Muddy Dog

Brea couldn't resist running around the muddy infield at the little league field this morning.

Snow Day

Both dogs seem to like playing in the snow, no matter how cold it is.

Brea has started telling me when Siri has done something bad. She'll come to wherever I am and just stand and stare at me. In this case, Siri had got hold of one of those puppy training pads and shredded it, leaving little pieces all over the living room.

Two Puppies Need a Home

Recently, two puppies were dumped near the home of some friends who live on Frame Road in Elkview.  Due to conflicts with dogs already living in the area and the danger from the high speed traffic along that road, my friends decided that the best thing to do would be to take them to the Kanawha/Charleston Animal Shelter.

The dogs are small to medium sized and are good with people.  My friends called me about them,  knowing that I was a sucker not knowing that I had acquired Siri and couldn't take any more.

For what it's worth, most puppies abandoned in the country die pretty soon afterwards, from being hit by cars, from exposure or starvation, or killed by other dogs or coyotes.  Very small puppies and kittens can be killed by owls and hawks.  People who live in the country usually already have all the dogs and cats that they want or need.

So if anyone is interested, stop by the Kanawha/Charleston Animal Shelter at 1248 Greenbrier Street and check out these two puppies.

New Look

Yesterday, Siri met two guys who were taking a break from a housepainting job.  Just rushed right up to say hi.  Before one of them could wipe off his hands properly.

Most of the paint came off, except what you see here.

Back at KSF

This morning I took Brea and Siri to Kanawha State Forest.

Siri saw her first ducks today.

She seemed interested until they started swimming toward us.

Then she was ready to leave.
Siri doesn't like to go for car rides, but she isn't big enough to see out the window the way Brea can.

On this trip to the forest, Brea didn't show any fear of trash cans or large boulders. She seemed to enjoy herself a lot more.

Update: when I took Siri in for her first doctor appointment on December 7, she was seven weeks old and weighed 12 pounds. Yesterday, at her latest checkup, she weighed 23 pounds. She's twelve weeks old.
