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..."

Sage - Day 3 at Home - Ears are Up & we have FRAP!

Day Three in his new home: Sage is clearly growing more comfortable. He is doing a bit more exploring and is gallumping about more. (Very funny when their legs aren't quite coordinated to work well together yet.)

More things are going into the mouth...yes, it's a puppy! And he's managed to convince Denali to play with him! This is huge, as she is really quite choosy regarding play partners and it usually takes her a lot more time to accept another dog well enough for play. They had a wonderful little play session this morning, and another this afternoon. We will try to get photos that aren't just blurs, and make a little video.

This little guy is very talkative. He makes all kinds of funny, squeaky sounds. Yes, he can definitely bark, but generally chooses to express himself by talking - I like it!

Ears are still up - looks good!

Sage is noticeably bigger today.  And his cream coloring is already getting darker.

He loves ALL of the toys. But when it is time to nap, he settles at our feet - sweet!  This is one happy, adorable puppy!

Cenny "talks" all the time like that. He has his own language of whines, growls, yodels, etc. It's pretty funny.

Sage was always the quiet one in the litter. I am glad he's found his voice.

After having had two Cardi females, both of whom were...ahem...quite boisterous, having one that knows how to talk in this way is very cute. Yes, he has quite a vocabulary. Now we just have to figure out what all those little squeaks and growly purrs mean. But we will!
