It is puppy mayhem here at my house. Utterly puppy craziness. If I am not at work I am spending all my time standing outside with one or two puppies waiting for them to potty or poop. It isn't just me, everyone in the family is doing the same thing. It is all about poop, potty, stop biting, get down and oh yeah, don't destroy my laundry room wall after you have been in there only 15 minutes.
They are darling and I know puppies are inquisitive. If they see a wee bit of paper coming off the wall they are going to go for it. I actually didn't even know there was a bit of paper coming off the wall. This is not exactly what I had planned. I am not in love with the paper, it came with our house so must be 22 years old, but still! I think our Hank was the instigator in this laundry room wall mess but since there were no witnesses I can't really lay the blame on him.
I think I need to rename my blog to, Mere- will never get to knit or crochet again. Or, Mere- is a complete nut job for taking on two puppies. Or how about, Mere-will never be able to read another blog in her life, or at least until her puppies stop destroying walls.
Bear got his first bath with us last night. Can I say he was not impressed? He kept picking up his paws like he was stepping in something repulsive. Now mind you he doesn't mind stepping in his water bowl, I mean like all the time. He steps in it and trails water everywhere. He is just so darling. He cries and cries for me to pet him or pick him up. He sits by me at dinner time and wants to sleep with his head on my lap in the evenings when there is a rare bit of peace because they are both so exhausted. Bear follows me around and is always under my feet. He is so precious with those deep brown eyes. Hank is more active and always wants to play. He likes to bite but then always allows Bear to be on top when they are puppy wrestling. He loves a bit of cuddling but then goes off to lay down where he has room and isn't bothered. He is doing so well with sitting and we are working on, "stay." Bear is a few weeks behind as far as training. Hank has those gorgoeus curls on his head and beautiful green eyes, he seems to be a bit more independent than Bear. It really interesting to see the differences in their personalities. Siblings are like that, aren't they?
I have been on the hunt for proper gates all week. I mean I have spent an exorbitant amount of time shopping for them or looking for them on line. I have one to block off Little Buddy's room, so he can see out but they can't see in. I have two with doors, one to block off the laundry room where their crate is and one to block off the main kitchen area from the garage door. And I am waiting for one to block off the kitchen from the rest off the house. It looks like we are in prison here. One smallish gate I had purchased to block off the garage door area was installed and Bear promptly climbed over it. I mean 10 seconds after I was done. He must be part mountain goat.
Okay, I have been on this computer long enough. The boys are getting restless even though you would think they would be exhausted after the laundry room incident. We have guests coming for the weekend, I know more fun to add to the already crazy party. See you when I can.
