Everyone had a busy day playing and a friend brought them tasty bones to gnaw on and now they are all just tuckered out...

And Then Came Spencer...

Spencer arrived today with the help of NR volunteer Alex and his NR alum Corwin!  While a little nervous at all the newness, he found a buddy in Stu to sniff, pee and play with... What more could a boy want?

A walk in Cle Elum shows he's new to the leash with his crazy hop spins and then bite the leash antics and also occasionally trying to roll the leash off.  Then Stu found himself some horse poop to roll in and even grabbed a tasty snack of it before being pulled away from all that goodness... So both boys got a bath when we got home...
 New experience for my dad walking Stu who was trying to convince him that he just HAD to pee on everything if not once, then twice.. :)
 While both boys did great getting their bath (Stu seems to be getting the hang of "bath time") - what they loved was promptly finding some good stuff in the backyard to roll in (sigh)

Cassie's happy... two dogs she can hold together!

No more Plastic Cone!

He's really a handsome pup!  and I love the little diamondish thing on his nose.. it's very kissable!  You can tell he's feeling better these days - he's a little more active and likes to play more.  He's not crazy over active, but he's got some energy to him that he can run out. 

Stu has come out of his cone and is onto a procollar - he's getting lots of breaks from it but at night it goes on just to make sure he finishes up healing.  I'm not sure he's impressed with it, but it's gotta feel better than the cone! He should get this off in just a few more days.

New Pals!

Stu got a break from the cone and we went over to my friends yard to hang out and let the dogs and the kids play on just a nice summer evening... Stu had so much fun he didn't what or who to play with... Two little boys to chase and throw balls for him... Roxie a little white scruffy terrier to chase and try to get the ball from - or Howie, the italian greyhound who he just really seemed to dig. :)

We had Stu on a long line so he could play and get his run on (and he did) and Stu came home a tired but happy pup.  We look forward to more fun times with these guys! :)

 Stu hanging out with Sean and George - resting up before the next game of chase!

sometimes running by yourself is fun too!
don't mind me!

hey!  she's touching me!
my favorite picture - can his mouth get any bigger?  he's getting ready to take that ball!
a little dance at sunset!

nothing like a new friend to help you watch the going ons in the neighborhood

Stu's Walkabout...

We were up in Cle Elum yesterday and took Stu for a little walk...He was in heaven... so many things to see and smell!  He did pretty super on the leash and while we didn't see anyone else walking; on the way back Stu managed to see a mole/prarie dog and then he was a mole watch the whole way back!  (no more spotted though)

We were walking on an old railroad....
Stu says, only 2087 miles to Chicago - let's go!

So tired, he fell asleep with his head in the car trash can - one tired pup!

The Dreaded Cone

So Stu had a rough day so I gave him a little reward via yogurt... He enjoyed it very much as you can tell by the video!!!

But then it was back into the dreaded CONE... he's not healing as well as he should from his neuter so he had to go to the vet; antibiotics and the cone so he get onto healing!

He was sad about the cone this weekend and also kind of butt head just ramming into you, the wall, that whatever... He can come inside via the doggie door, but can't seem to go outside with it, but he comes and let's you know, so that's nice... And he gets a doorman...who wouldn't like that?  He's coming around though and thinks neck scratches are the best and is giving kisses once again.. He just needed to pout about it for a day or two.
