Yogi's hobbies:

* snorting
* parading around with things in his mouth
* protecting life and limb from the little blue heeler (Tater) who lives across the road when he comes over here to hunt rodents
* stealing kisses
* boxing
* sitting on the top step of the front step with his front feet on the second step buffing at anything that goes by
* showing his fearsomeness by standing by the fence when The Large Monsters (horses) are standing on the other side

Lady's hobbies:

* protecting me from trucks by barking whenever there's one within three miles of me
* looking mildly disturbed whenever Yogi snorts
* sitting extremely daintily and posing, just in case someone is looking
* keeping me carefully informed about the status of food depth in her bowl
* keeping an eye on me while she's supposedly sleeping
* sitting next to me whenever I'm gardening
* showing her fearsomeness by standing by the fence when The Large Monsters (horses) are standing on the other side

Lily's hobbies:
Doing everything she can to get all the attention possible ...Her slogan "It's all about me"
Pestering her brother Gibbs as much as possible, poor boy.

Gibbs hobbies:
Hanging out, he is so laid back
Trying desperately to ignore his annoying sister, but being such a sweetie and putting up with
her "terrible twos" antics

I love them both so much, so different, so entertaining, so loving...

Dudley & Minnie, shared hobbies:

1. Outdoors, running from one side of the house to the other as anything goes by in order to get in maximum barking time. In the process, creating/expanding/deepening the mud track that used to have grass on it.
2. Tracking mud throughout the house after every 'barking run' because we have a doggy door. <_<
3. Hound Wrestling!
4. Three a.m. barking. :angry:

Minnie's hobbies:
1. Being afraid of things: crinkly plastic, all dog toys, buckets, the garden hose, who knows what's next? :huh:
2. Meeting people who will pet her, which is basically everyone.
3. Sneezing on me. My ankles usually.
4. Hunting critters in the backyard, kills I know of: 1 garter snake; 3 chipmunks; 1 half-grown rabbit.
5. Hiding her treats/rawhides from Dudley.
6. Demanding to be petted by giving The Look combined with a nasally whine she has mastered.

Dudley's hobbies:
1. Finding and stealing everything Minnie hides.
2. Burying rawhide toys outdoors.
3. Bringing the same rawhide toys back in the house 3-6 months later, when they are "Properly Aged" and covered in mud.
4. Following Dad around everywhere.
5. When on walks, peeing on every bush that has thorns on it! :eek:

Dad's hobby:
1. Picking up poop. :lol:

Josés is a simple guy... with simple hobbies:
  • Sleeping, preferably in sunshine
    Nightly ceremonial Parade of the Big Bone
    Digging holes to China on the rug
    Seasonal hobby (October through March): leaping on anyone's lap who sits down
José unfortunately is under the weather (I posted in Health & Genetics) and we are hoping that one day soon he will be able to resume all above hobbies.
Let's see.......Baxter loves to give kisses, do the Basset 500 at least once a day, steal socks, inhale his breakfast/dinner, pestering our 14.5 year old Lab :angry: , stealing BJ's toys right out of his mouth (another Lab) :eek: , and follow me every where I go! :lol:

Oh, yeah... Moe likes to sunbathe in the driveway. Sunny-side-up! It's indecent, the way he flaunts what he has for all the world to see! ;) Before his belly-hair got thick I used to have to sunscreen his belly (and other exposed parts) to prevent sunburn. :blink:
