A photo from after Thanksgiving dinner.
The human of course has every reason to lie back -hand atop belly- and take life easy. The canine of course knows full well that he is not supposed to be on the furniture. But standards get relaxed a bit on holidays, albeit not as relaxed as either of the two family members seen above.
The dog's name is Bruce. He is the "older brother" to a toddling Next Generation. Said youngster's first word was "BRuuuuuuuuuuuu..". This gets Bruce some permanent tolerance points. Interestingly, just as Eskimos have many words for snow, Toddler has devoted about half of his identifiable vocabulary to this very important feature of his life. In addition to "Bruuu" there is a five or six syllable version of the word "Doggie". He also knows "P.U." but that could apply specifically to the dog or generally to assorted other family members including himself.
