Low to the ground at the speed of sound…sort of.

It has been brought to my attention that I show many a picture of my dog, Phoebe, in a position of repose. You know, napping. This is because she does that a lot. Nap. She’s the best napping dog I’ve ever had. If they gave out prizes, you know in the non-working group, for napping? She’d win. Paws down.

Don’t let her talent and good looks fool you, she is in fact, a very active dog. She’s so active the only time I can get a good picture of her is when she is napping. Sometimes she just moves too fast for the naked eye or the camera lens.

Case in point:

Sound effects for running sound bite

 
This is one fast moving dog, I tell ya. You remember the Bionic Woman? And that crazy sound that played when she ran? I swear you can almost hear that when Phoebe is running. She’s not much for the long distance running, she’s more about the short burst of energy. After twenty minutes of bionically running amok around the backyard, she is ready for her nap. Again. It recharges her bionic batteries.

So, for all of you who think we just lay around in the sun all day, we do  just remember the saying, “It’s best to let sleeping dogs lie”. There’s nothing worse than a bulldog who hasn’t gotten her nap out.

  1. Hey, the short bursts of frenetic energy are the best way to stay in shape, maybe even shed a few pounds. She's way ahead of the game.

  3. Wow, look at Phoebe go! I like the sound effects, too.

    Lona loves to run and frolic and play but it seems every time I take a picture of her she's all laying about because she's so tired from running and frolicking and playing. A dog's life is a tough one indeed.

  4. So cute. I'm so impressed she's off leash and still in the neighborhood. My dogs wood be GONE. Love the bionic sound.

  5. Phoebe is too cute! I think 20 minutes is perfect for both dog and owner to frolic, too.

  6. She must have been running to her food bowl! That's the only time I've ever seen her move that fast!

  7. My friend as two bullies. Like yours, they nap really hard. They play hard too, but it never lasts long. My standard poodle likes to play chase with them. They chase her across the yard... maybe back, but then they're done.

  8. I love her! My bully, Tug likes to jump over the sofa...and he would like to come over and wrassle with her.

  9. Okay, I guess the reason she naps so hardcore must be because she tires herself out from being "so active".......the sound effects make that picture by the way, hahaha.

  10. I love the bulldogs and she is a sweetie.

    I have two little assholes who make that noise about 40 gazillion times a day. I, unfortunately know that noise too well.

  11. Phoebe is a real beauty! I wish there was a really good training school around here. That Boo Dog of ours is getting so big and out of control. I've got to clamp down on him soon!!
