Lazy Mondaisy


It's hard to believe we've gone from this (4 pounds)...


To this...12 pounds...in three months. But isn't she still cute on her blankie with her tum in the air?


I apologize for my raccoon eyes. Her shoulder sitting knows no bounds.

We both like to wrap up. She's cuter when she does it.


Chillin'.
She has a stuffed squirrel with a stretchy rubber neck. She loves it. Adores it. This weekend she decapitated it. Now we have a loose squirrel head and a random body floating around the house. She plays ball with the poor thing's head. *sigh* There's no telling how many stuffed toy casualties will result from teething.

  2. She's way too cute. How big will she get?

  3. Oh, you two make a delightful pair! I feel like getting a puppy right now, looking at that darling one with her tummy in the air. Now you really do need to read Roverandom. :)

  4. She's so adorable! I just love her pointy ears! :)

  5. What a doll! I don't see pit bull though. I see Welsh Corgi all over in those ears. I have puppy lust now.

  6. I love starting my Mondays with puppy pictures! She's adorable :)

  7. I will, Lezlie! Thank you!

    Danielle, that's a very good question. We have no idea and we're getting a bit scared of exactly how big she will get.

    I'll bump Roverdom up, Bellezza! :) Puppies are adorable, but SO EXHAUSTING. As I've found out.

    Nat, I love her ears, too. I could just nibble 'em (and do sometimes). She's really cute in the morning or when we've been gone for a while. She comes out of her crate with her ears plastered down to the top of her head with her tail wagging so fast I'm afraid she'll fall over.

    LOL, Terri. Gotta love puppy lust! She's a mixed bag. We were told she's half rat terrier (I can see that) and half chow (can't see that). When she's up and walking she's very pit-like in her hips and the way she carries a lot of muscle in her shoulders. Her markings and ears look very corgie. And a lot of people think she's a basenji. Who knows! She's a love muffin.

    Thank you, Sarah! She's ridiculously spoiled. :D

  8. Ooops, that should be Roverandom. Typing too fast again. hehe

  9. Andi, if she has Chow in her (I don't see that at all!) she would probably have a bluish black tongue. That's a dead giveaway. Yah, Bansenji maybe. They're pretty sturdy in the shoulders. Does she bark?

  10. Yayyyy!!! I love Daisy pic's. She gets cuter every day. I can't believe how she's grown. I love her ears! We were just talking about the same thing about our Lucy growing so fast.

    And the toys...OY! We currently have a random flamingo head and leg floating around the house, a teddy bear body with no head, a bat wing and a stuffed baseball sans stuffing...They love to destroy toys. A good suggestion, what we did recently, was got a bunch of stuffed animals from a yard sale, we bring them out one by one once she destroys one. You just have to make sure you get the one's with stuffing and not beans/beads and remove the eyes and nose or whatever else is plastic on the outside. Also, the noisier they are the better!!!

  11. Terri, the black tongue was the first thing we looked for when they said chow. No go. Also, she does bark instead of the weird noise basenji's are supposed to make. I'm leaning toward rat terrier and pit, although her coat is a little less slick than what I would expect from either of those breeds. Which would suggest corgi.
    She has webbed feet! Maybe lab? LOL, who knows.

  12. Funky, it's so odd, she loves tearing these animals up, but she hardly ever pulls out any stuffing! She has a stuffed elephant right now that's split down the back, but she hasn't messed with the stuffing at all. So weird. My other dogs have always loved disemboweling their toys.

    We've had to start rotating Daisy's toys since she gets bored with them pretty quickly. We leave out a few of her favorites all the time (stuffed rat, her first toy and a stuffed chicken with rope feet). Also, her balls. She loves playing ball. But we have a bunch of other stuffed and plastic toys, ropes, etc. that we rotate.

    She has a rubber squeaky chicken leg quarter that looks barbecued, and it looks SO REAL. It's freakin' weird watching her run around the house with it hanging out of her mouth.

  13. Certainly very cute. Between the size and the ears, perhaps she's part donkey.

  14. Just as long as it's stuffed squirrels she's attacking. The other sort have a tendency to bite back!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Stu, we're guessing part goat, actually, given her tendency to eat everything. lol

    Amen, Ann! So far the only live creature she's taken a run at was a Mourning Dove. Eeek!

  16. lol, poor decapitated stuffed squirrel. She's so adorable. And yes, puppies can be exhausting...but so worth the trouble!

  17. Eventhough it is fun when they are cute and little she is still a cutie. Fun pics!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Adorable pictures! They do get big fast.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow, she's gotten big fast! And still such a cutie.

    No doubt the destroyed toy is one of many. We've gotten Rusty a few squeaky chipmunks. One of them lasted a whole 5 days before getting shredded.

  20. Everyone knows that decapitation is the logical end result of an unhealthily adoring relationship! Hee! (Daisy's adorable...my condolences to the decapitated squirrel.)

  21. What a beautiful girl - I'd say Corgi and terrier. . . right ears, coat, and size for her - but maybe German Shepherd too if she's getting so big.
    In any case, she's lovely.

  22. I love those ears! (The better to hear you with my dear!)

    You two are quite the pair. Is she jealous of your reading? Mine are. They always bring worlds of toys to lay at my feet, or drop on my book, when I'm trying to read.

  23. How cute! My dog loves to decapitate all of her toys. Not only does she decapitate them but she rips their limbs off as well. There are all of these animal parts all over, thankfully the stuffed kind!
