How to Make a Bed With a Panda In It

Participating in Chania's Friday Photo Challenge over at  RAZMATAZ.  This week's challenge was to photograph our pets, or someone else's in an artistic or unique way.

I know. Right up my alley. At least the pet part is.

Every morning I must go through a frustrating bed-making ritual. The bed and bedclothes are quite cooperative, but there is a hound that resides here who is old, grouchy and thinks it's her bed and therefore I must make the bed around her.

Thus, How To Make a Bed With a Panda In It:

(Panda is our Boston's name for those not familiar)





That's not a smile, it's a lifting of the lip as a snore escapes.










Ah, finally. An action shot. Bed's made!




Trying to go back to sleep here...





Scram!

She's gotten so gray. Everywhere!  I love her gray eyelashes in the above picture.


8am, it's already been an exhausting day.

Thanks Chania!

Oh wait. Yes, to those worried about the jealous-take my picture too-I'm not gray, Sadie.  She was right there angling for a shot the whole time:


And they do make me laugh!

You captured some great Boston Terrier expressions. A picture truly is worth a thousand words.

I imagine I would give up and not make that bed with all that cuteness going on.

Oh my goodness aren't their personalities just the best! What is it about a freshly made bed that is sooo tempting? Our Eddy likes to burrow under the covers like a mole occasionally coming up for air. Love it!

They are so adorable...I might have to steal them.

This post is adorable! I love the pictures. Your "panda" is a real cutie. There are times when I have to move an "angry" cat to make the bed, but never something as adorable as your dog. My daughter's finger is feeling better. Thanks for being featured on my blog.

You are a well trained human...
I see the bed is also made around Stanley.....

That making of the bed was very tricky. Good job working around the panda.

Slobbers,

You know, this is why I love animals. You just can;t help but smile. I love her rolling eyes. Just like us I guess, they love to be cozy.

Have a great weekend.
