#853 Spring Things & Dogs.

First let’s cover the awesome springtime things that happened today:

1. Ben got me a flower box and put it right outside the kitchen window where I can pluck basil, mint and rosemary for cooking. How nifty is that?

2. The roses we planted in January are blooming!

Now it’s time for gratuitous photos of our great pyrenees pups because it’s been a while and they were being insanely lovable today.

Baker has learned a new trick. When he’s not seen me in a while, he gives me hugs. He doesn’t push me, he just teeters on his bottom and uses his front arms to hug. It’s the cutest thing I’ve EVER seen. And he just holds it. Forever. Until I walk off and then he sticks by my side until I’m standing still again and it’s hug time again.

I mean… He’s crazy about it. 
Chevy doesn’t go for hugs, but instead for hand holding. If I stop petting him for one second, he’s petting my leg to get my attention, then we hold hands until he’s satisfied. Just as endearing as hugs, but less showy. Cause that’s Chevy’s style. He’s not an attention hog.

I sat in the grass to watch Ben and Baker playing football, and Chevy wanted to keep on holding hands. So we sat like this for a while and watched.

This means, “Take it from me and kick it. Kick it kick it kick it kick it kick it!”
Chevy normally plays football with him, but he was lazy today.
Baker, the attention hog.
Pretty sure they have ‘BFF’ necklaces under their collars. It’s a heart that’s broken in half and they each have a piece. They love each other. They high five each other. And neither of them are neutered. Isn’t that bizarre?
Anyway, I guess I’m those people who obsess about their dogs. Ugh. But in my defense, Hope and Mallorie and Mama have become those people too.
But they’re still not coming inside.

  1. That hand-holding and hugging thing is absolutely precious! Our sweet girl, Cora, is really starting to come around. She is still pretty skittish, but every day she gets more and more trusting of us. Sweet, sweet post.

  2. Amy!! I went to your blog and saw how beautiful Cora is! If you ever want to have some great pyr pups just give us a holler. Baker is the purebred who would make a great father! 😉

    Chevy was so insanely skittish the first month he lived with us and we eventually gained his trust by feeding him from our hands and letting him be alone and observe without us bothering him for a while. Now he is totally adjusted and loving and the greatest dog either of us have ever had. He's still a little nervous around a lot of high activity and he cowers sometimes for no reason and we think that's just something that must have happened before we rescued him at 5 months. I think he was just treated like a farm tool instead of a pet and had never been petted or loved. He is still a fan of alone time more so than Baker who has to be right up against us being hugged or petted. Chevy is more independent and mature even though he's younger. Cora will definitely trust you before long and she will love your attention, but she might always be a little weird like Chevy. But that's what we love about him. 🙂 Hope to see more of her here!
