Chix-A-Lot Friday: Why this works

I’m gonna let you in on a little secret, friends. There are a lot of reasons I decided to keep my Snickerdoodle, including our matching tails:

And the way he lets me blame him for my handsome devil antics:

But there is one special thing that I love most of all. When I do this:

He will often do this:

You see, hardcore snuggling is my very biggest specialty, and when a boy’s gotta get his snuggle on, he doesn’t want any brothers of his getting in the way. The Dude likes to snuggle too, but nothing like me. We’ve had other mega-snugglers in our house before, and although I am a very good sharer of attention, I do occasionally get tired of having to move over and let the other dog bask in half of the love. Sometimes a Chick just needs all of that love for himself!

So sometimes the Dude and I co-snuggle with visitors or mama and dad, and sometimes he scoots off to his own frog-dog spot on the floor and lets me have the lovin’ all to myself.

Mama says she always thought that if she adopted another dog to be my sibling, that the new dog would have to be just as much of a lapdog as I am. But she says that she now realizes she was wrong. Even though she loves lap-snuggling dogs very much, she had to take *my* preferences into consideration too — with me being an Elderbull and all.

Mama says it was a big day for her, when she realized what makes the right match for a family: it has to be the right dog for the people, but it has to be a good fit for the Chicken, too.

  1. Wait, an elderbull? As a new-ish (2 months) reader … I have to ask: How old is Sir Chick? Adorable picture by the way πŸ™‚ I can only hope that my blog is someday as awesome as yours!

  2. Love Chick’s blog. And the pictures – priceless. So happy that the two boys are getting along so well. A perfect match in all ways!

  3. What a perfect match made in Heaven! Snuggling is the best, and when you see their adorable “sleepy” face that they give you, you just melt. Every moment I get to spend with our dog Nikita, is the best, and moments that I would never give up for anything. She is my best friend, a perfect match! Right now as I am commenting, she is napping on the couch with her legs hanging off the side and then she occasionally moans as she stretches. Priceless! Having a dog in the house makes the house a home. Love your blog so much & every photo you post, I always go “aw” and want to snuggle them up! Have a great day! πŸ™‚

  4. Good for you Chick! Our Harley-Monster is also a super lap dog, and she is on board with you, and pretty happy that, while Dashy likes the cuddles, he doesn’t have to be draped over us, like she does. Makes for a more peaceful environment. πŸ™‚

  5. I think that picture of them in the kitchen might be one of my all time favorites! The Dude just looks so mischievous and Chick sits there looking like he had nothing to do with it at all! I just love it.

  6. OHhh Im sooo happy you got your very own dog Chick!!! Every dog needs one πŸ™‚ The Dude looks like he is perfect for your family πŸ™‚ Congrats!!! I finally caught up on the last 2 months of posts. You sure have been busy πŸ™‚


  7. I love those butt-to-butt pictures. πŸ™‚ Such cute matching tails! And the picture of Chick’s lap nap is priceless. I love how vibrant your pictures are. Do you modify them in a photo processing program or use special lenses/filters or what?

    • Hi Andrea, I do some very light post processing in Lightroom, which may boost the clarity a little. I love my lens and camera too — not sure which makes the real difference πŸ™‚ Aleks
