To Infinity .........

The new dog, Zeke, is here and a one hundred pound puppy is not easy to handle. We took possession today and it has been the longest day of non-ending doggy drama. Oscar has bitten and established that he is the king of this universe. Zeke has been banned to his kennel twice and stuck under the coffee table three times. Wall-E has cowered in my lap very nearly on top of Emmy the entire time that Zeke is out of his kennel. Growling and barking until Zeke confronts him, then he can only manages a squeak.

This, too, shall pass.


But, back to the title. I called Gavin to ask if he had read his last letter from Wall-E. He found the post with the title 'Betrayed' and read about Wall-E's objections to this new dog. Before we hung up he told me he loved me and I told him I loved him more (an exchange started by his cousin, Layla who would answer that she loved me infinity). His answer came back, "I love you to infinity and be gone ........."

I don't envy you handling a new puppy. I remember those days well and it is a lot of work.
Gavin's answer is very cute.

Hang in there...the new dog will eventually find his place. It may be a struggle getting there but it will work out.

Loving till infinity is a wonderful thing. :-)

Oh, great fun! We, too, had a hundred-pound puppy, who is now a 130 pound puppy-at-heart! Good luck!!

Ha ha! I love those brief little misspeaks that kids do that make things so funny!

Good luck with Zeke! Bunny thought he didn't sound too bad and hopes that Wall E will come around.

How stinkin' cute is that one!! I love it...this too shall pass, great attitude girl. BTW, little Miss sockMonkey arrived yesterday and I absolutely love her. I may have to wrestle the grandbaby for it! As they say...there is some mail headed your way! Thanks K and take care.

Oh yes the chaos of a new puppy into the pack! Chewed wires, poop and pee, bitten hands to go along with loads of love, licks, fun and joy. Hope they all settle down soon. X

Oscar may THINK he's the KING of the doggies, but with the new puppy weighing in at 100 pounds, I beg to differ! Good luck!

Our 15 lb dachshie OWNS our 120 lb Chessie - what she says goes and she established that day one when we brought him home. He is a big baby. :) I am sure Zeke is just scared right now and he will settle in just fine.

Your grandson is a cutie. :)
