Mom's a bit worried

So the Mom says she's a bit worried about me - you know why - because I am enjoying my retirement! Since the "THING" - "HONEY BADGER" - Denny (what ever you want to call it has come, I have slipped gracefully into an old age attitude - or so Mom thinks. I don't play with the youngsters, rarely get past a fast walk and generally snooze most the day. (Well gee Mom - ya think months of 90+ degree all day every day has something to do with that????) Really - give me one good reason why I should exert myself? Mom says I am thinking and acting like I am 10 year old instead of 4 - well if she had to carry this big old coat around - she wouldn't be feeling so spritely either! I say "leave the boy alone and wake me up when winter comes" Paws up for those who agree.


  1. Reilly, good to see you. Tell Mom not to worry, Phantom and Thunder are doing the same thing here. They are letting Ciara and Lightning do all the crazy zoomies.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  2. Woof! Woof! Oh! .. I just turn 10 n I learned a good trick. There are times I act like a puppy then all of a sudden a senior dog. Well, Sweet Dreams. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  3. Good call...why over do? Take it easy! :)

  4. Bailey's been quieter this summer while Katy's been zooming. I expect his energy to increase as the temps decrease.

  5. We're all in agreement here, Reilly!!

    Three paws raised high!!

  6. My dogs always seem to perk up when the weather gets cooler. I'm sure you will too.

  7. We've had enough of the heat and summer too, Reilly! Bring on the cooler temps of autumn and winter! yahooooooooo

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  8. Katie turned 4 last she'll be 5 soon. I have noticed she naps more...but she's still ready to go go go if I offer her the opportunity. Possibly Reilly is just worn out by all the change, moving, Jackson, Denny, and has found you are so engaged with the youngsters that he can get away with being quiet. He always was laid back. I'd spend some time with just him, take just him on a walk maybe once in awhile...and see if he seems normal then. Otherwise...maybe a trip to the vet just to be sure?

  9. *Four paws in the air*

    I just wish some of your relaxed attitude would come visit my dogs for a while!

  10. I have to ask this question....

    Is it paying off for you to act tired and older? If it is, then keep it up. That way they will continue to give you special treatment instead of IT.

    If not, you better be thinking of another way to get the better of Denny.

    Does that make sense?


  11. Oh my gosh! When I read this, I thought of my furry sister, Nala! Mommy says she used to run around like a puppy at 12 years old (just before I entered the picture), but since I've been here, over the past year, she's slowed down a lot!

    Mommy thinks when the weather starts getting cooler (months from now), she'll take Nala outside and throw balloons up in the air (one of her favorite games to play).

    Though... she still has spurts where she acts just like me... a puppy. ;)

    Woofs & hugs <3,

    ~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl!)

  12. My dogs are all lying around alot. It been s hot, no one wants to do anything. It probably just the weather.

  13. Twenty-seven paws raised at The Love Shack!!

  14. Paws UP Here!!! We do not like this heat....this summer has been particularly unbearable for whatever reason!! At six and seven years of age...we are...umm...middle age?? Enjoy retirement!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  15. Stanzie says, "Right on Reilly!!"
    Let the youngsters be idiots in the summer heat. We know better!

  16. I am just the same -the heat does not help for sure! Plus with that fur coat - it must be unbearable!

    Lots of icy licks
    Sally and paddy

  17. Four paws up here (or is that eight?)

    Much too hot for those in fur coats.

  18. Well, having a puppy in the house can be tiring, and it is kind of hot. Are you eating and pooping OK? Moms know best, so if you are not your old self soon, might want a vet check just in case.


  19. I have to agree. Fur makes you hot!!! And when it is hot outside, I don't feel too active either. Bet she will be wishing you were still "retired" when it cools off.

    Puppy Kisses,


Thank you for woofing at us - we read each and every one of them
