My Busy Bee Week

There were so many places to go and people to see and dogs to meet this's almost a blur.

Let's see...Last Monday I went to the vet's office for a check-up and a shot. Ummmm...OUCH! I'm not a very big fan of shots, but foster mom held me and hugged me and told me that I was very brave about the whole thing, and besides, it was over in no time anyway.

I met a new friend while I was at my check-up. I think I heard the people there calling him "Lefty". I guess he works there too and his job must be to check in with all of us patients to see if we need anything, or perhaps just see if we want to play while we're waiting. I liked Lefty!

I also noticed that foster mom makes me practice my lessons every single day, no matter where we are. I guess there's no such thing as 'Sunday is a day of rest' around these parts. Here I am practicing my "down" while waiting for the doc to show up. I did a good job, huh?

I also made another friend this week. A fellow puppy named Pippin. I am sooooo very lucky and totally excited to have so many nice friends. Life is good!


P.S. You know how it says on my shelter bio that I weigh 15-lbs and that I'm 11 weeks old? Well, that was a few weeks ago (almost a month ago maybe). Here's the latest update on my stats...I'm a slightly bigger boy now! A 26-lb 'hunka love muffin / snuggle bully / lap dog'.

Helping Around the House

I keep hearing this phrase around here that "Nothing in Life is Free" (NILF). Hmmm ... For I while I didn't really understand what that meant, but I think the lightbulb above my cute lil' head just turned on. My foster family wants me to learn to follow the house rules, and learn good manners, and earn things, so that I will be the best puppy / dog that I can be.

Allrighty then! I think I will make them proud and start my day off by helping to do some chores around the house...

I will help to Take Out the Recycling...

I will also help by Shredding the Junk Mail...

Who needs a paper shredder when sharp little puppy teeth work just as well?! :)

Happy Halloween !

Mom says, "Thank doG for the miracle of cheese, for without it, it would be nearly impossible to have two dogs plus one puppy all posing pretty and looking so cute & charming for the camera without chewing the costumes off."

P.S. Has anyone else noticed how Theo (aka Gulliver) has completely velcroed himself to my side? I guess I attract dogs! :)
