My Dogs Sleep Naked

017 019

Yep, that’s right. It’s true. Every night before bed,  their collars come off. Which means every morning when I come downstairs, there’s two little wiggle worms doing the naked puppy dance, waiting to line up and get dressed before going outside. As much as they like their collars coming off at night, they look forward to them going back on in the morning. Their harnesses……..not so much, but since they don’t have a fenced yard right now, it’s a necessary evil.

The leash can’t be clipped to their collars. Tempest walks great on a leash, until something catches her attention – then she pulls with such force that she chokes herself – and she’s so stubborn that she’ll just keep pulling. Sully suffers from neck-bigger-than-head syndrome, which is exactly like it sounds. His head, being smaller than his neck, makes it very easy for a snug fitting collar to slip off whenever the collar is pulled in that direction. The leashes are necessary because as the bi-bosses of the universe, they’re quite sure that it’s unnecessary for them to take any suggestions about where they should not go.

This weekend we took them to King Phillip Conservation Land in Sudbury, MA. It’s a nice stretch of woods where you could easily get lost among the labyrinth like trails snaking in every direction. It’s a great place to let the pups get in touch with their wild side, an obstacle course of fallen trees to leap over, stone walls to climb, and feral scents to detect. I love watching them dart about like the little wolves they are, fearless and brazen as they conquer yet another slice of the world. I wish I could let them roam naked and free on their adventures, but what would the neighbors think?   😉

Wild Ponies

Tempest & Sullivan  They come racing full speed ahead to greet me, their furry little bodies bouncing off each other as they vie for the lead. Rearing as they nip and paw at each other for the right to welcome me first. Sliding to a halt in front of me, nuzzling my hands, demanding the attention they deserve. My pups are wild ponies.

My little ponies constantly race around the house frolicking, wrestling, teasing each other with toys. I love when I’m down in the basement and I can hear their thundering stampede dashing about overhead like a herd of wild oxen. Or when I take them hiking and they dart about like little wolves, sniffing, searching, stalking down their prey.Tempest Smiling

Tempest and Sullivan are the sweetest Terrier Terrorists you’ll ever meet. A combined 50 pounds of nub wagging, wiggling joy. Sometimes they’re just plain savage with their over exuberant affection and insatiable demands for attention. They’ll lick your skin raw if you let them.

Puppy love is not always easy. They’re a big responsibility, and, like children, you have to put them and their needs first. There are days when their needs and demands are overwhelming. Times when you’d like to go somewhere or do something, but you can’t because you have to get home and walk the pups, or you can’t leave them home along that long. But they do make life better, happier, and at times even easier.

Both Tempest and Sullivan are rescue pups. Tempe is a tall, wild haired Jack Russell with the characteristic terrier personality – complete with the big attitude and intelligence. Sully is a…..special blend. Very sweet, good-natured and agreeable. Knowing a dog’s breed can be important in educating the owner about potential health (and behavioral) issues, so I had his DNA tested. My little man is half Schnauzer, quarter bull-dog, and 1/8 both Dachshund and Pomeranian. But they’re both 100% adorable.

Love Puppies

I’m a huge advocate of adoption. There are shelters all across the country teeming with animals waiting for a good home. Large and small, young and old, pure breeds and mixes…..there’s a perfect match out there for every one if you take the time to look. And I hope you do.
