Kongo Kongo

Maeve is figuring out the Kong. The greatest dog toy ever. She loves peanut butter and jumps around like a maniac when you go to the stove where the peanut butter is. She's even beginning to throw it to get the treats out.
There are three different Kong sizes. The smallest is the puppy kong, which is good for teething and we chose a pink one. The next is the "big dog" size, when she's a little bigger. The football is cool, and a little trickier and we are trying to introduce it to her so that she can be successful. It's fun to watch her succeed. :)

Ohhh Brother!!

Today, Maeve's brother Reggie came for a playdate. They are pretty neck and neck in weight, both at 19 and 1/2 pounds!! They are pretty big in comparison to their litter when we asked others last night. I must say [even though it's a little off topic] that Beckham has some amazing attention, and it's so sweet. They played for about an hour and 45 minutes. It was some intense playing :) They enjoyed playing in the water dish and digging, or both shoving their darling faces into the dish together. Playing included a lot of wrassling. They enjoyed a couple quick rounds of tug-of-war, which is the green rope in the picture. Here are some wild action photos. They just had to roll in the small patch of dirt. That concluded with a puppy bath. She was quite skinny when all wet!!!!

Beauty Sleep In The Wrong Place

Little Miss was just exhuasted during class. It was hard to get her up and motivated. She's so sweet. We love her.

Princess Bling Bling

Cosmo's [Our first service dog that we trained] 3rd birthday is on July 25th, so we went to Target Boutique to get him a birthday present. We found a cute AKC Sporting Squirrell. Very cute. But we couldn't resist the temptation to buy the Little Miss a little something...or two. The best purchase for her so far, [aside from the hott pink collar and leash] was, a big, rubber, PINK ring. Adorable.
