How can this possibly be comfortable?

I don't know what else to say. This is a new variation of Cersei's favorite pose, on her back with legs akimbo.


  1. Well, it doesn't look comfy to us, but it must be if you're a dog. I woke up to find my heeler dog sprawled out in the middle of the bed pretty much just like this last night. Except that all four of her paws were more up in the air. I really like your dog's name. what does it mean? Cersei sounds like the name of some mythological goddess or really cool creature.


  2. Hehe... that does NOT look comfortable. :)


  3. I think her name is intended to be a variant of Circe, the witch. It's from the (really amazingly good, like, Tolkien quality) fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire.

    Cersei and Jaime are blonde twins in the books. They're royalty, and pretty horribly evil yet likeable in a way. I found a handsome yellow Lab-hound mix on the side of the road a couple years ago and named him Jaime - when I was offered a little girl Lab pup, Cersei was a no-brainer.

    Jaime had to go live in the country. He was completely uncivilized and I'm pretty sure uncivilizable. I kept him for over a year and I'm not entirely sure he ever learned his name. And he never got housebroken. And he barked, a lot. Giving him up was one of the harder things I've had to do - I felt like a failure, but he was absolutely driving me mad.

    My dad took him to some friends in the country, where he's a lot happier being a yard dog.

    Cersei is the polar opposite of Jaime. She is the calmest Lab puppy I've ever met. She listens to me and knows quite a bit of English. And she's obedient and pretty social with dogs and doesn't play too rough with the cats and loves kids and d'awww, I love my Cersei.

  4. OOOOOOh. I will have to check out those fantasy books.

    I love good names. ;-) Had a hunch the name of your dog had a story.

    My two heelers are hideously uncivilized critters. I'm hoping when they hit age 3, they will have settled somewhat. But I love the devils anyway.
