Puppy Love

Buster has a new blogging buddy over at Ron Bailey's River-keeping place. Go see the glamour shot.
Ron, Buster wants to know if Roxie might like to come out to Goose Creek. He says he has found this great place up the valley where he could show her some turkey poop that he rolled in yesterday. There's plenty left if she'd like to join him (although I think maybe this is a guy-thing). Or, there's still a little of that deer carcass buried at the edge of the pasture that he would share with her.

At his request, I'm making Buster a pin-up of Roxie to hang next to his bed.

(He did ask me to ask you if you have any photos of her without her collar on. Of course, I was appalled at the idea, and he later apologized for his impure thoughts. Even so, makes me think maybe I should look under his mattress, if you know what I mean.)

Roxie reports that the celebrity thing is gonna take a little getting used to. However, the turkey poop excursion did seem to pique her interest..

I've found that rolling in poop is more of a gal thing when it comes to dogs. My males rarely did, but the females did whenever they got the chance. Maybe they think it's perfume or something.

Over the years my family have owned many labradors, and in our experience the females have been the worst offenders in the rolling-in-the rotten-matter/fresh-manure stakes! So I imagine Roxie would jump at the idea of joining Buster in such an activity.

Yep. Gotta say it was usually the gals who loved to perfume themselves!

Our young male Kelpie (Australian sheep dog) always headed straight for the old fashioned dairy up the road after he had been bathed. Not a roll in the hay, but a roll in the cowpaddock where the cows were kept before milking.

Harley our five month old Springer is in Sirius Puppy Class and they recommend play dates for solo dogs to build self-confidence and prevent aggression.

Harley had a play date yesterday with a young French was hoot. Harley no longer walks or runs, he "boings". The compact Frenchie resembles a manic canine bulldozer. I was surprised that the Frenchie had no problem keeping up with the much taller more limber Springer...grunting with glee as the games & chase lead up and down the stairs, through the house, out into the yard and back repeatedly. Everyone was exhausted at the end of the afternoon.

Next playmate is a Ridgeback...that should be interesting... it will be at the dog park. *G*
