I laughed so hard. Which made my parrot fly around the room in alarm. You scared my darned parrot, you!!

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 05:00 PM

...and what a beautiful doxie!

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 05:01 PM


Here's to You......Rufus....the lad that took himself to the park......Edmonsons @ #14...such a long time ago......good memories!!

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 05:04 PM

Hon Glad - literally LOL @ "... Mr. Testicles or whatever your name is"!!!

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 05:14 PM

When I saw the bright light on the pup all I could see playing out in my mind was -
God: "Awaken pup, for I have come to bestow upon you the universal truth to share with your human and yea, all Mankind!"
Dog: "Light so bright - but so tie-tie...goes back to dreaming of chasing cats.

 |  Aug 21, 2008 at 05:50 PM

Susanna, lol at the flying doxie at 1:32
