Nothing like Siblings playing. See the gallery. Rocky was only here for a bath and trim so he was here for a couple of hours. He did get to play with his mom and his sister. As you will see he had a great time. Here is the video.
Both Stormy and Rocky was so happy. They play growled and rolled around all over each other. It was grand to watch.
Marco had a fun time at his Pupcake party yesterday! Everyone arrived at 3:00 including a 6 year old named Sophie. Marco was thrilled that everyone brought presents. I wish there were more pictures but between keeping Marco and a six year old amused, Bill keeping everyone's glass filled...we were too busy! People stayed almost 3 hours and the last hour Marco slept in my lap.
The pictures are of him after the festivities and some of the more creative cards! He was a super host to a group of about 15. Such a charmer!
Last night we had all 3 pups in with the crew to play including Inula. They all did well to various degrees. As this was new, they usually just have 1 or 2 join them in play vs. getting surrounded. They had a variety of reactions. The Adele girl went - oh wow joy, joy, joy and proceeded to embrace the change. The tri Jeannie was more reserved but played. She assessed and thought it through. The Jeannie cream gal watched then played.
We repeated this morning without Akemi as Akemi was sleeping. It was just the timing. The Adele gal was happy, happy, play. The tri Jeannie didn't assess for long this time and just played despite being surrounded.
Now you would think the Adele puppy is better off but yes and no. She seems to embrace the changes without thinking where the Jeannie pup assessed.
Why is one better than the other? They are not.
The Adele pup just does without thinking and the Jeannie pup makes sure the surroundings are safe. She is the thinker. The thinker will keep herself out of trouble by making sure the situation is safe where the Adele will need human intervention (at least for now) to let her know if it is safe. She will remain that way unless she gets attacked and then she will be weary.
They are each different. Not one better than the other but the key is to get the Adele pup to think (read body language) and the Jeannie pup to assess quicker. To have the ability to read dog language so young and assess is a 'good' thing. To embrace everything is a good thing but each needs help in different ways. You learn what your dogs needs are without coddling to help them be all they can be. Coddling cripples a dog emotionally. It also will do the same to a human. Think about it.
This is Marco's new family. See their gallery. Someone said he looks like his Daddy Stone and he does. He will most likely be about the same size as Stone in adulthood.
I can't believe that by tomorrow they will all be in their forever homes.
Be sure to check out the videos. Soon the next (Jeannie's boy) will be departing.
Oh my gad he was just chillin in the bath. I can't wait to see him in the pool this summer.
He is the first to depart tomorrow. Oh my.... they are leaving us.
