On today's adventure, Haddie learned the ropes of browsing. Walking the isles with no purpose in mind other than to look around and learn about this great, big world.
We landed in the Home and Garden section of our local "one-stop-shopping" place. I could see this Black Bear statue before Haddie could, as I had visual over the shelving unit that was blocking her view. I was prep'd and ready for a scared pup - but found only a prancing puppy that wanted to paw at the Bear's foot. Where is my "That was easy" button?!
We finished our adventure in the toy section. I decided it was appropriate to push buttons and make some noise. Haddie especially was fond of Mickey Mouse. She went into her Football Stance (buns in the air, while her chest was on the ground) and would spring forward ending with a Pawing motion and tail wagging. I let her get her wiggles out and then I had her observe while Sitting. She did fairly well, but really she just wanted to play with Mickey.
She is s a teething-machine this week - losing about five of her front baby teeth and constantly wanting to chew on her toys. She is self-entertained, so I am not complaining, but I am looking forward to when the babies are out and the permanents are in.
Tuesday are Toe Days for both dogs in our house. Today Haddie did not fuss while my husband clipped her back toenails. She has grown up tremendously from the first day we clipped. Yay!
Evenings are my favorite time to cuddle Haddie. She is like a soft blanket that melts like butter with all the love and attention to our constant hugs and holding. The kids and I have to get our fair share before we head to bed - and thankfully, she is less puppy-like and tolerates it and finds ways to give us love back.
She knows the Here command. Very confident in returning from toyland, following Cora, or exploring the house to see "What's up" with whomever called "Here!".
Our lil'CCI Roommate is a gem.
