Awww Monday: Relaxed Poodle

Awww Monday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Join us every Monday for Awww...Mondays.  Post a picture that makes you say Awww... and that it.

Make sure you get the code from Sandee's site, linked above, and leave a link to your post so we can visit you.  What better way to start the week than with a smile!

One of the interesting parts of cleaning homes is getting to know people's pets.

Bear loves to sleep on his special pad.

  5. I am always amused by what cats and dogs choose as their favorite nap place. Toby's is on top my feet. He also likes to play fetch. I have a sneaking suspicion there might be some dog genetics somewhere in his ancestry! LOL
