'Puppy No-No' and 'No-No Puppy' are litter mates ~ about 4-1/2 months old judging by their teeth [no permanent teeth so far, but a few wiggly baby teeth]. Haven't been 'officially named' because we assume they won't be with us that long LOL.
The boy is about 16 lbs and has large bones, large feet so we think he'll be 19-20" at the shoulder, perhaps 40 lbs. The girl is 13 lbs and will be about 15-16" at the shoulder, maybe 30 lbs. They are in foster care together and quite the active/energetic pair
The girl would be a great agility and/or flyball candidate.... she's fearless, climbs/jumps over things [like the expen], flies through the 20' agility tunnel in her foster mom's home, learned stairs like in a "minute", is actually very kitten-like the way she pounces on things or launches herself from the sofa. She's VERY talkative.... chatty when you aren't doing something fast enough like getting her dinner ready or if someone we meet doesn't spend enough time ooohing & aahhhing over her
The boy isn't as manic in energy when he's separated from his sitter [wait ... that's sister... yes, she does SIT on him a lot LOL]. He doesn't bark as much or cry/whine when put in his crate for a nap. Settles down very quickly. He's also very playful, as you would expect .... but his "batteries" aren't in hyperdrive / zooming PAST the pink bunny like his sister.
JULY 25th..... 1st day home ~ playing with all the toys
snoozing .... after all that play & wrestling
Play bow ~ then the pounce !!
I love that expression on his face :)
Can you believe how CUTE they are ??
August 1, 2009
Buddy was intimidated by our energizer puppies the first few days ~ maybe due to their size? or their constant wild wrestling with each other ? plus those sharp little baby teeth ?
As soon as they were brought out to the living room for playtime, he'd "book upstairs" & watch from the landing.
Then they learned how to do the stairs [little girl 1st in new adventure, as always]
At first, they were running through the tunnel ... chasing each other or chasing Buddy. Then they used the tunnel for wrestle matches and taking things to chew on. I wasn't able to tell what they were doing, if they might be getting in trouble ~ so unfortunately, the tunnel had to be put away [Sorry, Buddy ~ I know it's your "favorite toy" & now you can't tease Sashi with your usual "hide 'n seek tag"].
So, out came the laser light ~ A WONDERFUL way to wear out puppies !!!
