Resistance is futile.

Show of hands if you’ve ever been hypnotized, please.


Show of hands if you’ve ever been hypnotized by a basset hound, please.

Well, here’s my life: Quite regularly, while nestling into The Maverick with a hungry boy, Esther decides that she doesn’t like feeling left out.  No, she would prefer for the three of us to all awkwardly cram into the recliner during Bennett’s second breakfast.

Try to resist her charm:

Resistance is futile.  She always wins:

PS: That’s a delightful burp by Bennett at the very end.  Hence my praise and adoration.  I know it sounds like I’m beating him, but I swear I’m not.

    I don’t give in to a whining hound. I turn off my hearing aid.

    Phbbt, Charley just knows they will go to grandma and have their way. :p I had the headphones on for this, but the girls could hear Esther all the way in the kitchen (where they’re crated so I can dash out to pick up a few things). They gave a whimper of sympathy. 🙂

    Love It!! Me thinks that Esther is a little jealous. And are you nursing, filming and paying attention to Esther at the same time?!

    on a regular basis my bassett attempts to hypnotize me.. She stares, whines, puffs her cheeks but I have never seen the pitiful shaking that Miss Esther was doing!! Poor thing!

    She is a treasure. Just content being part of the family unit. I love her.
