Now I am completely aware that these pictures are blurry, but my subjects were moving extremely fast. I have puppy wars going on in my house. The strawberry blond is Ellie, the 9 year old dog who tolerates Baxter, the new puppy who has no fear and thinks that every moment is a party where he is the birthday boy. Strange doggie behaviors are cropping up around here...
Ellie slyly steals one tiny tidbit at a time of Baxter's puppy food and hides them all in my daughters room...doesn't eat them, just hides them?
Baxter picks up one leaf after going potty and drops it just outside the back door before coming back in...he now has a fine collecting pile.
Ellie steals all the chewies and hides them (I don't know where?) but I do know she dislikes chewies and won't eat them.
Baxter steals all the toys and puts them on the puppy stairs that lead up to the couch...which then blocks his way to get up them. Later, he then looks at me like, "who did this and how am I supposed to get up there?"
Ellie happily plays chasing games with Baxter...only if she thinks I'm not looking, as soon as I appear, she growls at him and runs out of the room, but returns 1 minute later, guilt free.
Baxter chases Ellie behind Daddy's big chair and then runs from side to side keeping her there...the real funny part is when he fakes going right, halt switches to the left and tags Ellie's butt with his nose (hee're it!).
In between all of these entertaining events, we are potty training, teaching puppy that Mommy's hands are not for teething, constantly removing foreign objects from puppy's mouth and once again in my life...relishing nap times :)
The cute title of a newly released book: "Puppies Instead of Prozac" ^..^

Aren't our animals just a hoot?! We had a Siamese cat named Sing Too and a German Shepard name Tella who pretended to hate each other when we were around. Once in awhile we'd come home to find the napping in the sunshine with the dog curled around the cat, in obvious enjoyment of each others company. They are just too funny for us not enjoy! It is why we miss them so when they are gone.
