Edible bones...




We gave Tandy and edible nylabone last night, once he started sucking on it he took it and ran away to a nice hiding spot, everytime i went near him to watch him he jumped with it, afraid i was going to take it away from him! Ha! I love the picture of him with it and his eye looking up, like "can you get out of my face please".

Puppy dayz!


Things are calming down around here lately with a puppy. Tandy will be 5months old this month and has begun to loose teeth! We have found two so far, or pieces of some anyway. He has about four gaps in his mouth! He is getting bigger everyday almost as tall as my youngest child! We still continue to go to puppy class every week, and in a few weeks we will continue to go every other week, that will be nice as i am getting tired of the drive and he seems to need it less and less as he learns so quickly and is competent at most things. During the days at home he is so good and content, he knows what toys are his and finds them everywhere, he has free roam of the house and treats it with respect. Its amazing what he has figured out in three months here with us. He never chews on anything that is not his toy, but he does however eat things laying around if we are unaware, like paper and pens and things! Haha!! But overall he can be trusted to be alone downstairs (mainfloor) while we do things up or down in the home. He loves his walks and with this awesome spring weather we have been going out a lot, on the path and to the park and library. Its handy to be able to incorporate him into our daily routines, like going to the library and such, we just walk there now to make him tired and to enjoy the fresh air, then when we get to the library he is very well behaved and ready to nap! I think we will take him on a trip soon to the cottage in Tobermory, see if he likes the water, maybe he will swim!! Last week he even went to a movie with us!

Song for Tandy...! (by barry manalow)



I remember all my life
Rainin' down as cold as ice
Shadows of a man
A face through a window
Cryin' in the night
The night goes into

Mornin', just another day
Happy people pass my way
Lookin' in their eyes
I see a memory
I never realized
How happy you made me, oh Tandy

Well, you came and you gave without takin'
But I sent you away, oh Tandy
well, you kissed me and stopped me from shakin'
and I need you today. Oh, Tandy!

I'm standing on the edge of time
I've walked away when love was mine
Caught up in a world of uphill climbin'
The tears are in my mind
And nothin' is rhyming, oh Tandy

Well, you came and you gave without takin'
But I sent you away, oh Tandy
well, you kissed me and stopped me from shakin'
And I need you today, oh Tandy

Yesterday's a dream
I face the mornin'
Cryin' on a breeze
The pain is callin', oh Tandy

Well, you came and you gave without takin'
But I sent you away, oh Tandy
Well, you kissed me and stopped me from shakin'
And I need you today, oh Tandy

You came and you gave without takin'
But I sent you away, oh Tandy
You kissed me and stopped me from shakin'
And I need you!

I know i am nerd, but this will make me cry when he is gone! :(

Fisherman!


Tandy has grown and is now at the height of the fish tank when sitting! He's been cute trying to eat the fish and chasing them across the tank!

SIBLING PLAY DATE!










Tandy and Tawny had a play date today, 2 hours of puppy wrestling and fighting! I learned a lot about dog behavior by observing and taking photos! Wow! Tandy will probably sleep for a week now! Confused as to who is who? Tandy has a brown collar and Tawny has orange!

Out and about with Tandy!



Today was an awesome sunny day with a hint of spring in the air! So nice and exciting, one of those days you want to go outside and kick your heels up! I have been noticing lately Tandy sitting by the back door watching the birds in the sunshine! So today we leashed him up and strolled our way uptown to the library, stopping at a fancy pet store, cutting through the mall, going to a children's clothing store and a gourmet food store! Great walk indeed. At our last puppy class we got a pack leader leash for Tandy that goes on his face so that he does not want to pull, he had been pulling a bit too much for my arms and hands when we go to public places, so today we tried this and he did great, shows him who's boss that is for sure! Ha! I have to keep him focused though, otherwise he tries to rub it off! In an hour i will go pick up his sister and they will have a puppy play date, i will blog about that later!
(i had wanted a picture of him at the library but totally forgot, between two kids asking for help finding books and a ton of toddler running yelling "doggie", i had my hands full!)
