enjoying a heine


kim: one of my curling teammates, conni, gave peanut a cute little gift. she must have paid good attention to how people open bottles, because she ate the top of the (plastic) bottle off right away. But then she put her own twist on things, eating off the bottom next.

peanut: nothing like a refreshing heine after a long day of work.

one year old


kim: peanut hit the milestone of successfully completing one full year on the planet. the only caveat is that since she's a rescue pup, today may not actually be her birthday, but rather the best guess of the vet who first examined her. however, we will celebrate it as such.

no more puppy food; on to big dog nourishment.

peanut: happy birthday to me!

in the dog house


kim: peanut finally chewed up enough stuff that i decided to kennel her when i'm not home. at first, she didn't want to go in; nothing a little biscit didn't solve, though. she now readily goes in and doesn't try to get out. i shut the door, but don't latch it, so if she pushes on the door, she could get out. but she's in her cage every time.

--

peanut: i like having my very own den. it's cozy in here, and i have a super-cool unicorn blanket.

soaked


kim: i got paybacks for leaving peanut out in the rain. she rubbed up against my leg, and left my pants soaking wet.

so far, this pup has soaked me for $1446.62

peanut: i was a soggy doggy!

rainy day


kim: one cloudy day, i fell asleep on the couch. i was woken up by a thumping/scratching noise. it was peanut, wanting to get back in. she was wet and muddy.

peanut: the cloudy day turned into a rainy day!

good day at the dog park


kim: it was a big day coconut retrievers at the dog park. peanut and bella (and lots of other dogs) had a great time playing together on a beautiful spring day. both dogs were eventually tuckered out, so they did what they could - stood and panted - until they got their second (and third) winds.

peanut won the longest tongue contest.

peanut: time out!
