Today three of mom's cousins came over to stay for about three days. Which doesn't bother me, I love Lucas, Parker & Emma. I greeted them all with happy wags and loving kisses but then he walked through the door.....
That goofy smile on his face, his long clumsy & wigginling body and that annoying long tail smacking me in the face every five seconds. Baxter. He gets to stay with us for the weekend also, yeah. Not. I am not nor will I ever be a fan of that 1 year old nuisance. I have known him since his parents & human siblings got him almost a year ago when he was I think a month old and mom always thought he would grow on me. Hah! She should have known, I am her "grumpy old man" after all. Even though she has tried so very hard to socialize me I still don't like a lot of other dogs. Though I have gotten better with adults but still loath puppies (which is odd because I was a father of two when I came to the shelter!).
Anywho I wasn't very happy with mom because it has just been a few days since Lacey (aka "the pug") went home after spending last weekend with us when her fam. went out of town. She is of course a puppy also. I have been really good about putting up with the "babies" but they have been pushing it majorly. Both Baxter & Lacey have taken a liking to my chew bones. MY beloved chews! MINE! And mom tried to give Baxter his own chew but no he wanted my favorite one (at the moment). Of course, that little booger.
And today our neighbor & good friend Marylynn came over, but with a suprise. A little 12week old fluff-ball of a puppy named Henry. Mom ran & greeted Mary and scooped up the red and white lasha-poo who licked her nose with a thousand puppy breathe kisses. Mom knew that the puppy was Mary's "grandpuppy" (her son Jared & new daughter in law's pup) because they had gone into the shelter mom volunteers at looking for a baby a few times. They ended up getting him from a petstore (which mom wasn't very happy with, but didn't say anything) 2 weeks ago. Mom & the Lori said that is probably what I looked like as a puppy (though since I am part basset I was probably longer and had a bigger head and feet). Mary & thelori talked for a bit while mum showed Henry to us pups I could care less of the little thing, Josh kept trying to be all "I am the alpha bow down to me" and Baxter was kinda scared of the moving squeaky toy that kept trying to play with him. She then showed Henry to the human boys, and after that brought him up the another one of our neighbors (owners of Lacey) to show the human girls & see what the pug would think. Of course the two pup fell in love and played like crazy. Then mom brought Henry back down and he actually tried to play with moi! Crazy wipper snapper.
Well I have to go, it has been a long day of putting up with puppies.
