The Week's Gone By So Fast, And So Its Time Again For Selfies On Sunday!

Wow. Time flies by when you are busy with a puppy...almost forgot it was Sunday and time for selfies...Phew, we remembered and got a few...MOL/BOL!
What *is* funny, though is that the pups' selfies from outside show green (Well not too green) and no snow, but of course the pics were made during the week on petcretary's days off...when there was no snow...but now there is a dusting. We were blessed...we not having the current snowstorm hit our area, other than maybe an inch or so. Where pawppy comes from (Wash, DC.), and many areas to the south of us, well they did get dumped on! We are not too sorry about living in Michigan right now, the Winter Wonderland...really?? MOL/BOL! Probably we will get our comeuppance soon enough. Weather is like that, you know.

So were are having lots of fun, and Pipo, too, comes by to sniff us now and then. Benji is mostly calm and not too interested in chasing him, so maybe at some point they will be tolerant and OK with each other? We can hope!

Today at dinnertime, we gave Benji a supervised rawhide roll. He loves them but teds to chew themm up really fast. So after a while, the thing was all soft and slobbery...and petcretary heard a funny noise like a cough. YIKES! Benji was trying to swallow that thing whole. She reached into his mouth and had to pull it out...into the bin it went. Phew! Close call!
Dalton chews on them a bit then leaves them until later for another brief chew, he doesn't try to eat them all up.
So no more free access to those things. Only allowed under close and strict 'snoopervision'.

There was a fat squirrel in the yard this morning under the bird feeders...and we showed it to Benji through the window. Then we let him outside, but he just stood there...BOL! He has lots to learn about yard guard duty! Dalton gave chase but that smart varmint was long gone, BOL!

Well, here are some selfies...Pipo's is a flashback, not sure if it was posted in an earlier post, but reruns are fun anyways! He did not want to takeone today, he kept putting his head down...even the IPhone camera bothers hm...still never sing flash. He is just bashful, MOL, MOL!
Hopefully in a month's time he will let some Gotcha Day selfies be made...we got him a special tie to catabrate in style.

Sorry for the poor lighting of the indoor images...

I see you down there, benji...

I think there is a kitty making sure I don't try to sniff him or chase him up there...ready to whap me, I think...

Pipo, in his 'cubby'
Lets give this coonie a good ripping tug of war!
 A series of loving brofurs kissies and dogversations...

Can I have some of that, too, Petcretary?!

I, Benji am long...and lean!
Hi, Mom...oops, I mean petcretary!

Hi! Petcretary thinks I could use a good brushing...what is that?
I think this will be my official Dalton selfie this week:)

I may look 'baby' but...I am over 7 months old...

Sheesh, Petcretary, those dogs are sure a crazy pair...

Busy Times At Our Den Sunday Selfies

Yup, it sure *is* super busy here. Dalton has to teach Benji all kinds of things about life here, and he had to even teach him about our doggie doors. But he is a stubborn terrier, and so he didn't give up, and finally Benji has figured them out! And when petcretary had to do her vacuuming chores, he realized those doors were handy for a panic exit, BOL!
Petcretary and pawppy are dealing with a puppy who has to learn everything, including potty now we are having a den full of gates and pens and crates. Sheesh...but some days we do not have accidents, and its only been a week, so hooray, we are on the right track. At first Benji found it difficult to *go* when he was taken outside, but with some treats and encouragement he's doing much better. He is learning the come and sit commands too...soon we will add some stay and lie down. We had to remove all the rawhide chews here, cause he just devours those. Yikes! And any doggy toys with items on them that can be removed are the victims of his teeth, they had to be removed as well. Just like a human toddler...everything gets into his mouth...he sampled pawppy's computer cord too...oopsie. Brought back memories of Minko...

Dalton and Benji get along really well, sometimes they curl up in the open crate, or on a doggy bed, or they play tug of war. When outside the game of chase is fun, and so is I am going to steal your stick... They go on walks, and while Dalton is a great puller, and leaves plenty of pee-mails, Benji is calmer and walks nicely most of the time. He is frightened by loud traffic though, which is hard to avoid since some of our two mile hikes are along the highway in our village.

At the vet on Friday, he was loved on by all the staff, and he lapped it up! Dalton went along for the ride and social time and he too had fun there. A vet trip with no agenda for Dalton...Benji was declared a healthy if a wee bit 'lean' pup.

Pipo seems curious about this big galoot that ambles about, and ignores him, MOL! So maybe they might become friends...or at least be tolerant of each other the way MJF was with both kitties when he was a youngster.

Pipo still has the whole living room and pawppy's office for his private use. So he can rest in peace away from the  canine crazies, MOL! His eating an bathroom habit seemm unchanged, so we think he is not too stressed with our new addition.
Lets wrassle!

Phew, gotta catch our breath!

Lets go again...

Grrr, you bet!


A selfie stop...

Petcretary says this one was great!

Benji had a go at it too...

Pardon petcretary's ear muffs...and bulky coat, it was a cold windy morning...but she said, I, Benji made a good selfie

I am glad you haven't yet taken away all the soft decorations...

Your potholders make nice pillows!! If you leave them out, I will appropriate them!
