The Monkey

Addie's favorite toy as of late is a stuffed monkey.

Okay, so technically it is a chimp. But we still call it a monkey.
It originally wasn't a dog toy but Addie kept stealing it and eventually we gave up and let her have it. I was concerned at first about the eyes and nose, but she's actually very gentle with it. She chews and tugs on it really hard, but he's not torn up or anything. She carries him around like a little baby.

She also likes to perch at the big window in the front room. It has a view out to the street and Addie likes to stand there and watch the world go by, maybe growling at a neighbor or something.

So I was reading in there one day, and Addie had been standing there but she had walked away. And this is what I saw.

It made me smile. : )


So busy we can't include spaces in the title.
Addie and I have had little time to do stuff, hence the lack of posts.

Training is still going well. Addie loves it.
Currently she is hiding from me because I groomed a friend's Wheaten puppy today and now she thinks she's getting groomed. She's right.

This is Bailey, the Soft coated Wheaten Terrier. Isn't she cute?

She was a very proud little girl... but she was good for her first groom at 6 months!
We've also been playing with other dogs - Clara came to visit Addie a couple weekends ago and they played non stop.
Hiding from the big scary Poodle
I had a really hard time keeping them off this chair. They'd run around like crazy, Addie would jump in and lie down, and Clara would follow. Then they'd wrestle in the chair. Goofballs.

*note a black paw above Clara's head...Gentle!*
