Growing So Fast

Bo is a joy. He loves to be outside with me in the gardens. He likes to help me weed. I pull the weed and he takes it, shakes it and carries it away. He has grown at least as twice as big as he was. That face! 

While the other two dogs merely tolerate him, Eddie watches over him. He plays endlessly with him and watches him sleep. Eddie is a good big brother.

Bo's days of going outside with me are numbered. He has become quite brave and wants to explore beyond the gardens. He is too tiny to explore the parking lot. He would be hard to see from the drivers seat of a big rig. 

See just how tiny he looks in that vast space? I recently noticed several spots inside the fences back yard where he could easily slip through. So far he has been too busy annoying Cujo and Toni Louise while out there, but I need to take care of that before he finds them.

Martha, the boy cat despises the puppy. This shunning only intrigues Bo. The hissing and spitting entices him to back up and take a running jump onto Martha's back. Martha is not amused, but knows better than to hurt the puppy. I have no doubt that he could kill the pup with ease. He routinely kills rabbits bigger than Bo. Martha is savvy enough to know I would banish him from his home if he hurt Bo.

As the summer rushes towards the next season I have been busy caring for my gardens. Having no swimmers to deal with has left me with free time to spend grooming them. I will have finished with all of them by the time winter rolls around. Never before have I been able to give the attention needed to all of the gardens in one season. I usually rotate them and am able to take care of only one third of them every year.

Not only that, I usually get a nap every afternoon! An hour in bed with my doxies is something I look forward to every day.

He certainly is a cutie. I agree you need to get the fences fixed asap, such an adventurous puppy will find them sooner than you think. Eddie is a good brother, helping you look after Bo.

Seems to me like closing the pool FOR GOOD would be a great idea. Fewer headaches, more gardening, and afternoon naps to boot!
I know. The campers probably would not be happy with that.

Looks like Bo is the boss! He's sleeping on the main part of the chair, while Eddie is perched on the arm!

I think Eddie remembers being the baby and being shunned by the older dogs. His best best for a new best friend is Bo.

Your puppy is so cute.
