Laundry Day ...
Apparently Boomer doesn't know the socks go into the washer and not into his mouth to be laundered! Good thing he was diverted with a chewy bone. However, not before socks were everywhere from his grab and run routine!
Exhausting Day at the Doggie Spa!
I needed a spa day since my coat was becoming long and unmanageable! Nails and face all trimmed; bath and a total body clip simply wore me out!
Bichon or Retriever!
Bichon Frise means curly lapdog. Boomer the Bichon is more excited to retrieve than he is to be a lap dog! He chases any and all toys/balls that are thrown and promptly returns them to me! Great fun and exercise for him! I, on the other hand, don't get any exercise other than with my throwing arm!
Unfortunately, I can't get a properly rotated iPhone video format supported on this post. Go to the Darby Books Facebook page to see Boomer in action.
More Than A Handful!
Gaining weight and size this past week, Boomer no longer fits nicely in our cupped hands. He is 5lb and growing! He is more than a handful on training as well! I've learned discipline is not a mean thing. Boomer and I are beginning to stake our claim to our territories and I am claiming owner/alpha dog. Well, it is a work in progress. At 3 month and 5 days he is responding well to some voice commands. But typical of the breed; when he is in his 'blitz' mode it is difficult to get his attention. Like me when I am in my mode! Here is Boomer as I type ... dozing from an early potty call and playtime. Too bad I don't get to nap right now. I am off to a book signing!
Baby Boomer's First Trim
Boomer's first spa day - puppy cut! Boomer's Groomer is Adrienne's Pet Salon - great job! Now we can see his eyes!
I wrote A Sniff in the Park in 2012. Having a blast with books signings and readings.
