Grandpa Angus and Pi

Momma has been going through the photographic archives again. She found some photos of Grandpa Angus and Pi that made her eyes leak. She told me that if you terrier folks are like her, you always like to see pictures of an aire-guy, so I agreed to post these shots.
Apparently, a professional photographer came to their house for the photo shoot. As you can see, Grandpa Angus was not clear on how to setup at first (I'm told that he even tore down the backdrop and knocked over the lights, but that wasn't captured on film).

Little Pi was a rescue doggie that came with papers saying she was a purebred Basset Hound! Clearly not, but I think she is so pretty with her flowing locks. Wish I could have met her.
Pi and Grandpa Angus were more in love than any other doggies Momma has ever had. She says that when they played bitey face, Grandpa Angus would slow down on purpose so that Pi could catch him.
Looks like an engagement photo, huh?
We call this the "money shot." I suspect there are foodables just out of view.
Last night, the Pee-Wee finally figured out that the couch is likely the most comfy bed ever.
Leaving me to (finally) enjoy my orthopedic mattress. Ah....

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Nice photos. Our family used to have an English Bulldog named JR. There are still lots of photos of him around the house. He died of cancer when he was only 3 years old but made a huge impression on the family. It's nice to get in the way-back mobile and look at old pictures. They are good memories for our families. Thanks for sharing!

Aw, those pictures are just so sweet! And Mango, you did a very skilled job in convincing PeeWee that he would really prefer the couch so you get your bed back. Do you have dogplomacy training?

And thanks for the tip about human raw diets. So funny, my Momma won't do it for herself (something about "too much work" and "likes meat") but she'll feed me raw all the time. She did promise to try to eat more fruits and vegetables, though. As long as she doesn't get into my turkey neck stash, I think it will be ok.

Happy New Year!
Biggie

Mango Man!

Please tell your mama that Grandpa Angus is stinkin' cute, and his love affAire with sweet Pi looks epic from the way he regards her! You have quite a lineage of love, buddy!

Glad to see you're enjoying all of your ortho bed, but do you need a bigger one maybe? I see that the threat of Mango Methane Shots did the trick, hmmmm?

Goober love,
Stanley

Pee Ess
Give some goob smooches to your mama for still lovin' her Angus & Pi. My girl gets all teary at the weirdest times, and a lot of those times it's because she's remembering her Rosie or her Bert.

Maggie and Mitch said...

We're so glad PeeWee discovered the sofa, Mango!

Love ya lots,
