(Tails of) Being a Big Brother

Patches is home!

First of all, I have to say that he is one sleepy dude...he sleeps all the time! Like, right now he is on my mama's lap - asleep. Unfortunately, he doesn't snore like I do, so it's hard to tell if he's really sleeping or just faking.

I do like him though. When he's not fast asleep, he likes to play bitey face and tug-o-war. I have not lost a game of tug-o-war yet! However, Patches does cheat at bitey face...he goes right for my jowls with his tiny, sharp puppy teeth. He's going to be a fierce competitor one day.

He looks wet in the face, because he just had a bath!

Here he is during one of his many naps. (Look at that pink belly!) I let him borrow Black Dog to snuggle with since I don't come close to fitting in his bed.

And, here I am checking up on him. Like I said - it's hard to tell if he's faking.

PATCHES! I love it! And I love him! And I love you! And I love the pictures of you together! And little puppies just fill my heart with happiness and sunshine and love!

I'm so happy you like him, too! Fig didn't like me for a while, so that wasn't much fun. You guys can enjoy bitey face from the beginning! Woot!

He's so cute! And you are going to be a great big brother! Does he have a little lightning shaped thing on his nose? Is he related to that Hairy Poppy guy??


Sparky said...

Aww, he's so cute! I love his name Patches. You are a very good brother to him!

Sparky Boy!

Patches has everything he needs to grow up big & strong. He's got a good lap to sleep on, little black dog to snuggle, and a big brother who knows how to brother him!!

It's cool you like being a big brother (not everydog can be a good one like you).

Goober love,
