Play Time

Patrick & Snowy have become best friends. Snowy has now fully taken him into her heart & house, and is even sharing her favorite toys with him. It is so hard to beleive that he has only been here 2 weeks. He has grown so much & is learning so quickly. Right now he is at least halfway house broken. There are a lot of times now he will wimper & run to the back door, which leads to thier yard. We race to the door & Patrick walks down the steps & out the door to do his business. BIG accomplishment for a 9 week old ! ! no matter what breed. We are going to the Boardwalk Kennel Club Dog Show this weekend at the Wildwood Convention Center so we can talk with a local club & probably join. This way we will be able to get Patrick on the fast track with his training for his CGC & TDI, and who knows, we may just start to show him as well. I had problems with the post earlier today as the video would not load. I think I have found a solution, so here goes another try at showing our 2 little "monsters" roughhousing in our back room.

The First full week

Patrick is adjusting very well to his new home. He has become a very loving part of our family. Snowy(our 5 y/o German Sheppard) is now accepting him in her territory. They are becomming good companions & play buddies. Patrick has found himself a place that he likes to think of as his, our loveseat.




Home is where I can get Comfy!








This past Tuesday night we all had to go out for a few hours. We set up a room as a puppy pen, complete with an escape proof gate( yes we found one that he can't climb ). We placed a couple of freshly washed flannel sheets in there for him to lay on. Snowy, at this point, was still not too sure of him, but we expected her to at least check on him thru the gate. What we found when we got home was great. Snowy met us at the door as usual, but Patrick was very quiet, calm, and only a little excited. We wondered why he was behaving so well. We found out rather quickly when we picked up the sheets. There was a large area that had been matted down, a little to big for it to have been made by Patrick. As we looked closer, there was the tell tale long white hair from Snowy on the sheets. Patrick must have carried on and Snowy didn't like it. She had jumped the gate & went in with Patrick to comfort him. That is when she really warmed up to him, so we are kind of glad that we left them alone for a couple of hours.



This morning Dana caught us having some "guy time" in my recliner. When she took this picture, Patrick winked as if to say, Yup, I OWN him.

Big Sister



Patrick and Snowy are now good friends .You really didn't want to sit here did you ?
