Baby Thor & His Boston Terriers

I don’t know what gets better than a baby with his dogs! Cuteness. Overload. Here baby Thor (6-months) shows off his Boston Terriers, Franklin (9 years, the wise one) & Drake (the hyper brother who is possibly 100…or a vampire, as his mom says, since apparently it was out of nowhere that he showed up on an empty road five years ago when they took him home, and he has not slowed down or aged one bit).   We love their parents Abigail & Erik who just spent a 6-month stint in Jersey City in a little palace overlooking the Statue of Liberty.  We’re hoping they and their boys find their way back to us again.  For now, we’ll have to stare longingly at these pictures. *sigh*

Franklin’s most adorable trait, “clamping” – aka. biting down and clasping his blankie.

Oh what’s that you say? You want a treat? This delicious treat? This treat right here going into my mouth?

All the boys.

Franklin definitely deserves a comment bubble on the series below…

You know it’s love when your dog is terrorized by the new mini-human in the house…

…but still stands guard for him just the same.

18 yr-old Collie/Shepherd “Dutch”

Dutch brings new meaning to “senior portrait”.  At 18 years old, he is a whopping 88 dog years old! (At least according my Google search just now.) He’s still got it though, gray beard and all.

Btw, I was tempted to file this under ‘baby’ since we all know dogs are basically our kids. That is until you actually have kids, at which point they are temporarily relegated to just ‘dog’ before being reinstated to baby again.

…which was exhausting.

Why let babies get all the cute feet pictures? Love the old man hair growing between Dutch’s toes.
