Who was that?!

As Shelby get older, new experiences are fewer and farther between. She's 4 now, and she's just about seen everything a dog could possibly experience...hasn't she?

Not so.

Last week, she was sitting comfortably in my lap, when all of a sudden she bounced off and ran towards the door.

Who was that?!

I went to inspect, but saw nothing.

Still, Shelby didn't move from the door, so I stayed there with her, looking for whatever she had seen. Then suddenly a cute little raccoon face popped up from underneath the deck! Shelby was fascinated. She's never seen a raccoon before, but she didn't bark. I ran to get Steven and my camera, but by the time I returned the raccoon was gone, and despite our mutual patience, the little fellow did not revisit.

Pugs never grow up, they are ALWAYS puppies at heart! Our pug, Lucky, is now 5 and the only slow down I have seen is that he isn't as crazy about stuffed animals as he used to be. Glad to see the new posts, we check almost every day to see what is happening in Shelby's world.

So glad to see that Shelby had a great birthday and a wonderful Christmas. Hope she takes to the carrier soon. And about the raccoon, you sure are lucky that Shelby was so calm about it---my two grandpugs Apollo and Athena would have both torn up the place trying to get to the new "dog" in the neighborhood to play.

I hope Shelby doesn't run into the raccoon during her night visit to the back yard...raccoons can be nasty when they have young to protect.....looking forward to another year of Shelby adventures....
