Ayita will be 3 in September and had a little hip trouble recently. She had to stay inside. She loves soft white things, always has. Just when I thought it was safe  :o

Soft white things...very funny.  Is that one of your nice pillows?

IMG_5836.jpg 15 weeks today!! Zuni is a great pup but we still don't have our 3rd round of shots and really can't wait to get out in the world!! We have gone around the block a couple of times and next week we start some puppy training so maybe we'll have some good tips to share. We have tried time outs when the nipping gets a little rough (mostly at the end of day just before pass out) and I've only stuck him in the little playpen area for two or three minutes a couple of times and he seems to be getting the idea that rough play is not allowed. I so wish i had another dog for him to play with -I have taken him to doggie day care twice where he chews on other dogs for 5 hours and he is POOPed when i pick him up. I have fed him raw chicken with bones a couples of times and he always barks at it for a few minutes to make sure its dead. He's really sweet and funny. He likes the himalayan chews but just so-so and loves the flirt pole that someone recommended. Thanks for all the great tips!! 24LBs by the way--wow! IMG_5826.jpg IMG_5874.jpg IMG_5515.jpg

Time flies!  He is getting big  :)

 

I hadn't heard of a flirt pole, thanks for mentioning it!

 

The Himalayan yak treats may last a week or two.  I found them good for teething.

Now that Tayamni is older she devours it quickly so I just give her once in a while.

Yes they are.

 

My dog loves to BURY their Bully sticks to marinate for a while before eating, and I got tired of scratching bed sheets and pillow cases (when they are in the house) - so I found something I call a Yacky POP. (I think it's called a Yaky Top.  A combination of Yak treat and bully stick, looks like a popsicle!

 

Tayamni eats the Yak part first and I guess the bully stick gets chewed on during initial eating - so she's not trying to dig a hole in my bed.  I find the bully stick part in with her stuffed animals on the bed if she hasn't eaten it.

Much better than buying new bed sheets all the time or sewing up holes!

Denise, Chhaya loves to "make the bed" too! Lol...we've replaced bedspreads and sheets many a time. Oh, also the corners of pillows seem to get chewed up too  :)

Maybe time for an update on little Zuni....(no more) This has been a wild ride and while I have had many dogs he is the first male dog I have raised from a pup..wow ...mothers of all teenaged boys have my total respect ( I have 3 girls) We love him to bits he is a great dog while at the same time being a goober knucklehead! He is very alert and protective definitely a guys dog...will eat anything whether edible or not and loves just hanging out in the dirt out back. Friendly to all dogs and humans alike and relaxed in most all situations. He's a bit of a talker... almost 11 months and turns heads wherever we go altho i hear coyote on a leash a little too often.

LOL!!! I think Wyot, being my first male dog, is following in Zuni's footsteps! Oh that last picture...I just picked up all Wyot's toy stuffing not half an hour ago (almost time to sleep), it took a month (longer than most of the other toys he's had)..but it was a 94 cent toy from Walmart...he definitely talks, and if I play a child's xylophone, he howls, talks, and jumps all over the place- it's a riot!!!

Great pictures of Zuni in action on the course.  He looks as if he is happy, as I am sure you are as well.
