This is Stanley:
Stanley is utterly adorable. He’s also very, very small. Here’s Stanley next to Lucas:
He spent the day with us yesterday. Little Stanley is only 8 pounds, literally 1/10th the size of Lucas.
It was a great day for the boys to have a new little buddy to play with. Mostly Lucas tried desperately to get Stanley to play, while Stanley was mostly interested in getting Emmett to play. Emmett did not want to play. Emmett wanted to bask in the sun.
I spend a lot of time on a typical day tripping over Emmett and Lucas. They run past me on the stairs, pop up the instant I scoot my desk chair back, follow me to the bathroom. They hover in the kitchen when I make my lunch, and squeeze themselves under my desk to nap while I work. They’re always underfoot, and due to their size, we three spend a lot of our days bumping into each other. But not Stanley. I guess being such a little guy, you get quick on your feet to ensure that no one steps on you. Plus, little dogs are wonderful at snuggling in a little fur-ball on your lap.
And, is there anything cuter than a teeny little pup hanging with the big guys?
