Gather your load, prepare to travel the road..

Posted in Woof at 10:39 am by arfnwoof

It’s time to shake off this sullen mood and take a drive.  There’s nothing a good doggie loves more than a fast car with an open window, and I think the guys could use a little sun, dirt and water.  

Thanks for the puppy updates that have been coming in; And for those of you too enamored with your new babies to let me know how they’re doing, *ahhem* I forgive you, but realize that I’m used to waking up to that adorable face in the morning!

Go your own way

Posted in Woof at 12:02 pm by arfnwoof

*sniff* That’s it.  The last baby just left.  Its both sad and happy times, but there’s no way to not miss them.  At least I know they have their own way to go and a lot of people that already love them.  Still, it’s a lonely desert afternoon.

All Smiles

Posted in Woof at 1:16 pm by arfnwoof

I think this has got to be my favorite out of all the puppy pictures I’ve taken over the last few months.

allsmilesI still cant quite fathom how they went from wet, whiny, gooey little blobs to these handsome, silly, sweet little dogs, but here they are.  They still have the puppy chub, but look at those long faces;  And talk about teamwork, they’ve already figured that if a few of them distract me, the rest can build a dog-pyramid to get into the food bags! IANA has been pretty spry for a mama lately and chases the little guys around the house.  I guess she figures I could use some help, but after she’s had enough its always *scratch scratch* at the door and “Hey Ma, could you watch the kids while I go out for a while?” :)  Dogs, gotta love ’em.

Pack of Ninjas

Posted in Woof at 3:47 pm by arfnwoof

Its been a busy week, and boy am I envious of the pups energy.  They’re boldly exploring where no pup has explored before (or so they think) and I keep pulling puppies out of interesting crevices.  I thought the bookshelf was haunted when the paperbacks started moving on their own, but moments later a cheeky Cache springs out and laughs at what a scardy cat the Big Head Lady is. :)  Afterwards the livingroom erupted into an old kung fu movie, or some sort of ancient puppy martial art at least. (I’m not going to question the technique of those skilled warriors, are you?)  

And on a geeky note, we saw the new Star Trek, which was pretty fun.  Packet of course was upset at us for not taking him along to see his hero, his middle name IS Tiberius after all.

Nap and a Sunbeam

Ahh the good life

Ahh the good life


We’re all back from the vet and now I have just the confirmation a proud puppy parent needs; the vet staff all agreed these are the sweetest babies *grin*  Shots and wormings went well and I don’t think the pups held it against the Dr. for her surprise needle assault.  The weigh-in results were topsy trurvy, just like every week.  This time Token and Parity are tied for smallest with ODI getting the heavyweight title.  El Bidi is actually earning her keep playing big sis to the little ones, and they think pile on the chihuahua is the best game ever.  Eventually being sweet and lovable takes its toll and puppy energy must be replenished with the help of a nap and a sunbeam.  As the late Mr. Vonnegut would say, If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.

And Occasionally, Otters.

Posted in Woof at 8:31 am by arfnwoof

The pack and I are headed off to the vet today, so while we’re gone I’ll leave you with a little something from Emmet, Ma Otter, and Mr. Henson.   (* There sure is nothing like Ma Otter’s voice to bring out a howl in the pups *)

You’ve got a good thing goin’ baby!

Posted in Woof at 11:38 pm by arfnwoof

The pups are out and romping about. Everyone is starting to develop a little bit of individual spunk. Parity and ODI are team adventure(although ODI is a total mamas boy), Cache is my little talker, Star and Patch are snuggle partners and Token is his father’s son right down to his love of all things both bouncy and ball. Anyway I hope you enjoy the new video, and I hope Goose likes his new “Girlfriend”, Star. (* Who’s that singing, you ask? It’s Matthew Sweet, who also does a mean cover of the Scooby Doo theme *)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Growin’ Up

Posted in Woof at 6:36 pm by arfnwoof


But she's soooo tasty

But she's soooo tasty

The kids will be 5 weeks old tomorrow!  It seems like they change every day, with the cuteness increasing exponentially.  They’re total hams now and love to play with their toys and each other.  Check out the new pics, they sure do grow up fast.

Will you?

Posted in Woof at 6:35 pm by arfnwoof

You know, with all the tech do-dads around here I think we could assemble a working starship Enterprise, but somehow we’re without a true video camera.  Until Scotty beams us down one the video mode on the Olympus will have to do.  Hopefully this will make up for my slacking on getting new pics up.  Can you really be mad at me after those faces?  :)

Over the wall

Posted in Woof at 10:34 am by arfnwoof

It’s happened.  The slow quiet times are officially over, we have entered puppy madness.  Littlest of them all, Star was the first over the whelping box wall.  No more than 30 seconds after her paws hit the ground a revelation hit the rest of the puppies: Hey, We can get out of here!

So now while the pups explore their new room the rest of us are getting ready for a crazy, crazy month.
