Josephine Loves Sunshine

Josephine is addicted to sunshine. Pugsly, as her ever-faithful companion, enjoys it on cold days and tolerates it on warm ones; either way, he's by her side. Right now they're sunbathing in the bedroom; it's their mid-afternoon sun spot.

It's been three months since we moved, and three months of record rainfall, so this past week has been Josephine's first opportunity to stake out her napping spots in our new house. Making it complicated: our south wall is 10 feet from the neighbor's. We only get direct sun when the sun's path and the neighbor's roof and the position of our windows create a "sunbathing trifecta." Josephine, as an avid sun worshipper, follows this trifecta throughout the day. 8-9am: Living room floor, through east window. 10am-1pm: Office floor, through south window. Necessitates me rearranging various post-move junk from left to right and back again to clear the floor for the sun's path. Fun. 1-4pm: Bedroom floor and bed, through south window. Josephine's very fond of the sunshine/down comforter combo, but she also can't seem to learn that dachshunds shouldn't jump off beds. So she's only allowed up for supervised napping, like this photo shoot. Wow, was she annoyed when I interrupted her! Still, isn't she pretty?

I think I'm in love with Josephine.
