Comes running in
Jumps on the couch
What’s that noise?
I’ve never heard that…
Lets sit quietly
Watch what’s happening
Just in time for the laundry to be done…
My dog’s puppy sister has never heard kittens before. By the time we got her, all of our kittens were grown up. She came rushing into the living room while I was watching a clip about a kitten trying to steal someone’s drink and was Not Happy it wasn’t being allowed. Helena was so confused! It was adorable to watch her lose all of that frenetic energy trying to figure out what was making that noise.
She’s asleep now.
And the laundry just finished.
Perhaps I had forgotten
Until you saw her face
Peering into the case
We got a puppy a few weeks ago. Ironically, from the same people we got our dog Vincent from. She’s from the last litter they’ll have as their mother was a stray that wandered into their yard and decided she really liked their two male dogs who weren’t fixed. They have a happy little pack, but only recently was the female comfortable enough with her new humans to let them catch her and take her to be fixed. Vincent is three years older than his little sister and he’s from one of the first litters they had.
Moving has been hard on Vincent and we had already decided we’d get him a companion once we’d moved. (We have, in fact, moved and are still unpacking at the new place.) We didn’t expect to be able to get him a puppy which he is just over the moon about. I’m pretty sure he was happier over her than the rest of us put together. He adores his little sister.
For all that Vincent likes to chew up our shoes (we’ve lost at least ten so far and not all from the same pair…), he doesn’t chew on any of our power cords.
For that, I am grateful.

My puppy just walked up to me, snapped off a bit of my robe’s tie, ate it and then walked away all before I could do anything other than stare after him.

Be soft, be sweet, be gentle, close the mouth.

Now, little pup, it’s time for your bed
And surely you need to rest your wee head
Perhaps just a bit more time to play before you lay down for your nap today.
Like all toddlers, my puppy doesn’t want to go down for his nap, which he needs or he’s likely to become a little terror the more tired he gets.
