I have thought about you so much and have told myself I needed to tell you about the two most wonderful puppies in the world!!!
I have had dogs and cats before and they were loving, somewhat playful however no one has compared to Katie & Charlie. They play with toys and each other, a lot of time Charlie will not come downstairs in the morning without a toy. He is a character, when he knows we are going for a walk, he grabs a toy,
runs around a round table several times before he runs in the utility room to get his harness and leash.
Of course, it is a game, me chasing him around a round table. He usually wins. Katie has now started helping me get him, she even catches his ear and most of the time he will follow her.
I believe she thinks she is his mother. We have two round brown beds in the family room. Katie will go under one and play turtle, moving the bed with her.
They love everyone they meet. One of our neighbors who they love (she feeds them treats) calls
Them the neighborhood ambassadors. Many of our neighbors walk in the morning and evening so the pups get to see them and give them love. Both dogs can stand on two feet while moving their
Hands in excitement. Yesterday they both wrapped their hands around Clarice’s hands like they were holding on. Today they did not do it and she was disappointed. They play together all the time, making lots of noisy sounds. Charlie likes to sleep on top of the crate in their room, or in a chair or in the tiny little bed they had as babies. They are beautiful and fun. Sonny and I laugh & smile all the time. They have time clocks as they know the routine well. Today Sonny went out the utility room (which is the way we take them out to walk or go to their play yard) Katie cried and looked for him, when he came in the garage door she was so happy that she jumped into his lap and gave him wonderful love. Charlie joined her to stand and give Sonny kisses on his forehead. He loves to jump on the sofa, kiss Sonny then get down.
I could go on and on, they are wonderful, cute and beautiful. Loving and comical. I wish you could see the two legged stance they both take to greet someone. When they are on the leash and stand two legged, we relax the leash and they move around on two legs. People are amazed.
I guess you know we love them so very much!
They were groomed yesterday and I plan to take pictures. I will send you some.
I hope your sister is ok, those fires are horrible. Stay cool, this weather is very dangerous. We don’t walk the pups on the roads are driveways while the sun is out, don’t want to burn their feet.
Yes, we are very protective parents.
I know you miss her, but she is such a blessing at our house! Moolah is just amazing, all thanks to you.
She is now going into her crate at night without crying. She ALWAYS looks forward to food and she is super sweet.
We just adore her. Thank you thank you thank you!!!
Hi Dianne, 8-10
He looks so adorable in his pictures! I got so excited when I saw his
picture with my name under it on the website! Thank you so much for
allowing my friend Kate and I to come into your home and meet all your
beautiful dogs and puppies. I could see how much you love them and how
well they are taken care of. I'm so relieved to know my puppy will be
spoiled and well cared for until he's ready to come home. Thank you
for easing my mind and making it possible for my family and I to bring
another puppy home. I can't wait to see him again! We're already
working on some names for him. Feel free to send me updates!
Charlie is so fuzzy, he reminds me of your Lucy. It is hard to find his skin. Katie is getting a layer of what I call, fringe. It is black and highlights
the red of her base coat. She is very smart. Charlie does what Charlie wants to do. They now go up and down the stairs and love to race thru the
family room into the hall and kitchen. We have doors that can block off the living room and dining room. If we forget and leave them open,
the puppies love to run and Katie loves to go under the sofa.The benefit of having two puppies is that I have lost weight. I tell people that they don't need weight watchers, just get two puppies. I lift weights, name Katie and Charlie. Katie is still heavier than Charlie. He has caught up in length and height.We love them dearly. They are so spoiled I wish you could see them using their chairs.They run and jump into their chairs and ours. Sonny lines up the hairs in a row, two puppy chairs and two people chairs. They start at the puppy chairs and Quickly move to our chairs. They love our neighbors, Debbie & Joe. Whey they hear Debbie's voice they go crazy wiggling and jumping. Charlie wiggles so much Debbie is concerne she may drop him. I wonder if they remember her visiting them at your home.
Well, need to get busy and take the pups out to play.
