Duncan and his favorite spot

Duncan's Mom

Recommended Posts

Here is Duncan hanging out by the fire. We live in a 200 year old farm house with two pellet stoves, a wood stove insert, and an oil furnace. I never feel really warm when the temperature drops in the single digits. The dogs pick various spots near the stoves to keep warm. They look so content :wub:

Duncan is so sweet :wub:

How dogs love to feel the warmth of a fire :)

He's such a cutie! Our first Cairn, Willie, loved to sit right in front of my folks' wood stove. He'd lay there until he was sweating, move a little away for a while, then back he'd go for more sauna time! Packy isn't such a fan of the stove, and usually would rather lay on the couch to be up higher.

Thank you. He really is a good little boy. Yesterday he slept for about an hour on his back in front of the stove, leaning against one of the greyhound's beds so that he wouldn't fall over. All 4 legs were up in the air. I din't get a picture - my 4 year old son dropped my digital camera so it only works some of the time.

That is such a sweet picture of Duncan! Scout loves the fire (we have one going now) in the fireplace....the hotter, the better. Finch is afraid of the fire. She runs away when the wood "pops"....we call her Chicken Little...which is another whole story!

How awesome!! A 200 year old farm house is like my dream home! Can't wait to see Duncan in more nice house photos!

We heat our house with a corn burning stove, which puts the heat into the room via a blower. The stove is in our basement family room, which is usually a comfortable 78 degrees. When Barney sleeps on my lap down there, he usually sits up and pants because he is so warm! Our upstairs is a bit chilly, so when Barney and I crash on the couch, I have to pull the quilt over us. It's very cozy! I am so glad Barney likes to cuddle! It helps make up for his naughty qualities! :twisted:

All creatures great and small, the Lord God, He made them all!
