I’ve been doing a lot of work around our first home the last few years; it’s nice that the gardens are finally coming together. This year in particular, I finally got to plant some sunflowers.. a little later in the season, but non the less super big stocks shot out of the ground! I can’t believe how tall they’ve gotten; they have to be over 10 feet tall now, not in bloom yet but a couple of them are really close to blooming.
I really wasn’t sure if the seeds would even have enough time to germinate and take because of the timing that I planted them, I’m definitely pleasantly surprised at the out come.
Clearly from the image above, Soph was left unattended while I had a shower.. again clearly I was not watching her, my own fault. Luckily the paint is non toxic, but still.
We’re really at a trial and error point with Soph and her toys, we’ve come to the conclusion that she enjoys fabric toys and not so much hard toys as you can see from some of her selection below.
Fabric toys tend to last her all of 5 minutes before she has a hole right through it, but man does she love them. Rope Bones are her next favourite, they last longer than fabric toys of course so we’ll probably stick closer to them.
Kong I find was a great solution until she figured out that to get the treat out she just has to slam it on the floor a few time .. lol.
Natural Chews work great as well to keep her interested, I don’t have any current images though as she tends to get through them pretty quick. I definitely want to try antlers for her once shes a little older, they’re just too hard for her little teeth at this point.
Once she starts getting pieces of anything off I remove the toy or chew (unless edible) from her reach. We always recommend that any new toy be supervised with puppies.
Do any of your dogs have a favourite style of toy? What was the best when they were a puppy? What was the worse thing they chewed on you?
We would love to hear some of your funny stories, leave a comment below!
So me being little and fluffy I have a hard time in the snow, and well I just plan dislike going outside; especially when the snow is almost as deep as my mum is tall! So I tend to try and hide away when mum or dad calls me to go out for a pee; they always seem to find me though, I just don’t get it! I thought I was the best hider in the house, they just seem to be too clever!
Maybe if I don’t look at them; if I can’t see them, they can’t see me, right?
Nope, they definitely can’t see me at all this time, not a chance! Or so I thought, soon mum was laughing and dad came around the corner and laughed too.
Dang, I really thought I had them this time.. well I guess outside I go.
So some days I find it hilarious to make these silly faces at mum, I really enjoy doing it when its too cold outside to do much other than run out and do my business then run back in as quickly as possible- and we’ve had a few of them lately.
The snow has also gotten so deep here it’s OVER my head in some spots. When it isn’t too cold out I like to run- or hop as fast as possible through it all, the parents think it’s hilarious when all of a sudden POOF I disappear.. under the snow.
Mum wants to try and get some good shots of my brother and I hopping through the snow, hopefully it isn’t too chilly this weekend and maybe we can share some with you soon!
Hi fur family, it’s been awhile! Sorry we’ve been away, mums been terribly unwell the last few days. “That time of year” she says; but she’s all better now, we really need her to work the computer for us.. we just can’t figure it out.
Anyways Great seeing you guys can’t wait to see you all again soon!
