GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!!!
Hello there to all my friends across the world!
Whew! Why didn't you guys tell me that puppies are such hard work!?
("Mom!...give me that potplant back!")
After a sleepless night, the first thing that our little pup did was to sniff out the place I was hoping he wouldn't sniff out...and to sample one of my pot plants.
Then he claimed the big dogs' bed in our bedroom....
(Toby trying to take over prime sleeping space!)
I'm exhausted and TUBBY TOBY hasn't been home for more than 24 hours yet!
Oh man, he's adorable!
(Toby has taken to sleeping "IN" his water bowl!)
I had very little sleep last night (as expected) but I suppose that this will be the first of many. Tammy-Girl and King Toffee are very uncertain about the changes under our roof at the moment, but I am sure that with a little time all will settle.
Tammy is keen to adopt the little one, but is still not quite sure how this is done.
If you thought that King Toffee is absent from the above photo, think again!....If you look carefully, you can observe him admiring himself in the wall mirror in our lounge
(Right back of photo).
The mirror has become a souce of great entertainment....to Toby...who thinks that:
"It is good to bark back at a puppy that is barking at you!".
We visited the Vet this morning to get TUBBY TOBY micro-chipped
(I don't want to have any concerns about him being 'lost' and not being "found")
and then we came home to meet up with ASTA (the guide dog puppy).
We had tea in the garden...
It was 'fun' at first sight!
The two of them are going to be very good playmates, it seems.
They romped and rolled and shared toys.
Then they played in the water sprinkler...
TOBY knows to seek refuge under the chair when he's had enough playing.
TAMMY-GIRL and KING TOFFEE took one look at the prevailing puppy energy and retreated to safer ground.
Eventually TOBY 'called it a day' and opted to sleep up some more energy on the cool grass.
Later he retired to the "cool" of the bathroom tiles...
I don't feel so young anymore...any advice on how to retain my own energy? :)
I love the little mite to bits!
But now I am off to try and get some 'shut-eye' too! :)
Sending some of my love to you too...
