Gone to the Dogs

Warning: this post is a little pooch heavy and Bugga light. More on Bug later though. ;) Of course.

Speaking of the Bug, Pumba is GREAT with him. Nothing much that Bug does seems to phase this guy. Throwing toys, being hit, tantrums, running, throwing toys and running at the same time...Pumba seems pretty cool with it all. =)

Isn't he handsome?!

And don't forget cute! =)

Can't you just tell by Paisley's face here that she was beyond thrilled to have a new playmate? We were planning on taking it super slow, but these two had such positive body language that we gave it a go and they had an awesome 15 minute wrestle-mania before happily settling down to nap. This was Saturday; the wrestle-mania has been a daily (usually multiple times daily) event since then.

And yes, our resident girl lets Pumba lay with her and even chooses to lay near him if he lays down first. Well, sometimes. Other times, a girl just needs her space, you know?! We feel you Pai! =) Our little lady is shaping up to be an awesome foster sis and we couldn't be more proud of her!

I just did a training session, first with Pumba, then with Paisley. WOW, Paisley feels like a well-oiled machine compared to my little Pumba Loompa. ;) It's definitely back to basics with Pumba! It's good though for J and I to go back and consider training from those first steps again. Like the basics of leadership, and putting myself in the frame of mind of a pup who just spent 2 months in a kennel. It's frustrating and fun at the same time, that's for sure. Each little bit of progress is so exhilerating though, so it's all worth it. =)

And hopefully, these little steps will eventually add up to a big time progression: his forever home. Wish Pumba luck and keep checking in for updates on our new little snuggle-muffin.
