I have to admit that when I went away last weekend, I didn’t mind getting a break from playing fetch in the yard with the dogs. I didn’t miss being door person or tripping over the cats in the kitchen. It was really nice to have a whole bed to myself and all the leg room I needed.
But this, this I missed.
I love staying in bed on weekend mornings with a cup of coffee and the company of the dogs and my hubby, watching the news and just watching them play. I think they enjoy this time as well.
I’ll be going away again next weekend, but at least only for Friday and Saturday, so on Sunday morning I’ll wake up in my own bed and get to see these faces.
There truly is no place like home.

I bet they missed you too!
I think they did. 🙂
Mom could sit and watch us forever too!
There’s nothing more relaxing and heartwarming than just enjoying watching you guys!

I much prefer being home with my “furry kids” than away from them! Even though they don’t get on the bed with us, they do lay by our feet in the living room while we have our coffee.
As long as they are close by, that is the important thing!

Awww that is so sweet!!! I know how you feel. We are only human, and sometimes it is nice to get a break, but how can you not miss those furry faces when you wake up in the morning 🙂 <3 love this post.

Thank you!! You hit the nail on the head….we might need a little break from the work of having pets, but we never really want a break from the love they give us in return. 🙂
Dolly the Doxie says
Yeah I know we drive you nuts when we’re there but you miss us when we’re not! Love Dolly
We humans are complicated, aren’t we, Dolly? 🙂
The Island Cats says
Yeah, we bet they missed seeing your face in the morning, too.
I like to think so! Though they might also get a little enjoyment out of being able to stretch out on my side of the bed! LOL
Despite enjoying a little extra leg room when away, I agree that there’s no place like home.
Leg room might be overrated when compared to other things. 🙂
Awww!!! I totally get it. I would love the break too, but I would miss my doggie faces too. Sounds like a perfect Sunday morning. 🙂
It is….I just love Sundays! I’m glad you understood what I was saying. 🙂
Caren Gittleman says
Awwww they make it ALL worthwhile!
They sure do!!

I don’t like being away from Bentley at all. ☺ I’m sure your gang loves the bedtime ritual. ♥
They sure do. Though occasionally Cricket will prefer to be down in front of the woodstove than with us though. I try not to leave the dogs anymore than I have to!

It’s so weird being without the pup! We’re going away for a weekend soon so I’ll be going through the same thing.
At least we always have that to look forward to when we get home though, right?
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
Me too, I love waking up to the dogs. Lovely photos.
It’s the best. Thank you! Again, they were less than stellar cell phone photos, but a little touch up improved them I think.
Miley's Daily Scoop says
What a sweet post! We love Sunday mornings with our pups!
Thanks! It doesn’t get any better than that, does it?
Karen Cantlin says
The best part of my week off was all the time (and it was the majority of the week) snuggled with my dogs on the couch. They took turns being the one on my lap, or I’d have one on each side of me. It was the absolute best.
That sounds perfect!! That’s what makes a “staycation” better than a vacation!
I so agree with you, it’s great to have a bed whatI can use like I want, but it’s empty without Easy :o)
It’s funny how we’re willing to put up with the inconveniences, like no leg room, and even miss them when we’re away. 🙂
Weekend snuggles with dogs is the best part of the week, but we would rather skip the depressing news for that day.
Too true….I often tune out some of the news, and read my email on my phone instead!
Jason and I got home late last Sunday (I was gone for 13 days, Jason joined me for 4) and the pets are still all being extra cuddly. I guess I set up enough walking and playing for them while away but no one cuddles like your very own humans!
I’m sure they were taken good care of while you were away, but I bet they missed you as much as you missed them. It’s especially tough to be away for that long, and you’ll probably have extra cuddling for a while!
Oz the Terrier says
Snuggle time is the best time…whether morning, afternoon or night! I bet you missed it…Ma misses it too when she goes away. Happy B & W Sunday
You’re right, Oz, snuggling is definitely an any time of day activity, and sorely missed when we go away! Happy B&W Sunday to you too!
Home is the best, I agree. That’s why I like having my house with me all the time.
(Question…Are you having trouble with Subscribe2 not sending out emails when you post? Twice now mine have not gone out.)
How nice to be able to take your home with you most of the time! 🙂 I’d love to do that someday.
I’ll leave you a note on your blog on the other subject so I’m sure you’ll see it.
We love Sunday snuggles in the bed!! You just can’t beat it !
You sure can’t!!
