My 50th post. I feel like I should write something important, but I haven’t had a post about my pups in a while. They have been extremely active.
We’ve been working on potty training, and puppy training. With the exception of my shoes, both new puppies are fairly well behaved. They haven’t picked up Domino’s dislike of strangers thankfully, and they aren’t big enough to open the back door like Blackjack does. Thankfully they are all so easy going with baby blue. Baby blue crawls over and throws himself on top of them, like he’s a wresling champ or something. He also has to crawl with them whenever they leave the house. But he doesn’t like to crawl on his knees so he does the “mogali” walk on his hands and feet. As if that’s not bad enough, baby blue loves their puppy chow. He’ll crawl over and stand in their food with handfuls in his mouth. I’m so glad the dogs are all friendly with him. It’s so funny to watch them interact. They love baby blue, but I’m not sure they realize he isn’t a pup. Each dog has a distinct personality.
Blackjack: My lovable old man. As old as a seven year old dog can be. He’s what you would call a bouncer. He’ll watch everyone play and when a fight breaks out, he charges over and puts himself in the way. When they look at him, he’s so much bigger that somehow the fight just disolves and the nice play resumes. He’s the first one to give kisses and lives for attention. He also loves kids. Halloween is his favorite holiday because kids come to the door. His favorite treat: a loaf of bread.
Domino: Supposedly a german shepard, he has all the traits and those of a terrier. He’s our protector and barker. He’s also a troublemaker and willing to play with every dog. He’ll run in circles at the park until another dog will chase him. He likes to cuddle, but only on his terms. He also likes to sunbathe. I’m really starting to wonder if he’s a cat. His favorite treat: milk.
Bear: Bear is supposed to be baby blue’s dog. He’s being trained to stay with baby blue at night. It’s so funny to hear when baby blue cries, bear will howl next to him. I walk in the bedroom to see one baby boy face and one puppy face looking over the rail of the crib. Bear is timid and curious. He watches how everyone else manages something and then when they succeed, he breezes through it, like it’s nothing. He’s also the smallest of all the dogs.Favorite treat so far: cherrios.
Gamble: Gamble belongs to BIL. He’s the bigger of the two pups and the most trouble. He’s forever getting into things and escaping. Apparently, a lot like blackjack, when blackjack was young. He loves to sleep, but when he’s awake make sure you pay attention. A little rougher than the rest of the dogs, he’s going to be a big boy. He eats all the time, and loves to play. Open the door and he’s gotta go with you. His favorite treat: my shoes.
