I  know there are a lot of puppies going around these days... how are your puppies doing?  How old?  How big? :)  Let's see!

Adult dogs too, I want to see how everyone's doing!

Little Toby has been home about 6 weeks and he's doing well.  He's almost 100% potty trained and Riley and him are definitely best buds.  He's doing really well with tolerating grooming, just did a feet/fanny trim today and he just lay down on the grooming table while I did his paws.  He's also doing well with socialization - we take him to our daughter's school during pick up time and the people and cars all over don't phase him at all.  

He really has a nice disposition even though he is in full-on puppy shark mode these days.  Riley is absolutely covered in scabs from Toby's attacks, I don't know how she has the patience to deal with all his biting.

Toby is about 16 pounds at 14 weeks old and going for his last shots next week.  Waiting for that 16-week guesstimate to see how big he's going to get!   He won't get anywhere near Riley's 75 lbs and 27" at the shoulder though... I'm guessing around 45 pounds.

Many silly noises were made to get them to sit still for half a second.  Look at those LONG poodle legs on Toby!


What they looked like during all my other unsuccessful picture attempts:


The aftermath:  an exhausted Riley enjoys some quiet time while Toby is napping elsewhere in the house.  This pic of her reminds me of memes I've seen of exhausted mothers dealing with toddlers, haha.  She has this look often like "WHY does he have to be like this!?"... but she loves him to pieces I can tell :)

  • They are both adorable. I am so glad they get along so well together. 

    • It was a little touch and go the first few days, Riley was super stressed out and unsure of what to make of him.  Ever since though they have bonded really well!  It's so cute and we are happy for both of them that they are so close.

  • Our 10 year old Mila doodle laying the couch with the little beagle Murphy ( about 8 years)  .  He was a stray that was dropped in the   little community we live and when no one claimed him,,we adopted him.  They have developed a great relationship!


    • That is so sweet!  I can see Riley and Toby being like this when he gets older and has the run of the house too.  Riley is happy to have a little "down time" without Toby sometimes these days haha.

    • They look so cozy together


    • Debbie, Mila and Murphy are so sweet together.
