You haven’t been waiting for a puppy update? Gee, that’s too bad. You’re gonna get one.
Wile E. is doing great. She’s about 50% bigger than when we first got her, but she’s still a great size. Mr. Hallock is training her on the recall and how to sit for treats: the important things. She came to us nearly housebroken, though. We had trouble at the beginning with her destroying our power cords of all things, but with the right size chew toys, this problem has cleared up.
However, she may be a bit spoiled. This is our third spoiled dog in a row. I wonder why we always get the spoiled ones? *ahem*
This triptych of a bone steal gives you an idea of what I’m talking about. We were puppy-sitting our friends’ pooch, Shea, who is just a love bug. Notice how unhappy Wile E. (right) is with her small rawhide to start. But guess who ends up with the big bone at the end?
Shea: “What happened?”
Wile E.: (muffled) “Wuf sa maffer?”
What can I say? She’s an only dog-slash-child. But, never fear, because after playing, playing, and playing, the two curled up together to nap on the dog bed. It was so cute. I hope the pictures give you all the dopamines they do me. Happy (belated) National Puppy Day!
