Sally requested new pictures a few days ago.. Sorry for the delay!

Barret wasn't feeling himself the last few days. He's been really subdued and just not his bouncing-off-the-wall-self. I think he may have overdone it and pulled something. I can't find any other reason for his shift in personality. Hopefully he'll be back to his bright bubbly self soon! In the meantime, here are some rare, quiet time moments from Barret :)

Barrett is adorable.  Thank you for all the cute pics.  Love the video of him being so exuberant.

Since you asked for pics, here's a video of Adelaide and her chew stick last night.

 

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.

Oh Sally, he is a GOOD sleeper! He has no energy left once it is time for bed. If I didn't roll over during the night I can guarantee he wouldn't move an inch. Unfortunately he insists on "spooning" with me. Every time I roll over, he has to get up and snuggle against my stomach under the covers, it is quite a production, LOL

Karma, thanks so much for sharing the video! I was hoping someone would share their gratuitous pics here too :) I don't think Addy could possibly be more relaxed and happy as she is chewing that bone! She looks soo content. Love it. 

Have a good weekend everyone!

Michelle and Karma, 

The fact that both of you took the time to comment on this thread means the world to me. I think about you often and I hope you are healing with each breath you take (even if only by one quadrillionth of a meter at a time).

Well, my tri-pug is only in invisible form now, so my gratuitous photos are of the quad pugs.

This is quad pug boy Obie on his birthday last month (7) and makes me smile every time I look at it.

Happy Friday to all and Happy weekend.

Karen,

Obie is adorable.  I bet he's a little wiggle butt.  Another pup I'd just love to moosh him.  (I've been hanging around Erica too much).

Obie! Is that a smile on your face! Wow you look so confident, so handsome and self-assured. It's wonderful to see you!

And Heather, I LOVE extreme close ups of doggie faces, those pics are so cute. And the one of Barret standing on the sofa really shows how he's gotten his balance and core-muscles all in tune. That's hard work! Nice!

OK now here's our Wyatt, supervising a construction site here at the ranch:

I've been watching but didn't want to steal Barret's thunder. On the other hand...

Trying to be friends.

From abandoned puppy to Tripawd Warrior Dude, Dakota became one of the 2011 February Furballs due to STS. Our incredibly sweet friend lived with grace and dignity till he impulsively raced over the Bridge on 12-15-12.
