Weekend…AT LAST!

It is such a relief that it is weekend!

Ever since our little brother came home to live with us, life has taken a complete 360 degrees turn!

Without a doubt, he is cute, adorable and an absolute sweetheart but then, he is also quite a handful, which means he keeps us all on our toes & paws all our waking hours!


Last week was one of the busiest we have known. It is almost year-end and Mummy has used up ALL her leaves. Which means she has to work full-time without a break.

It is amazing how our little boy has adjusted to his new schedule.

We are taking the time to learn about him and getting to know him better.

We are making sure we get at least two major play-times, all of us as a pack, mornings and evenings. Mummy says these early lessons will help us form a stronger bond of love and trust which will stay with us our entire lives.

Just a little hard work for a few months now and we will all be richer for it.


It is all very tiring and leaves us with very little time for anything else. Even our blogging, something we just love doing at the end of the day, is suffering. We have hardly read any blogs this week and we are terribly behind. But we are hoping we can catch up soon.

Even though it is weekend, it is going to be a very busy one. For one, we need to replenish our stock of treats, food (both human & doggy), shampoos & de-worming medication. Our vaccination is due too.

And then, there is this business of getting new stuff for our little brother. And of course, his formal christening.

The debate on that subject, at our home has been never-ending. We pawsonally think it is a question of too many web-sites, suggestions and fertile imagination muddling Mummy’s mind.

But it is only so long that a little boy can go without a name. It gets really difficult for us too, especially when we need to introduce him to someone.

Well, this matter has to be settled over the weekend and we can then formally start initiating him to our bloggie too.

We must go sleep now. Days of sleeping-in on Sundays are gone! If we don’t want an ‘accident’ in our bedroom, we MUST get up early and take our brother for his walk.

But we are working on his routine and we hope to soon RUIN HIS GOOD HABIT teach him the pleasures of lazing about on the bed, enjoying the warmth of the early morning sun.


He is a fast learner, our little boy! We think he wants to be just like us!




Doesn’t he remind you of someone?



Have a good weekend, everyone.

Good luck with the name. Just call him different things and see what he responds to. That's what happened with Kendra.

He looks like he has settled in well!

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

LOL! Woof is a great 'copydog'.

Busy Buttons said...

Sounds like you have been busy!

Your new little brother is adorable...whatever his name is or will be!

houndstooth said...

I'd say that he's definitely following in your footsteps! He seems like a very smart little fellow, I bet he picks up the new routine and other things really fast!


Lorenza said...

I am happy to know he is adjusting so well!
I can see he is learning pretty fast!
Happy weekend to all of you!
Kisses and hugs

Mr Koda MD said...

It was meant to be!

Good to hear he is doing so well! And sorry to hear your Ma has used all her leaves so she can't stay home all day with you anymore... can you rake some more up for her?

Happy Sunday

Priscilla said...

Glad that Woof is settling down so well and you've already started the early teaching to him. Hope he can pick up the routine soon. He definitely is a fast learner, look at his sleeping pose BOL!!!
He's so cute! Can't wait to know about his new name : )

Lola said...

Oh, I know how it is. One more doggy is a lot of extra - everything. Plus Woof has so much to learn, too. I'm so happy that it seems to be going well so far.

We look forward to learning the new name, although we do like Woof pretty well. Maybe the new one will have something to do with Diwali since you all seem to be holiday gifts for Woof and vice versa.

lotsa licks, Lola

Sounds like you are doing a really great job with Woof! What a kind and welcoming pack he has found himself in. Sounds like he is going to be a well brought up doggy. Have a great week! Ros and Oscar

Oh, my mom says she sure knows what it means for those first few months being the hardest. Of course, I figure she's prolly talking about Brudder Ranger and not me, right?

Anyways, I'm awfully glad he's settling in so good and I just can't WAIT to hear his new name! Oh, and don't worry abouts visiting bloggies until you have time again. We know you're all working on the most impawtant project there is right now!
