For Wordless Wednesday I thought I would post this picture of Sierra in the chair. She likes to sometimes sit in this comfy chair like this with her front leg over the armrest. We all think it is pretty funny since she looks like a person in my opinion. Her face is pretty cute too. What do you think?
Yesterday I posted a fun picture of Cody and Sierra when Sierra was a puppy. The picture showed just how hard it is for older dogs when adding a puppy to the family.
Since that picture was bit high energy I thought I’d share this calm picture.
Sierra took cues from Cody and wanted to be with him when he was keeping a “lookout” over the yard and house. I like how in the picture she is next time him and looking the other way. She also liked to cuddle with Cody when he was napping outside. Unsure if he was happy about that. Of course we thought it was cute and funny that she was following around her big brother just like a little sister would.
Having a puppy is fun, but it’s nice when a dog grows up and there are no more “messes” in the house. Do you think everyone loves puppies?
Since I haven’t posted in while I thought I would share this picture we found recently while trying to organize some files. (Not real files but computer files.) This was a funny picture of Cody and Sierra back when Sierra was just a little fluff ball, also known as a puppy. Check it out, we think it’s kind of cute.
Cody wasn’t too happy with Sierra since she changed everything and was getting a lot more attention than he thought she should. He’s just trying to defend his “turf” and his attention time from the family.
We noticed that Cody’s personality changed a lot from a spoiled only dog too a being a “grown-up” dog when Sierra came into the mix. He was pretty hard on her, still is mostly, but things have changed. Cody plays with Sierra and tolerates her being around… but probably wouldn’t mind if she left and things got back-to-normal in his mind.
Have you ever introduced a puppy into your family when you already had a dog? Had did the dog react to a puppy? Was it good or bad?
We will try to find fun pictures of the Singing Dogs and do short and quick posts. What do you think Cody is saying here? We’d love to hear opinions and comments.
Cody and Sierra, the Singing Dogs, just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Halloween. Instead of us spending money on dog costumes, which we know the dogs would not like, we got out the outfits Anderson Cooper gave us when we were on his show. The dogs seemed lukewarm about putting them on.
Actually Sierra hide under the table and wouldn’t come when we got Cody’s nice tuxedo on. He wasn’t about it either and looked at us like, “Are you serious?” What Cody doesn’t know is that the outfit was custom made for him and he should be happy.
Ironically even though Sierra didn’t want to put on the dog outfit it seems like she likes getting her picture take. Sometime she even poses for the camera. Kind of funny because when she was a puppy she didn’t like getting her picture taken.
Anyway, I hope everyone has a Happy Halloween? Planning on doing anything spooky or scary? Let us know below.
Fairly recently we took Cody and Sierra to the Veterinarian to get a checkup, some shots, and they each got their nails clipped. (Sierra wasn’t happy about that!)
As most people know everytime you go to the Vet they weigh your dog. Well to our surprise each of our Singing Dogs has gained roughly 2 pounds since the last Vet visit. While this doesn’t sound like a lot for humans, for medium sized dogs this is a fairly large weight gain. While I mulled over their weight gain I thought, “If they’ve gained weight, does that mean I’ve gained weight?”
Since hearing your dog’s gained weight is almost an insult that you’ve gained weight, I started questioning the scale at the Vet. Could it be they don’t calibrate it or it has not been calibrated properly? Maybe it’s just old? What if it wasn’t zeroed? The scale must be broken!
While I think it’s the weight scale and not all those extra treats we give the dogs, the reality started to set in a little bit. Honestly we probably don’t spend enough time playing and exercising with our dogs. The food we buy is generally healthy but we could be doing a better job for the dogs and ourselves.
So if your dog’s gained weight, does that make you feel like you’ve gained weight? What are going to do to change it?
Thought I would let everyone know that we just finished reading Sugar’s Furry Friend by Maria Rosalyn Acero. It chronicles Sugar, the golden retriever, fun adventures with a chipmunk in her backyard. Like most dogs Sugar loves chasing small rodents, but especially this particular chipmunk.
We think “Sugar’s Funny Friend” a great children’s book since it has nicely drawn pictures and fun story, but there is also an educational component too. At the end of the book there is an explanation of terms for everything that was mentioned in the book that a small child might not know yet or completely understand. We think it would make a great gift for the upcoming Holidays.
The children’s book is currently only available on Kindle, but it shouldn’t matter if you don’t have one. Amazon makes Kindle app available on many different platforms.
We actually got to meet Sugar and Rosalyn at BarkWorld recently. (Not sure if that makes us biased.) Even though Sugar is a senior dog she was still on the lookout for treats as you can tell from the picture below!
Wish I had a better picture of Sugar, but is what I have!
