Rainy Dog

Several days into the month of December, we received the first big rainfall of the season. Temperatures have dropped, clouds have formed, and our walks with Palmer have become quite soggy! This morning was the first time we pulled out our doggie's raincoat since last winter and I was immediately reminded of how adorably silly Palmer looks. Thanks to Auntie Alyssa and cousin Oreo for the raincoat as last year's Christmas gift.

A few weekends ago, Genessee took some pictures of us around Pasadena. They were mostly of Johnny and me but this morning, she emailed me a preview of this adorable picture of Palmer.

Still a lazy dog...

When we first adopted Palmer, he had a relatively low-energy and slow demeanor. He never barked and never jumped and always seemed to find his way to the corner of the room to sleep. We thought he was just a lazy dog and that was that. Fast forward to today... 2 years after his adoption. We have since learned that his behavior during the first several days at home was really only a transition and that soon enough, his true personality would shine! Today, we know Palmer as happy-go-lucky, silly, cuddly, sweet, mischievous, a food monster, a major lovebug.... all of that... and also still, at times, a very very lazy dog. Here are some pictures to prove it:

I walked into our bedroom the other day and this is what I found. I promise.

Is... he... really... sleeping???

He is knocked out! Take a picture with him!
