Not my fault, man

One advantage of having two brothers running around the house is that Shelby no longer gets blamed for anything. We used to look at her suspiciously whenever something went missing. Can't find wedding ring? Stare at Shelby. Cant't find the remote? Stare at Shelby. She was never the culprit, but in these cases her undying devotion did not compensate for her lack of English skills.

Now that there are little boys getting into everything, Shelby is not the first suspect for anything anymore. I woke up this morning to find her chilling out in the middle if this toy apocalypse. I know she didn't do it. I don't even suspect her when I find chewed toys. That honor goes to the littlest boy, who is teething. We've seen him gnaw on the furniture, and even walk around the house with Shelby's chew antler in his mouth.

Good big Sissy. Shelby has that look like she deserves a treat.
I am guilty of giving my 14 1/2 year old pit mix extra treats. Always careful before now a little givey. She is still a good zoomer.

Hey, Shelby...Good to see you again. Hope you are keeping those boys in line.
Looks like she's about to give a lecture on the perils of misspent youth.

So nice to see Shelby active and alert and very much still loving her two "brothers". Have a great April and hope everyone enjoys springtime and outdoor walks! Love to Shelby and your family!

Hi, I just found your blog and have been enjoying it. This post reminds me of an ancient photo I have, of my daughter, than about 10 months old, laughing gleefully in her high chair as our dog Kiva snarfs up the food scattered on the high chair tray.

Also, if you like to read pug stories, you may want to check out my website, http://maijaharrington.com. I'm posting chapters from my book-in-progress, Funny Tails: Adventures and Misadventures in Living with Pugs. It's a lighthearted look at 10 years of living with 3 pugs plus various other foster dogs (mostly pugs from Pug Rescue of North Carolina). It's free, I'm not selling anything.
