Frou Frou


Our little puppy is growing, and now weighs about 3 times what she did when this photo was taken.  Need to take some new ones to show you!

She is a real tough nut and loves to go for walks with the rest of the gang.  But recently the weather has been very wet so we have tended to keep stick to walking around the streets with them - they enjoy this as they get to sniff lots and my dad's dog, Spot, does not like getting wet (!!!), but it is not the same as a good run in the fields.

So yesterday we took them all to the fields again.  Frou Frou loved it and did not seem to care when the water was deeper than she was. She just loved snuffling all those smells - the rabbits, foxes, other dogs...  Funny, but even Spot seemed to throw off his usual dislike of water and enjoyed splashing around too.  Maybe he was shamed into it - I can imagine Frou Frou saying things like "You're not SCARED are you?"

Where would we be without her?  Strange, we have only had her for just over a month but I find it hard to remember not having her in the house!

She sounds like a real motivator. She's not going to get left behind and she's not going to let the other dogs be lazy either.

Is she sleeping though the night yet?

Terri - She still tends to wake up at some point in the night - sleep deprivation is alive and well in the RC household...

They fill a big spot.

wReggie - They certainly do!

She's precious! That's one of the best things about dogs - they've got a get-up-and-go that doesn't seem to know when it's rainy or cold or nasty outside. So, whether we like it or not, out the door we all go.

I don't think I've ever come back from a walk with Santo wishing I hadn't gone. It's just those simple little things . . .

Sounds like Frou Frou has her role in the pecking order down pat. The exploratory nature of a new puppy helps you enjoy the little things in life.

So Frou Frou sleeps through the night now and you can all get your rest? That is the cutest little dog, it will be interesting to see just how large she gets.
