Not a Happy Camper

This past Sunday we woke up early, well early for a Sunday, to watch the Australian Open final between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.  It ended up being a grueling match that lasted 5 hours and 53 minutes.  While I was delighted with the action, my dog was not thrilled that we missed our usual Sunday morning run to watch Nadal lose yet again to Djokovic.  As I sat on the couch in my pjs, Miles made it clear he was not happy.

      Thanks Sherry! I think my dog is pretty cute, but I know I am totally biased. I’m following your blog now. It is always fun to meet someone who also loves to travel.

    I wish I had watched the match, it was incredible just to hear about the next day on sports radio. I went afterward and watched highlights on ESPN dot com. Wow!

    Your dog is the cutest. Cracks me up. I forwarded the email version of your post to my wife and daughter as I know they will “awwww….” when they see him.

      It was one of the better finals matches I have seen. So many twists and turns. Both players really went at it that night. It was really unfortunate since right when Nadal turned the match around there was a rain delay. Horrible timing!

      Thanks! Miles thinks he’s the cutest as well. He gets really hurt feelings when people don’t say hi to him during his walks.

    Awww, poor little thing. His look is priceless!

    That look. Lol. So cute. He is sulking.
    I always meant to ask how they adjusted. No problem for them, not even for Atticus?

    • TBM says:

      Oh he knows how to sulk when he isn’t getting his way! They have adjusted pretty well. Both of them hated the flight over here, but since then they are back to normal. Our flat here has more windows to look out and Atticus is loving that.

    How cute! My dog loves when we sit and watch tv. I think he likes curling up under a blanket as much as I do.

    That look looks all-too familiar…

  13. Robyn says:

    Aww! He doesn’t look happy… poor guy 😛

  14. Adorable! haha and yes, his eyes says it all 😉

  15. Kame says:

    I know how you feel Miles!!! I also feel unhappy when Mommy prefer to read more than playing with me

  16. Kristina says:
