modest? no. spatially oriented? no.

Cute? Yes.

For some reason, Simba often chooses to sleep across his bed rather that in it. Sometimes he's face down, with his butt up on the bed and his chin on the floor. Other times he does one of these numbers. Variety being the spice of life and all, you know, and a dog's life being a bit short of variety, what's a dog to do but make his own?

A brief update: recently, de dawg has been struggling with a nasty bacterial infection that has his listless and poopless, although he is eating and doing his Jackson Pollack imitation on the snow ... always yellow, he's a monochrome artist, this one.

The infection didn't yield to the first prescription so now he's taking cannonball pills aimed at every bug in his system. Today he seems to have perked up some, so I'm hopeful it's finally starting to help.

In the course of treating this illness, the vet introduced some especially yummy (to a dog) smelly (to people) canned dog food. I have a feeling there's no turning back; that dried dog food just isn't getting any love from the Simbug since he's had canned. I figure it's a good step toward transitioning him to the whole foods I was wanting to feed him, anyway!

So, I'd appreciate your good thoughts and prayers on Simba's behalf as he fights off this bug. It seems odd that he's gotten so sick so soon after his spinal cord injury (you can read about that here). It makes me wonder if they're connected.

Hey, dog lovers! This Sunday night, we can expect to see lots of canine hijinks over at Weekend Dog Blogging at Sweetnick's place. Head on over for head shots, tummy shots, jump shots and what nots!

Follow the links in the sidebar to lots more pictures of Simba.

Poor little bugger. Hope the infection clears up fast!

Love your blog. Esp. the photos of the step by step recipes and the doggie! What kind of camera do you use and how do post the pictures to the blog?
