The Many Laughs of Finn

Finn is a pretty happy kid.  We can do almost anything to make him laugh.  Or, we often don’t have to do anything and he laughs.  But we are generally pretty silly folk so making him laugh just gives us an excuse to be weird (“it’s for the children”).  Here are some examples we managed to get on film…

1)  Wake-up Laugh (On the lawn in Kaua’i).  He is this way every time he wakes up from a nap or a 10 hour nighttime sleep.

2)  Aggressive pounding freak out Laugh (on the red couch)

3)  Swinging Laugh (in his swing – not for the vertigo-weary)

Oliver the Grey becomes Oliver the White

We go out on vacation, and Oliver gets his typical wearing out with the other dogs at the Seattle Canine Club (please use your best Thurston Howell, III voice when you speak this location).  Unfortunately he often comes home with a little extra Giardia, kennel cough, fleas, bronchitis, and any other ailment that may cause unexpected expulsion of bodily fluids (ewwww). That is only sometimes though.  This time it was bronchitis and a 103.7 fever, but I digress.

It is however guaranteed he will come home not white but full on greasy grey.  This past trip was no exception.  Pictures to prove it – you can tell he even is ashamed of his mess!

Before…sad grey Ollie
