Nap time!

Watson and Mylie had a busy few days with Thanksgiving at the Strickland house on Thursday, a visit from Grandma and Grandpa Wuollett on Friday, Christmas cookies with grandma Beth on Saturday, and cutting down the christmas tree on Sunday.

Here they are tonight, taking a little nap on the couch. They love to cuddle like this.

Watson has been more cuddly than normal because he's been feeling a little under the weather lately. On Friday night he started this coughing, choking, gaging noise and it was scary! We got him an appointment at the vet first thing in the morning on Saturday and they confirmed he had kennel cough :-( It's a very mild case and he already seems better. I guess he got it at puppy day care on Wednesday. Too bad! It's very contagious so we're going to keep him away from other dogs for awhile. Mylie is just fine. They were both vaccinated for it, but because Watson is just a puppy his immune system isn't as good as Mylie's yet.

Puppies on the dashboard

Last night, Michael and Waston were parked in a parking lot waiting for me and Watson climed up on the dash (flash back a year when mylie did the same thing!) Here's a cute picture of Watson- and for old times sake, Mylie :-) They look so much alike! Watson is fluffier than mylie was, and Watson is a little bigger in this picture- but I do think they tried their dashboard climbing at about the same age. How funny!

They just love to curl up in the strangest places! The other day, I was in the bathroom curling my hair and I looked over and saw Mylie and Watson cuddled up in the bathtub. Watson was starting to fall asleep but he opened his eyes for the photo :-) Sometimes they wait in there and cry at the faucet hoping I will turn it on so they can have a drink. This time they were just sleeping in the tub though. So funny...

Visit to meet Great Grandpa Krussow

On Sunday, we took Mylie and Watson to visit my 90 year old grandpa. He lives with my aunt and uncle in Eagan MN, and he is a HUGE dog lover. He always wanted to be a vet, but ended up going to school to become an electrical engineer instead. He's always had a dog, even to this day. His dog, Murphy and my aunt and uncle's dog, Axel, and Mylie and Watson had a great time playing.

Here is a picture of Grandpa Krussow and Watson.
