It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

14 Weeks - A Busy Boy!

So many little time. One of the Sage's favorite toys continues to be the tennis ball. We got cool orange ones at the Golden Gate Kennel Club Dog show last weekend - freebies!  
They're most interesting when wedged into hard-to-reach places!

And then, there is the family history becoming readily apparent. Sage has a real penchant for zippers. Luckily, all of the zippers on our dog beds are already broken, thanks to Denali's puppyhood antics. No one can destroy a zipper faster than Denali. I am sure she has the Guiness Book record. But now that they no longer work, each individual tooth can be removed in mere seconds by Sage, The Zipper Ripper!

Yep, he's getting bigger, though he is most likely still the smallest male in the litter. Currently he's about 13.8 pounds. Gaining a pound/week, just like everyone else, but he started out smaller. His cream color is definitely darkening and he's becoming more handsome all the time!

As promised, Sage is definitely a lap puppy. He loves to be held, and likes to "hug." These photos were taken by my left hand, while the right one held a puppy in my lap.

Today some friends came to visit - we like friends! They make funny noises, and play the walking hand game with us!

He is getting prettier and prettier. I used to call Skye "too pretty to be a boy!" Sage is another one.

And he is going to have great ears. They are nice and big and round.

Yes, Moe kept calling him "she," at first because he really is very pretty!

I think he's going to be really striking as an adult! And with his incredibly, happy, sweet temperament he's a real winner...even if he's not a Show Puppy!

Yes, great ears, no need for additional taping after what you did when he came home.

Sage is looking great. Captain is doing well still taping but slow and sure he will be there.
