|Ellimaybel||He's already better... at this point he's just soaking up all the love and attention I'm giving him. He has stopped limping all together, but he is still on major restrictions. Only going out on a leash to potty, no playing inside, isolated from the other dog. Every time he gets down I let him get a drink of water and then I make him lie back down on the couch. I think now he's more pouting then he is injured. But he didn't listen to me to begin with and now he has to. Silly goofy baby!|

|pyratemom||Oh Gunther, poor baby. You have to not get so excited after a bath. Maybe he just got a cramp in that leg. You can heat towels in the microwave (just warm not hot) to put on it for some comfort if he is still limping. Hope he gets better soon. If it makes him feel any better. Raina got a bath yesterday too and a blow dry. She hates having the fluff around her ears dried so I left it wet and now it looks like I used a crimper on it. Pretty looking.|

Oh my puppy. I made the mistake of telling my Gunther that he smelled like a dog this week. He looked so highly offended. I guess we forgot to tell him over the past 2 years that he is indeed, a dog. So today we took a bath. Just used baby shampoo so that he could have a gentle bath and smell good after. Afterwards I made him wait until he calmed down some before I took him out. During play he did stop to take a poop and then played a little more. Out of nowhere he came up to me holding his leg up and crying horrible. Poor baby. I know he's ok, just sore. He's using that leg to scratch so he has movement of it without pain. He can walk around slow (limping a little) he only cries again when he gets too excited and runs around the house. Which we are keeping under control. I gave him some aspirin and now he's sleeping under the dining room table. I feel bad for him.
My poor snuggle bunny

The blanket must pay!!!!!!!!!!!!!
New game. (Hubby and I really have too much time on our hands) We have declared Gunther our "snuggle bunny". He was getting a little riled up attacking hubby's feet and when he laid down on the couch we tagged teamed him with hugs and lots of cheesy sounding "snuggle bunny!" words. Humiliated, hyper, and crazy Gunther proceeded to jump down into zoomies. I sat in the corner of the couch where he would jump up, nip at my hands while jumping on me, then zoom back down. So I got up all big and tough looking and said "NOW WHAT????". He grabbed the only remaining blanket in the house and carried it through his zoomies.
Ok Gunther, you're da man.

Toys... I have all of Stella's toys, from the first one to the last. She never wrecked them, just got dirty, washed, dirty again. Along comes Fritz, not only does he inherit Stella's toys, but he gets his own. He wrecks them in less than 5 minutes..and he is on his second pool!
So, like Gunther, he too is adoreable and he knows it!

|Ellimaybel||Silliness. When we play outside it's always either with both kongs or with one kong and the red ball. Which used to be a soft baseball but the white part got stripped off. But when I put Gunther's pool up he has a list of toys that HAVE to be in the pool. The rubber football, soccer ball, basketball, and both kongs. Mind you, we don't play with the rubber balls. If they aren't in the pool he will go get them, one by one, and put them in. Which is always hilarious because he stops about 20 times each time because he can't carry all 3 at once and he doesn't want to risk me taking one of them. The antics of these characters!|

New toys last around here until the novelty of a new toy wears off then they lose stuffing, feet, heads, etc. The only one I've kept relatively in one piece is a stuffed iguana that a friend gave Raina as a reward for catching a real iguana. We play with it until she lays down to gnaw on it and that is when I substitute a different toy and put the iguana away for next time.
Pyrate had a green dog he slept with that he never chewed on. I still keep it in a basket by my front door and Raina doesn't touch it, even when she gets her bear out of the same basket. She knows that it is Pyrate's green dog and respects that.

Gunther is over the walrus. He moved onto Elephant love in the recent past. Today I caught him trying to hump Cyclone. There will be NO Cyclone love in this house!!!!!!!!
I am GUNTHER!!!!!!!!!!!! I sniff out trouble and treats. I will bark so ferociously that you won't even think about coming onto my property. I will charge at you before mom even knows what happened, but don't worry if you aren't a threat she'll rein me in. I will get the zoomies and attack your feet and there is nothing anyone can do about it. I will play fetch until I can't walk anymore. Then I will just lie there with the ball in my mouth until you throw it again. I ...will stick my nose wherever I please, I will lick you where you don't want to be licked, I will soak my mouth in water and then come rub my head all over you. I will ham up every moment so that you feel guilty about not spending every waking second paying attention to me and only me.
The best news? There is NOTHING you can do about it because I'm adorable and I know it!

|Ellimaybel||Yep normally stuffies don't last long at all around here. I think he's learning though that when he chews them up, I have to throw them away. But this, this is walrus love. Plain and simple.|
