kaite~ hmmm. disturb.
well,
the closest to the camera is Tulip, the mother of the next two.
Tulip was a pound dog. She was
the wife of Como Tu, a chihuahua.
he died in a street fight a few
years ago. (as chihuahuas often
do).
then is Lily, Tulip's daughter and
next, Ramon, Tulip's son. her
other son Markie was murdered in the same street fight as his dad.
then is
Chinche...means bed bug in spanish,
the "normal" dog as in not chihuahua/terrier. she is really
MY dog. the others occurred because of the man i was married to.
it's all another loooooooong story
but, the couch is theirs and
that's how that is.

All curled up and Listening! What ears! A very peaceful scene...

kaite said...

hah ha - when you said "tomorrow it will be a different story" i thought you were talking about the dogs, and meant you were going to move them off your futon cover. Blogspeak - it has several meanings!
Thanks for introducing them, names and all, i wouldn't let Ramon out onto the street, it's dangerous out there, poor little pets. k.

They remind me of a music score-or a sentence along that couch. And whew-they've certainly paid their dog "dues"!

rural New Mexico comes with
dogs
dogs dogs dogs
dogs doing what dogs do and
for whatever reason, this end
of the road is for the honeymoon.
it's pretty awfull. one female
in heat and maybe a dozen males
all vying for position, all sizes
and this will go on for days until
she chooses and the deed is done.
i have never been much for small
dogs...they were my husband's.
but well...now they are here and
very much a part of my world.
the half acre that is their world
has been over and over patched
and fortified with things like
chickwire buried at the bottom of
the fence...which is that wooden
privacy fence... you have no idea.
but chihuahuas are agressive and
determined and over and over, as
soon as i would leave the house,
they would begin to excavate.
and they are all NEUTERED! Whaa!
they still want to get in on the
action.
it's been a while now though...i
done think there is an inch that
isn't blocked anymore...so, maybe.
time tells.

Now that is my kind of couch - dogland - perfection!

Yvonne said...

A dog nest! Love the name 'Chinche'.

Susan said...

Sweet pups - all in the cinnamon bun sleeping position - all curled up in a twist. We share most of our furniture with our dog - although it gets harder for her to jump up much. What is your dog's name?

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

Susan.. there is Tulip. she is
the mother of Ramon and Lily.
then, Chinche (in spanish, bedbug)
the "normal" dog.

i have always had big dogs.
my one best most loved dog was
half Mexican Grey Wolf and half
black german shepard.
his name was
Winter Sky at Twilight
he started running horses where i
lived then.
not ok
and a man who worked for the
dept. of land management took him.
he jumped an 8ft fence. it was his
wolfness.
these dogs are little and have
small lives, but none the less
intense.
Ramon, who i named that, to give
him a sense of manliness, is
kind
of
a mess.
he, and his sister Lily, are
about 8 years old? the year after
sept llth...
when was that....
hmmm....
anyway...his teeth are a problem.

Susan said...

Oh yes - the bedbug name - I like that. I just couldn't count that day or something! Ha! So four dogs - that's enough for a pack - who is top dog? Winter Sky is an interesting story - sad ending. I bet he was beautiful. Sorry I am getting stuck on the dogs...
