GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
Hello there to all our friends across the globe...
Our new 8 and a half week old puppy ...
has turned into a cute, little, Toby tyrant!
Unfortunately he won't sit still for photographs, and I have to snap away in a split second, so please forgive the 'out-of-focus' pictures today.
Our resident weaver bird is far more co-operative!...
As for Toby he's already stolen our feather duster on numerous occasions as well as various cleaning cloths around the house. He romps in my flowers and - of course - stops to chew them too.
It is extremely windy today, so he's extra playful and like the wind - he is really fast! Thankfully he eventually collapses to sleep with equal purpose...but that's after he's stolen my slippers or found something else which is prohibited...
Toby slept right through th night last night...probably because he gets so much exercise during the day!
Asta came for their 'puppy-play-session' yesterday and she is even more of a hooligan than him...obviously because she's older....but they had enormous fun! Toby spent most of the time on his back, but then gave a sprightly performance of what we may expect in a few weeks time when he grows up a little ...he can show some force too....
"Count your days, Asta, LOL!"
His session with Asta must have sapped his energy because he had only enough left to walk one block with Tammy yesterday afternoon....I had to carry him for the rest.
He loves the sound of ripping out grass - little tufts - which he then brings into the house. He has little sweet traits - for example he's scared of the wind - and then he comes running to me for protection. He's also nervous of loud, barking dogs, so he lets King-Toffee do the talking over the neighbour's wall.
As for the blog, he's still practicing!
There are very few occasions when he is standing still for me to get a good photo.
He is an absolute delight though and I can't resist an early morning cuddle in bed....mmmm...maybe not a good idea if I am to secure his future behaviour...but I can't resist! I really can't!
Who could say "No" to an angelic face like this?
...but....he ate up the King's food this morning!
The joys of puppyhood!
(To his breeder: Zena....I love him to bits!...he is the best pup in the world!...thank you!)
Sending lotsaluv to you all!
