A Bit Lighter

August 31, 2009

Phoebe ended last evening by grabbing one of Chase’s favorite toys and climbing into a dog bed with it.  She then laid her head over it and stared Chase down.  He grabbed a rope toy and flung the end in her face, enticing her into a game of tug.  She’s no dummy so declined to grab on and be flipped and tossed by the brutish boy.  She slept on the bed with us for a few minutes last night (that’s a demilitarized zone), but then went to her sleeping spot under my bed.  Carolyn says that’s one of her sleeping places at home, also, so don’t be worried that she is miserable and pining away.

I’m going to set a vet appointment for her at my clinic so that they have seen her at least once before it’s puppy time.  For all of you wanting a blood commitment that there will be photos on a regular basis (like daily), I’ll do my best.  It’s very hard not to take pictures of the babies.  On the other hand, there is only one of me, and the care giving always comes first.

Time to make the doughnuts — but I wanted to update everyone on Phoebe’s integration into the household . . . more later.

    I’m glad she arrived safely and seems like she’s having a good time!

    Ah yes…the corgi female lays down the law. Doesn’t take long for Chase to find out who is REALLY in charge here! Especially one who will soon be “nesting.”

    Big hugs to you Grandma Phoebe!

    just another way that Phoebe and her daughter are EXACTLY alike. Sedona’s favorite places are the couch and under any bed. 🙂
    Glad Phoebe is settling in well 🙂 *hugs* to my favorite original orange eared friend 🙂

    Good for you girl (Phoebe) and good for you girl (Penni). Sounds like you have things all worked out and we know the pictures will come when they come!
