Fur Babies Wednesday

You asked for some fuzzy eye candy, so here it is!Finn is growing like a weed. I'm not sure what he weighs at this point, only that I try not to carry him. I'm assuming that he's between 40-50 pounds at this point, but its hard to tell with all the wiggling. He and I are walking a mile and a half every day and I'm fixing to make it longer. You can see on his back, he is growing in big dog fur and it looks like it will have a little bit of curl to it. He looks more like a small, big dog now than a puppy to me (if that makes any sense).
Our house is covered in doggy toys right now, but he's doing a pretty good job of not taking Caleb's toys. I keep my knitting out of his reach and we've discussed spinning wheel etiquette a couple of times, so he's doing pretty well with that. He is completely potty trained and I think he did that really fast. We're working on basic commands now, he's doing pretty well with Sit and Lie Down, but Come is a bit iffy when he's off leash. He doesn't pull on the leash when I walk him, and he's learned to sit before we cross the street, but I haven't really shown him Heel yet. He's never even heard the Stay command. He has noticed that his tail seems to follow him everywhere, and does his best to discourage that kind of behavior, but so far isn't having any luck. He's big enough now to easily jump up on the sofa and chairs and has found that the chair will actually help to corral his tail for him, at least until Caleb tattles on him and I come over to get him out of the chair.
Ramius hasn't really changed his stance on the whole puppy issue, but is now swatting AND biting at Finn. Finn doesn't seem to like it when Ramius bites at him, but Ramius is still being pretty gentle so Finn hasn't quite gotten the point. Of course the fact that Ramius is purring quietly the whole time, probably isn't helping either. I've been working with Finn on lying down (instead of tackling the cat) when he sees Ramius and he's actually done it a couple of times without me telling him to. So to paraphrase Chief Inspector Dryfuss, every day and in every way, its getting better and better.

Finn is such a cutie! We used to call it the 'teenage years' for our Bear.

Finn is cute. Poor Ramius, I think he needs a vacation away from Finn. Ramius do you want to come to Arkansas and visit.
