I must confess, having puppies in the house equates to never having a dull moment. These have un-ending energy. And, just when I think they are winding down, their two-minute power nap has re-charged their batteries for another un-ending play session. They crack me up every minute of every day.
Just when I think their batteries are running down, they take a two-minute power nap and they are off again. Running, chasing and just a whole lot of rough and tumble. I can’t help but sit in the middle of the action and just watch them play. They really are a ton of fun.
Every once in awhile, we will catch those sweet and tender moments that bring a tear to our eye, hardly believing how lucky we are to have a puppy or two in our life.
How could anyone possibly say no to this face?
Apparently Glory thinks Sage needs a hat. He agrees.
Are you tired of puppy pictures yet?
Just for the record, when my daughters were but young pups I documented nearly every day of their first year too, and yes I know right where those photos are.
These two are growing like weeds. Faster than the weeds in our backyard. We are discovering that their batteries are lasting longer too before they crash. But the minute they crash, it probably has to be the sweetest thing in the world.
Oh, if they could just stay little.
According to Facebook, the little toe was designed specifically to Geo-locate furniture in low light conditions.
I personally can attest to that fact.
Apparently, so can Cinderella.
It started with a limp. The kind that sends the fear of panic into us. Then, we noticed some swelling in the foot. We had a few run ins with spider bites, so we just assumed that we were dealing with another spider bite.
Even with antibiotics, the swelling didn’t go down so we were off to the vet clinic, our home away from home.
A little touchy feelie by the vet and she was off for xrays.
Poor little pumpkin has broken her toe. There really isn’t much you can do with a broken toe and it is typical of a racing injury. We are guessing she probably did it while running around like a wild woman.
Never fear little one. We will get you back to as good as new.
Ever so slowly we are letting the puppies play with the other dogs. Zippy is incredibly gentle with them, but I still remain the nervous nelly and probably overly cautious.
We took the puppies out for a few meet and greets today and they are amazing with people. So sweet and loving.
I find it hard to believe that they are going to be as big as Zip… soon.
We took them shopping for chew toys today. The pig ears were a huge hit.
Sage and Glory are our first puppies. Up until this point, Karen and I have always adopted adult dogs. We’ll always have room for seniors, we love them so much. But oh how we love these puppies.
Life is different in puppy land. Having two makes so much sense. They play and play, chase and chase, tug and tug… and then, they just crash. Freight trains, vacuum cleaners, other dogs… during the crash phase of life nothing seems to bother them.
Sadly, one of the legs on this spider didn’t make it through the intense game of tug. As soon as it came off, they looked, dropped and started tugging on the other legs.
Bitey neck seems to be the favorite past time of these two.
Sage seems to enjoy the bitey neck game best of all, but rest assured, Glory gets her licks in too.
See? I told you so.
And when they start to wind down, Sage is the most loving and adorable puppy on earth. Of course he was really cooperative after he peed on my backdrop.
And Glory will grow up to be our little princess.
The babies had a blast playing in the backyard this morning. The weather was cool and the skies were overcast. I’m thinking just maybe Glory stepped on Sage’s paw.
They played a little tug-o-war.
But mostly, they played chase.
We had a very uneventful trip across the country and back. We picked up our little packages in Plant City, Florida and jetted back across the country without any problem at all. The babies were awesome in the car.
They just turned five months old on July 19. And they are growing like weeds.
We made it to Brigham City, Utah today. Another 620 miles clicked off of the road trip. We’ll be home soon. Our trip has been amazing and we both have loved every minute even if we spent it in the car.
Wyoming hasn’t changed since I lived there so many years ago. It’s still windy. I-80 had a ton of road construction, but we were able to jet across the state at 80 mph for most of the time.
The babies were meant to be models. The sunset wasn’t much, but they gave me the best pose they could.
