Milo 2 Milos Lightbulb Moment

Today was Milo’s third visit.  We have no idea what happened between his last visit where he was still a little scared and unsure and today.  But wow.  What a change.  He came in all happy and confident and he stayed that way the whole time.

With shier dogs we never know how long it will take them to gain some confidence or if they ever will.  With Milo though, we are happy to say he has found his groove and there is no looking back!

PS – I realize he is standing by himself in all of these, but he is actually impatiently waiting for someone to come out and play with him.  In between photos he was barking his request for a playmate to everyone who was inside. They didn’t keep him waiting for long!

Camera = Toy

I’m pretty sure Buddy is convinced the camera is a toy and that he is waiting for me to throw it. This is fine by me because that means he is always smiling at me!

Come in to the Light

This was taken in the doorway – only Tessy’s nose and paw were out in the sunlight and hence, that is all you can see!

The Bomber

The cute little Bomber from yesterday got her wish. To be honest, it is hard not to photograph Artie.  Not only is she adorable but she keeps throwing herself in front of the camera.

I was trying to get a nice picture of Pepper standing in the door frame but Artie was trying to steal the spotlight!

any way you spell it- he's pretty handsome!!

When a terrier (such as this little cutie- Harley) want something they usually get it. With the power of persistence, determination, and sometimes outright theft! Here Harley demonstrates some key things all good Terriers should know….

The trick is to never give up. Follow them around long enough and they'll give it up. (Which indeed did happen! Buddy gave up the toy pretty easily..)

Don't be afraid to steal what is rightfully (or wrongfully) yours!
