The Voyage Home

While everyone else is settling in to their new homes and making themselves adored, I still have Raylan and Tezlin here who give me my daily dose of puppy breath. I sure will miss that but I won't miss still chasing them with a mop! We are making progress in the house training but two at once can be a challenge. Add to that the turmoil of trying to sell and looking to buy a house and I may have bitten off more than I can chew. Ah well, sometimes the only way around is through.

Zeke knows that the fastest way to a person's heart is with puppy dog eyes and he has that down to a science. He certainly has Megan and  Matt wrapped around his paw and I have no doubt it will be easy for him to get whatever he wants, including being burrito-ed in a special binkie ... his mother's son, is Zeke.

Vesper entered a home where her full brother Jax already lives and his nose was a little out of joint for a while when she arrived. It can be hard for the resident dog who has only ever been the Dog of the Hour to accept a little usurper into the household. Never fear though, they usually work out their relationship on their own and with a little encouragement and some timely corrections, napping on the couch together becomes a reality sooner than you imagine.

Rue won't have to worry about a current dog taking her spotlight, she has that all to herself in this house! She even has a big red pouf to destroy. Look at all those little petal shapes ripe for the picking. Can't wait to see what that looks like in a few months. For now it's a cute little photo op and she looks very comfortable! Rue will no doubt get the best of everything, as will the rest of the puppies, and I am looking forward to seeing them grow into upstanding representatives of the Ridgeback breed.
