Sunday Selfies

We are being truly silly, BOL!
 Wow, a week has gone by yet again. Time sure goes by fast when you are busy!

Dalton is settling in a bit, but...he has big issues with Pawppy.
He growls and barks at him, and even bit him when Pawppy tried to put a leash on him.  OUCH!
So we are at square one with what we are doing in that area. Pawppy feeds him, and other than that tries to ignore him. Dalton needs to know that good things come from Pawppy...and he needs to see that petcretary feels safe around him too...and also me, and Pipo. Goodness only knows what will happen when he sees Boss Boy later today. I will let you know!
Actually he warmed up to my Boss Boy. The way through to a pups heart is through his stomach...hmmm. He is still furry wary of Boss Boy, but he didn't growl, and he let himself be petted a bit:)
Too bad Pawppy cannot sit on the floor that well, he has an artificial hip which makes squatting and floor time hard to do.
Dalton likes to steal petcretary's shoes...the stinky work shoes and her house sandals...he ran off with one today while she was in the shower, BOL! At least I don't do *that* anymore...
He loves to try and steal my noms, too if he has a chance...and last night he did...petcretary furgot to lift my bowl when I walked away from it...and later she saw Dalton standing there licking his chops and my bowl was sparkling clean and empty! Oopsie!
We like to go and explore the backwoods area of our yard, and while I might just stand there and think and stare, he jumps around, pouncing on leaves that blow or little bugs that fly or jump. He digs a bit too, but nothing like I was apt to do back there.

We both helped petcretary clean up bushels and bushels of those awful black walnuts. Right now she is working on the ones that fall near the house, but in the back area it is like walking on slippery ball bearings! Yuck. They are all full of worms, and there is no way they are going to be eaten by any human, but maybe some squirrels might enjoy them, as they are dumped into our wood pile. The woodpeckers and other birds might love to feast on those juicy worms...Blech! Petcretary says anyone who plants walnut trees in these parts is cuckoo:) They are evfur so messy, tomatoes don't grow anywhere near them, and they are not the best shade either. Right now one needs a hard hat to be underneath them...Yikes! Long time ago, petcretary had a hole put in her windshield from one of those walnut bombs.
I'm glad that walnut didn't really fall on my head, OMD!!! Maybe I am a seal??  ...and no this was not photo-shopped nor did petcretary plan this image...its 'serendipity'!!
Petcretary has made another observation about Dalton: He doesn't like wetness. So...she has found poo-poo by the back door, on the carpet on the days when the rain is falling...Oh-oh! That is a no-no!! So last night while it was storming, she put him on a leash and took him outside to do his business...
He of course wasn't too impressed but after both of them got really wet...he did what he as supposed to. Then he came in and sulked, BOL! Me?? I just run out and get done as fast as I can:)

Pipo is getting braver and comes out from the living room (a doggy free zone), and comes to get pets and playtime with petcretary and goes to sit on pawppy's lap too. He has not had much to do by way of interactions anymore with Dalton.  Not sure who is avoiding who, BOL!

Hi, Petcretary, I am beside you at your desk! Its great not to be hiding in the livingroom...
We made some more cards for furs, these at least were happy ones:)
Sammy And Joanie can be visited here.

Miss Boo can be visited here.

We are hopping along with The Kitties Blue, who are the weekly hosts of this fun blog-hop.


  1. Mee-you Mistur Jack an Pipo mee had NO idea you all so got a new Brofur! Well come Dalton doggie! You are berry hansum an mee LadyMum sayss you have 'bedroom' eyess...what efurr those are?
    Mee iss berry sick at thee moment so if mee not around do not take it purrsonallee. LadyMum has her paws full with mee care.
    Sinseerlee, Purrince Siddhartha Henry =^,.^=

    1. We here hope you strat to improve, Sid Henry. Sick is not fun at all.

      Bedroom eyes, BOL, BOL!!

  2. Hi everyone. Eww those nuts sound horrid! Worms are for the birds and not humans or cats and dogs. Thank goodness you caught that nut on your nose, Mr Jack, If it had hit your head you could have needed stitches! Heres hoping the little one, Dalton, realises who his pawppy is very soon as and gets used to the rain as I'm sure your peeps don't want to be getting soaked and bitten to often MOL
    Toodle pip and purrs

    1. Today he is grumping a bit less, and only runs away if pawppy has a bag or a big coffee mug in his hand. Or his dinner plate. Just now while petcretary snoopervised, he took three kibbles from Pawppy's palm. Tiny bits of progress...we will take them.

      Don't get petcretary started about those walnuts...there are so dang many, she thinks its a sign that we will have a furry bad winter.

  3. Very nice selfies from all of you. It sounds like Dalton needs a lot of training, he is a cutie though. Sammy and Joanie love their card. :) XO

    1. Thanks. Yes, a LOT of training, but first we need to get the trust issues resolved. He does OK with petcretary, but men are another story. He will shake a paw now...and he comes well when called...if we are outside. But too scared to come close when inside, though he does come part way. We will consider each baby step in the right direction a good indication of progress.

  4. Those are some most excellent selfies! Enjoy your week whatever you end up doing.

  5. It sounds like Dalton has some growing up to do!

  6. It are acorn season here - dey are EVERYWHERE and I hate steppin on em.

    Finley STILL can be a stinker in da rain - she was born in a drought and never got used to it as a puppy. Me and Brinley don't mind it - we wanna play in it, which can get on momma's nerves, but at least we don't act like we're being tortured.

    1. BOL @ Finley...

      At least acorns are a lot smaller than those walnuts which can be like tennis balls, though most of them are a bit smaller..

  7. Dalty gots to learn about friends and foes and that Pawppy is a friend. That had to hurt Pawppy. Maybe Pipo needs to bop Dalty on the head a few times and knock some sense into him about friendship. Or maybe have a few walnuts fall on his head said jokingly. Kindness usually wins the heart.
    Thanks for being a friend
    Sweet William The Scot

    1. Yes, pawppy has hurt feelings for sure...he walked past a grumping Dalton and said...hey dude, you *know* who pays for your food and vet bills, Yes??! BOL!
      Petcretary thinks a lot of tincture of time and patience might be the trick. So he is allowed to smell his hand if petcretary is nearby, and maybe take a treat from him also.
      Already he grumps and barks less if petcretary is around. MJF just looks at him as if to say are you crazy?? BOL!

      Walnuts on the head is no joke if the winds are up and those trees are well burdened with their bounty...OMD! Hard hats are in order fur all who dare go under them!

  8. The nerve of that walnut dancing on your nose, Mr. Jack! I hope it did not hurt your precious soft nose. Furry glad to hear Dalton the Pup is learning the ropes. Looks like you're quite the pair! Purrs, Meep

    1. Hi, Meep! That walnut was so funny when petcretary saw it after the picture was taken:) If I had tried to make that be that way it nevfur would have worked...

  9. guyz...prob a blee may bee dalton had a circumstance with a dad purrson bee for him came ta yur houz ?? any way; we hope everee thing werkz out... N in de end everee onez de best oh pals ♥♥♥

    1. We are sure that has a lot to do with it, he doens't trust him at all...but each day the barking/growling is a wee bit we are going in the right direction.

  10. We hope Dalton is going to be OK Maybe its like with cats, slow and steady wins the day.

    We send our best for good progress.
