Where Dobby Sleeps

A long, long time ago Dozer tagged Dobby to show the places where he sleeps. Dob has a couple of beds, but doesn't really use them....

Zinnie uses this green bed when she is visiting more than Dobby ever does.

You might recognize this bed as the one Dobby fights with- he never lays in it.

Dobby has the cutest, tiniest little crate I've ever seen! It's adorable. He does sleep in it once in a while, especially in the evenings if he wants quiet time. He also knows the command "Go in your house" and will stay there without the door closed if I ask him to.

This, as you know, is "The Nest" and Dobby sleeps here almost all day every day. He loves his nest so much that if the blanket is folded up he will make sad eyes at you until you make him a nest. He also knows that his blanket = safety. He is much calmer on car trips if he's wrapped up in his blankey.

The best place to sleep, though, is obviously the big bed with mommy. <3

Dobby goes Swimming!

Usually, I'm at work so much during the week that the weekends are very Dobby-centric. I feel like while I'm home, we should do special things together. Well! This weekend, Dobby, J, and I went to meet Connie and Zinnie at a lake! Connie's grown daughter has a house on the lake, and Connie takes Zinnie there to swim. I've never seen Dobby swim- he probably never had before- so I was really excited to go.

When we got there, Dob was just happy to be somewhere new. He's always very curious and likes to explore and sniff everything in sight. We heard Zinnie give a little bark, and Dobby recognized her voice and took off in her direction. It's always cute to see them greet each other! They're such good friends :) Dobby really likes Connie, too. At this point, though, he had no idea that he was going to go IN the water!

Connie took Zinnie down the ramp entry area to a spot about 2 or 3 feet deep and lowered her into the water- her little legs kicking before she even got wet! Zinnie took off! She is a fast little swimmer. Dobby was slower when it was his turn- like I said I doubt if he has ever been swimming before. Connie lowered him in and made sure his legs were kicking, then let go. My little guy swam his heart out and came right to me in the shallows! It was the cutest thing :)

They took turns again a few times, swimming to me and walking up the ramp to dry ground. They were both really cute. We will definitely be doing this again sometime soon, and I promise to bring a camera! It's a great way to cool down in the heat of summer.

Dobby had his first swim!

My mom got Dobby this little Eeyore at a yard sale. It crinkles when you squeeze it, and Dob likes the fuzzy hair.
