When You Just Run Out Of Gas


Bixby and Scout: Getting Settled

Scout is growing and growing. Don’t take my word for it, check out our first Bear photo shoot here.

She continues to be adorable. Bixby has been so patient with her. No matter how much she climbs, bites and antagonizes him, he gently corrects or redirects her.

Having him around has made things so much easier. He will distract her when she is bothering the cats, entertains her when I’m trying to get things done. And she follows him around and clearly idolizes him. It all works for me.

Had a fun photo shoot today…

This Guy

Makes me laugh every day. I told him when he was a puppy he had two jobs: make me laugh and protect me. He does both with the same enthusiasm. Although his protection is subtle – he backs up, sits on my feet, which brings him up to my chest, and dares anyone to step closer without saying a word. We were laughing the other night and saying if he were a person, he’d be Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Love that pup.

Thank Puppy It’s Friday

Bixby and His Bunny 4 1 16

This pretty much sums up how I’m feeling, too. Yes, that bunny is about as big as Bixby. It was his after-Easter-sale present. And yes, it is missing its bunny tail, one ear and both eyes. But that’s how he likes his stuffies. Have a great weekend. Hoping to get back to regular-ish blogging next week. – TaMara

Bixby Update: Bixby’s Crew

We spent last weekend with the family. Here is Bixby’s crew:

Bixby's crew2

Little Gracie – the furry one in my niece’s arms, is 5 months old and ruled that big beast. She’d playfully chase him all around the house before running back to her safe spot and starting all over again. He was clearly smitten as was she.

He was exhausted when we got home. He crawled into his crate and slept until I dragged him to bed. The next day he was reluctant to play tug or go for his walk. He seemed glad when I went to see my clients and left him snoozing on the couch.

He has since recovered and is his lively self again.

BTW – 39 photos to get that one. Trying to get a 9 yr old and two puppies to hold still – well, thank goodness for the burst feature on my camera.
