Alanis meets Miro

Alanis came home from the kennel looking like a fuzzy bear after they washed and put conditioner on her coat. Then they brushed her out so that all her fur stood on end. Very fluffy and cute.

In the back yard, the big monster sniffed at Miro. He turned and ran to the back door, then came dashing out again.

This is the way he handles anything scary--run to a safe distance, then come roaring back to meet the Big Scary Thing. Alanis was very happy to find a playmate. She wagged her tail and sniffed him all over. She wants to pounce and wrestle the way she would with a grown dog but it's clear that she holds back.

When Miro Monkey-butt is too obnoxious, she makes a rumbly lion noise and he backs off. When Alanis is too rough, the puppy rolls onto his back in submission, and sometimes she rolls him over a few more times.

It's impossible to get good photos of the two in action because my camera is too slow. Between the time that I hit the button and the shutter clicks, the dogs are halfway across the yard and all I get is a blur like this:

Oh, well.

  6. Monkey butt applies to all my fuzzy faces,little human children and some adults! Not quite sure where that phrase came from but I've gotten quite a few looks when I've used it in the past. Looks like your biggest monkey butt is very happy with her new brother!

  7. If Miro is at all like my Airecraft, don't fall prey to the initial act of running away in fear, even though he is a just a baby boy. I believe this is pure puppy play.

    The fact he comes roaring back, fearlessly, is indicative to the kennel name and all the pups that have come before him.

    Alanis, be prepared for a lot of pranks. The puppy sillies have invaded your home! Btw- you look adorable together!

  8. Alanis,
    Congrats on having a fun new playmate!! He's such a cutie pie!!
