like father, like son....

the other night when i was not feeling well....
gussy decided to lay with me in bed to keep me company...
he ended up rolling to his side and falling asleep....
next thing i know the pup is snoring!!
do your dogs snore?
this is something new for gus...
he has never snored before...
i think he is taking after his daddy ;)
gus does not snore when he is sleeping on his back...
with all 4 paws in the air...
or on his tummy...
only when he is sleeping on his side all stretched out...
unlike his daddy, who only does when sleeping on his back...

another thing about gussy....
he has this stuffed puppy (well 3 of them)...
he will take said puppy...
turn it upside down...
wrap his two paws around the puppy...
and proceeds to suck on one of puppy's back feet...
like a paci until he falls asleep...
he does this ALL THE TIME...
does anyone else's dog do that?!?
photo below of him doing this....

one last thing...
this little stinker butt had a groomer appt this morning...
my dad came over to pick him up at 6:45...
he rang the door bell...
so of course gus went nuts and ran to the door....
i opened it and gus saw my dad and took off....
back up the flight of stairs...
tore through the living and dining room...
then up the other flight of stairs...
straight into his kennel...
he wouldn't come out...
i reached in to grab him and he growled at me...
he never growls at me...
then he got nippy...
so i took his water dish off the kennel...
tipped it upside down...
then he came out, ha...
i picked him up and he cried...
i felt bad because i know he hates the groomer...
but he needs to be cut and cleaned...
okay enough gus-isms for the day ;)
hope everyone is having a great week!
so glad tomorrow is friday!! :)

How funny!! :)

Animals are so smart...they know what's up!

My CATS snore! How's that for weird!! They also take their stuffed rats and toys everywhere with them!

Have a great day!

Blair @ Reasonably Swanky said...

OMG this is too cute! Dogs are so smart! Fortunately for us, Bo loves the groomers and whimpers when we get there to pick him up b/c he doesn't want to come home..haha!
Gussy is a cutie and a little spoiled! But hey, mine is too! Bo snores so loud we can hear him downstairs sleeping on the couch..haha!
Have a good day!

Summer {Bisfor...} said...

Ashley @ {Let Go, Laughing} said...

ok the picture of him sucking on the stuffed animal is hilarious! i've never heard/seen a dog do that before!

Lauren Kelly said...

I’m soooooo glad my dog doesn’t snore, haha!!! And my dog absolutely despises the vet as well when he goes to get a bath and nails clipped!!

Scott and Katie Dietrich said...

Your dog is ADORABLE!!!

My dog stores a lot...Mainly when he is sleeping on his back.

I love that your dog sucks on the leg of the stuffed dog untils he falls asleep!!!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

That too funny! Gus is just too cute!

Jorden and Kristin said...

that is so funny! Fenway likes to sleep on her back with her paws up in the air too! it's adorable! she doesnt snore (yet) but she dreams a lot and whimpers and barks its really funny!

Michely Medeiros. said...

aww that's too funny :] my dog snores when he's having a really good slepp and as far as i can remember he sucks on his blanket like a paci to go to sleep...not sure why he does that...

your dog is adorable by the way

Sole Matters said...

OMG! Haha that’s so funny that he ran and got in his kennel. Sometimes my dog will do funny things like that too. Or sometimes on the weekends if he sees me put my clothes on he will go sit in his kennel, even if im not leaving. Bentley snores on occasion. I haven’t really noticed if it’s a certain position that he lays in or not.

Miss Kriss said...

Awwwww!!! Girlie, that is toooo cute!! Our corgi snores when he's stretched out flat on his belly, but that's about the only time he snores. Our cat, on the other hand, is out of control. He sounds like an old man for real. It's kind of funny actually, but super annoying when it happens in the middle of the night and I'm trying to get my sleep on!

You must post photos of Gus after his trip to the groomer, even though he didn't want to go! :) He is soooo adorable, and I cannot wait to see how he looks all dolled up! ;)

Have a fabulous day, girlie!

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

Aww, sweet Gus! Macee snores all the time! It's really funny! Jaci never has though. I always thought it was because Macee has a short snout but who knows.

Whitney said...

That last story breaks my heart!!!!
Ida Claire snores like a freaking freight train...most pugs do! But I have come to love the sound! I love Gus-isms! Keep them coming!

Katie@The Baby Factory said...

Your dog cracks me up :) And I smile everytime you say Gus' name....I just think Gus-gus :)

kimber doll said...

Your dog is so cute!! I wish I could have a dog in my condo complex, but it wouldn't be fair :*( .. Love your new pic at the top too.

Suzy said...

I don't have a dog like that but I swear that our cat could have been a dog in a previous life!

P.S. Gussy is adorable!

Mrs. Potts said...

Maddy used to snore & Hayden is starting to more often now. Pepe Cat? Not so much. I know that Mr. Potts will snore when he is really worn out or has been drinking & he sleeps on his back. I have to nudge him & he'll turn over.

KristenLisa said...

My Colby also cuddles a toy before he falls asleep too - I thought he was alone on that! He has an ALF (remember that TV show back in the day?) He wraps his front legs around it and rubs his paws on ALF's back until he falls asleep. It is the funniest thing, but SO CUTE!

carrie1 said...

Layla is the horrible with the snoring! Between her snoring and talking in her sleep (barking, whinning) it gets a little crazy at night. She runs in her sleep too, which I am always the one that gets hit because she sleeps at my feet!

Cassie said...

Awww, he sounds so cute! The whole paci this is adorable!

Hailey {HRH} said...

OMG he is packed full of personality isnt he? i think its funny both of your boys snore! neither of mine do...i guess ill have to look into getting some earplug if they start up!

Lindsey said...

hahah this is hilarious, he sucks on the stuffed dogs feet! My dog snores too!! What a fun 'kid' :)

Working Mommy said...

That is too cute that your pup has a paci!!

Beth Dunn said...

Love the snoring dog! xoxo

Jessica said...

Your pup is adorable! A friend of mine has a Boston Terrier who sucks on his stuffed toys as well.. too darn cute!

christy rose said...

Gus is adorable! Our beagle snores all the time. Sometimes even while she is awake! LOL

Gwen said...

Look at Gus with his doggy. Baxley has a dog too but his security blanket seems to be our bathroom rug. I swear to you that I wake up every morning and that rug is in bed with me. Stupid rug must have legs or something. Bax snores too but not very often. He'll stop if I nudge him though. And, like Gus, Baxley doesn't like the groomers but he loves the car ride so he'll happily go along. :) XOXO

jayme said...

Haha that's precious! Does Billy suck on the toy pup too?! Or run in the other direction when your dad comes around?!?! Haha I kid I kid. xxoo

Rasha said...

How adorable!!

Brittany Ann said...

My pups have the same reaction to baths! Terrified!

♥ sarahbeth. said...

omg i love gus! what a lil cutie! bella would love to be his new gf lol xoxo

meredith said...

gussy looks sooo cute in that picture! my puppy has a favorite toy, mr. mouse, and she can't go anywhere without him!

my puppy seriously runs away from me all the time and refuses to come when i tell her to! she thinks it's a game, and if i even try to chase her, it simply fuels her and she runs faster. drives me crazy especially when i'm trying to get ready for work!

my puppy doesn't snore, but she sometimes makes weird noises and whines when she sleeps. and she'll sometimes shake. i think she's having nightmares!

Kristin said...

Haha, my best friend had a toy maltese that sucked on his stuffed alligator toy's tail. It was so funny.

Selma said...

Now I want a dog, too, so I can tell stories. Yours is super cute!!!!! :D

Ams said...

Awwww, poor Gus!! I agree.. the groomer stinks :) But how much do you love him when he gets home from there!?
Poor puppy.
lol

Ams said...

Oh and HAPPY THURSDAY!! Why? Because it's almost Friday! woohoo :)

Whitney said...

LOL!!! Gus is sooooo cute and sooo funny! Big snores all the time. Loud, too. Pat thought it was me one time but then quickly realized it was the fur ball laying on my head.

Oh and Big has this big pink teddy bear that he ADORES. He drags her all through the condo and chews at her hoo-ha... it's quite comical.

Hello from NC. I have beem reading your blog for awhile now and this is just the right time to write and say hello and tell you about Millie my mom and dad's pug. She snores anytime but, mostly on her side. She also has those running fits too but, only because she is excited. She gets her babies and sucks on them like pacis too until she falls asleep and if she can't find one she will use her bed. As for the groomer she loves it. Since pugs shed so much she goes a lot and you just say do you want to go see Shirley and she sits down and then runs to the door and down the stairs to the car she is so excited. Hope you have a great day!!!

hahah gus has quite the personality! louie snores like an old man...no matter what position he's in. and lucy sometimes has dreams, or maybe nightmares, and she'll growl while she's sleeping. life would be so boring without the pups huh? :)

bananas. said...

Ha! That is so cute! My dogs snore big time but their bulldogs, they're supposed to snore. bodie will heave when he snores, he almost sounds human! And the same way gus reacted to going to the groomers is the way bodie reacts to going outside. Haha. Dogs are so funny.

Katy Mary said...

Awww such a cute pup!! Our kitten snores sometimes, animals are just hilarious.

Live, Laugh, Love said...

Gussy sounds so cute. I didn't think i liked dogs,but hearing about your and Tamela's dog is making me reconsider.

Annie said...

Awww Gusssy what a little cutie :)....trying to keep his mama company while she was sick. Too cute!

Katie said...

he sounds just like an only child! haha

Lil' Woman said...

Mia snores from time to time but usually only if she's been out all day and crazy active.

pocket full of pink said...

That is HYSTERICAL! Sometimes I hear little Tucker whimpering in his sleep and I just know he's dreaming about bigger dogs chasing him, it cracks me up. I hope you're having a great day, sweet girl!!

Jenni said...

hahaha that is too cute!!! Our boston, Betty, snores like crazy! haha...its more of a heavy breathing but you know shes really relaxed when you start hearing those snorts. :) I guess its more common on dogs with a short snout.

Mitzi G.!! said...

Both of our dogs snore, hubby snores & baby snores sometimes.....I have to get to sleep before they do or it will NEVER happen for me :)

katie beth said...

Thanks for following! Your blog is super cute too and I'm following you back :)

That is so funny about your little dog Gus snoring. My parents have a dog named Gus and I think its just about the cutest name ever. He breathes hard when he sleeps but I don't know if its quite up to a snoring classification!

Risley said...

oh my gosh.. too funny!
our dogs HATE the groomers too!
and snore? um we have a pug and Bulldog!
they are like 300lb men at night! we sometimes lock them in the guest room so we can sleep!

Caroline said...

My old roommate had a dog that would suck on a stuffed animal too when he was falling asleep! Weird! :)

Alicia said...

awww that's so cute!! i love that pic of him with his animal!! i'm so glad i don't have to take my dogs to the groomers!

AmberDenae said...

Awwww, so adorable!!! He is a cutie!

Dezzy Lou Where Are You said...

Reggie snores big time!

Amber said...

My dogs snore like crazy and they want to sleep right underneath me! Got to love them. :)

Ashley said...

Aww what a cute picture!! Our puppy will snore sometimes if she's in a deep sleep. It's the cutest thing. She doesn't do it all of the time though.

Meg said...

Poor little Gussy. You need to post pictures of his haircut--so it wasn't all for nothing! I can't believe the little bugger growled at you.

Both my dogs snore, Super snores quite often and Roman snores when his head is in a funky position like his neck completely extended. Sweet little snore babies.

Alison said...

Awww! Chloe snores and makes funny noises when she's sleeping too! Sometimes I think she must be dreaming!!! That picture of him with the puppy's foot in his mouth is the cutest thing! :)

christy rose said...

If you stop by and see me, I have something Gorgeous for you! :)

The Pittman's said...

My dog snores louder than anybody's dad, uncle, or grandpa.

Cute pic! And thank you for following my new blog!!

Yet said...

Very Cute dog! haha. I've never had a pet but i'm quickly learning how smart they are. Maybe one day in the future i'll get one!

Jen said...

Aww Gus is too cute!

KJ said...

HOW CUTE! And Gus's name is AWESOME!!

Jane said...

Gus! So cute. So so cute.

wife.mom.nurse said...

I just want to snuggle that little Gussy of yours :)

aLena said...

Gussy looks soo adorable in the pic ... my doggie snored a couple of time before too ... I think it's normal.

I groom my baby girl at home and she absolutely hates it ... I think she always knows when it's coming too ... poor gussy but you know how the saying goes "beauty takes pain" lol

BTW I left you a "Best Blog" award on my blog to express my L-O-V-E for you and your blog ;)

Courtney said...

Oh wow, you're dog is the cutest thing ever....that's so strange he growled at you??? My friend's German Shepherd did that paci thing with a leg on a stuffed lamb...so maybe it's a comfort thing??? Who knows?! Have a great weekend dear!

very married said...

that dog is SO cute!

Leigh said...

Hey girl!! Thanks for stopping by my blog!! Im now following yours as well. Your dog is sooo cute! Have a great weekend!

Lori said...

AWW!! That is so sad that he hates the groomer!! My parents little poodle always pity's himself when he is on the way to the groomer. I went along one time, and when we were almost at the groomers, he got off my mom's lap and went to the passengers side floor all the way in the corner. It was so sad, I had a hard time leaving him there! But he was very happy to see us when we picked him up, I guess that made it worth it!

That is the cutest picture of Gus, how funny that he sucks on the teddy bear's foot!!

Taylor @ Jimmy Choos and a Baby Too said...

Oh too cute! Hope you have a great weekend!

Perfectly Imperfect said...

my dog snores when he sleeps on his side, also known as all the time! except he's 55 lbs so it's quite the loud noise! i wonder if they do take after their dad's because my hubs is a snorer too.... hmmm..

Have a great weekend hon!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Omg- he snores!? Dying! He's so cute!

EyesToTheSkye said...

Cute! Some of the stuff he does reminds me of my little dog, Ruca. Buttt, the sucking on stuff... our Husky, Izzy, has this fleece blanket, that started out as my mom's and she took it over. But she will sit there for HOURS with her 2 front paws on it, and part of it in her mouth, just sucking on it. Eventually she will pass out with it in her mouth. I think you're the only other person to ever mention a dog sucking on something though!

Have a good weekend! =]

OceanDreams said...

Hmm, maybe I'll think twice before I commit to a snoring puppy, lol. That is too funny though and actually that was rather clever of you to get him wet to get him out of his cage! Also, him sucking on his toy is the cutest thing. Happy weekend!

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

My dog snores sometimes, but not often. She makes other werid sounds when she is dreaming. I assume she is chasing a squirrel or something in her dreams :)
Gussy is so cute with that stuffed animal. My dog loves her teddies, but I have never seen her suck them- just chew! :)

A Real Housewife said...

both of my dogs snore (SO cute!!!), and Theo does that thing with one of his stuffed animals. seriously the most adorable thing ever.

Kristin said...

Our dog, Bella, snores louder than any human! She woke up my fiance's parents at the beach last summer when they were halfway across the beach house! Its cute for a couple of days and then its annoying..LOL! We just move her into a different sleeping position to stop the snorning. She will also "cuddle" her toys and lick them like she is a mother cleaning her puppies.. it's cute ;) Your Gus is precious!!!
