Teddy bears or Terrorists?

In reality, neither. Just regular puppies, but they sure blast a whole new energy through the home! We’ve had our German Shepherd darlings for two weeks today and much as we adore them, I can’t pretend there aren’t moments of madness. Take Saturday morning, for example. No less than four steaming piles and two large puddles placed on the dining room rug. All within a most impressive ten minutes, not to mention before breakfast.

House training aside, they’re quite restrained. Nothing but the best for this thoroughbred pair. Only brand new socks, barely worn, will do. Although they have also rampaged through our recycling bins. Mind you, that could be considered civilized rubbish, since it is rinsed and separated. Then there’s the dining room chair that used to match so nicely . . .

Still, no matter the mess, those teddy bear eyes just make you melt:

I may be a pushover, but our older dog and cat definitely aren’t. They seem convinced of the Terrorists argument. And there’s no way they’re conceding without a fight:

Tough that I’m conflict avoidant, squarely in The Dog Whispererโ€™s category of humans who need training. Perhaps it’s time to tape every episode! Nevertheless, in all seriousness, we got these two for their lovable natures. And of course there’s the side benefit that we get lots of exercise, like Saturday’s session introducing them to their leads:

    Stunning photography, those dogs have the ‘I’m so hard done by’ look down pat already.
    We have a little cross-Shepherd, also had her for two weeks now, so you have my sympathy on the pee and poop.

    Hey Naoms, wonder what makes me suspect that Dave-the-Extreme-Sport-Enthusiast is loving every minute of all this activity. How’s the training coming with the dog-sitters ๐Ÿ™‚ ? By the looks of it, it may have to be Clare and Marc!

    • Naomi says:

      Quite right, Amy, he’s delighted! No dog sitters at this stage, but I’m sure Marc & Claire would do a great job – just impossible to tear them away from the bush ๐Ÿ™‚

    By the way, I love how we are growing this wee family of talented and interesting bloggers. Good morning to Cin and Nancy. Of course, we’re all tied to our chairs writing…
