Long Hikes and Sissy Update

Hey Pups and animal lovers! I had to update you (even though mom hasnt taken pictures in a week and I have done so much!!) Today we went on a LONG hike with my friend Duke and his mom Lisa. They live next to us and we hang out a lot. We do a lot of training together (as far as loose leash walking). So today Duke came over and wanted to know if we wanted to go to the local park that has hiking trails, and of course I wagged my tail and grabbed my lead! It was right down the road so I know mommy appreciates that! The hike we went on was about 3 miles long and it was around the Resevoir that we cannot swim in (thank God! I hate water!!) For most of the hike mommy  had me on my lead to teach me loose leash walking even though I was sooooo excited at all the new smells but near the end she let me off the lead and I stayed with her BETTER when I was off my lead than if I was on it. If she stoped I stoped, if I even got 5 inches ahead of her side I stoped and came back! Mommy was super proud of me but super nervous (she calmed down after I proved to her that I was a good walker) And dont worry dog lovers, Mommy would never do no leash walking in public or around any roads!

On another note, Teagan, my sissy, is now acting funny and mommy thinks she is sick now. She doesnt know what it is because she is on all her preventions and doesnt think that she could have gotten the round worms I had a week and a half ago. Mommy did switch her food to soft food because she was not eating as much since I joined the family. Mommy knew Teagan couldnt resist the yummy wet food but today when she didnt eat she got nervous. She also wouldnt eat any treats, no human food (she doesnt ever get human food but mommy wanted to see if that would tempt her enough to eat something), and she didnt even get excited when mommy said "Teagan, Lets go Bye Bye in the Car!".... So Mommy might take her to the vet with us tomorrow to see if they could look at her.. OH yeah oh yeah.. and mommy took her temp and it was not too high.

So that is all for today!! My 15 week old pictures will be up tomorrow to look out for them!


  1. Glad you got to go on such a long walk and were a good girl! I was talking about the Care-A-Lot in Newport News. Most things are much cheaper than Petsmart or (GASP!) Petco. They carry a lot of great foods there too, so you may want to check it out. I buy Innova for Riley there and used to buy her Premium Edge there too.

  2. Hi Nova, it's so nice to meet you and your sissie Teagan! And you're right, she does look like Chewy, only a smaller version, BOL! Butt you both are cuties and we very much look forward to following you!

    We have to apologize for the lack of recent posts on our blog, our Mom has been super busy lately, she's starting an online business designing and selling dog clothes and she has been sewing her fingers off trying to get ready for the grand opening on October 1! Butt we hope that after that she can get back to doing our posts for us!

    Waggles & Chi kisses, Chewy & Lilibell
