I Give Up! Yawn…
~The Innocent or maybe not so much
This turd turned 1 September 26! He loves going for walks, camping, playing in the water, chasing the kids around the yard and sleeping on the couch.
It took quite a while for our other dogs to stop being grumpy with Duke, but for probably the last 6 months, they’ve stopped growling at him and they often play together.Duke is a talker, he doesn’t bark excessively, but he definitely likes to voice his opinion! You can tell when he’s trying to get Laverne or Shirley to play with him, it’s a whiny bark.We got him fixed at about 10 months and he did really well. I tried to keep him rested and not let him run around too much, but he really wasn’t having any of that! He loves to be outside!
In The Woods
I just wanted to send this video of Berkley I shot the other day. She loves the woods.
Hope you are well. Thanks for all you do for so many! Berkley is never far from us–like now, she is snuggled up next to me. Here is a photo of her with our daughter, Nora. They make a cute pair, right?
Just a quick note to let you know that my sweet, loving, energetic and manipulative Pushkin graduated from the novice obedience training class tonight. He received a score of 94 out of 100 points. Half of the test was done off leash. We start the advanced class sometime in September. A great 9-month birthday present.~Marie
Jorja is loving up on her “interim” Mom, Emma. Arleen and Emma took care of her until she could make the journey to Belgium. She hasn’t seen Emma since she was 16 weeks old, but she remembered her. Jorja was a trouper, she made the 8 hrs flight from Brussels to Chicago, hopping into her crate with ease. Through customs in Chicago, back into her crate after a drink and potty break for the 6 hr. flight to Portland, OR. She was happy to see cousins Arliss (Arleen’s Blue), Auto and Izzy. She seems to have a crush on Arliss.
Jorja is happy and loving her new home 🏡. Her new favorite word is beach. She and I have started walking with a ladies walking group. She loves to run, greet people as well as other dogs. One lady calls her the new LB greeter. Not to forget the birds–she still loves them too.I am thrilled with her approach to the water. She also hasn’t been in the water since at Arleen’s when a puppy, but she is in it now! It is going well. We are home near family, she has adjusted. We are doing well.~Eileen
~Ready For Bed
List a Caption for this snapshot in the comments.
I was thinking “Don’t shake the bed.”
What a great photo–thanks Mikelle. I am glad you and your best friend share so much.
A Good Fit For Us
~Loves Her Routine/Gets Into Everything!
and his Tiny Hyoomans
Its been awhile since I sent an update. So I thought I’d share a couple of tidbits with you.
Colby decided that there was juuuuust enough space to squeeze into my chair with me for some lovins. Then, the tiny humans decided that there was room for them, too. So we took a few photos. You can see his enthusiasm as the photo shoot progressed. He still refused to budge from his perch, though! He’s a very patient big brother. As soon as the tiny humans left, he got comfy again and stayed a while longer. He got up for a potty break, but as I am sitting here writing this, he has found his place back on my lap for another morning siesta. What a ham!
Here is a video of him eating an ice cream cone. This is something I have never done. But after a series of events that led us to the vet’s office, I decided to help him unload his stress by hiding his first dose of meds in an unexpected treat. He had no complaints. Feel free to share on your blog if you’d like!Colby is a little lonely since our lab passed away and we have been looking into finding him a new companion. We are considering another weim and would like to look into possibly getting on the waiting list for another pup when I get home from my deployment in January.
Guess who’s birthday it is!
We are heading to the beach this weekend for his birthday weekend at his favorite place! He literally goes crazy and into a frenzy at the sight of the sandy beaches.
