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..."

Week 13- Transition to Demon Dog Begins!


Ears are back up - mostly. No taping required.  I think they'll stay up at a point without tape, but the left one is down some days, and up on others.

Now Sage is discovering more interesting things in the world - all of which belong in his mouth!

Thank goodness for the oodles of dog toys that it took to entertain Denali. Sage's favorite remains the tennis ball. And two is even better! sweet. Who would guess that this is the same puppy that put a hole in my pants earlier this evening by nipping at them as I attempted to walk by. After all, they were "flappy" plants. And you've just got to try to catch flappy pants!

Sigh...  He's turned the corner from little rolly polly puppy, to fanged monster!  Suddenly all textiles and paper products are "must chew" items. Oh yes, I remember this stage.

Sage seems even more handsome as his color starts to darken a little. Hard to be upset with Demon Puppy, when he's so pretty!

Digging a tennis ball out from underneath the furniture is a fascinating pursuit - this week!

He is so cute! As long as he's concentrating on his toys, he's not too menacing -- hopefully he won't graduate to furniture and rugs.

Good luck LOL!

We are waiting for our new puppy in about 8 more days.

Love those bad babies!

Hmm, my girls are still in this stage at 2 years old. I'm ready for a break. I like to say they do a lot of "reading" when they find paper or magazines within the reaches of their fangs!

Yes, I am waiting to see if Sage will be half the "gardener" that his sister Denali was, as well as Kenai before her. They both felt quite compelled to rearrange our drip watering hoses. Denali in particular liked to simply remove those she felt the plants weren't using and present them to us as gifts in other parts of the yard!

So far he seems to take greatest interest in helping with the dishes. Every time the dishwasher is open, he's trying to climb in. It's apparently fascinating!

We call that our corgi 'prewash' station when they sit next to the dishwasher and 'assist' in cleaning them.
