New life with a small dog...

We aren't used to having a small dog.... things we didn't think of like he can get right into the buck pen through the big wooden gate slats and he can fit under the gate into the horse pen. Furry Husband will try to small dog proof those areas and I'm sure we'll discover more as time goes on. Sammy, Bequia and Little Toe....

We have our 7 strand, smooth wire, electric fence and we somehow don't think it's fair for the little fella to experience 9,000 volts until he knows us a bit better and knows our place is his home. When he goes outside we either turn the fence off or we keep him on a flexi...
Yes, we have a life size concrete dog. I keep telling you ... we are FREAKS!

He is awful stinkin' cute! I took Thurs and Fri off from work to stay home and play with Toe. We took him a'callin and he's very wiggle butt friendly to everyone, doesn't seem to mind traffic or other dogs. Zee Furry Husband with Toe-ster

We picked Booker up from the pet cremation place on Thursday and I had another sad, crying hour... I just MISS him. I can see him in my mind's eye like he'll be there when I walk into the next room. Nothing to do 'bout it really, it will get better.

Anyway, I'm fine right now and we are having fun with Toe... Toe Truck, Toe Jam, Toaster, Little Toe... ain't he cute?


This seems to be Toe's preferred sleeping position...

what a good shot!! That is one totally comfortable in his skin pooch!! Way secure I see there! Hugs on Booker...I know they say it gets better...but it helps little. Day by Day I think you take it...but it's month by month that it starts feeling any tiny bit better. Those broadsided moments are just going to pop up and hit you hard is all. Feelings that hard are good things and speak well of how big your heart is :)

TOOOOO Cute!!!! Glad he is settling in. I had not thought of the small dog issue. I had to adjust to the big dog view of the world (wait, Moose never messed with that .... because he couldn't REACH IT!!)a while back. Toe will find all the exceptions and "help" you. : )
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

That's so cute! I love it when doggies or cats sleep like that. I think it shows they really feel at home where they are. I bet he loves his new home. None of that, 'where am I? why am I here?' look about him.
