We've never had a tiny dog before... so Scott says we can look at it as an experiment. Can a small dog, raised like he's a big dog, be a good dog? Do all ankle biters need to bark incessently? These and many other mysteries will be solved in the years to come.
People say, "Isn't he just about snack size for a St Bernard? Well, I guess since he fits so perfectly into there dishes, I suppose he could be! Luckily, everyone here is adjusting to the little imp, mostly taking it in stide and is good natured about it. Let's face it, a new family member coming home around here is hardly a new concept.
As much as I was not really "down" with gettting a third dog right now... he is pretty darn cute.
It's fun to watch the little wheels turning in his tiny head as he slowly learns about us, and what we do. He's been walking like a trooper.... running on those tiny legs; until you add a leash. The brakes go on immediately, puppies resent leashes... and collars. They seem to find them very distasteful.
That funny husband of mine had me laughing again last night.
He said, "make sure you hold the leash out to the side between your finger and thumb; and you hold it like you are holding a butterfly by the scruff of its neck"... I"m still chuckling. Can you just see me now?
Oh good grief.
I have to get dinner.... i'm sure you can smell if burning around the world...
p.s. ~ the little ball of fluff is sleep under my feet as i type..... can i get an Awwwwwwwww?
