The Many Faces of Achilles

As this post goes live, Eric and I are in a rented car and on our way to Cooperstown, then Toronto, then Niagara-on-the-Lake, then Niagara Falls. Good times! We're psyched about this weekend getaway, and I hope you all have equally wonderful holiday weekend plans. Enjoy!

In the meantime, why not kick off your weekend with some cuteness? It has been a little while since my adorable mutt with issues, Achilles, has gotten a full post of blog love. And goodness knows that little guy has quite the personality on him - far too much personality to not be shared. So today, I thought we should take a look at the many faces of Achilles.

We have sleepy Achilles...:


...and awake Achilles:


Scared Achilles...


...and SCARY Achilles:


Pensive Achilles:


"I don't care if this is a New York landmark, I'm mad that I'm not walking" Achilles...


"I hate this snow" Achilles:


"I hate this coat" Achilles (also, young Achilles, before his face went gray!):


"I hate the impending changes in my life" Achilles:


"Why are they torturing me with this hat?" Achilles:


"I'm about to go crazy on those cupcakes" Achilles:


"God Bless America" Achilles:


"Holidays are exhausting" Achilles:


"I'm a psychopath and proud of it" Achilles:


"Don't bother me, I'm sleeping in the sun" Achilles:


"That sun was really hot and now I can't close my face" Achilles:


"I dare you to figure out how all this tongue actually fits in my mouth" Achilles:


"Oops, spoke too soon...I've lost my dignity with old age and can no longer keep my tongue in my mouth" Achilles:


And, my absolute favorite..."I love my Eric" Achilles:


Happy weekend!

I agree with Steph, this is calendar material! Maybe a Father's Day gift? :p He is so damn cute! My fave has got to be the "I hate this coat" pic because it's almost like he's forcing a smile. lol!

Have a blast on your trip, I can't wait to hear all about it!

Have so much fun on your trip! I love "I hate the impending changes in my life" Achilles--we all feel that way at some point during the moving process, right?!
