Puppy Love

Tuesday, April 13, 2010
E continues to pee in the yard like a dog. And it wouldn't be so bad (I guess) if it was just our yard. But we were recently at a friend's house and when I looked down, E was peeing in the garden the kids had been playing in. He had his pants down around his ankles and looked up to announce that he was "making mud." Right on.


B is ferociously trying to crawl. Yesterday, Scout dropped his ball and it rolled in front of her. I watched her as she threw her arms out in front of her, dug her toes in and hinged in the middle till her butt was all the way up in the air...but then she tipped left. She did it again, this time tipping right. I thought for sure that she was going to end up with her chin or forehead in the carpet like she normally does, but third time was the charm. She managed to commando crawl the couple of inches to the ball, which I proceeded to immediately yank from her successful little hands. She reminds me so much of a puppy - she's got the front going one way and the butt going another way and it's just so stinkin' cute how uncoordinated her attempts are.

She also scrunches up her faces and breathes in and out really fast, like she's sniffing. Every time she does it, E laughs and screams, "You smell like strawberries!"


Last week I took Scout to the vet to have a growth on his throat checked out. It's not cancer but just a lumpy reminder that he's getting old. He is such a good dog. I know he still has a lot of life left in him, but having to face the fact that he's not a young pup any more really sucks. I'm glad it's finally spring around here and that we'll be taking a lot more pictures like this soon.


I mean seriously, is that a handsome pup or what?
