As you know, mum, Gypsy and I moved to a new state. We drove for hours and stayed in an apartment for one month until our new home was finished. We finally moved into our new home and mum started her new job a couple of days later. I could sense that mum was worried about leaving us alone while she was at work. Mum had a dog walker stop by at noon every day to take us out. We really like our new sitter. She takes us to her house and we get to play with other dogs. It’s lots of fun. I like to watch from the couch but Gypsy loves to wrestle with the others. It’s been a month since moving into our new home. I believe we are all well adjusted. We are all happy especially mum. We love our trips to the beaches together especially when we stop at Starbucks for puppacinos. Here are a few pics of my happy fam!
Gypsy has finally decided to play fetch. Simba has retrieved the ball or frisbee since the first day I brought her home. She was 8 weeks old. Gypsy was too worried about losing the ball to Simba. Once Gypsy gets the ball she won’t give it up and just wants to play “Simba chase me”. Now I throw two balls. One for Gypsy and one for Simba. Simba brings back the ball for more. Gypsy holds on to her and runs with Simba back and forth as Simba chases and retrieves her ball. Either way, they’re both getting the exercise they need. The other night I’m watching TV with Simba on my lap as usual and Gypsy brings her ball and releases it. From there she wanted to play fetch. Simba prefers to sit on my lap instead of playing ball. It works out perfect for Gypsy.
Gypsy is now a little over one year old. She hasn’t slowed down at all but at least the destruction has. She is fully aware that she has done something wrong but just can’t seem to help herself. I believe she has learned right from wrong but every once in a while the puppy brain takes over and wins over her logic. One and a half weeks before Thanksgiving, my oven/stove went on the brinks. The technician came a stated that the electronic panel (the oven’s brains) had to be sent in to be refurbished because they don’t carry replacement for that model anymore. All was fine until he said it would take 3-4 weeks to get back. That would not do! Thanksgiving was a week away! Besides not being able Continue reading →
First night home for Gypsy and it was time for bed. I laid on mum’s left side as I always do. I like to stretch out right up against her under the covers and my head on my pillow. Mum has her pillow and I have my own pillow. This is how I have been falling asleep for eight years. Last night, my puppy sister wanted my spot! Mum would pick her up and lay her on the other side of her. I would get all comfy under the blanket and suddenly boom!Continue reading →
Dogs Will Be Dogs – Jackson was named after Jackson Hole. It’s no wonder he loves to hike. Hiking is a great way to keep your dog active and fit. It also helps wear them out for a bit when they’re active puppies. Those of you that have active puppies know exactly what I’m talking about.
