Do you ever feel like you have your own language or terminology when it comes to your dog? Somehow, inexplicably, it started the minute we got Captain. I've mentioned this before, but for some reason, my husband and I started referring to each other as "Mommy" and "Daddy" around Captain. There was no helping it; right from the start, it was "Captain, where's Daddy?" or "Go get Mommy." There was no discussion. No thought. We were insta-parents. And from there, a whole slew of Vizsla/Captain/dog terms grew. Vizslology, if you will. (That's supposed to be "Vizsla Terminology" smooshed together) ;-)
Here's our version the Vizsla Dictionary...

There's something that happens fairly often in our house. Something comes over me. Captain stares, and stares, and stares...
...until I give him what he wants. Call it The Vizsla Stare-Down, call it Vizsla Mind Tricks- whatever you call it, It's a Vizsla Thing ;-)
Can you blame me? The force is STRONG in this one, I tell you.

All paws, ears, and cuddles on a Sunday morning.
There are so many little things I love about Captain, besides just the usual Vizsla Things (the most amazing wiggle butt greeting, big soft ears, their overall look, their velcro-dog personality). One is quite simply the way he sleeps.
Sometimes he makes these little whimpering/laughing noises, like "mmmhmmmhmmmm" as he's sleeping- who knows what he's dreaming about- maybe chasing squirrels- but it's just too cute. Then there are the times he uses his paws to wipe his eyes, or when he rubs his head against the side of our bed in the morning. Or when, every time I turn on my hairdryer, he comes running to be beside me.
It's the little things ;-)
Happy Weekend to you!
What are your favorite little things?

Happy New Year! Captain's resolutions? To take over the bed completely, hone his Jedi mind tricks to get more treats, and to finally put those darn squirrels in their place ;-)
We had some friends over to celebrate, and Captain spared no time cuddling up to all our guests :)
