We’ve all been there…

…You mean, had a boarded up fireplace?

No—I mean, we’ve all been kids at one point, and been on the living room carpet face to face with our family pet in a serious case of brinksmanship. Who’s gonna budge first?

Well, my cat pounced on me. What about you, Emily A.?

Comments

  1. …it looks like the dog’s way too passed out to do anything about that kid except feebly try to lick it (note tongue hanging out of mouth)

  2. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz[SNORK]zzzzzz…

  3. LOVE IT!!

    Reminds me of the times I used to lay down in front of the kitty and spread Cheerios on the ground as a shared meal together…

  4. Heh, what a work of art! That carpet looks incredibly clean. I remember being eye to eye with the family dog. Such a soothing, almost religious experience, really. Knowing our place in the universe together. And lounging around on the floor.

  5. Telepathic snorgling!

  6. Such bad parents! They let their child in the general vicinity of the dog? Although it’s sleeping, it could jump up any moment and rip her face off! Then it will suffocate her! Then it will pee on the carpeting, devour the camera person, evolve opposable thumbs, run for office, get elected president, and DROP THE BOMB ON ALL OF US! Run!! Run for your lives!!!!!

    :-)

  7. I, for one, welcome our new snorglepooch overlords.

  10. I’m enjoying that carpet. Styrofoam in the Home.

  11. LOL @ llism!

    And JS, yes, a few people did (see my and Auntie Mame’s comments)

  12. Ohmmmmmmm….. be one with the doggie energy…. ohmmmmm…. feel the puppy within…. ohmmm…. conect with the oneness of the universe… ohmmmm….

    … though not necessarily at the same time.

    Not that I am 26 years old and still do this or anything. Ahem

  14. No—I mean, we’ve all been kids at one point, and been on the living room carpet face to face with our family pet in a serious case of brinksmanship. Who’s gonna budge first?

    Ok, I’m still doing this now…
    I’m 35 years old…
    Crap…was I supposed to stop at some point???

  15. They’re not ‘mad dogging’ each other, are they?

  16. kimur: i’m 30 and i still do this too!
    (i hope we weren’t supposed to stop. it’s fun!)

  17. Jay Fry says:

    They both look like they’ve passed out after a good ‘play’ session.

  18. eekkk! So cute. It reminds me of my 1st dog. I used to curl up with him and lay on his tummy and sleep. So sweet!

  19. Is that tongue-age or jowl-age? Inner-jowlage, methinks.

  20. I am thinking that it is not so much a dog *tongue* as it is a charmingly pink, flabby, inside-of-lip region. My dog also has no muscle control of his lips, and I often admire the droopy-lip phenomenon when he lies on his side.

  21. i.e. I agree with Trish

  22. did nobody notice the guitar in the background? this is obviously an after-rock session coma! they was jammin’!!

  23. AWW : )
