Strange, but cute
This is Marley with her favorite toy, a stuffed leopard. We call him Leppie. Marley likes to carry Leppie around the house, whining until she finds a place to "bury" him. Sometimes it's under a pillow or blanket, or sometimes it's just in a corner somewhere. The whole burying thing is very important to Marley - if she doesn't like the spot, she picks up Leppie and continues whining until she finds a better spot. When she finally does bury him, Marley makes sure to cover him up as much as possible. It's pretty cute, actually, because she uses her snout to push things on top of Leppie. When she's done, you can just see the sense of accomplishment on her little puppy face. So she goes on to play with another toy until she decides Leppie needs a new hiding place.
I could go on and on about the crazy things Marley does around the house, but I realize I probably seem pretty silly for going on and on about her and Leppie. Sorry.
I don't know how we managed to get such a goofy puppy. But man, she sure is cute.
