Meet Brady. Wow, where do I start? Brady is truly like no other dog I have ever met. He is a huge sweetheart. He loves to give hugs & kisses, and he even thinks he is a lap dog - all 95 lbs of him. As you can see in the picture above, Brady thinks anything you lay on the ground (including a dish towel) can be made into a bed. By looking at the picture above and the one right below, you would think that Brady sleeps like most dogs, curled up in a cute ball, but you would be wrong.

If Brady isn't sleeping with one of his's quite possible that you will find him sprawled out on his back, hind legs flopped open (we think he must be double-jointed), with one leg stretched up in the air and his mouth hanging open.

As you can see, Brady is definitely not a modest dog, but he provides endless hours of entertainment. He has slept like this ever since he was a little puppy, but no matter how often I look over to find him asleep on his back like this, I can't help but break out into a fit of laughter. I mean, seriously?

Ok, stop laughing (if you can)...

Brady really is one-of-a-kind. He not only gives "high fives", he's even learned how to give "high tens" and he has mastered the art of rolling over. He has an insatiable appetite, and if Cooper leaves his food unattended for too long, you can bet that Brady will devour it. Brady will eat ANYTHING. Sometimes we test him out just for fun (all dog-friendly items, of course), and I don't think that we've found anything that he won't eat - probably because he doesn't slow down long enough to taste what we're giving him.

We call Brady our quarterback. He's very handsome (and the girls love him) and athletic. He can run & swim faster than you can imagine, and we're pretty sure he could win the jumping contest off the dock on the ESPN Dock Dog Challenge. When it comes to retrieving or obeying commands, however, he's not the brightest kid in the class. We know he's smart, but he kind of does his own thing, at his own pace. 

We love you, Brady boy!


  1. Sophie sleeps on her back, too! She'll roll over for anyone. The Jefferson Animal Hospital nurses call her "hoochie poochie" - it's pretty funny.

    Brady is such a sweet doll of a boy!

  2. That's so funny! You'll have to share a picture if you have one.

    So glad that they liked the treats, too :) We had a great time at the bake sale!

  3. Awww, he's so sweet. I love following your blog. Your boys always make me smile. :)
