Guest Post: It's the Little Things #5

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

It's no accident that Em's blog, Hip Hip Gin Gin, is one of a very few for which I have the web address memorized. It comes in super handy when I need a fix of beautiful inspiration from gorgeous fashion and home to her delicious weekly cocktail posts for starting the weekend off right. Just telling you how much I enjoy pursuing this blog doesn't do it justice. I insist you head over and explore for yourself!

One of the little (quite literally) things that bring me joy on a daily basis are my little dog's paws. She is so funny about them, always hanging one back paw off the sofa, sticking her two front paws out of her dog bed, and sometimes even popping all four up in the air as she sleeps as though she's pushing someone unseen away. She even uses them to pull my husband's hand on weekend mornings when we've slept in past the point of her patience. They perpetually smell like Fritos corn chips, which is equal parts endearing and hilarious. Even on the worst days, we can always count on her paw antics for a giggle, and for that we love her and her tiny feet to pieces!

Thank you so much Em for reminding us that sometime the little things are truly the little things right in front of us! Aren't animals just the best? Beyond the endless love and cuddles, their cute little quirks are what makes them so much fun!  I know many of have adorable four legged family members, so share...what little habits and mannerism make you just squeal??

  1. I feel the same way about my cat's paws (or his footsies as I call them)!

  13. So adorable! My little dog is a grumpy old thing on occasion - he's fourteen! - but sometimes he reverts back to that sweet little puppy behavior. Yesterday he got hold of one of my Yankee Candle tumblers and he started rolling it around on the floor. Of course, his eyesight isn't what it once was so the tumbler would roll between his legs and he'd spin around a good four times trying to find it...
