Freagle poses are adorable and Daisy is especially cute in her pose! Good to hear the cat is warming up to her. Phoebe pretends like she doesn't like Duke, but she can be secretly found cuddling up to him or letting him lick her face. We pretend like we never saw it!
I heard from my vet years ago that when a dog lays that way, it means they have good hips. I believe it because Roscoe always laid like that and never had any hip problems. Cassie never did and she has dysplasia in both hips. Luckily, Duke and Violet both lay that way at times.
