P is for Princess, how fitting! Gwyndolyn Rose just happens to be a Princess!!!
Moving update! Tomorrow is the big day! Last minute cleaning and apartment inspection things today. Busy day, figured we’d get this posted early before our internets go bye-bye.
I apologize in advance for the sound…it was very windy (and cold) when we were out playing soccer with Gwen. Here are a couple of short videos of Gwen herding the soccer ball. She absolutely loved chasing it around and sinking her teeth into it every now and then. Definitely a good way to get out her excess energy, indulge her natural herding nature/instincts, and have fun with her. Though it is more fun with two people so that the human does not have to go back and forth across the field when the dingaling won’t bring the ball back. She only herds it to a stop and then looks at you.
By the end of our play time she was so tired but she is like the energizer bunny and won’t stop! She was a hot pataytuh (potato) when we got home! She even slept through dinner time!
I am tempted to let her loose in the soccer field when the middle school girls are practicing…she would love to chase them, I bet!
P.S. [From Gwen:] My momma hooman is nerding out over the fact that she figured out how to add an image hyperlinky thingy to the sidebar. Check out the Yellow Dog Project link over there, or you can just click on the link in this sentence, that works too! Momma saw a guy who had a yellow ribbon on his leash the other day and talked to him. He said that she was the first person he’d met that actually knew the significance! Not even the dog trainer he had talked to knew about it! In the horse world people put red ribbons on horses’ tails if they are kickers to warn others to stay well back. They also put red ribbons in their forelocks if they are biters. Dogs now have the same recognition & warning mechanism albeit in a different color!
On tonight’s walk we found a soccer ball! We didn’t know if Gwen would like to play or not but we figured we could play with it either way.
She used her body, paws, face, and teeth to push the ball around and make it go where she wanted! She loved it! Then after a little while she got distracted by eating sticks of course but at least it lasted for a little while and she got tuckered out. She was a hot potato by the time we got home. 🙂
Sorry the pictures were a bit small. We only had Andrew’s cell phone to take pictures and it kinda sucks.
GWEN IS EXACTLY 10 MONTHS OLD TODAY!!!!
If you are interested in making a Doggie Driver’s License for your dog, you can do so at this link: here. It is through Subaru’s Facebook page’s app (if that makes sense) so you’ll have to be logged into Facebook to do it.
NOTE: We do not really live at that address, I made it up and then thought it would be interesting to see if there really was such an address. Apparently there are at least 2 that show up on Google maps in South Carolina and 1 in Georgia.
Gwen’s new bed…we bought it before we got her but only just recently gave it to her. I think she’s a little big for it but she likes it. Sleeps under the side table and will drag it out too.
