Blog Dog Wednesday

Here's your shot of Canine Eye Candy! Finn is now around 25 pounds and is starting to look a bit more dog like (rather than puppy like). His legs are definitely longer - when we got him he looked like a fat, yellow sausage with legs, and he's much faster. Obviously, we still have some growing to do to catch up to the size of our feet, but I'm pretty sure he'll get there. Mickael gave him an empty Coke bottle the other day and he just loves it! (Disclaimer: We check it several times a day to make sure it isn't getting chewed into bits and he only plays with it while we're watching.) If he puts it on the hardwood floor in the kitchen, he ends up sliding all over the place trying to catch it.

His other new favorite thing is an ice cube. He needs another 6 inches in length and he'll be able to use the ice dispenser on the refridgerator and get his own ice out. (We'll probably have to lock it then or we'll have ice all over the place.) We've discovered if we give him an ice cube, we get 7-10 minutes while his undivided attention is on the wonders of ice.Here's a picture of Finn checking out the carpet cleaner AKA Mom's Best Friend. He's still doing really well with the housebreaking and I'm using it less and less, but I'm not ready to put it away yet. The other night Mickael set an unopened can of Root Beer on the carpet and Finn started playing with it. We didn't worry since he was mostly licking the condensation off of it and since it was unopened, its pressurized, right? Well then we heard a hissing sound. The look on Finn's face was priceless - he had no idea that wonderful cold can thing had stuff in it! Out came the carpet cleaner, thankfully it was Diet Root Beer and cleaned up quickly. Sharp little puppy teeth will get you every time!

By the way, the thing behind him is his Shark toy that he's been photographed with before. He untied the knot on one side of the rope and has a stringy mess that he just adores. One last shot of Finn, making crazy look good.

Finn is so cute! I bet he was really surprised when that Root Beer Can started hissing and leaking! God Bless carpet cleaners.

LOVE IT! He is adorable and his size is a fun one because he's still small enough to be so cute when he runs and plays and yet big enough to hold it! Mindy

What a beautiful dog! He's just precious.
I couldn't live without my carpet shampooer either - I have the same one, but I use it mostly for the furniture since we have hardwood floors.
Hugs to Finn - he's just too cute.

He is adorable! He reminds me of our Candice when she was a pup, she turned 14 years old in May. Great puppy pictures!

Your post made me giggle! My appliance repairman told me about this client who had them all crazy because her refrigerator door ice/water dispenser was always leaking. The repairman couldn't figure out what leaked because everything was fine when he checked it. He got a call from the woman who very sheepishly told him she saw her dog using his nose to get a drink from the dispenser cause water leakage everywhere! :-) problem solved!

Our dog (who is two in a couple weeks!) still loves plastic bottles and will steal them. Sometimes the bottles she steals are still being used by someone...she takes them and chews off the lids and that plastic ring off the top, then after she chews the bottle enough, we put some food down in it and she has to figure out how to get the food. So it's two games in one. The ice cube game she mostly grew out of, but if someone will play with her and kick ice cube bits across the floor, it'll keep her attention.
