Training This Puppy is Hard Work

Those of you that have been following along for a while know that our desire to get another dog stemmed from the belief that Sammie needed a playmate. While her people topped her list of the coolest guys around, second on the list were other dogs.

Since bringing Emma home, I feel confident that we did the right thing by Sammie. She is trim, she chews on her paws less frequently (although when she does, she still goes to town), and she sleeps ALL THE TIME:

I think Emma wears her out! Their constant playing is adorable, and I just love when they finally curl up together for a nap (probably because Emma wants to be as close to Sammie as possible and it’s the cutest!).

      Thanks, Nikitaland! We’ve missed you around here…

        Aw, thank you! I took a break from blogging for a bit, but I will be coming back in full force real soon! I do agree that all doggies need a “buddy” to be with! Nikita and Bella are best of friends and love each other so much!

    Yep, you’ve got your pack there. So glad they are besties. Beasties? No, besties!

    Clearly you did a better job picking out a sibling for Sammie than Mom did for me. Snarky? No, not me…BOL! *ear licks*

      I still think your mom did well by you… Molly can’t help that she was grumpy because she was hurting!

        Oh, I wasn’t talking about Molly. I was talking about dumb-dumb Macy! Most.annoying.big little sister. EVER!

        Hahaha! Well…… She’ll grow out of it (hopefully) eventually!

    This is a heart-warming post! I can relate to the hard work part. I just posted about our puppy. It’s tough but rewarding, as you well know. Our puppy’s causing one of my cats to anxiously lick off some of her belly fur. I’m hoping they can get along soon. 😁

      Oh my goodness, he is beautiful! I’ve never seen a GSD like him before. My fiancee is amazing with the dogs and has done most of the formal training, but I’d say Sammie has done her fair share as well 😉

      Good luck to you with your cats! I’ve found that letting mine have a “safe place” where they can escape from the dogs is best for everyone.

        Thank you! There are plenty like him in the Czech Republic and lots of folks are starting to import them. Also, I agree about the safe place. My cats don’t get along but now they have this big, gangly interloper! Oy!

    I suspect Sammie is sleep-drooling in that photo, which I can relate to! Poor darling, she works hard 🙂
