More Puppies

Don't worry. We did not get another puppy! One Ambrose is quite enough for me.

My Drill Team friend, Royal, got an new puppy sister a couple of weeks ago. He seems to like her a lot (how strange?) and lets her nibble on him all the time. She is pretty cute though.

Royal's person, Jenn, thought that little Jet needed to meet a dog that would not be so besotted with her and teach her to respond to cut off signals. So Barbara brought me over to meet her. I was more interested in running around Royal's yard than playing with a silly puppy. Of course Jet was fascinated with me (who wouldn't be?) and followed me everywhere on her little puppy legs. I pretended she wasn't there. When she came too close, I glared at her or gave her a little growl. She was very respectful and backed off immediately.

I think she is a smart little thing and will turn out well. If you want to see more pictures of Jet's training you can check out Royal's blog.

Then I found out that Penny, my Airedale Terrier friend who is also in our Drill Team, has a new brother. His name is Joey. He looks like he is going to be a wild boy like Ambrose.

Since it was a beautiful day, we got some dog park time. I love the fresh, new grass. I couldn't resist doing a bit of roaching.

Here is a little video of me enjoying myself.

Look at all the foliage that I managed to get in my fur! I even had pine straw hanging from my feathers.

Ambrose had a big time running through the park. He stole another dog's squeaky toy and raced around showing it off.

Finally he wore himself out and it was time to go.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all! Hope you got some corned beef or some soda bread.

What is up with all these puppies and their cuteness? Gah! I mean, I have to deal with puppy cuteness 24/7 and ARRRRGH!!! Playing in the grass sure looked like fun, though!

Happy holiday to you as well! Now I have a solid case of puppy fever. :)

You look great with your foliage decorations, Niamh!

From what you write, it sounds like girl puppies ay be a little more "together" than little boys? Jet does look cute.

You are such a good helper with those puppies! I asked for soda bread, but Mr. Jason said, "no."

Mom totally wants to get us a sister, but that's not going to happen until I get my manners a little more under control and we no longer rent apartments. Poo! I want a little sister to wrastle with! And Big Pupi LOOOVES the ladies. You're lucky you get to borrow a wriggly puppy girl to play with! (or growl at..) I'm soooo jealous!

Oh roaching in the grass is so much fun...

Hi Niamh,

I love a good roll too! And I had to laugh at that picture of you covered in twigs and leaves and stuff!! I can't believe it - it's such a far cry from your usual salon-gorgeous self!! :-)

Hey - I have a question to ask you (or your Barbara, rather): when I meet puppies, I also often do what you did with Jet - I just give a very soft little growl under my breath, although I'm very good with them...but Hsin-Yi gets upset when she hears me growling. She always wonders whether she should tell me off for doing that? Of course, she understand that I need to teach puppies manners but she always thought that if I'm growling, that is sort of "aggressive" behaviour and so shouldn't she be letting me know that it is unacceptable to behave like that? Usually, she say "Honey, NO" - and then I stop growling - and then she praises me a lot & sometimes treats me if I just tolerate the puppy and sniff it or just ignore it but don't that the right thing to do? If Barbara has the time to let us know, we'd really appreciate it!

Ahhhh - rolling in piney detritus is soooo good! Love the movie! I'll bet you're glad that puppy understands doggie speak! Happy belated St. Paddy's Day - I hope you have a great weekend!
Hugs xo

They are both adorable puppies.

We loved watching you roll around like that, and the photo after! hehe

Looks like you and Ambrose had a lot of fun at the park.

Have a great weekend. :)

What is this world coming to? Puppies everywhere! Think they might be planning a coux?? Don't look now, but I'm hearing rumors that one might be invading my house before too long! Looove your attempt at camouflage BTW!!

You look very cool with all those shmootzies hanging off your feathers, Niamh. Not used to seeing you like that! I wish I had feathers so leaves and stuff could hang from them but then when I think of all the brushing and fussing that you must endure after, I'm kinda glad I'm bald! Just love all those cute little puppyfaces too.
