My sis was hosting her book club, so asked me to bring Rita over to help tire Reggie out. (Remember when I introduced Reggie
- my new nephew?)
|"I still have to grow into my ears and my paws."|
In my new novel (which is coming soon!) the main character talks about a tired puppy being a good puppy, but a comatose
puppy being the best puppy of all. Well, Rita did her best:
There was a lotta this:
And some of this...
|Reg loves his tunnels. Rita wouldn't go in for nuthin'!|
And a lotta racing around and around and around:
|Rita LOVES to be chased! Especially if the other dog can't keep up!|
|"Look, Momma, I'm flyin'! And I have bat ears!"|
|"That's enough of that! I'm taking a shortcut!"|
|"HEEHEE! That was fun! And I'm not even tired, Rita!!"|
|"Okay, maybe I'm a little tired."|
There were a lotta water breaks...
|"Hurry up. I want a turn."|
... And a treat break:
|"Did someone say treats?"|
Then there was some more of this:
|"Rita, I'm memorizing your phone # so I can call you later!"|
And in the end it seemed to work.
|Operation Tired Puppy - a success!|
But I'm guessing he'll get a second wind - just in time for the book club ladies to show up!
And Don't Forget...
It's time to check out the K9 Kamp awards. By the time you are reading this, they should be up over at Kol's Notes
and Peggy's Pet Place
. Go check 'em out. But here's a preview of an award! I nominated Taryn and her adorable corgis (I guess it's a corgi-themed blog today), Wilson & Jimmy, from A Tail of Two Cardis
for the "Low Down" award - since they gave us the low down on a great low impact exercise (swimming)... while being low to the ground. Congrats Jimmy & Wilson!
Happy (Mostly) Wordless Wednesday!
Tired dogs mean happy dogs. Congrats on your next novel. LOVE the photo "Did someone say treats?" Happy Wednesday. Lots of Golden Woof, SugarReplyDelete
oMY GOSH - HILARIOUS! woof~!ReplyDelete
I love the cardi leg bite take down of big dogs! Classic! Great shots of some very fun playing!ReplyDelete
Love this! Looks to me like this was Operation Exhaust Rita! LOLReplyDelete
Reggie is so stinkin adorable! Looks like they both had a fun time!ReplyDelete
Rita did a good job. The photos are great! Reg is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
So cute. Just love how Reggie lies on his belly. Probably feels cool on his privates.ReplyDelete
That was soooo cute! I think I would be exhausted from Operation Tired Puppy. BOLReplyDelete
Reggie you are so cute. Looks like everyone is having a ball. Have a Wonderful Wednesday!ReplyDelete
That is little puppy is sooo cute...they run around and play just like mags and gussie!! Mom likes us tired.ReplyDelete
First......Reggie....SQUEE!!! He sure is getting big! This is a great post!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the Low Down Award nomination!
Congrats on the award! Well earned!Delete
What an adorable little guy! Rita seems to get along quite nicely with him as well. I'm imagining Rita was pretty tired too. :-)ReplyDelete
OMD - you could highlight little Reggie here EVERY DAY. He is so CUUUUUTE! WANT.ReplyDelete
Rita says, "Hey now... let's not get crazy with this thing..."Delete
We don't want to infringe on Rita's blog territory. We do, however, feel strongly that Reggie could be a regular for the MONDAY MISCHIEF section.Delete
Tired puppy owner and "puppy owner's husband" (as Jon refers to himself these days)
I always need blog-fodder for Monday Mischief. Rita doesn't get into enough trouble!Delete
Operation Tired Puppy was a raging success. Thank you, Miss Rita! Reggie was a good-as-gold, gentleman pup during book club. And a huge hit with my reading friends. Yep, we are two happy households knowing our pups love each other -- reciprocal dog-sitting is assured. Yay!!ReplyDelete
Glad to hear OTP was successful! And so glad the pups love each other. PHEW!Delete
No matter how much humans play with their dogs, there is nothing quite like a little dog on dog, bitey face action to wear down even the most energetic pup.ReplyDelete
Congratulations on your novel. Keep me informed.
So true about the dog-on-dog play. At the shelter I volunteer at they started letting us do play groups with the dogs a few years back (instead of just playing with them by ourselves). It's so great and the dogs get WAY more tired.Delete
I'll definitely be blabbing about the new novel a lot as it gets closer!
Great playtime but we well remember the second wind thingy just when you thought you got the situation sussed. LOL sweet memories not. Have a wonderful Wednesday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
That puppy energy is a lotta work! By the time we got Rita she was thankfully past all that madness! (Although... it would have been nice to have her from puppyhood. Poor kid. Who knows what her puppyhood was like!)Delete
This post made me chuckle, loved the captions! :)ReplyDelete
Rita sure has a great playmate, I mean student! I love to play like that too, but unfortunately Cosmo doesn't, he's so dull!
Have fun guys,
Your pal Snoopy :)
Glad to make you chuckle, Snoop!Delete
Bummer that Cosmo won't play with you like that! You could come play with Rita some time!
What a cute post! Those two sure had fun together!ReplyDelete
looks like a good time was had by all!ReplyDelete
OBOY!!!! Little Reggie looks like fun Bunny Rita! -Your Monkey Love RocketReplyDelete
Wow he's really turning out to look like a corgi! He's a lot bigger now. Looks like they had a great time together.ReplyDelete
