A new sheriff in town

Come to momma

I have to lead the post by saying I finally got everything migrated to my new computer. I can’t say that it was painful because Apple makes it as easy as possible. It was daunting however. Trying to find all of the preferences and make sure everything loaded correctly was nerve-wracking, but I did it.

Crystal and Timber

This has become a completely normal sight and sound in the house now. They’ve even gotten lazy. Crystal lays on a cushion and Timber lays on the floor beside her while they growl and bark and bite at each other.

The meld

Sometimes they become so entangled, I worry about the jugulars but they are so gentle with each other. Timber is amazing with her. He’s far more gentle than she is.

This behavior pretty much drives the rest of the dogs crazy. Since the greyhounds thrive on a pack mentality, I could never let them all play.

Enter Sheriff Barney

Barney is the fun police and when he has had enough of their horsing around he does his best to shut them down.

Yup, there is a new sheriff in town.

    Sometimes the sheriff needs to make an appearance to keep order. I think Barney should have a little sheriff’s star on his collar. I do appreciate that Apple made migrating data easy, but I double-checked everything too.

    Barney doesn’t look too serious, though!!

    Boooo to the fun police! Besides, Timber has a protective layer of fur – those wolf hounds needed to be tough! It is nice that he realizes his “sister” needs a bit more care. But that could be a guy/girl thing. We did a lot of play dates with Beau (pre-Zachary) and he was always extra nice to the girls. 🙂

    Did you get a new Happy Light?

    Congrats on the new computer! I envy you!

    Crystal and Timber crack me up! It looks like those two crazy kids are nuts about each other. Why, oh why does there always have to be an officer from the fun police who shows up to spoil the fun?

    These romps crack me up. Great photos capturing all the action.

    Jared spent an obscene amount of time wrastling and tumbling and play fighting with Timby. He had to learn quick to be gentle with those teeth. Jared got some good (play)bite marks in him before Timby got the picture. I know I’ve said it before, but I’m soooo happy he has a rough housing buddy!
