We are making things spooky around here.
And having plenty of fun at it.We are pups growing strong.
We have eyes and ears and legs and mouths with teeth…..that work.We’ve had proper socialization so not much spooks us. Graveyards are a puppy’s paradise. Digging practice makes perfect. They tell us to BEWARE of the spirits within……but spirits don’t faze us.
The only spirits we see around here are good. We spend our time getting into mischief.
That is what Halloween’s all about right?Playing tricks and getting away with them.We do things we are not supposed to do. We test each other just for fun. We play with the big dogs. The mama dogs. Great Grandma Maisie is amazing.
She still has a playful spirit. She shows us it is attitude that counts.She shows us the best attitude (at least for a Golden) is to be happy.We are interested in whatever interests her.
She shows us our noses are important. She shows us love and understanding. Going after her tail teaches us eye to mouth coordination. Grandma Maisie kinda scares us but we know she is teaching us to respect your elders. As always we feel compelled to put our head in her mouth as the ultimate show of submission. It is a right of passage.
Not everyone has the courage to do it.We are learning to play without our mama’s too. But it’s not all about play.
It’s not all about submission.We are learning how to be powerful and dominant. We can play rough with the big dogs even though they are the mama dogs. Without play what would a dog doo?We have toys that are not really meant for us. But everything within mouths reach is up for grabs right?Plants with flowers are favorites if you want to get a humans attention. It works every time. Puddles no matter how small deserve an investigation. Mama Jo tells us we are too cute.
Too cute.Too cute.Too cute. We are learning to climb mountains. We are learning to pose.
Much to Mama Jo’s delight.We search with our noses like Grandma Maisie taught us.We are mastering the game of tug-o-war. Heads or tails wins.We have a wonderful life and nothing scares us.
At least for now.
