The proper Diwali post gets postponed yet again!! We are actually cheating today, trying to get away with just these few pictures!
It is 2 AM and we have all been on our paws and toes the ENTIRE day!
Woof is recovering and his paw isn’t hurting much judging from the amount of activity he has been indulging in. He is still limping though. We just hope the limp doesn’t get permanent.
Anyway, for now he is being a very active, regular puppy. He is hopelessly silly and wags his tail so hard we both need to dodge to keep from being hit at maybe 100 beats per minute!!!
And he follows Mummy everywhere so closely she needs to be extra careful not to trip on him.
He slept throughout the day till late afternoon when Mummy came home from work and let him out. He hadn’t messed up anything, including shoes and potted plants on the verandah, or hadn’t even..err.. had an ‘accident’.
For somedoggy who has been inside a home for just over 24 hours, he is doing very good we think. There have been two…err…pee-wee accidents since today evening and no potty ones yet, which we think is rather lucky for us.
Those accidents aren’t something we liked and left us pretty worried because we are two very fussy-about-cleanliness labradawgs. But Mummy cleaned it up rather well we think because, immediately afterwards, on close sniffspection, we found the floor play-worthy.
The only thing that has left us a little offended is that he has been trying very hard to hump Ginger.
Poor girl, she is so pawticular about good behaviour and is forever on her best herself. She has been rather upset since the evening.
Mummy & Daddy has been saying BIG ‘NO’ and ‘Bad Boy’ which he seems to understand a little . But for most parts, he is just a little puppy and has a long long way to go before he gets moulded into a gentle doggy. Till then, well, it will be some hard work.
We are so thankful for all your suggestions and even offers of help.It is just so nice of you all and it never fails to make our hearts swell with love and joy.
Anymore suggestions, especially about controlling the humping behaviour, is very much welcome. Potty training should be manageable. After all Ginger was much younger than Woof is when she came home and she got the hang of things within just about 4 months.
Well, things will settle down after sometime, we guess.
But for now, we are very excited and very happy to have Woof in our lives.
We want to say a HUGE THANKYOU to each and everyone of our bloggie friends for your love and encouraging comments. Mummy says heaps of thanks too for your appreciation and love. We would like you to know that you are our inspiration. All of you have done so much and always keep doing so much for us animal-kind that it never fails to inspire.
We are sorry we haven’t been along yet to read your posts, but we will get back to each of you soon. Yeah, we know you understand, but we just want to do it.
And much as we admire Shakespeare and believe that ‘ a rose will smell as sweet by any other name’, we don’t want our little brother to be stuck with the name ‘Woof’.
We have thought of ‘Shadow’ & ‘Simba’ & ‘Cadbury’. What do you think?
Could you make some suggestions, please?
GINGER & BUDDY
