We’re back down to from 200 to 120 pounds of dog!
For the past three days we had a Crazy (as in crazy good) Canine Christmas. Smokey arrived Friday and Sadie and Jaynee arrived Saturday. Throw Kali and Kloe in the mix and the dogs outnumbered the humans 5 to 3 for this low key Christmas celebration with Holly, my daughter, and myself….. and the five pups.
The youngsters (Kloe and Jaynee) played hard wrestling and chasing much of the weekend. The old ladies (Kali and Sadie) opted to sleep in the warmth of either the sun or the house. Smokey, being the smallest (yet wisest) of the group tried to stay out of harms way. Contributing only 11 of the overall total 200 pounds of dog, he held his own but knew when to run for cover to avoid getting smashed.
It was a howl of a Christmas for sure. All the pups were respectful of the house, the outside areas, and one another. Barely a growl or snip was noticed as this gang of five co-exsited for three days eating, begging, getting way too many treats, napping in the sun, rolling in the mud, and being dogs together. Spoiled dogs, but dogs none the less.
Smokey, Sadie, and Jaynee were gone by 2:00 this afternoon. Since then, and as expected, Kali and Kloe have gone into deep power naps.
And to all a good night!
What fun chaos! I think we’re all ready for a deep winer snooze. Here’s to a pawsome 2017!
Cheers Monika. HNY to you and yours and especially those two special pups.
Sounds like a good time was had by all! I’m so glad they all got along and the weekend went well. Personally, I think a canine Christmas is a good thing! We had four dogs here on Christmas Day, and it worked, but they didn’t get along nearly as well as your “pack” did. I think in our case, there was too big a range in the ages and the personalities of the dogs.
