DOT: love these pups!

My pups are so crazy but I love them! They get into everything they can find, especially Jackjack, and keep us on our toes but they are loved.

I have figured out that the doggie training in our house has been a little lax.  We still incorporate training skills into our everyday activities.  They know they have to sit and look at us before they can get their food.  They can't barrel through us to go outside but wait patiently.  I think they are missing the fun training sessions we used to do.  We used to do these sessions almost everyday, however, lately we are down to maybe once a week.  For everyone's sanity, it's time to start them up again and teach Carmen early how training pups can be fun!

Carmen is a big fan of giving the dogs treats so I think she will have fun with training!  She knows to give one treat to one pup and then one to the other.  She gets a big smile on her face afterwards when she's got a slobbery hand that then needs to be cleaned.  I want to teach her that dogs are there to be pet, loved on, but also that they need their brain stimulated and direction.  I'll try to get some video of our sessions for you!  Here's to some more happy fun training sessions to come!

Now for pictures...
How could you not just want to hold this girls hand?
I love Jackjack's eyes in this one.  He is such a sweetheart.
After walks, they often find the closest spot they can to just lay down and rest for a bit.
They both still act like puppies but they aren't puppies anymore.  Jackjack is greying before my very eyes and Abbygirl, she will always be a puppy to me.

Happy Dogs on Thursday!


  1. They are both very lovely doggies!

  2. Sis is already greying, and she's younger that both of yours. I've been assured it has no real bearing on how well she's aging...

  3. They are so beautiful! My Emma started greying when she was just 4 or 5 years old, while my Cooper, who was 13 when he passed, had hardly any grey at all! Go figure!


Thank you for leaving a comment! I appreciate them all!
