a tangle of limbs

Miss Stevie Wonder took advantage of the beautiful weather this weekend to become acquainted with the ins and outs of the chairs on our deck. She did not seem to realize what the rest of the world knows, which is that adirondack chairs are not actually custom built for dogs to sit on.

She conducted about 15 minutes of false starts and contortionist moves that make me want to audition her for Cirque du Soleil, and could not have possibly been comfortable.

In the end she determined that all four of her gangly tangle of limbs could not fit on the chair at the same time. In the spirit of fairness, the limbs took turns, two at a time.

It may have looked ridiculous to us, but Stevie Wonder did not appreciate our poking fun at her:

“I insist. This chair is quite luxurious.”

  1. Very cute. She goes well with that chair color too. This is Luna’s routine when she jumps into my lap while I’m sitting on a chair. Take a little while for her to get herself into position, sometimes depending on the chair I’m in she can get away with laying down even. It’s a cute habit, but at the same time I have caught the wrong end of her head to my cheek when she was making the leap up without me knowing.
    Have a great week!

  2. She is funny, in an ‘I can do this!’ kind of way. My big dog thinks he is the same size as my little dog and can, therefore fit in all the same places. It’s fun watching him fold himself up to sit at the end of the couch. BTW, I have been meaning to ask, what is the beautiful shade of blue that your house is painted in??? I am in the midst of color selection for my home. Ugh.

  3. ha!!! Morgan does this SAME THING with our adirondack love seat. He WANTS to be comfortable up there because it’s the highest spot in the backyard, so obviously, since he is the king of the backyard, that’s where he should be sitting. But he just can’t get comfortable with that lean back

  4. Tommy does that same thing when trying to get comfortable on my lap. Like many pitties, he thinks he’s a lap dog. I love Stevie’s “mad” face. She’s so beautiful. She’s really come around, hasn’t she?

  5. OMG this post made me laugh out LOUD at my desk this morning. Stevie is soooo cute and really reminds me of my girl.

  6. Well, I can’t blame you for trying. I mean, look how good blue looks against your Most Beautiful Brindle Furs. But take it from me – stretching out on nice, soft grass is WAY more comfy.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  7. It’s good that she’s exploring and investigating….and doesn’t seem to be too concerned that her behind has fallen through. Hope all is well between her and Chick – haven’t heard much on that whole subject. 🙂

  8. Stevie looks a lot more comfortable than she should. It looks like she has learned to make herself right at home. What a relaxed face. 🙂

    I love the colour of your chairs, by the way. So cheerful! They fit right in with Stevie’s mood.

  9. Wow!!! What an AMAZING blog!!! Just came across it via BARCS. Your photography is incredible and your commentary is witty, heartfelt and hilarious all at the same time. Bravo! This is truly a gem!
