The Stuffed Animal Wars

Yes, my house has become a war zone.  It's a throwdown of baby vs. basenji vs. basenji, all vying for sole possession of whatever stuffed and/or fluffy items have the misfortune of making their way to the floor.  If baby happens to be the winner, the stuffed victim gets a good wet drooling on, but generally makes it out of the encounter unscathed.  But if basenji happens to be the winner.... well, you all know what that looks like. 

Most of the time, the dogs are pretty good about deferring to the baby and allowing him to steal their toys and "own" most of the stuffed animals in the toy box.  But every once in a while, something extra tempting comes along, and all bets are off.  Even fluffy hats are fair game when they're within dog-height reach! 

Reef attempts to steal Declan's fluffy hat. 
So, in addition to playing cook and clean-up crew and constant hug-giver, my role as mom to my three 20-lb miscreants now includes "referee" as well.  Let the stuffed animal wars commence.

    1. LOL - no, it's just a fluffy hat with little points on it. My one-year-old wasn't a huge fan of it, but the dog was :-)

  2. Reef's a beauty, and declan quite the fashion statement.
    thanks for posting your cuties.

  3. What a funny picture and I think we all know what happened 2 seconds after you took it hahahah. It must be very entertaining at times living at your house!

  4. Ha! "Entertaining" is putting it nicely. Most of the time I feel like I live in the midst of a 3-ring circus!
