Our dog is afraid of Santa Claus

Friday, December 8th, 2006

I recently read a book called “Marley and Me – Life and love with the world’s worst dog”, a NY Times best seller about the companionship offered by a couple’s 99 pound madcap yellow lab. It’s full of entertaining tales of this high-energy dog as his owners attempted to tame him into the perfect family dog. However, despite their most noble attempts, the book continued to cite incidents that would make almost any other dog look like a dream dog. That is, unless you catch an uncanny resemblance to your own nutty yellow lab. This being our mis-fortune, we’ve come to regularly experience similar stories, one of which occurred last night in true “Marley” fashion.

Pier Jumping Indy

Yesterday I took Indy down to my friend Ryan’s house to have some doggy time with Cabo, Ryan’s 4 year old Golden Retriever. They’d met before at our house, but Indy was a lot younger…and smaller… and was still afraid of water. Not anymore! The pictures show that he’s pretty much conquered that fear!
We went to his neighborhood park where there’s a lake to let the dogs play. Upon opening the back gate of the car, Cabo was off with Indy in hot pursuit. They made a beeline for the water, each of them leaping off the edge into the water before the ball was even thrown! Indy continued to follow Cabo wherever he went, which made him very easy to watch.

Oh, he lost his first puppy tooth today too! Maybe that means he’ll soon stop chewing EVERYTHING!

Indy is growing up!

Indy and Justin

The inevitable is happening…Indy is growing into a good sized dog! At about 9 weeks old, his paws are still huge and he’s now big enough that putting shoes up on chairs just isn’t enough to keep him from chewing them! However, he was housebroken within a week and within about a day of installing the doggie door he started going out on his own to go potty. He loves his walks (more for the smells and people we see along the way than anything) and he’s already starting to fetch tennis balls.
