Steven and I watched Best in Show years ago, and loved it. Who could forget the high strung Weimaraner's obession with his busy bee toy? So while I was online buying supersized squirrels for Shelby, I ordered her a hide-a-bee as well.
And Hide-a-bee is big enough for supersized squirrel to hide inside.
Apparently, Shelby finds this toy tasty.
All the squirrels from Shelby's beloved Hide-a-Squirrel toy had broken their seams. I look for a refill online, and finally found one. However, when it arrived, I realized that I had ordered too large a size. These squirrels are about twice the size of the original squirrels.
Shelby doesn't mind. And honestly, these squirrels are a bit easy to play with. And they don't get eaten by the vacuum. They don't fit in the trunk as well anymore, but we'll get over it.
We're back! Shelby's life has been a little boring as of late, so there wasn't a lot to say. That changed when we brought her to Pug Sunday. Here she is, meeting some new dogs.
The Barking Garage
No, I didn't do this, but I did seize the opportunity for a photo since Shelby was with me.
For whatever reason, only Shelby's tail was cooperating with me. Her face it seems was busy doing other things.
A skeptical breakfast
After coming home from mom's, where Shelby was gloriously spoiled and overfed, she returned home to us. In her absence we overlooked that we had run out of her kibble. She ate the last of it at mom's, and the pet store was closed. I scraped together some carrots and cheerios for breakfast.
She hasn't even seen what I've put in the bowl, and her face already look skeptical.
She ate it. With gusto, I might add.
Shelby the Monkey
Shelby stayed with my mom for a week, and while she was there, little Erin came over to visit. Erin has a dog too, so she recognized that Shelby was a dog. But she also thought that Shelby's face looked like a monkey.
Shelby and Bear
My friend Penny just adopted a pup from the SPCA. We think he's a terrier daschund mix. Bear came over to to meet Shelby for the first time today.
They got along quite well, though there was the occasional humping attempt. Sometimes the rough housing got a bit too noisy or too rough, and they needed a "time-out". Check out the video of them playing together. This went on for hours! And at one point when we went outside, bear found a way to get under the deck and escape the house. Is it any wonder why Penny and I were exhausted after the visit?!
A summer treat
We visited mom's again, and she had a nice suprise for Shelby.
The rough life of Shelby pug
Yep. It's rough. Soaking up the sun is tough work.
