A note from Winter

Winter's been here two weeks now. He's grown! (Might not be totally obvious from this pictures but he's gained five pounds since I got him...not that I know how - his diet consists of snow, weeds, sticks, my socks and blankets.)

I've grown!


He has no other dogs in the household. Rather he has these guys:

The cats


But, that's okay. He's learning lots from them.

Boo was the first to swat him. He still chases her, but appears to respect her the most. Winter did figure out that she (used) to like to sleep under the bed. Strangely enough, from Winter's point of view, she didn't want company under there. But that's okay. He'll just take his morning nap under there while he waits for me to finish waking up. (I'm the world's slowest waker-upper. The alarm clock goes off at around 4:30am. I sit up, rub my eyes and yawn for the next couple of hours. Finally around 6:15am, I actually am aware that I'm sitting in bed.)

Looking for Boo...

Hi, there...
Under the bed


Spook has had the most to do with him. And also has taught him one of his most important skills: stairs. Spook's favorite place to observe Winter was two steps down from the top. Spook got a nasty shock when Winter decided enough was enough.

Okay, I'll try these ...
First set of stairs


Wow, look how many I can do now...
Big stairs


Spook is still cautious:

Getting to know Spook


And will only play on his own terms (which don't include being chased onto a chair and being barked at...).

Trying to get Spook to play


Take that!
Spook's Response


Wizard taught him how to open cabinets. No picture, sorry! I was trying to keep Winter from eating my dishes.

He's also learned --

That PetsMart is a fun place to go. He went with me to get cat food and some socialization. He got to play with his sister, Ryan, and meet other dogs and people. He had fun and then made a bit of a mess of himself, though definitely not up to Mama Kelly's standard (he's got to get the top side dirty to get to that level).

Half dirty


That the cat bed is a wonderful place to sleep. (He'll outgrow that real soon!)

In the cat bed


That this is an interesting toy... (And has the idea that if he barks at it continuously, the ball will come out.)

Cat toy


That the cats' tuna is good enough to steal the bowl for...

Stealing the cat bowl


And that if he rings the bell, he gets to go out...

Ringing the bell


He learned this trick very quick. - he absolutely loves being outside! Now if only he'll learn that he needs to go out to do his business.

And, finally, a word of warning...should you ever meet him: Guard your shoelaces. He can unknot double knotted, tightly tied shoelaces in 1.2 seconds!

So adorable. He's got such a great energy too, I love those patient eyes.

He is so cute. I wanted a dog, but we ended up with cat #2 last week. Isn't it fun watching them teach other naughty things???
11th-Jan-2007 03:41 pm (UTC) - LOVE HIM!
I think he has already outgrown the cat bed, the sad thing you could get him a dog bed similar to the cat bed, and I am sure he would still choose the cat bed, limbs handing out and all!
Thank you for putting new pictures up, I LOVE THEM!
