Another Amazing Tripawds Three Legged Dog Blog

B, C, D & the GSV

A few steps forward and a couple steps back

It’s been too long!  Saturday was busy, Sunday was beautiful and today was a Monday (need I say more?).  Nonetheless, time to document some memories!

Things have been pretty good on the pup front, they are getting used to each other and getting along very well.  We have a few bouts of possessiveness – it can be almost funny though.  Bailey will be playing with a toy, then drop it because she gets distracted.  Delilah, who has never shown an interest in the toy will run over to get it and shake it around.  She leaves the toy for some reason (if I had to guess, to get Mike snuggles) and Bailey (who has been creeper staring from around the corner will slouch out ever so sneakily to steal the toy back).  I don’t get it.  It’s like kids.

We’ve been letting them be around each other without leashes on… and I have to say, the tension and snippyness has actually decreased.  Bailey and Delilah both kick it on the couch with us now… I mean, they’re not snuggling or anything, but tolerant of each other.

 

That makes it sound like it has all been sunshine and roses, which isn’t the case either.  They still have their snippy moments, usually because Bailey is being possessive of something irrational or one of them is a little too much in the other’s face wanting to play.

One funny thing is that in the backyard when Delilah goes to chase Bailey, they are real excited and D chases her and Bailey keeps running until D barks.  Then Bailey stops, I think because she thinks she did something wrong, but Delilah just makes a lot of noise…

We’re back to super cold weather again, so unfortunately there was no playing outside today, but I’ve saved some pictures for you!

Always looking happy. :-)

75% of the wolfpack, kicking it on the couch.  Mike couldn't ask for a better way to spend a hungover Sunday.

Bailey trying to help the melting process along by trying to eat the ice.  She loves ice.  Since it was 50* outside, we were trying to leave it open so the ice could melt (everything had gotten frozen into a block in there)

Bailey showed Delilah how cool ice is.  Then when we closed the cooler to keep them out of it, they kept trying to open it with their noses.

Just pointing out how muddy it was!  this is a Delilah print.  Or a wolf print, I'm just not sure.

It almost looks like Delilah is singing loud and Bailey is like "oh for real, tone it down!"

Again, happy Delilah, just being her delightful self.

Keeping a lookout for bees.  Yep, you heard me, bees.  She at two on Sunday.  We freaked out, naturally, so we googled it.  Evidently other dogs do this too, we watched to see if she had a reaction (she didn't).  MAN her chompers move really quick when she's getting one.  We didn't think to stop her from trying because it seems like a bee would fly away before a dog could chase it down AND sink their chompers in. Not the case, in case you were curious.

Delilah decided she likes Bailey's crate.  So she randomly hopped in their and laid down.  Bailey likes Delilah's crate too.  What a bunch of weirdos.

    BAILEY!! Your close-up is prettier than any human’s cover girl front page cover! You are sooo pretty!

    And I love the ome of you playing “dirty paws” with Mike! You are quite the athelete!

    DELILAH! You sure hit the lottery when you “picked” this family for your forever home! You just love snuggling! Clearly you think you are a lap dog!

    And the photo of you sitting in the sun with your lovely golden eyes “smiling”….-sooooo pretty! And I love the one with you “singing” and Bailey given you “the look”! Oh eah, and the one withnyou looking through the picket fence…very artsy!

    In case you haven’t guessed it…..I LOVE ALL THESE PICTURES!!

    It’s just wonderful hearing what good friends they’re becoming! Yeah, my dogs all “want” the other one’s toys, bne, etc. It’s so funny watching how the fuss at each other and “argue” over their things!

    Hugs to all!

    Hey Delilah you sing too? I sing REALLY loud. You should come over and we’ll have a concert! Bailey would love it!

    P.S. I eat bees. One of them hurt me real bad. But it was on my meaty bone, I wasn’t gonna let it have any you know what I mean? Bees suck!
