Two MLBR alums got together for a play date recently and boy did they have a blast! It’s Bogie and Sugar!! These two have an ongoing friendship and we really enjoy getting to see them together. They got to meet for the first time earlier this year when their moms, who met through rescue, decided to set up a play date…and they’ve been friends ever since!
Mr. Cooper is doing very well. He's neutered now but still likes to pee on certain areas. Especially in Petco where the smells are just too much for him. He has gained ten pounds since his neuter. That's where he remains. No more weight gain! (Even though he wants to eat everything in sight). Low thyroid doesn't help either. He's on Thyroxin for that, which keeps it in normal range. He's a big ham. All 80 lbs of him.
We recently heard from MLBR alumni Rocky's family and they tell us he's doing really good. He's still having some anxiety but is learning some commands like sit, down, and shake. He loves his fur sister Meeka (on the right) and his non-fur sister Hayden, and is starting to learn to share with her.
Many of you have asked how baby Sugar is fairing. She has regained her Boxer joie de vivre. This is a photo of her being silly by admiring herself in the mirror. After lunch today, she ripped off the face of her lamb chop stuffed toy. I tell all my friends, if Sugar had thumbs she would be climbing trees and making mud pies. This is my tomboy girl! Hearty, strong and fearless. Today (9/15/15) is her 7 month birthday!
The prince of the Haller household is now 15 weeks old!! So far we found he loves any toy, but especially the noisy ones. He is happy as a clam to sit on the deck and watch cars and people go by. He also loves socks...we have to keep an eye on that as we have found them in his crate, his bed in the living room, the toy box and other random places throughout the house!
Sugar went for a 2 mile forest walk this afternoon to practice leash walking. She did a very nice sit when I stopped and then I walked around her for a short stay. Baby girl was tuckered out this evening and relaxed with her favorite stuffed bear in her mouth surrounded by all her other goodies. She is such a character and such a love! Sugar turned 6 months old this past Saturday. She is my heart!
