Been quiet on ERV lately, cause Ive been puppah sitting again.

This time, its a ~1 year old mutt (German Shepherd, Rottie, Boxer… ??). One week of this:

Approximately 20 hours a day.


These two have been having so much fun, Weenie Dog From Hell even decided to give this ‘play’ thing a try:

    The Wiener was pretty cute, actually.

    But thank you for reminding me of how much work dogs are. ‘d drive me nuts. It’s more than enough when the cats take have fit from time to time.

    I have a brindle pit/boxer mix that looks something like that pup. His best friend is a Weiner.

    It reminds me of when we first got our most recent dog, back in March. For about three weeks, the guy was almost impossible to deal with, completely hyper, and definitely with a bad attitude. However, with patience and a lot of work, he’s turned into a fantastic dog. He still has his little spaz-outs (he’s still less than a year old), but by and large he’s one of the best-behaved dogs we’ve had.

    Your dog is so precious! Makes me miss my black lab/rottie mix back home.

    They arent spazzin! Theyre playing! I was hoping theyd love each other, so I tactfully arranged the front room so they could do this without breaking my computer/TV/Wii 🙂

    Whats funny is the puppy is a complete gentleman. Very well mannered, quiet as a mouse– very demure. Its me and Arnie that are ‘AHHHH PLAY TIIIME PUPPAH PUPPAH PUPPAH!’

    Puppy hid from me for about an hour after we initially met… LOL!

    Savage beasts! Surely you realize they’re merely practicing and plotting to eat you in your sleep!


    How freakin’ adorable is that? Seriously. Arnie’s face needs my smooches.

    The brindle looks a bit confused about how to deal with the weenie dog from hell.

    That scene looks like much of the time around here. The new pup (adopted about the same time as Orac’s, and very similar looking) and the new-to-us 8 year old obese lab do that kind of thing as soon as I show evidence of wakefulness.

    We say the lab is on the Ella exercise plan. She’s like Richard Simmons, but even more annoying. Seems to be working, though.

    Wow, your pitbull is very kind. he completly pwned the big pub, maybe because of more experience, lol. And he looks so happy about the dachshund pub.

    How cute.

    I did catsitting for two cats for some friends years ago. I was renting a house at the time where you could make a complete circle walking through the living room, the dining room the kitchen and back to the living room through a different doorway. I was watching TV after work, and they started chasing around the circle. After the 12th circuit I began to wonder if I could sell tickets and open up wagering. 😉 Come see the cat races! I actually wondered if I could attach little chariots to them. I think they complete almost 15 loops before tiring out. Did that every evening for a week.

    Ah. Good. Someone else I can con…er…ask to dog sit if Missy Dog needs a temporary home.

    Missy is 1/2 Great Pyrenees, seriously tall and fast. There used to be a miniature dachshund (sounds redundant) living behind me. It was hilarious to watch the little dog’s legs go flying as he tried to keep up with Missy. If he stood on his hind legs and stretched, he could just touch Missy’s nose with his.

    You have such an adorable puppah. Although I haven’t had a pet for many years, I will finally be in a position to have a pet in April of next year. So until then, I’ll just have to settle for looking at cute puppahs on the internets.

    You better watch out. I know from experience that you don’t want to bring down weenie dog wrath…

    Tales of the Messy Missy Dog…

    Well, Missy got past me through the front door just a little while ago. She usually hates the rain, hates being wet. So what does she do? Runs off into the rain, of course. Ran after her, and she thinks being chased is a good game. Went back and got the car. Couldn’t find her. Came back, and there she was, except covered in some greenish-yellow stinky goo. Maybe fresh cow poo.

    Now she is in the garage, drying out after a thorough bath (given while I’m standing in the rain).

    Grich grich grich…

    But we love ’em.

    You have them mistaken for the cats.

    Nice to see that Sherlock and Watson aren’t the only big black dogs who rassle. 🙂

    Nothing and I mean nothing quite like some full tilt doggy grab-assing to put a smirk on my pre-coffee countenance.

    Much obliged.

    My lab comes in from time to time wearing feces of unknown provenance, someone should write a field guide with photos.
