Belly rubs, please!

Ah, dogs. They're rarely shy about letting you know what they want. Here, Daisy and Maggie show us how much they'd like to have their fuzzy bellies rubbed. Actually, I think Daisy is sleeping in her picture, but there's never a point when she doesn't want a belly rub (except perhaps when she's eating dinner, which takes her 30 seconds), so it's still accurate.

Tomorrow we get to go down to the park and start obedience lessons. Both puppies desperately need them for various reasons -- Daisy because she won't stop barking and nipping, Maggie because she doesn't listen. Plus it will be good for them to socialize with other dogs and people, and learn important commands like "stay."

Sorry to have been so quiet lately, life has been crazy with cleaning, renovating, and New Year's Day gift-giving. I'm hoping that by this time next week, things will be closer to normal. Of course, then it will be time to start preparing for gem show!


  1. She definitely trusts you guys if she sleeps like that! I look forward to reports of obedience school.

  2. One night when we had gaming in the living room, she spent the entire time sleeping on her back in my lap. A lot of corgis prefer sleeping like that for some reason. They're such silly little dogs!

  3. How cute is that! They look sooooo relaxed.

  4. Earlier today, Daisy was lying like that again, and Mags had her head on her belly. They're so adorable sometimes :)
