Ow! My Balls!
by Karla ° Tuesday, June 12, 2007
Samson is not the most graceful dog on planet Earth. In the span of a year and half, our dog has evolved from a cute as a bug’s ear, six pound glutton of snuggles into a goliath-sized plunderer of pillows.

He is also special because his head is made of rocks. And since he likes to be wherever the humans are, we don’t even bother closing our bedroom door anymore because he will continuously ram his great big giant dog head into the door until someone opens it for him. And then by the time you turn around to go back to bed, he has already managed to steal your spot and fluff your pillows and rearrange the blankets just so for his morning nap.

Last weekend my brother and his fiancée came to visit. They are used to sleeping in on the weekends, but morning time around here starts at around 6:00am thanks to the addition of a tiny human that insists on eating the very second he wakes up and because we forgot the door to our guest room doesn’t shut properly and maybe also because we think it's funny, we unleashed Samson on them as soon as he finished his morning pee.

So Samson proceeded to barrel up the stairs at breakneck speed and use his big dog head to bang down their bedroom door before making like superman and lunging onto the bed to greet whatever humans were peacefully sleeping on its surface, or, land directly on my brothers crotch. Since his head is made of rocks, either option suited him just fine and apparently, Samson chose the latter.

Sorry little bro! You didn’t really need those pesky external male genitalia parts anyways did you?

And because Nate does not understand what having 85 lbs of dog landing on your balls feels like, he found it all very funny.

Oh...so cute! Is there anything better in this world than the sound of your baby boy laughing??? I think not!

I have a video of Zander sitting in his bumbo when he was about 5.5 - 6 months old, and he was laughing like a madman because I was playing peek-a-boo with him...this video of Nate reminds me so much of that...I should really post it one day...it's like 3 minutes long, but it has me in tears of laughter everytime I see it!

That was beyond infectious! Now I can't stop laughing. Nobody can understand why I want to keep having baby after baby after baby...That's the reason right there. Nate is such a happy baby!

Is it weird that I found Mark's imitation just as funny as Nate did? You've sure got your hands full with all those boys!
