FYI - since i'm using a Mac, i have no clue how to copy/paste these pictures, so they're all in the wrong order. but here's the puppy with Brad! and the one below, the two brothers :)
it's 8:12am on a Saturday morning - the first one i've had in weeks where i've got nothing going on - and i'm wide awake. why, you ask? because this weekend i told Brad's brother that i would watch his puppy while he went hunting.
now, let me say this: Beau, our puppy, is amazing. he really is. you hear all these horror stories of puppies tearing up the house, peeing and pooping everywhere, and the little saying that "God must've made puppies so cute so you wouldn't kill them." i've not had any of that to deal with when it comes to Beau. he's genuinely calm, well behaved, understands what "NO" means, and apart from a few accidents (in a whole week), he goes to the bathroom outside.
Brad's brother's dog, Boon, on the other hand...HE is the kind of puppy you have horror stories about. he's stinking adorable, but he's so rotten! he freaks out so easily, does his bathroom business in the house EVEN after you've just taken him out, and does nothing but run and run and run. Having the two of them together is even worse. all they do is wrestle and play-fight the whole time. there's no down-time, there's no breaks. it's non-stop. and unfortunately my only solution is to put Boon in his little kennel and Beau in my bedroom.
but they're so cute, it's hard to stay angry at them...
