Meet Ernest

Ernest is the fat, lazy datschound who has been staying with us since Thursday. We are pet sitting for a friend of mine. He's been pretty good (with the exception of one four-in-the-morning fiasco, when he was sent to doggy time out) and is a very sweet dog.

He's quite quirky, which makes him endearing. His only toy is this blanket:

Even though he's quite a tiny fellow, he drags this thing around the house. I've been impressed by his ability to manipulate something so much bigger than him. Also, he creates a nest and burrows inside it. If you look closer, you'll see the tip of his nose and paw on the right hand side:

Mostly he just sleeps, but I can tell he's sad and misses his family. They are coming to pick him up this afternoon, and I'm sure he'll be excited to see them.


  1. Hee! I love the little nose poking out. Adorable.

  2. Oh my cute!!!!!! And I'm not even an animal person!!!!!!!

  3. Dog sitting? You're a true friend. He is pretty cute!

  4. Glad your ~just~ dog-sitting! He sure is cute! You are a good friend.....
