There was a lot going on in that chair when I took the photo, as I think the body language suggests. I had just let little Sunny in the front door, and he raced into the living room, up the step-ramp and into his favorite chair — all apparently without looking to see that it was already occupied by Holly. He immediately turned around, not sure what to do. He sat frozen like that while I went to get the camera. Holly, for her part, couldn’t believe Sunny?had done this, and wasn’t sure what to do herself. Other than this one shot of her looking at the camera, she looked away, off into space, as if it wasn’t really happening. “Surely he will get down and leave me alone…,” she was probably thinking.
I went to get the camera, though, not because of the chair stand-off but because we’d wanted to get a photo of these two together. We joke that they look very much like mother and son, a suggestion we imagine?Holly would?get indignant about if she knew what we were saying. The resemblance is striking, even if there is no relationship between them.
I’m not sure who gave up first … both continued to stand their ground in the chair, I put the camera away and went back upstairs to the office, and somehow these two figured it out.
What looks they’re giving! Yes, they do look like they’re related. Fortunately, they can’t understand you when you are joking about it…..or do they??!!
Oh dear! 🙂
I love the photo but feel bad for Holly, but only a little bit. They look adorable together, and I’m sure she’ll come to appreciate his body heat at some point.

The resemblance is very strong. Perhaps they were able to keep on ignoring each other and co-occupy the chair peacefully. They look very snuggly together if you don’t look at their facial expressions…

That chair doesn’t look big enough for Holly much less both of them, but I’m sure they worked it out. And I love that Sunny face.

Ah, as one of my old Vet’s used to say, every time I brought in a new rescue of questionable lineage, “It’s clear as a bell, it’s the American Brown Dog.”
It’s clear they are related…….way, way…………WAY, back somewhere!
Sunny looks like he’s been a bad boy! ha…ha…
Very cute photo of these two snuggle pups.
This pix is cracking me up. The look on Sunny’s face is priceless.
