House Guest

Look at that happy smile!

Haku, a foster for the Texas Shiba Rescue, came to stay with us yesterday while Nicole and Ian were out. This little guy is a little needy as far as attention goes, so the long hours they were out would have been too much for him, so he got to hang out with Jeff, Koji and me.

And what a sweetheart, though his little doggie farts were something less than desirable. But even with that big ol cone head and a recent neuter, Haku tumbled a bit with Koji (with supervision, of course) and they shared toys and bullies and us very well. He falls right asleep in someone's lap and was just a joy to have around. Also made us realize how far we've come with Koji and how much we appreciate what he does. He may not know a bunch of tricks or commands, but the basics he has down like nobody's business, and that was something that Haku will still need to work on, though he looked like he was starting to get it but just didn't care enough. I know the cone is a big obstacle, so I'm sure he'll learn faster once that bad boy is finally off.

Hopefully his forever family is found soon. He'll be a great pet and I hope we'll be able to see him again after he's home.

Round 2!

Take your cold back, Canada!

Koji is having fun testing us recently since he's been getting a little stir crazy. We haven't been able to take our extra long walks around the neighborhood or take a trip to the dog park because it's been riddiculously cold with wind, which has left no one happy on the necessary walks. We're supposed to get back into the 50s by the middle of next week, which will feel like a tropical vacation compared to the teens we've been experiencing.

Don't worry, fuzzbutt. We'll take a trip to the park on Wednesday so you can get all your crazies out. <3

Yessss, they're over!

Koji experienced his first snow over Christmas and wasn't so sure about it while it was actively falling. He was better the next few days when the sun was out but the snow stayed behind so he could explore without getting that chilly wind and snow all in his face and through his not so fluffy coat.

Hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday season, I for one am glad they are all over. With work, deadlines for gifts, budgets and babysitting both my dog and the family I am a bit exhausted and ready to start the new year off with a fresh start on many things, including job searches, costumes, better weight training habits, and a new camera by the end of the month.
